Have you ever planned a project, got down to making it and gone in a completely different direction? That's how my latest Green Parent project went for me. Sometimes it's just more fun to go off-plan, especially when it involves using up whatever I have lying around, and a tiny bit of dumpster diving. Not really dumpster, but our giant recycling bin. Note to self... best to roll the bin back off the road before diving in it.
Pam is not only extremely generous on her blog with oodles of detailed tutorials and links, she's also a giver offline. I received this box of goodies over the weekend and what a lovely surprise it was. She made the wood-strip ornament and woven mat – did I mention that she's also very clever? And a brilliant photographer, which is her day job. Check out how she used the rain to turn digital images into watercolours, I'm sure we'll have ample opportunity to try this one out – but not today, it's sunny.
Sports day at school was Saturday, our school isn't particularly competitive in sports so our children aren't usually too bothered about how well they do, but this year they both came home with first place ribbons so they cared a little more ;) We're on the home stretch, children finish school on Friday, then it's 8.5 weeks with few plans and no alarm, just the way we like it.
