Jigsaw fish gets a face lift

I’ve started on painting my jigsaw fish. Rather than paint, which would likely just end up in a big mess, I’ve gone for pen and ink. Each piece was taken off, drawn on and then put back in place. Its going to take a while, but i’m pleased with the result so far.

Christmas Stars

I meant to share these with everyone earlier, but Christmas craziness took over. At the holiday club I help run each Christmas we made two different Christmas Stars this year. One idea I got from minieco.co.uk and the other from my head! The cut and fold stars are great for small kids – everything can be prepared in advance. And the woolen stars (wool wrapped around a wire star shape) are easy peasy for little fingers. They also make pretty cool decorations.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Have a great New Year!
