Summer Camp 2019- The Final Week! Sob.

I’m typing this while sitting on my sofa with a cup of tea, wearing pyjamas and nursing some very sore muscles. At the beginning of every Summer I get overly excited about teaching at camp. By the end of camp I’m crawling around like a broken lizard and falling asleep at eight in the evening. …

It’s that time again. The time of year when I start checking my weather app neurotically, line boxes of products up in the family room for everybody to trip over, and prepare my children mentally for the upcoming chaos. Yes, the Spring markets are here!!! Now, I don’t actually do many markets. I know crafters …

The time has come to start thinking about the 2016 Summer camps. At this early stage, that mostly means enrollment, booking a classroom, sorting out dates, and sending out emails, and this will all need to happen over the next two weeks. I’m finding it difficult to focus. Being me, I can’t really separate all that nitty-gritty administrative …

What I learned at Summer Camp – Part 2

Last week was my favorite week of Summer Camp so far. This is because the theme was Bauhaus.  I am obsessively in love with the Bauhaus art movement; it’s influences can be seen everywhere today, from IKEA furniture to the abc tv logo, and even Apple computers. Bauhaus stripped art down to it’s basic principles and focused on …

What I Learned At Summer Camp – Part 1

Week 1 and 2 of my little art camp have flown by, and I’ve been meaning to blog about the experience, but to be honest, it has just been one task too much for me. My days have started at 6.00am and involved getting myself ready, getting my kids ready, getting four sets of lunches and …

The Luxury of a Full Work Week

The  last two weeks have been pretty productive, thanks in part to the lovely Spring-like weather. With no sudden, unexpected snow days, I managed to finish screen-printing all 1 million of my products (Well, it certainly felt like 1 million!). I have also almost finished ironing them all as well. My right bicep is now impressively larger than the …
