It’s August Holiday weekend, just about 24 hours into my holiday.
From finishing work on Friday through to Tuesday morning, I am off duty from day-to-day doings and beings.
I’m staying home, and I’m having some quality time with someone very dear to my heart: my Inner Kid.
We are both very excited about this.
Beginning last night, we sat down and surveyed the chaos. What to do first? Barely time to catch my thoughts and IK yells “Paper! Paper! Tearing and folding, snipping, concertina-ing, gluing, stitching, snippetty snippetty….” and then we suddenly had a little heap of these
We stay up late, we listen to the radio…
and the papery things get more intricate and fiddly
We stay up later still, eating biscuits and reading. Listen to the ideas bubble away in the background. We sleep and dream.
In the morning we go back to play. IK: Let’s make holes! Find the stabby-awl-thing and make holes to stitch the things with!! Now!
Yes! Like this! no idea why or what for but gotta make this new thing bigger and more thing-ful!!
And more directions! It needs to go in more directions!!
Yay! Now it needs a button!
………………….to be continued………………… 😉

I can feel the happy excitement. Can’t wait to see where this goes. I think I may need to look for a hole-pokey thing too…seems like good fun (as long as it doesn’t lead to bloodshed if carried away).
it’s the best therapy ever! Just remember – stab away from face, hands and other fleshy human parts and all’s good (also have good thick stab-proof underneath to what you’re attacking – I used back cover of sketch book on old carpet) Enjoy!! 😉
smiling, smiling, smiling here – this is wonder-full 😀
Oh boy.. love this so far.. the colors you use are always bold.. love.
thank you so Judy! We’re having a ball!! 😀
Are you now entering a jewellery phase – a Gecko necklace perhaps?
