Secret Santa Success!

       

Our team of ‘Creative Art Flexible Learning Assistants’ all went out for a few Merry tipples on our last day of term… We’d agreed to make a small present (how creative!?) as our ‘Secret Santa’ gift for another person we picked out of a hat.

Pretty successful all round – I received a lovely pack of handmade envelopes (all made out of old picture books) from Vicki. A couple of us had hand crafted books, I made a mini Darren doll. There was even a bag made from a blog – very clever.

Here we all are – not the best photos in the world but hey ho….

Happy New Year!
