Here we go, the long awaited Daisy Tiaras. I so enjoyed making these and we popped along to the evening reception: the bride looked gorgeous and the bridesmaids were lovely.

Here's hoping for some more bridal orders. They're so much fun!

Magnetic Noticeboard

When I saw this tutorial over on madigan made I really wanted one. Not only that but I thought they would make fab presents so I set about making one for my sister whose birthday was approaching.

I found this fab paper at Flutterby Crafts (I bought several for myself and still can't decide which to go for). I bought the spray paint on Ebay (it's for retouching a car!) and I also bought the little wooden birds, which became the magnets, on Ebay. I think they're meant for card making but I have hot glued magnets to the back.

I didn't fancy the tie hanging madigan made used so I used epoxy glue to stick a hook to the back

I was so pleased with it. Now I need to decide which paper I am going to use for my board and find some suitable magnets. Here it is again!

I will try to pop back again this week to show off the tiaras I mentioned!

Ooo things are growing!

Long time no blog... again! But look, things are growing in the garden. How exciting! We even ate radishes from PJ's plot this weekend.

I've been making a couple of things, though craft time is seriously depleted by being at work three days a week! I can't reveal anything today as one is the tiaras I mentioned, for a friend's wedding, not til next weekend and the other is a present.

Be back soon!
