May Card for Christmas

Hello everybody and welcome to a new month.

Hope April was good for you and the change in the weather is certainly what we all needed.  Long may the sunshine last.

Anyway on with the crafting.

April was a busy month for me with a few orders to complete and also finishing off a crochet garment for myself (my first go at a garment other than shawls, blankets etc).  Will be posting pictures of the garment later next week but if you want a sneaky peak beforehand you can have a look on my Facebook account by clicking HERE and having a peep in my albums.

I am taking a break from making and listing cards and gifts on the website now until the end of May but will be back in June with a big big sale of already listed stock.  It will do me good to have a rest for a while.

Anyway onto the Christmas card for this month.

Here it is:

For this card I have used the following ingredients:

  • 7x7" card blank
  • Printed sheet of decoupage from Crafts U Print
  • The decoupage has been put together using Pinflair glue
  • Liquid Pearls in White Opal
  • Ice Stickles Glitter Glue in Crystal Ice 
  • Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red
  • Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Glue in Cosmic Twinkles
Thank you for popping by my blog.

Take care.

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.


1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

Hi everyone 

Hope you've been keeping well since my last post. 
I've been attending art group still and learning new techniques as I go. 
I've done a few paintings since I shared my owl one, which I'll be sharing later this month, but here is my recent completed one from start to finish. I used watercolours from Royal Langnickel and water soluble oil pastels which were really cheap from The Works, fur texture created with KohINoor pencils and Posca white pen. Hope you like it. Here's some close ups and the finished project all framed up.

Starting to watercolour the background and the background and watercoloured bunny beginning to add detail  Close up of the detail using the Kohinoor pencils  Hello there.....just look at the texture on the fur.

 I achieved the background flowers by just dabbing a paint brush in multi colours and then dabbing them onto the paper after adding brush strokes of green for the stems and grass.  Boo......just look at my beautiful eyes.  a…
