Recently, both Chris and I have been involved with creative things. For Chris' birthday, I made him the card above. I do like stamping and die cutting (and knowing it's the only one in the world like that!)
Chris was a workshop leader for the Drama students at the University where we work recently, where he presented a whirlwind guide to puppets. He had asked if I could make him some 'bunraku' style puppets for the students to use. These are puppets which are manipulated by a group or team of puppeteers and each movement has to be carefully considered. I managed to make enough for the group to use and Chris said they had really enjoyed using them and were surprised at how difficult it was.
Chris excelled himself with this apple and quince pie which we took to Mum's when we went for Sunday lunch. It was delicious and the quince, while not necessarily identifiable itself, really enhanced the apple flavour. Yum!
I made myself a bookmark, using stamps and stencils. It needs a nice blue ribbon to finish it off though...
Here's someone who has not been creative at all, but he contributes a lot to our household in his own way. He does choose the most uncomfortable places to sleep though!
