all the seats filled with keen, crafty kids!

The sunday before last was the final Eveleigh artisan's market before christmas and as I stated in previous blogs, christmas workshops were arranged for kids and "big kids" to get involved in crafting and creating christmas goodies!
I ran the christmas card making workshop, making the twospoonfulsofsugar kangaroos and koalas and we dressed them up in santa hats and antlers.
I got to the workshop area, and found all the seats filled with keen, crafty kids..., so we got straight in there, cutting, gluing, folding, smiling, getting was so much fun!

All the kids walked away with big happy smiles and their nicely finished "handmade by them" card for their special loved one! Yey! (And yes I am wearing the famous "pig pants")
I got them to sign one of the giant Twospoonfulsofsugar cards and heres what a couple of them said!

I had just as much fun as they did :o)
PS: Twospoonfulsofsugar Make-Me children's craft kits are a fun activity for the school holidays, your child can make a card to give away, or turn it into a story book, write a story about there animal & keep it on there bookshelf! Make-me kits are available in many different animal characters i.e, cow, duck, frog, koala, pig, dog, horse....and more..all are available to be purchased online @ our fully secure online shopping store using Paypal's facilities.

I don't have a child myself, but g-wiss if i had one, they would be defiantly getting one of these for christmas for sure, Theres even the little place at the front to keep all your collected treasures you find while your exploring! So, so cute.

two spoonfuls of sugar "christmas" goodie bags

Last weekend we happliy donated a few Twospoonfulsofsugar goodie bags to the Sydney JETAA association christmas end of year function and the Australian Business Women's network (ABN red affair event)!

Sydney JETAA plays a major role in a wide range of Japan-related activities. Working with the Consulate-General of Japan and the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR), we promote and foster cultural exchange between Australia and Japan, conduct orientation sessions for new JET Programme participants prior to their departure for Japan, and provide support to recently returned JETs.

"The night was a great success. It was held at 3 weeds in Rozelle. The Twospoonfulsofsugar goodie bags were really well received and some people even told me they recognised your cards from some stationary places, so your publicity is definitely increasing." Thank you! Tammie, JETTAA

The Australian Businesswomen's Network (ABN) teaches women skills to start, manage and grow their business. ABN inspires women in the workplace to enhance their career paths. The ABN connects women with peers and role models so that they can be inspired by each other.

Congratulations to Yvette Vignando of HappyChild, who won the goodie bag at the ABN red affair event!

so much choice this weekend!

This weekend there is so much (creative, crafting, inspirational) things going on in Sydney well Eveleigh, with Finders Keepers markets on Friday and Saturday at CarriageWorks. Then on Sunday opposite CarriageWorks the monthly Eveleigh Artisans' Market which is the last market before christmas, they have decided to "christmas" it up and celebrate an australian made christmas with christmas crafting workshops, santa... etc "Eveleigh Market is championing little and big Ozzies to get out and discover their inner creative talent, and the talent in their neighbourhood for gift giving this Christmas, making it an Australian Made Christmas."

We are very spoilt for choice!

So "MY" plan is to head to Finders Keepers on Friday night with a few buddies.... and on Sunday share some smiles as Twospoonfulsofsugar will have a stall at the Eveleigh Artisans' Market.
At 11am joining in the fun of an australian made christmas, I (sheryl) will be running a "special" australian animal christmas card making workshop. It's going to be so much fun, if I do say so myself! So keep an eye out for me, as I will be dressed in pig pants and a Santa Hat! Heehee! Its gonna be fun, fun, fun!
