Just another Saturday

Just another Lilyjean creation...

 Lj is concerned that she might forget things so this morning she decided to make a memory box. Using my camera (hers has no space left!) she took heaps of photos of her room and it was my job to put them altogether!

Just another day of the boys making Warhammer figures, spraying Warhammer figures, painting Warhammer figures and playing Warhammer!

Lj's note to her class

 Lj loves to draw and write and I love (biased Mummy) what she produces. She sits quietly and concentrates then produces her artwork. This mornings piece was for her class.
It reads...'To Miss Sacco's Class, 1DS. Has anyone seen a box with string? (This is her backpack which she made from a cereal box with twine straps which she left at school yesterday). She continues 'I saw a fox running across the road last night. We did not run over it because it was too fast.'

Always create

The creativity continues in all our different ways.

M and MJ have been pulling out all of M's old Warhammer models and paints. They love to spend Saturday afternoons at the table painting and chatting about the team they will collect. MJ spends his evenings writing secret strategies for how he can beat his Daddy! Even Grandad C has been re inspired to get painting so they can have a family battle at Christmas.

I have been involved in all sorts of little projects over the past few weeks. The biggest is putting together a Calendar for 2016 with one of my best friends but in between I'm creating crafts to sell at our local Christmas market, designing birthday presents and Christmas presents commissions. It seems there is never a dull moment in my days which is just how I like it!

At the weekend Lj made a 'laptop'! It had a mini packet of raisins as the was so sweet and so well thought through. This is the screen image. Lets play a little game of spot...
Can you spot the maze, the football ground, the school, the zebra crossing, the man walking his dog and the boy in the swimming pool? And just because I got it wrong...the other people are not carrying bags of shopping or wearing gloves...that is just hands!!!

I pray that my children would never loose their imaginations and ways of creatively expressing themselves. I hope one day they won't find themselves in well paid but life sapping jobs but in jobs where their creativity is respected and encouraged. For M and I, I pray that we would never be afraid to step into something new but we would always believe that God is good and desires to give us good things.
