The past few days I have been relaxing and renewing at my grandmother’s house at a mini-version of our yearly “Gallivanting Gal’s” get-together.
This year there were only 4 of us, and I was the lone rep from my generation. But it was actually nice and low key, and it was nice to be able to visit with my Mom and my Aunt in ways that I don’t normally, when the gathering is a little bigger.
That said, I still missed my sisters dearly and hope that some day we can all Gallivant together again!
We all try to contribute to the festivities so that no one person is left doing all the work and having none of the fun, this year my assignment (shockingly!) was to provide a craft activity, one that was “back-to-school” themed.
I decided it would be a fun & easy (and frugal) craft to do a “clipboard clip art” project, like the one I did a while back (see above.)
here is mine – it was inspired by an old photo I had of 2 little girls have a tea party in a secret garden & by my obsession with village Fetes!
Here are 3 of us Gal’s showing off our finished projects! My Aunt (in the middle) got hers packed away before I could get an individual shot of it, but it was very Auntie Te and very romantic! Just like her love of old movies…
We had a great time together and I am so glad I took the time out to be with my Gal’s.
Time to get back to “real life” now!
