A happy new year to one and all. Sounds scary saying a new year as I can't quite believe another year has gone by so quickly. I haven't made any resolutions, apart from one, which is to update the blog on a more regular basis! Last Autumn we worked with a local charity called Out of Sight. It's based in North Tyneside and is set up by parents whose children have a visual impairment. The spirit of the parents and children was remarkable and so inspiring. The crafts incorporated lots of different textures and materials, along with some messier painting activities, so the children could participate and use all of their senses.

Already for 2011 we have lots of exciting projects lined up, one is the Saltwell Park show in April. It was such a busy weekend there last year with lots of events available for the whole family. The theme of the crafts isn't confirmed yet, but I will keep you posted once they are.

Once again a big thank you to all the businesses and people I worked with last year and am looking forward to seeing you in 2011.
