My Grandchildren are always sending/making me cards and pictures which are dotted all over the house but I wanted somewhere to display them properly, so when I saw some giant pegs whilst shopping in Norwich the idea was formed. My husband and I have made a display board, it just needs some string attaching and hanging up.
We are both still choking from the blackboard paint fumes, as old as we are we never learn. Definitely not an inside job!!!
I love scrapbooking, I have some great photos of the children . I tried this week to put together pages onto a canvas so that I could see them all the time. I had to experiment with the adhesives but I enjoyed the process.
I am not sure that they will last very long without becoming too dusty. Maybe some sort of gloss/varnish may help? I would be grateful for any suggestions you may have.
I will do a third canvas when Bertie's baby sister is born and add her name to the art board. Amie is still been monitored daily but is doing well at home. We are visiting her on Sunday.
Mothering Sunday/Spring/Easter had me thinking about the décor and so I sorted out some decorations ready to add some touches later today. I have also made a couple of new table runners.
I love to make Easter trees and intend to go for a stroll and collect some twigs later today.
I have also made some new cleaning cloths to brighten the kitchen for the season. I recycle old towels with scraps of material a quick job but saves not only money on not buying shop cloths, but uses material that would probably end up in land fill.
Finally I have been reading and relaxing. I have a subscription from my daughter of Homemaker and my husband has Grow your Own, the gifts that keep on giving. It is nice to put your feet up and have a browse through. I was blessed also to be bought a couple of books by my daughters so another added highlight.
My five highlights for Five on Friday.
See you soon.
