how tired I may be, I always appreciate any chance that comes across my way for
some play time !! As a matter of fact, I sometimes try to
transform work into play .
So, some days ago, when some festive baking was scheduled to take place in our home ,
I grabbed the chance to play with my ‘little’ army of gingerbread people
I put eyes and mouths on their ‘suntanned’ faces and red and grey ribbons for scarves.
I arranged and rearranged them on plates , platters , bowls, tables etc. , next to tiny Santas and robins and felt excited like a child with a new toy, just before Christmas.
I devoured some of my little ‘toys’ too and their spicy taste satisfied my palate and made me proud!! Yes, I had such good fun with them that it was really worth the whole effort and time I spent ‘bringing them to life’ !
it was play time again. When the baby fell asleep, I made some fun decorations
for his room. I got the idea from Pinterest .
The idea is that you use plastic animals on canvas to make humoristic and playful decorative items.
You actually cut the plastic toy into two and you stick the front part on canvas, which you then paint in whatever colour suits the room.
The outcome is fantastic!!! It looks as if the animals have torn the canvas in their effort to get out through the wall!! I believe the baby will like them and will let his imagination free to make his own stories about his zebra, elephant and green dinosaur.
Of course, you may already have understood that I had a great fun making them and I am really excited and happy about the way they look and how they fit in with the decoration of the baby’s room. ( The ‘theme’ of the room is :animals of the forest and the jungle , trees and birds. )
I can tell
you that I feel quite exhausted by all the things I do on a daily basis without any breaks but happy too , as I have also managed to make some little happy things for me and my house .
I wish you
all many happy moments during the
festive season and I hope you find the time to ‘play’ and look after
yourselves. You deserve it !!!
