Happy Mother's Day - Polkadoodles - Winnie Sugar Sprinkles

Hello everyone

So today is Mother's Day and for all those celebrating today I'm just sharing with you a little quick make I made with an empty candle jar that I decorated up with Hessian and twine and a little tag and flowers and leaves and papers left over from my Winnie Sugar Sprinkles makes for the launch party last weekend.  I then printed some of the ladybirds from the Lily Bug Love collection onto shrink plastic and shrunk them using my heat tool and stuck those on the jar wrap as well.  Click on the Thumb Linkies below to go off to the website to buy your collections.

I gave the flowers to my mum yesterday as just a little extra present as I wouldn't be seeing her today and I then took her shopping and bought her scones and tea and some little cupcakes and a lovely Pandora 'mum' charm for her bracelet I bought her a Christmas and a safety chain as well as she was so nervous of wearing it and thought she was going to lose it all the time. 

We spent the whole day just chatting and eating yummy stuff and drinking tea and coffee.  Good day had by all.

Hope you have a good day with your loved ones, and if you are remembering somebody today that was a mum to you or like a mum to you that is no longer with you, then I send you my hugs and wishes that the day passes with fondness and good memories.

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…

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 4 - In Bloom

Hello everybody             
It’s Digi Choosday day again. These Tuesdays definitely come round really fast!!
Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.
This week our challenge is  ‘IN BLOOM’.
I love searching the internet for new things to make and also getting inspiration and as soon as I saw the craze for making teacup art I instantly knew that this week’s challenge would fit this project perfectly.  I had a teacup that had a wonderful soy candle in it and was wondering what I could make with the empty cup.  Here is a step by step picture tutorial of my make (with the exception of one ingredient which is magic and you'll have to scroll to the bottom of my blog post to find out what it is).  I resized and printed some of the flowers from the Eden Collection and put them to one side.  I gathered my ingredients...  cup and saucer, bird cage, toadstools and reindeer moss and then using the magic ingredient started to assemble my make.

I then added the flowers and…

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!!!

2.  Just…
