What the Children Did Recently

Kristine just love macarons and will go to the extent to bake some all by herself some on a late afternoon. We love the shells without filling!
This is the product of one of Kristine's school project.
Her painted canvas with acrylic.

And what the girls did for me for Mother's Day.

May ATC Session @Bishan Library

It's our monthly ATC session again.  Instead of crafts, we tried lettering or rather fake calligraphy.  Hope we'll see more writings on our ATCs.  I personally think adding words to the works make a card more meaningful.
I did 3 cards with daily junk mails.

Wrote this Lucky word during the ATC session.  And I swapped for Selina Yeoh's Splice It Up ATC.  Looked like the girls are hooked on this style of collage, and they are certainly getting quite good at it!

The theme for June swap is Travel.

Mini Books and Tatted Bookmarks for Exchanges

I did a paper bag mini album swap in March with Shallale Figaro.  The mail took a whole month to arrive from Mexico
Shallale used very small brown paper bags of about 2" × 2.5" and bound them together with a ring from a keychain and another metal ring.
I did mine with envelopes instead - folded in half and altered the opening. About 4.5" × 4.5".

Tatted Sem's name on paperclips for his last day  of work in the office in Feb.
Designed another tatted name, this time on a bookmark.  In fact, both bookmarks are newly designed and tatted for Diane Merlock (USA) for the NeedlesnCrafts 2016 Bookmark Exchange.

Di Magical Bloom and Heart You.
