I'm almost finished making the Christening cards and gifts I was commissioned to design, I will try and get a  photo of them before they are collected so I can share them here.  I have an order due today with all of the Stampin' Up! products for my next full day workshop, so I'm planning to make up some projects this week.

I must catch up with taking photographs of the projects I have made recently, I never seem to get a spare minute & when I do my desk is usually piled up high?!

Hearts A Flutter

This is another project I made earlier in the year but not got around to sharing, I fuound this set of drawers for £4 in Sainsburys - bargain & they were perfect for altering.  I painted them cream & lightly sanded the edges to give a worn finish, then I rubbed some crumb cake ink along the edge to accentuate the worn finish.

This is the top of the drawers, decorated with the gorgeous Artisan Embellishment kit.

Lucy has now claimed ownership of the drawers!!
  • Hearts a Flutter stamp set & matching Framelits
  • Amour Amour designer paper

The school holidays are almost over, although we haven't been away due to the weather being so cold, we have had a few nice days out and completed some of the decorating we had planned for this year. I know Philip is looking forward to going back to school and I know I will enjoy a bit of peace and quiet too!!!   
I'm now starting to get my upcoming classes and workshops prepared for the next few months, places are limited, if you would like more information please contact me.  I'm hoping that when we eventually get some nice warm weather I can spend it outside sorting out the garden- we have a few "grand" plans for it this year?!!
