First up, it was my niece's 16th birthday and we spent the day at Mablethorpe, hiring a beach hut and enjoying good company, a close friend of hers came along as well and it was lovely to spent time with everyone!
Here she is fighting with balloons
We even ventured into the sea, well the kids did, I just stood squealing as I don't like sand - no really I don't, can't even touch sandpaper!
Would have been a perfect picture if it hadn't been photobombed by the bloke - hey ho!
A bit of cloud watching - found a mouse!
Fish and chips for lunch, deck chairs, beach huts, seaside!
An obligatory water fight
A ride in a peddle boat
And some crazy golf, although I was reliable informed that it should have had windmills
And finally a go on the dodgems
It was fab to see them enjoying it so much!
There was even a cake, courtesy of my Mum!
Other positives, are hubby sorting tea out when I get home late, some lovely meals made from scratch.
Said 14 year old embracing the holiday checklist and getting on with the tasks in hand. Most impressed with him.
Then thursday having a day off and spending time with him, he missed his last art textile lesson before he broke up from school due to illness. So he brought home his art doll to complete at home and here he is making a start on the same, he spent all afternoon, pinning, stitching and filling the same
Until it was completed, combining loads of different techniques
And this is the back - I love the hair
It has woven mocasin type boots
Fabric painted arms
Batik printed body
Needle felted eyes and lips
Additional couching on the face
I've also enjoyed myself this week, making mini books using the Minnie Mouse Do-crafts papers that I picked up, a friend at work asked if I could make a book for her which is a gift for a relative and when she mentioned she loves Minnie Mouse it was what can only be called a win win for me, because up until then I hadn't had an excuse to buy any of the range, I really enjoyed creating with these bright and vibrant papers!
And that my lovely people is the week in a snap shop, I hope you've had a great week, with lots of silver linings, if you fancy joining in then pop a post together, pop back, link up and we shall come and visit!
