Enjoy the little things in life, because they become the most important things….

My children’s world is about enjoying the small things, as they really do become the most important things when you look back. I was saying this to someone during the week, with reference to holidays. One thing our children still talk about is the time we had to eat the picnic out of the booth of our car, because it was raining. They still laugh about and think it was great fun. Now that’s what makes good memories. They become the great days you remember in years to come.

My son finished early this week from his summer camp, so I got to spend time with him on his own. On two of the days we went out to the Phoenix Park. cloudwatchingjuly15 The first day he decided we should do a bit of cloud watching. Try this with your children, you can come up with some amazing scenes, if the clouds are right. We saw a bear, a unicorn, a warrior and a host of different characters. On the second day we decided we would go for a walk, listening along the way to grasshoppers and then my son took off after a butterfly. It’s something you would never dream of doing, as an adult, but children really do make you revert back to being a child again.

For the next, new embroidered work, I decided I wanted to have fun and use mixed media. I made the little house first. It was in my studio for a while. I just wasn’t sure where I wanted to place it. For me I have to leave some pieces, just sit for a while, move away from them and then come back later. I am really looking forward to developing these further. My daughter decided on the name  ‘Great Days’. Hoping you create great days with you and yours……
