My creative space

 Tomorrow night we are taking part in the Masked Parade as part of the Nelson Arts Festival.
We are joining Alfie's Montessori preschool and are dressing as butterflies.  I have sent a lot of time over the past five weeks helping them out, sewing, painting, dyining and cutting out.  This afternoon Alfie and I finished of our wings and masks ready for tomorrow.

The wings were already painted

so we just added glitter so they sparkle in the sun tomorrow afternoon

and then painted and decorated our masks

here is mine

and here is Alfie's.

The next ten days are going to be very very busy for me, there will be no crafting being done and more than likely very little blogging.  I am going to be working every night (apart from tomorrow) in the Granary Cafe which is one of the venues for the performances.  Its quite exciting but will involve many late nights which is always a terrifying prospect when you know you still need to get up bright and early with the children.  I'll let you know how it goes and hopefully be back with some photos of the masked parade.
