A very nice parcel arrived in the mail yesterday...one which excited the kids (and me!) no end. After finding something called scoubidous mentioned in Nadine's tutorial for a gorgeous little table, I wondered on my blog what a scoubidou was, and Lara offered to send me some!! They arrived yesterday - and Lara even took the trouble to translate the toy instructions into English for the children so that they could play with them too, along with an example of a little key ring made by one of her children! Thank you so much, Lara - the children had an absolutely wonderful time with the scoubidous....I had to be very quick to take the photo as they were keen to open them straight away. Now I have some to play with too, so soon I may be able to show you whether I have been able to make some little tables with them!
This is the kind of thing that makes hanging out in "blogland" so nice....thank you all for your comments, support, motivation and inspiration!!!
