Hello everybody and happy Thursday to you.

Well last week I shared a card I'd made using two of the new die range from Polkadoodles and I'm back again to share another make with you that has taken me a few days to make and plenty of printing and cutting and sticking for me.  This time I've used the very aptly named 'Versatile door window flap' die which you can get HERE

This is my make and I've used a variety of different Polkadoodles collections to make it as listed here...

The wooden paper from the Winnie & Rocco Starfish and Sandcastles collection
Template for the Milk Carton from the Festive Hollybobs Collection Work & Play 5 Collection
The wallpaper for the inside of the milk carton from the Festive Christmas Collection
The background scene from the Festive Christmas Collection
The window and door red coloured tops and bottoms from the Festive Christmas Collection
Santa's clothes and snowman and tree from Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun collection
The robin from the Festive Christmas Collection.
Doors and windows cut from the die above

Other bits and and white twine will be used to tie the top up,
Red and white twine for the washing line, Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard
Black Sharpie marker for the windows and white snowy effective acetate from Hunkydory
Red sharpie pen for colouring the doors and window frames

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Take care

i have just bought this die and have not got a clue how to cut all those little windows out. is there a tutorial at all?

You need to cut the main door die out first and then position the smaller rectangular die over the top of where you would like to cut and tape it down with some low tack tape and cut again. Move the smaller die around as to where you'd like to cut ....use the examples on the packaging for ideas

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…
