Things on Sticks..

....Flowers to be exact..the stamp is from Woodware.It's stamped onto patterned paper..no need to colour!


The leaf is from an old Hero Arts set.


 They're cut out and then stuck onto sticks.. the kind you stir your coffee with!

EfemeraInk.

... This month at EfemeraInk we made dream catchers...with embriodery hoops and vintage doilies..


The center is coloured with a copic pen.


The feathers are cut with a Tim Holtz die and then embossed.


Lots of random beads.
A bit of gold embroidery thread is woven through the doily


The center is a ready made rose from Cosmo Cricket...it's old!
I knew it would be used for something someday!

Sometimes...

.....You just want to sit mindlessly and glue and stick!..especially when you've had a bee sting on your hand and that hand is the size of a grapefruit!


So I've dug out the scrap box and a Sizzix owl die.


With little idea what I'll eventually do with them.

So Much....

For blogging more regularly!....I've just run out of steam. The decorating in the lounge is done, I've
 re-up-holstered a chair and reorganised the craft room.



The drawers are now full of stuff...


My new Jonny Hannah print is framed and hanging.


This is the view from my craft table.


and a few collectables, bits of driftwood, plastic knitting needles and a bowl of wooden cotton reels.

A Lot's Been

...going on, I've been decorating again, the lounge this time..but...
I bought myself this!


 Getting it home was a bit traumatic and getting it up the stairs to the craft room was a challenge! At one point I didn't think it would fit.
We took off the glass top as it was smashed and also took out the glass front..that reduced the weight so now I don't think the ceiling will give way! It took forever to clean and get all the old sticky stuff off but it's done now.  what you can see is the service side but that's the way it is in the room....all those lovely drawers to fill.... and yes they are now full...full of stuff that I'm sure I'll never use if I live to be a hundred. A serious declutter is needed, I'm slowly going through the house as I decorate and getting rid of stuff. I love a good sort out!.

A Block Of..

.....Wood a bit of wire and a peg!


and some images from this little book..


                                            

Cover your block with the images...twist the wire around the spring of the peg


Cover the peg with paper


Poke a hole in the block and push in the wire


Great for holding photos or memoroabilia or photos.
