I don’t know why, but apparently I work much better with a deadline. 5 years ago, just after my daughter was born I made both the children Easter baskets/crates. All decorated with soft toys, ribbons, cheap ghastly yellow chickens and handmade felt carrots.
And they have been getting increasingly tattier. Last year I intended to re-do them but never got there, and felt terribly guilty about it on Easter as I saw them sitting there.
A few weeks ago I decided to do them for this year, and didn’t actually get them down until yesterday. They were needed that night, so the deadline was looming, but they got done. I even let children help (in controlled areas!).
The boxes are adorned with their names in their favourite colours, and Sebastian pronounced me the best artist parent he knows…:)
AND I want to see how the WordPress app displays when I write a post on my phone!
