Its funny how you associate different sounds or smells with different seasons of the year, cinnamon and allspice and pine with christmas and in my case church bells with summer and sometimes spring. our village is quite big really and I have to admit I only know the names of the families my son went to primary school with and those in the local post office and shop. Hubby knows more as he lived in the next village on when growing up, and many of his friends now live in our village.
Sorry I do waffle on, my brain seems to be addled I have managed to drop a dish and a mug this morning and smashed both. I blame all the revision I am doing to help my son, sorry help my son with his revision, he seems to learn better and take in more when I give him anicdotal triggers. Today we did biology, part of which was micro-organisms which decay things and the temperatures at which they are active. If he redraws the triggers I drew he will have the examiner in laughter or tears, I said to remember that they are aerobic imagine them in skimpy leotards dancing around getting breatheless. When its cold they are asleep or dorment , as it heats up they get frisky anfd reproduce , then get really hot and by 100 degrees they fry and die.
What kind of teacher would I make, but it made my son laugh and he seemed to retain the important bits.
Stop waffling Julye I hear you shout, get on with the craft!
I used one of my fab lili of the valley stamps, I think it is just so cute. I have tried to combine as many challenges as possible so please forgive me, but school work comes first and as I keep telling Andrew it's only 7 or 8 weeks of hard work for what could be his best shot at getting his foot on the first rung of the ladder of life he wants to climb, and I will help him by giving him the encouragement and support he needs to study and be as prepared as he can. If he does that and does his best I can ask no more, so that cuts into craft time so please forgive me combining.
I coloured my image with promarkers and sakura glaze and glitter pens. The faux buttons are again sakura glaze , I think they are pollycraft but can't find them in my digifiles so can't be 100% sure-if I'm wrong please accept my appology and correct me so I can edit and give the appropriate person credit.
