small things



Its half term, this is the closest we are going to get to any craft!!

I love covering things in fabric (I blame Cath Kidston!), I had a new box of matches for my kitchen and so I used a little bit of one of the fat quarters I bought from the quilt show last week and here we are, small things that cheer us in our day-to-day lives, so much nicer now than before.

I did have to cut off the bit you 'strike', fix the box with a bit of cardstock, then stick it back on after the fabric, but this is easy peasy stuff.

Talking of easy-peasy, or not, I am debating whether to take the kids to the cinema this week to see Curious George. I would really like to go, but with 3 under-fives??? I'm not so sure. Found this site with fun things to do with Curious George. I think I will see what the weather is like before I decide, it has been nice today so we have just played around in the garden.

Lovely! It's so much fun to beautify the little things around us - bet you smile each time you use a match.

I'm also umm-ing about Curious George. I've got a 5 yo and a 2 yo, and I've never taken them to the cinema as elder son has awful ants in his pants. Perhaps I could subdue them with popcorn.

What a great idea. This is one crafty idea that even I could manage - thanks :)
