On a few lighter notes

I started back at the youth group this afternoon and today they made Masquerade masks. They seemed to have really enjoyed it and their masks looked really fantastic.

They are kids with very low attention spans and have usually had enough of one thing after about an hour. Today they happily worked for an hour and a half! I wasn't able to buy sticks at the craft shop this week but I've said I'll get them some for next week so I'll post some photos next week when they are finished.

I also bought some beads and shoestring so the boys could make a necklace (in case they didn't enjoy the mask making) but they all enjoyed the masks and all loved my choice of beads so everyone wanted to make a necklace too. LOL!

The best thing today was that I actually got them all to do some tidying up! Usually they all disappear and leave it to the same few to do it.

A few days ago I joined get_a_journal The idea being that people contribute 4 A5 pages towards a real life journal. I don't know whether it'll work or not but I've offered to send something and I'm looking forward to it. The journal I'm writing for has the theme 'Dreams' the woman who it's for has said that she dreams of travelling as she is unable to and would like people to write about where they would love to visit or about their fav places. I just hope I can pick up enough about her in the next few weeks so I can send her something that she will enjoy.
