My rainbow loom

July 9, 2016

I went to a crafty birthday party today and it was super cool. Not only did a paint a ceramic peacock which they glazed for me, but the party favor was a rainbow loom! I’ve always wanted one of these. Mum and I spent hours hooking bands together this afternoon.

 

Day 3 of no school

April 20, 2016

Rafa was able to get back to the office today but my school remains closed. The ‘honey’ and ‘money’ businesses must go on so I tagged along with the honey side of things to Mum’s meeting today. She let me loose with the camera in the cafe whilst she was working with her web site guy. I had so much fun!

In fact Mum loves my graffiti so much we get to keep the box another week.

The better the graffiti, the longer we get to keep the box.  This box won’t make it out to recycling for a while.
