Like a Walk in the Park

Yesterday, I gathered a few super-duper crafty Mums and kids.
We rugged up against the chilly Melbourne winter and headed for the park....

Kids were asked to discard the winter-woollies, wear summer clothes and think "warm" for the duration of a photo shoot.

There was much star-jumping and wriggling (thanks to Coach Tania)...

...followed by copious amounts of marshmallowy sugar and artificial colouring (previously known as "the props").

The shoot for the book is all but done (...and I fail "Responsible Parenting 1"). Thanks team!

The Review Round-Up Competition is all but done, too. You have until the end of today to submit your entry if you want to be in with a chance to win a $100 voucher, a $50 or some free patterns.

Over the weekend, I'm going to work out how to use some Blogger widgetry to install a voting gizmo on the sidebar of this blog. What I'd like to ask you to do** is to visit at least a few of the reviews listed at the bottom of this post and vote on your favourite.

**I know it's a "big ask" - as they say on the Footy Show - but think yourselves lucky that I'm not asking you to freeze yourself (or your children) for the sake of a photo.

The windchill factor at that place is something else!

It looks like it was fun.

I know a kid who would have slept in her new get up if I'd let her and another who wants to know when we can go back to "Nikki's house"!

My first thought was "no pain, no gain" but children that age don't seem to feel the cold - especially if it's one of Tania's!!

I am really really looking forward to this book by the way!!

You just couldn't pull that off in Canada - pretending it's summer in winter wouldn't be a great idea!

If the shoot is wrapped up, do you have a release date for the book yet? We're all waiting!
