Of course Celestine wanted to bake too so I set her up a little table with her own gingerbread cutters but she spent most of her time covered in flour and trying to climb into the sugar bag instead.
The miniature cutters by the way I discovered online here thanks to Polly.
It was lots of fun and now we have lots of gingerbread to eat!
This week has been quite a busy one. It has been full of drawing, cutting out, getting my portfolio together, meetings in London, walking the dog, swimming, getting the piano tuned for my parents, making mushroom and cheese tarts, getting picture books out from the library, buying secret santa presents, going to the art nest for a drawing session and tea and cake, watching The Shining and The Others, browsing the children's section in Foyles, spending a great deal of time in Forbidden Planet (I love that shop!) walking round Fortnum and Mason and marvelling at all the beautiful glittery things, making Celestine a new stripy red and black dress (she looks very french!) and probably some more things which I can't remember...
I hope you've had a good week too! Did you do anything exciting?
