Little hands making

My crystal cave is closed this week as it's half term and I'm on family duty. But while not working with crystals, creative endeavours are still on the table - today I'm making some soft cover leather bound books with two 11-year olds. If ever kids complain in my earshot that they're bored with nothing to do, my standard solution is always to get my bookbinding tools out!

And it's always so lovely to see the delight on the face of someone who's completed their first book ever. Only we lost track of time and I forgot to make dinner in time... Oops!
