Half term and a little bit of creativity.

This week is half term so i am off with Miss G.  We have all been to Edinburgh for a long weekend which was a lovely break (apart from the weather!).  Thanks to the lovely Pootle for idea's of what to do and local craft shops.  I didn't manage to sneak to any of the craft shops whilst we were there but i did get to Cath Kidston and buy some lovely fabric.  Because its been half term i haven't had much chance to craft so i only have a few projects to show and they are mainly makes for my Folksy and Facebook shops as i have sold another 8 items in the last few days...

 I bought this as a plain untreated wood frame and sanded it down painted it white and added chipboard embellishments and East of India ribbon and backing card.

 This Grandad frame was also bought as a blank canvas and i have white washed it and sanded it in parts to give a worn effect then added Grandad and mod podged of the letters to make them durable and added a layered chipboard embellishemnt and co-ordinating backing paper.

 I had a number of wooden sheep left over from Easter and spring projects so i thought they would make nice keepsakes for Fathers Day.
 And finally a mobile phone case made using cath kidston Stanley fabric.

Now i'm off out into the garden as its a gorgeous day and lili has a friend coming over.  Have a nice day everyday x
