Yesterday I had some things delivered in the post from Amazon and in the packaging there was a long piece of scrunched up brown paper. I usually keep it because I really like the texture of it and I pike to keep things that I can use in my art. I just open it up and then fold it neatly along the dotted lines that make it easy to tear sections off (can’t remember what you call them,- perforated?).
Anyways yesterday my children saw me doing that and asked if they could have the paper. They had an idea to make a book from it and it worked out great. I divided the lot of paper in half and the folded it and stapled it and hey presto! Two scrap books 🙂
Once made my children were very busy filling it with stickers and cutting and sticking things in. Hours of fun from a little bit of brown paper that could have ended up in the recycling bin.
I was busy yesterday working on this as well as some other business. 🙂 What do you think?
The children wanted to make some origami houses after they saw a picture on the cover of a book so yesterday we looked up some videos on YouTube.
I’m a big lentils fan. I saw this recipe and I just had to make it. Here’s the recipe: Methi Masoor Daal
It really went down a treat. 🙂

I have made a just giving page as I have been trying to raise money for Syria. The cause is very dear to my heart, as is every cause that involves people suffering injustices but we have to start somewhere. I have a button to the right that links to my page where you can donate so please do so even of its only £1. Every penny or whatever your currency is that you give is well appreciated.
I am donating all profit of sales of my art and other handmade items such as books for this cause. Check out my Etsy shop
May Allah reward you will good.
