Good Saturday Afternoon,
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, my Sister is coming over today and we have tickets to go to The Cotswold Wildlife park, then we are going on to Becca's pub in Burford, she has a Beer Festival on this weekend, so we thought we would go and have something to eat with her so that she gets to spend time with Emily too. I am looking forward to seeing her although I have spoken to her more this week than ever before.
I thought it would be fun to share our Village Scarecrow Trail with you, we had a walk around a couple of times, they had a competition where you had to guess the name (from a list of names that had a few Red Herrings added too).
So here we go.....
As you can see a very varied selection of creations, some not what I considered to be 'Scarecrows ', having said that it was the thought of having to produce a 'technically correct' was what put us off entering, so next year I think we will definitely have a go! I wonder what the theme will be next year?! This year it was 'Key Workers'!
There were collection boxes around the trail for donations, the Charity that they were collecting for
Is a Therapy through Gardening charity based locally, they raised around £800 which is amazing. Such a fun idea, I was amazed at how many people visited.
Janet has made another of her amazing boxes, this one is in the style of a Book.
That Lion is so majestic Janet and I'm guessing that being made from Air Drying Clay means its really light too, perfect for smaller boxes. This would be a great gift for a man.
"I have added a photo of my latest box.This box is already made and is in the format of a book. The box and paints are from LaBlanche and the mould of the :Lion is from Zurie. I used air dry clay and painted it in a LaBlanche paint."
Thanks so much for sharing your inspirational project Janet XXX
Michele treated herself to a little bit of craft shopping this week, I will leave her Description below....
"First photo-ordered the two sets of Christmas Dies & got the stamps free. Decided I’d place a second order= the magazine as I’d seen lists of gorgeous cards made using the stamps, Die & Embossing Folder and got the stencil + stamp set free! It was an offer with CraftStash plus I got free postage."
Looking forward to seeing what you make Michele, thanks for sharing xxx
That's all for today ladies, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Love and hugs to all of you,
