You know that disconcerting feeling when you notice that the house is just too quiet?
My first thoughts were “Where is everyone?” and “I hope they’re ok!” and “Are they up to no good?”
I should have more faith. But of course, instead I did a mad dash around to check in on everyone, and see if they were actually up to no good.
You can imagine my delight when I discovered Miss JJ sprawled out on our kitchen floor…
She was making Hoot and Hootabelle torn paper collages, with patty pan cupcake liners for eyes. Bless!
A quick glance into the kitchen revealed a chair propped up next to the pantry: evidence of how she’d reached the cupcake liners on the top shelf.
A second glance revealed the craft cupboard ajar: where she’d sourced her paper and glue.
So, ever so quietly, I tip-toed back out again….
Here’s her final masterpiece – all ready to ship off to Jimmy Giggle at the ABC!
