Old faithful

You know what it's like - when all else fails - you go back to things you know and love. I was so happy when Karin set a forum challenge to make a tag inspired by Tim Holtz. Out came the distress inks and crackle paint, masks were employed and a tag was duly made. Hope you like it

Tote-tastic day!

I picked up these great tea towels in the sales last summer and have done nothing with them. Having been firmly told by my family that Mothers Day was only to include things that I wanted to do I decided to blow the dust off the sewing maching and have a go at the totes I was first introduced to over on Joanne's blog. Apart from curtains and cushion covers I haven't done any sewing so I was pleased with these as first efforts. Really handy for quick gifts!

Something new

I've had another busy week, but it was a happy one. Had a lovely afternoon/evening out on Thursday, meeting the lovely Audrey and Kaz for a bit of retail therapy and a great meal. Good friends, good times. I was led astray of course and inspired by the gorgeous jewellry that Audrey and Carrie have made to have a go. For a first try I went for the safe option of a set of beads, all picked out and coordinated for me. But I could definitely see me branching out in due course.

Happy Mothers Day! This was the card I made for my Mum, with her tastes and likes specifically in mind. I know she loves it and that's what counts.

Have a great day all!

Stash Busting

This is a hanging I made with some bits and pieces that I thought I would never use. I challenged some close friends to do the same and will post the links to their sites as they blog.

Crafting has been quiet for me at the moment with the exception of a challenge piece that I can't show you yet - hurry up girls!! ;o) Maybe this week........

In the meantime, I'm having a lot of fun browsing and playing on Flickr at the moment, great source of inspiration so I though I would make a mosaic using the questions that Erita has on her blog. I'll post the instructions below the mosaic. This is what my answers gave me. I like it!
