The Story Box

Friday, January 24th, 2014

A lovely exercise to get the creative juices flowing is to get a money box and turn it into a story box. Set it up on a shelf or table with strips of paper and pens, then when ever someone visits your house get them to write a sentence down and to post it into […]

China in Her Face
