My Creative Space..

Don't the weeks just disappear, I feel like I have just finished writing my creative space for last week! Many exciting creative moments going on in my world and just never enough time to make it all happen at once. This week full of delightful gifts from the library fairies, dreaming up more brooches and of course granny squares!

Four little granny squares, won't quite keep me warm just yet! I'm just loving the colours so much, can't wait to see how it all comes together.

I arrived at work this morning to find a little plastic bag sitting on my desk and when I opened it.. this beautiful treasure was inside. The library fairies had come to visit again.

Nearly 100 years old, this beautiful book is literally had sewn back together, full of beautiful text and illustrations I am just spellbound.

Also from the fairies:

Some beautiful old linen and doilies from an estate sale and gorgeous sheet music. I'm in for a very creative weekend indeed.

Another lovely surprise for the day was that one of my brooches made it to the Etsy front page! This is a first for me so I have had a smile for ear to ear all afternoon. A big thank you and congratulations the very talented Emma Lamb for putting together such a beautiful treasury and for featuring my 'I heart Adventure' brooch.

Head over to Kristy at Kootoyoo to join in the fun and show off your Creative Space.

Tomorrow is May day which is very exciting indeed because it's not your average teaching day. Our school's tradition is to celebrate with a cross country race and a carnival and concert. Bring on the crazy stalls, jumping castles and face painting, all together a very fun day! My students and I are making sundaes and ice cream soda, so I'm off to dust off my yellow tutu and glitter, finish making posters and bunting and get all our supplies together.

Much love and creative moments
