Crikey....a blog post LOL

After a few months of of stress with re-locating and getting organised I have finally managed to sit down and create something.  

I wanted to do put up some wall art in my new craft room and when I had a good sort out I came across lots of the Gothic Arch layered frames lying around.  I think I had taken them to demo at some point and these were the ones that weren't used.

Anyway, I set about decorating some of them to hang on the wall.  I have used Paperartsy paints and some of Jofy's stamps that are just gorgeous.

I created my own backgrounds with paint and stamps and just had a thoroughly good time :)

4 Horse Carousel

I spent a Sunday afternoon designing this and all day today decorating it LOL, I'm really pleased with it.  It's given me lots of ideas for more 3D stuff.....but we'll see.

May Class at The Craft Barn

Here is a piccie of the project I will be doing for the May Class at the Craft Barn. I'm using the plaque and lettering from our Home Sweet Home plaque and our Village Scenelit.

It will make a lovely key holder....or anything else you wish to hang from it of course LOL.

If you want to book a place pop along to the class list HERE. I'll look forward to seeing you.

Christmas is finally here...........

Well it's been a busy year to say the least and I have finally got a little bit of time off to recharge the batteries.

I've had some ups and downs over the year, made some new friends and realised others are not quite as nice as they try to appear but in the whole scheme of things, I have nothing to complain about.

I make a New Year resolution every year to update my blog more regularly and every year I fail....but....I will be doing more crafting in 2012 so with that will be more blog posts.....maybe I might just manage to keep the blogging more frequent next year.

I used to love wrapping presents and would spend hours doing it but, as time is off the essence these days, I no longer manage to spend the time I did.  I made an exception for mum though and I'm looking forward to spending some time with her on Boxing Day.....here is her basket of presents that I'm taking up there, all wrapped in Vintage style.....just like mum hee hee!


Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and I wish you all the best for 2012 xxxx

Tando Creative Challenges...week 2

This month the theme is Winter Festivals.

I used the reverse side of a canvas and covered the inner areas with Modroc, the bottom part has been been packed up to give a different shape and texture.

Embossing enamel....lots of.... has been used and then I finished off with some Mini Houses and the reindeer and sleigh.


There's a prize up for grabs every month and you don't even have to use Tando chippie.....if you do though, you get double to chance to win :o)

Hearts of Plaid at Bubbly Scrumptious

Over at Bubbly Scrumptious the October challenge is Hearts of Plaid.   There is a fab inspirational board so I thought I would give it a go....I so rarely enter into challenges but I had a day to myself today..no work for a change ha ha!!


Anyhoo, my Home hanging is, of course, made up of mostly Tando stuff, I've used the Octagonal printer trays along with a cupcake, flowers, birds, hearts, letters and mini houses.






Thanks for dropping by.

Tando October Challenge........

Over at the Tando Creative Challenge blog for October the theme is SPOOKTASTIC.

I chose to make a Halloween styled wreath with as many spooky Tando products as I could.  The ring is made from corregated cardboard and I stuck on a variety of chippie bits.  I glued the cobwebs across the centre and mounted the alphas across it.

Rustic Charm

Here is my entry for the Tando Creative September Challenge, Rustic Charm. 

I have used the plaque pack, stitches mask, flourish and leaf flourish...all Tando of course LOL.  I made it a while ago so I'm not overly sure what I used....one day I will be efficient and write it all down!!  No doubt there were Eco Green paints and Viva Decor products in there somewhere.

Village life.......

I'm in love with Modroc LOL, I have been using some for this mini Christmas Village using the Tando mini houses and it is fabulous.

I think I take after my Dad when it comes to model making, he loved it too.....he was much better at it than me though. 

Anyhoo, I will be taking a class in November to make a village similar to this one over at The Craft Barn.  I think I might be making a few more first though because I had so much fun.
