Willow crafts for Christmas!!

SAM_0810If you are interested in learning how to weave willow or make beautiful Christmas decorations for your home  you can join some of the workshops which Brewery Arts  run from time to time and offering basic techniques in creating willow decorations for your garden or home.

Recently, Norah Kennedy led a Festive Willow evening class at Brewery Arts, Cirencester on 9/12/13 which I attended.

She has demonstrated how to make circular wreaths and also how to make simple stars, angels  and wands.  I am a great admirer of willow in all its many varieties and forms and I really enjoy shaping the willow and getting the feel of it as I created all these  wonderful Christmas decorative items.

So I was able to take them home and adorn them with Christmas lights, holly or other festive decorations.

Half-term holidays….

Half-term holidays is an English thing too….. and sowater-park-4water-park-1water-park-13water-park-15 as parents we have to find ways to entertain our children, keep them busy and devote some of our time to do things together, interact and have some fun.  This term 032033schools were closed for two weeks!  So I was forced to take unpaid leave in order to be  with Alex and cover his needs.  Today we visited the Cotsowld Water Park . We had picnic  and finished off with a long walk around the lake.  It was really well worth the trip –  we had a fantastic time Alex loved climping  and collected autumn leaves. Also in the park is a good children’s play area &  tearooms too.  So I would definitely recommend it http://www.waterpark.org/.
I took lots of  great shots of Alex painting, sticking, playing …….Got home extremely tired but when we finished our adventures I have noticed that he was a very happy little boy. Coming to the end of my week with my boy Alex seems like the longest period of time I’ve been able to spend with him for ages, just hanging out. Its been good, we’ve chatted a lot, had some fun, watch cinema Ice Age 3, water park and picnic, library visit and craft activities and baking etc. but the best was just nattering and doing … he was definetely happy with mum around…

Wow!
