Catch up ~ Fun with Canvas and Swaps

It has been such a busy few weeks seems like everything happened at once. I have not posted in such a long time so you better get a coffee while I try and remember what I have been up to.

We will start with the last week of the school holidays, what fun we had, my husband was away that week for work so I tried to fill in the days with fun activities. My daughter wanted to invite her best friend over for a Princess Tea Party. A royal invitations was sent out and an other Princess arrived from another land (suburb lol).

The 3 Princesses and a handsome Prince Cowboy.

The table was set with china and yummy choc cake covered in Princess sprinkles (pink and pink sugar) we had choc covered teddy biscuits, piklets with princess sprinkles and some with jam and cream (for the Queen) and fruit.

Since it was a warm day the coffee pot had special royal pink drink only for Princesses and Princes to enjoy while the Queen enjoyed a pot of Lady Gray.

It was such a lovely morning I really enjoy setting up the table when little friends come over and the children always enjoy using tea cups and cake forks:)

On the weekend of the last week of the holidays our Church had its annual Ladies Camp and I went along. (first ladies camp ever) I was a bit unsure of how I would go as I have never been away from my Children before. I as on the planning committee which helped the whole separation thing.

During the Camp we had some electives I ran the scrapbooking on canvas with another lady which was fun. The night before the camp I made one as an example. (I had never done scrapbooking on canvas before)

This is the one I did the night before.

I did a larger one for my eldest daughters room of her birthday party.

During the last week of the holidays I let my daughter do a canvas, she had so much fun. The picture she made was of rainbow fairies flying over rainbow mountains. She used coloured sand and 3D pens this is now hanging on her bedroom wall.

I have also entered 2 swaps and am so looking forward to doing them, see my sidebar for links to the swaps you can still sign up but they will be closing soon.

Oh and Kylie from a Bite of Country Cupcakes gave me an award. Thanks Kylie.

Are they your sounding board?
