I've been in need of fresh inspiration for a little while and it's finally come in the form of a meme on Bella Dia's blog. She's creating an 'Encyclopedia of Me', which basically involves revealing a little bit of information about yourself each day, using a letter of the alphabet as a starting point. Read all about it here!
As I've always been one to follow the rules, I'm going to rebel (I am an official 'rockin girl blogger' don't you know?!). Anyway, I'm not great at memes so mine is going to be a crafty alphabet, starting with A for applique. I want to give myself a creative kick up the bum, so I'm trying to make something every day. And as it's the school holidays the girls are playing along. Here are their appliques:
It's the most simple form, using bondaweb, but the results are instantaneous which keeps them motivated and they get to use an iron which holds so much excitement for a 3 and 6 year old, you wouldn't believe! (before I get arrested by health and safety officials, let me just point out they were heavily supervised).
I'm not promising to post every day, this may take me 52, rather than 26 days, and I may not go in alphabetical order, but hopefully I'll see you tomorrow with a B!
