The Weekly Story ~ wk 66

All of February on Colours Dekor is 'Red is for love'.... so do a post on the colour 'red'... or join in with your 'love' posts... Here is my post on 'love craft' *smiles*

The girlies and I did some paper craft this weekend... Once I finished all the clearing and cleaning... we decided to add a few elements of red and love around the house... 

On our dining table... made out of paper... as simple as that... with a candle it in.. Looks lovely!! What do you think?

You must think I teach my girls all sorts of non sense... Well the truth is... I'm not sure how much they learn about the craft... and its really nothing.. But when we sit down to make it together... we talk... about colours, family, love... and all sorts of things under the sun.. we laugh... and we giggle.. Some times we fight... *smiles*.. And it is this... that I truly value..

The girls have grown too fast... from baby talk a few years ago... that I could laugh over.. we now have serious kind of talk... *gosh*...

The added attempt they put in... to arrange stuff... to move things around... makes me feel super nice!! They moved this from the dining area to the foyer, coz they thought it looked better there... What do you think?

I know.. I haven't visited your blogs from last weeks linky... Sorry.. I was super busy with month end, but I had a quick look and I thought these two posts were lovely... *smiles*... 

Informative post on Colours : The Basics at Purvi's Creative Hub...
