This week I was offered the opportunity to run a card-making workshop for a few hours at a local environmental awareness event. Although I was super-excited, I decided to turn the organisers down because although I could have taken the kids with me (and there were lots of cool activities), I didn't think I could do a workshop and watch the kids. So I loved the idea and was grateful to be asked, but had to decline. I asked them to think of me in future because if my mother-in-law visits soon, I would take the whole lot of them along. (I thought it would be fun to draw up a plan of how I would run such a workshop anyway, just in case).
In the meantime, I have been enjoying creating cards again and have been asked for lots of them by colleagues. I started off with the new baby cards, because seriously, there are babies and pregnant women everywhere around me mash'Allah:
