I made another of those recycled tote bags for my shop update this week- mostly because I found that green and grey vintage fabric, and couldn't resist sewing with it at once!
In other news, we're in week one of school holidays, and Tom is away on a work trip. The kids and I thought it the perfect time for some messy art activities (I kind of miss those, since they've started school and kindergarten- although I wonder if perhaps I enjoy them more than they do) so we tried papier mache today. So much fun- and really no excuse not to do it anytime- there are always newspapers lying around here and flour and water paste is easy to make. I was spurred on to try making these bowls with the kids after receiving my copy of Soulemama's book Handmade Home a few weeks ago- so many great ideas in there. I like mixing together things like homemade glue so much more than real cooking.
Our bowls are drying outside on the porch now, proudly displayed to anyone who may walk by on the street.
