Happy Easter

I hope you all enjoyed a safe and happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

I spent mine with my family, painting mum and dads dining room.

We spent three days prepping and painting it.

Day 1 – Wash, wash, wash the walls. And fixing up holes.
Day 2 – We painted the ceiling with two coats of paint!
Day 3 – we painted the walls. We left the architrave for mum to finish.

We managed to fit some down time in amongst all the painting! My mum, my sister and myself had a small dyeing session. My mum dyed two shirts for herself, whilst me and Jodie dyed a pair of converse each.

Jodie had this amazing pair with iridescent toe and heel. I thought the pink and purple combination went well with the sparkles!

I still have another pair of shoes to dye, but I’m still trying to decide what colours they should be! I think some colour swatching is in call.

Lets not forget about the epic food that always happens when family gets together! Mum had most of the dinners sorted before we even arrived! Tuna mornay, lasagna and roast pork! Whilst Guy had us sorted for breakfasts!

It’s a bit of a tradition to light our mud oven at Easter and to have wood fired pizza for a lunch! We then cooked a pork roast and potatoes in it!

Another tradition is drinking baileys out of Easter eggs!

Baileys in Easter eggs – it has become a tradition!

Now for a short week of work for the last of school holidays, and back to a normal routine next week!

Have a creative week!
