Frankfurt and the Christmas Market

In the beginning of December ‘im outdoors, one of my girl friends and I went to visit another girl friend who had moved to Frankfurt in Germany over a year ago with work.  While we were out there we also made time to visit the Christmas Market, Zoo and Botanical Gardens.  You can read all about it on my ‘Not all who wander are lost’ blog.

Happy Christmas from Fred

You might recognise Fred here from the beginning of the Lola course where we created person shapes.  Once we'd named him we didn't want to pull him up and as Christmas approached he wanted to join in.  In the end we sent this image out as our Christmas card to all our friends and family.
Happy Christmas everyone.

December's Writers Group

After some beautiful if sad pieces today, following my 11th November homework from last month, I thought we better have a more upbeat homework this month and set this: Off in the distance, I heard the sound of sleigh bells… Write a short story or poem. Or try and answer this question – Does falling snow have a sound?

Toxic Paper Factory

Lola seems to have given me back my creativity.  I'm full of projects now, although I still don't have the time to do them.  While looking round the internet for something completely different I stumbled across the Toxic Paper Factory.  This amazing site is full of paper models which you can download, print out and bring to life. If you have never made anything out of paper before you might find them a little hard as they don't really come with instructions, but if you know how to fold, cut and glue paper you won't have any trouble with these models.  The cats above are just the first of many.  What I love about the cats is they took me about half an hour to put together so I had a finished product very quickly.  I can't wait to make more.
