As we feel the last of summer fading away with windy weather and a few sandstorms we want to look back over an action-packed two months. There was not a single day when the workshop area was quiet with the summer sessions going on. We had a really great run and met quite a number of talented young crafters. Here’s the last of the summer’s kids and what they did this summer.
Some of the girls were with us for more than two weeks and some were there for just a day. There wasn’t a single one of them we didn’t have fun with.
Ooh la la! Here’s Sophie, our Summer’s Super Crafter who was with us for a whole month of crafting, four days a week! Here she is working on her decoupage box.
The girls just love their Chalkboard Door Plaques! They did amazing work on them.
Sophie (left) smiles sweetly as she shows everyone her finished box. Mariam (right) just loved her Gelli Art Canvas.
Hala (right), a young visitor from Saudi Arabia, came with her aunt for a day of crafting. She felt very proud of her work when she finished her Gelli Art Canvas. Nairne (left) looks serene as she hold up her canvas. Crafting mastery reached? Could very well be. 😉
Nadine (left), and Shamza (right) hold up their funky Gelli Art Gift bags. Shamza came all the way from Sharjah, tagging along with her older sister to take a session of Gelli Arts Printing.
Karina learned scrapbooking over the summer and loved it so much that she was sad to have her last day. We miss her now that she’s back in the UK for school.
Miryam and Sarah did another sisters’ session with us and made their own Decoupage Monogram wall art. Messy, colorful, and fun!
The school year has kicked in and we are still not used to the reduced noisy craftiness in the shop. Just the noise though; the craftiness is still very much here and some of the girls will be back for After-School Creative-ities. If you’re interested, you might want to visit the shop and see what we have to offer for after-school activities.
It was an awesome summer and we hope to see these little crafters again and get to know other new young crafters in the camps to come.
Keep on creating!
