coloured rice!

Like lots of kids, my boys love craft. Luckily, so do I!! I was searching the net for some ideas on a few crafty things to do with the boys when I stumbled across coloured rice. What a great, fun, easy idea. And a hit!

Starting with some plain, white rice in a zip lock bag (white holds the colour better)

Food colouring

A few drops into the rice and SHAKE!

Different colours

I poured them into a baking dish on newspaper and put them outside to dry in the sun for around an hour

The boys decided to mix the colours together :)

Hours of fun! They loved it!

Yesterday, I had my first stall at Mathilda's Market. I've been a shopper at Mathilda's many times and it's always such a beautiful market.

It didn't disappoint! The stallholders do such a great job with their stalls. Just beautiful! I didn't want mine to be the ugly duckling, so I put quite a bit of thought into my stall. I hope I did ok!

I had a great day!

Mathilda's market tomorrow!

My car is packed. I have been sewing like a crazy lady (crazier than a cat lady perhaps??) and I think I'm finally ready for my first Mathilda's market tomorrow.

I'm excited! I'm really looking forward to it. I've been a shopper at previous Mathilda's markets and have always found some lovely new sellers.

I'm off to bed now to get my rest before a hopefully very busy morning :)
