The Film of the Tiny box - by Velvet

Tiny mid-week project by Velvet

little box
Velvet thought up this idea and made it all by herself. She brought it to me completed, explaining it was to keep her next milk tooth safely under her pillow till the fairies collect it.

She cut pieces of 'Binka/Binko' (I think my mum calls it?) hard rigid plastic with square holes in. She cut out little squares (about 2cm x 2cm) and stitched 5 of them together to form an box, then she sewed just on one side of the final piece to make a hinged lid. She popped a tiny piece of wadding to keep the tooth safe, then proudly gave it to me asking 'Can we put it on the Blog?'

I will be unveiling Miracle the Friendly Dragon Saturday 17th July at 10.00, if any of you can make it I'd love to have my fellow bloggers there. Miracle will be watching over the children's area downstairs. If I get the picture I drew back, I'll blog it.

Lots of excited love, Izzy xx

Izzy's Turtle

Isabelle drew this about a month ago. I was really impressed with the shape, she did the basic outline in about 2 minutes and then it just evolved. Sadly William added some of his own style to the picture!

Flying Fairy in My Garden by Velvet


I couldn't wait to make this after I had listened to Pomegranite Sarah explain how she started collage as a little girl, with snippets of wrapping paper and nail varnish. I used wrapping paper, paints and the real gold leaf, given to me by Grandad who has kept it for 40years, it was given to him by a friend he worked with in the printing press where he worked as a proof reader. I wanted it to look like the magic that was coming out of the fairy's wand.  Posted by Picasa

Prized Possessions by Jake

I am running with the idea that art does not have to be paint and paper Sharon. This is the sort of shared moment I love with Jake. He quietly shows me his handful of beautiful marbles I just had to snap a photo and capture the moment I love this image. Call it performance. Posted by Picasa

Jake doing Mathematics!

This was created by Jake after a Numeracy Lesson in which he understood matching colours and counting them! I love this one.
