Pretty funny seeing as I have spent all week telling her there are hundreds of entrants and its just good that she had a go. She was totally shocked to actually win but her comment was " see Mum, I told you I worked hard!"
Her prize was a playdough spaghettio factory thing and has provided much amusement and creative cooking in my household today :)
How I love free stuff.
This afternoon I also tried a craft that I have wanted to do for AGES but never was quite confident enough to do it... Wet Felting.
I'd seen tutorials. Watched Youtube clips. Googled. Researched. Planned. Until finally I just pulled my finger out and did it.
Jumeirah was keen to make a play mat and we had picked some beautiful merino wool a few weeks ago so she was really keen to do this.
Its something I vaguely thought would go wrong, but pushed on. So when I came to washing it out, it kinda fell apart around the edges. not to be put off, I just lay the mass of wet wool and smashed it over again :) It worked (well it worked enough).
With all the "whoopps" that went on with this project, I LOVE the result. The colours are beautiful, the texture is amazing.
