Stain monsters & Penny Scallan giveaway!!!!!!!!

This is a story, a story of a mum who does a LOT of washing, scrubbing and cleaning (sound familiar?). This mum has two creative children, who love to paint and make things. The mum isn't a fan of stains on clothes, but she knows that with two creative children, there is no escaping the stains, or is there? 

Read on and discover how this mum has tamed the "stain monsters" that taunt her - OK I've just given away the ending, damn. But do read on, there is a fabulous giveaway at the end - have I just given away the surprise ending too? Oh dear never mind. The story begins .......

There were many stain monsters that lived in this house, most ended up tucked away in drawers. They were very mean to the kind mum who lived there, they taunted her and laughed as she tried to scrub them away with all manner of cleaning products. "Scrub, scrub, that's all I do" Said the mum. The mean stain monsters even said mean things about her home made washing powder which were really hurtful!

Meanwhile, the door bell rang. It was a parcel that contained the heroes of this story. Two Penny Scallan art smocks. Apples for the girl and cars and trucks for the boy. Long sleeves and a front that would only require wiping! The mum did a little dance of joy "wipe only!" she cried.

The creative children got to work, creating masterpieces all the while the heroes (Art smocks) keeping those stain monsters away. 

It suddenly dawned on the daughter that the stain monsters would never been seen in the house again. "But mum what about the stain monsters?" She said in a worried voice. The mum just smiled. "We won't be seeing them here again" She said.

Once the masterpieces were completed and the children had grown wary and tired of creating. Mum said "Tidy up time" . "Scrub, scrub?" Asked the two children. "No wipe, wipe, wipe" The mum said, with a smile she could not remove from her face.

The heroes knew that they had done a great job, they also knew that they would come in handy next baking time too, much better than the cloth aprons that mum had. "Wipe, wipe, wipe" Mum thought to herself. "Yes wipe, wipe, wipe".

  11. Oops sorry about that. It's the middle of the night but I couldn't sleep. Writing blog comments on a phone at 4 am is not very sensible. Despite that I would LOVE to enter your competition to win an art smock. I love the navy stars, size small please. X
