A quick update

Hi Everyone,

I had a great time teaching at the weekend workshop but came home feeling pretty tired, with a mountain of washing to do and lots of pretty papers, stencils, inks etc to put away.  I am getting on top of the house stuff now and looking forward to getting back into creating something new, but for today I wanted to share an idea that I really like that comes from one of my favourite photography blogs.  I have mentioned Karen Russell before and how much I learnt when I took her online course “The Photographer’s Workshop” but she also has a blog where she shares regular life stuff and her photographs.

She gives her children a couple of ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ cards each Christmas and I love this idea.  I have to confess I haven’t used them yet as I think they will work better for kids a bit older than mine.  I am definitely planning to use them when my kids are teenagers (which is a while away yet) and hope that if they have a get out of jail free card they will be honest with me if they have done something perhaps they shouldn’t have 🙂  Here’s hoping anyhow.  If you are interested in the idea, she has made some templates that you can download here.

I will be back on Friday with a new project to share.  Thanks for stopping by!
