My Creative Space

The end of school year has crept up extra quickly. I'd expected an extra week but was told that today is the last day my preschooler is in his classroom, and then next week is the rehearsal for their show and then show night.

So in saying this, it was a mad rush last night to make something for Mrs Tarleton, my DS's main preschool teacher.

She scores a mug rug (my first one).


Geez these things are gorgeous and so quick to make.




and mugs filled with "Favourites" (chocolates) for the assistants.



Now time to battle the crowds and head to the shopping centre for some retail therapy (a nice name for crazed Christmas shopping).
