Now that Arlo has stopped having his afternoon naps, it's always a challenge to keep him entertained, yet fairly quiet, while Keira is asleep. Yesterday he was especially tired, so we sat down together with afternoon tea at the kitchen table. He's almost got the hang of using scissors, so we went through a big box of old paper and card and pictures taken from old books and magazines, and did some cutting and pasting.
Arlo 'custom-made' a few cards for two friends and a cousin, which we ceremoniously sent off at the Post Office this morning. (He was so excited!) Each card had a stuck-on picture of that particular friend's favourite animal, and a drawing of them holding hands on the front.
I used some of my precious stash of (mostly) old paper from appleseed, some vintage wallpaper samples and some other bits and pieces I'd collected, to make this set of blank cards, which I'm sure will be very useful to have on hand:

Now I'm trying to decide whether I have the patience to make matching envelopes for each one...
