By the Sea - Scrapbook page


Now the nights are getting cold and dark, I wanted to bring a little sunshine to my day so I made an 8 x8 scrapbook page on my little girl.

I have used so many off cuts of card and paper from my stash and made this page. Keeping the off cuts from cards and other projects I have done, makes my scrapbooking so much easier as I find I have ready made mats and layers.

Thanks for stopping by, see you all soon with another crafty project.

Sewing the night away


I'm not much of a sewer but I do like to get my machine out once in a while and give it a go. I decided to make a tic tac toe board game as it was an easy and quick project to make. Using some white fabric I found and some scrap floral fabric I came up with this.

Floral scraps and white fabric. I love these buttons.

My finished game. I just need someone to play against now. 

Thank you for stopping by, please leave a comment below. See you all again soon with another crafty project.

Powertex Evening

Good evening,

I took a Powertex class at the beginning of the month and came home really wanting to try and see if I could make a statue. here is what I managed to make.

These are not hammers, they are the base for the statue.

I mounted the head and wrapped the body in cotton and painted the Powertex over everything. 

Using an old cut up t-shirt and odd bits of fabric from around the house I dipped them in Powertex and made them into her outfit.

All finished.

I hope you like it, I really enjoyed this project.

See you soon with another crafty project.
