birthday craft


Mr Yardage is celebrating a birthday, so yesterday, Little Mister and I got busy with some paint ...


... he made an original work of art gift, and I abstract painted on a couple of sheets of cardboard so that I could later chop them up and make some festive bunting ...


Triangles chopped and attached to some embroidery cotton with staples - not ideal, but it worked. It's amazing what you can do with limited supplies! We're ready to celebrate!
