My creative space...


A Christmas day conversation:

Aunty Rebecca: What would you like me to make you for your 4th birthday this year?

Little A: Umm... an Ariel costume.

Aunty Rebecca: uuuuhhhh.... okaaaayyy.....

This is just a very small section of a desk covered in mermaid sketches, sparkly pink, sea green shimmer, tulle, cotton, sequins and pathetic attempts at making quilted sea shells... this morning things are finally looking up ;)

For more creative spaces or to show off yours pop over to Kootoyoo.

Can't wait to see how this costume is going to turn out! Your table looks very intersting indeed! But maybe next time you could suggest a ghost costume! (sheet with holes for eyes) :)

Lesson number one - NEVER ask a pre-schooler what they want you to make for them. In my case the reply was a tiger costume. So I obliged. Fur 2 inches long clogging up my sewing machine. It's what you do for someone you love - but never again!

Your beautiful creation will be truly loved and cherished by the little mermaid.
