I can feel the festivity in the air….and on my face! Thanks Vintage Pie for the cute Rudolf portrait!

Last week marks the end of the school year for my daughter [my first borns first year of school finished *sniff*].

Thanks for being a great teacher, Mrs Lye!

So aside from making thank you gifts for all the teachers and helpers [see my last post], there were Christmas favors to be made for her friends. I decided to create crafty kits and steer clear of candy canes and chocolates- despite how tasty to the tummy they are! Check out my festive bugs below with DIY instructions and also how to making the kit with all materials from around the house. The first days of school holidays are now sorted!

I have also had my busy bee wings on this week with opening up my etsy shop, click the link here. It’s a combination of beautiful pastel necklaces handmade from polymer clay and some of the artwork I have made this year from my art exhibition in Fortitude Valley at Jugglers art space. The art show centered on Personal Space, which I explored the way consumerism had lead us to take away the personal space of our natural world, click here for Artist Statement. So my work is based on cacti and succulents, recyclable material and cute as animal sculptures. I will be posting some picture of my artwork here soon, so stay tuned!

My Busy bee wings also held a workshop for my lovely friend Rachel and her sweet family. Christmas decorations made from air dry clay was where we started, but as the creative brain took over, garlands and earrings appeared before our eyes! Such a lovely time spent with you gals *gaw!*

And earlier in the week, I was in charge of face painting at our church community carols. So many cuties coming to get their faces embellished with Elsa, rainbows and snakes….not to mention Christmas holly and reindeers. My arm was twisted and “forced” to become Rudolf. I forgot how much fun it can be to dress up!
