1. i was commissioned to make this rat by JR's dad. it is attached to a tape measure (the automatic retractable type) with a length of fishing nylon. looks kinda realistic huh? he intends to give to his granddaughter so she can scare JR's mum with it!! classic, he's a total crack up.
(and yes - shame - there is a used nappy loitering on my floor)
2. mmkay, so there i was all set to do something fabulous to celebrate 100 followers, and it's back to 99. *twiddles fingers* it's gone like this: 98-99-98-99-100-99...teasers!
3. i'm a woose when the kids are sick. neurons in my brain stop firing and i can't concentrate on anything. it doesn't get better with a)no. of kids or b)length of time being a parent.
4. in other big news, i am officially hosting a doll-making workshop next month for a handful of my mum's crafty peeps. totally freaking out (but faking professionalism of course). i would LOVE any tips from anyone who has run, or attended, a workshop. what are the rules? do's/don'ts? pros/cons?
