I find crafty inspirations everywhere, and Steiner school fetes offer a wonderous selection of ideas and goodies to take home.
I love this Candle holder.
Seven friends holding hands around the candle, a vision of a brightly coloured rainbow.
What a great seed of an idea for Advent….
I can’t resist a magic wand, in this case a flower one.
Perfect for last week’s butterfly game!
On Saturday, at our Regional Meeting (I’ll post more soon!), Sandra spoke of a Jewish fairy tale she loves called “Something from Nothing”. It is a philosophy that I love, and that speaks to me of the essence of an imaginative childhood.
Here is one of those magical “something from nothing’s”- a gnome for Ned from a short piece of knitting, a gumnut seedpod and a fluff of wool, all tied together with a fingerknitted thread.
There were my favourite matchbox gnomes, such great stocking fillers if you are beginning to think about Christmas ideas
(I know!!! It is just around the corner AGAIN!)
And pocket gnomes
and teeny wooden cars and vans.
I am always on the lookout for tiny timber simple cars and trucks that fit into the palm of a child’s hands.
Ned quickly sequestered the Concrete truck and the Tow truck ones away before I could take a pic.
A mouse bookmark. Cute as pie!
and more silk threads….
bought from the Samford Valley Treehouse shop to add to my overflowing stash.
Craft is really my money-draining addiction!
Is it yours too?
