My Creative Space

Once there was a little elephant, Parsley was her name, who had big dreams of what she could be. When she tucked in the trunk night her mind wandered to places far beyond peanuts.

Parlsey 003 Paging Dr Parsley …. she wants to help sick kiddies smile or even lovely ladies like Miss Curly also of the Pops family. (Here doctor’s hat is temporarily MIA)

Parlsey 005 Prima Ballerina Parsley … even though it is have to be a pachyderm on your toes that isn’t going to stand in her way (would you).Parlsey 001Parlsey 002Is it a bird (a really big, big bird), is it a plane – no it’s Super Parsley with her faithful side kick the Pop-inator, keeping all those in Eletown safe from the evil Grownup Grumps.Parlsey 008 Maybe she could be a Princess with horses to ride and jewels to adorn.

Parlsey 015 Or maybe, just maybe she would be lucky enough to one day be …. the love of a little girls life, her best friend and confidant.

Parlsey 019 Just Maybe? Sweet dreams Parsley.

Parlsey 022 Parsley’s bed / wardrobe are from a paper mache beauty box from Spotty. Parlsey 021The bed is just a stuffed fabric envelope with Aunty cookie quilt. The wardrobe is coat hangers cut out of thick cardboard and super glued to the top of the box so the clothes don’t fall out and are all kept together.

More creative bits at Kirst’s. All my creative credit this week goes to the fantastic and inspiring Jodie, the original Parsley creator. Sorry I cheated this week with an already finished creative space, too tired for any new exciting plans yet.

Hey Mrs B&P. It's 10.30pm. My birthday kid is supposed to be receiving her Parsley tomorrow (no doubt by 5am) and DO YOU THINK I HAVE DONE ANYTHING ABOUT ANY CLOTHING YET?

Nup. Just as predicted. And you've set the standard high as the sky (which is why I will not be showing my kid your blog post!)...
