Scrapbook, cookies and tea

It happened already a week ago, but i missed writing about it. Wanted to do it right after it happened and then i got lost in all the "have to's", especially with the Easter holiday being this weekend, it was really much to do. It still is. Maybe i did not manage to organize myself as well as before, but this year i really felt the time was not enough.
Anyway, it's the 1st workshop we organize at the tea shop this year. It was rather almost "accidental", or rather incidental? I don't know, you decide :)). We were there to ask if we could put up a poster about the workshops from the County Library, and then we poked in just to say "hello". It's "incidental", right ;)? Had an idea.
She, the owner of the tea shop that is, had the idea we could organize this workshop and so it happened. There were 7 Magnifics who created Easter cards, easel Easter cards. And 5 of them were...boys, yes! I think it's the 2nd time it happens to have more boys than girls at my workshops and it's always very interesting, because they act totally different. 
In the end, they were all very proud of their cards and their mommies were very amazed the boys managed  so well ;). The boys said they could use a pair of scissors better in kindergarten than now. Because meanwhile, in the last 4 years of school, they did not have any art classes or anything similar, where they could use their practical abilities. And they were a bit frustrated, not so much by the idea, but rather by the fact that now, when they are 10 yo, they have a harder time using a pair of scissors than when they were 6 yo. Very sad indeed. Anyway, i was happy to help them get over this small frustration in order to obtain these lovely cards. And what can be more important for me than seeing them and their parents proud and happy. Nothing, really! 
Here they are bragging a bit, at the very end ;). 

And here's the video of the workshop, with sound ;). Enjoy!

Happy Easter, everyone!
