"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the workshop I attended today for pre-school mums. I was totally inspired.
You have shown me how to have fun with my toddler and his friends with different approaches and technics. I love that everything you did was with bits I already have in the house - whoever knew a baking sheet could provide so many uses! 
I went straight home and got messy with my son he was engaged and really enjoyed himself. Cant stop singing your praises"  Sophie Morris
