The girls have been busy doing craft for charity. One project they’re working on is turning recycled materials into jewellery. They are the backend hands for their grandma’s elderly church group which will be selling the jewellery to raise funds.

And here’s the product of our afternoon of hard work cutting, pasting, and arranging! I’ll have to admit that the toughest part was to put the designs together. There were so many scraps and things that we couldn’t quite decide what went with which. Perhaps one day in the distant future when I have tons of free time, I’ll attend some scrapbooking classes. I have to say that we did have lots of fun though!

Sane tip: It is quite therapeutic to spend a lovely afternoon with the girls working quietly on scrapbooking material. It is all so pretty! It is a nice way to bond with the older girls as they have stopped acceding to my requests to spend time doing “silly kids craft”. I’m not much of an artistic person, so it was very satisfying to see the scraps coming together nicely.
Save tip: I used to tell the girls that “the more you give, the more you will receive”. (Will share a hilarious story about this sometime soon). So do email me if you would like to place your orders for any of the designs which catches your fancy. They are going at $5 for 2. We are definitely not professional scrapbookers, but a lot of our love and our best efforts went into these little tags, so do give us your support!
