Home Bar accesory


A handy gift for the home bar enthusiast .... a board for the wall with the bottle opener attached.
I printed off these labels I found free on the internet, which I love ( cos I love Bud.) Am sure this gift will be appreciated.....

Wedding sign

 I was asked to make a wedding sign for the reception so this is what I came up with....having done the front I thought the bride would not have any use for it afterwards, so on the back added the names and date of the wedding for her to keep at home.

Halloween Black Heart


I had a couple of these hearts left over so spray painted them black.

Put on a large spider and skull on the first one then added ribbons
On this one added a hanging skeleton and spiders etc. This is an easy Halloween decoration and quick to make too.

Glass Painting

                                       My first attempt at glass painting using Alcohol Inks
This turned out lovely I think. I added dimension using outline paint.  





After finishing off a bottle of vino Colapso I decided to wash it out, remove the label and printed off this Halloween one. I tied some jute cord around and then added my little spiders. A great cheep idea for Halloween props.

Wooden signs

 A few little wall hangings I have been working on of late....

This one is for a Bride to give to dear friends she cannot include as bridesmaids. My customer ordered three of these and was very pleased.
Next this is a one for a Dad from his sons...a bit of a joke one this but what the customer wants the customer gets lol..x
It says bring wine and Nibbles
A little Christmas Wish list complete with peg note holder.

 This one says it all I think with pegs to hold the pictures

Shabby tins

 From this tin of pears I thought I would create a little shabby tin holder for my brushes....and here it is so quick and easy. I printed off the label courtesy of www.strawberrymommycakes.com .... Ate the contents of the tin (YUM with cream)
Next  I spray painted it with Heirloom White satin finish Painters Touch by RUST-OLEUM
Added a bit of vintage trim and there she is in all her glory lol!
Bys for now

Upcycled tin


A lovely freebie tin label courtesy of www.strawberrymommycakes.com

First I spray painted my tin...then all I had to do was print off the label and hey presto....a cute shabby vase
to dry out a few Hydrangea flower heads.

French Shabby

French shabby sign I made using the reverse printing method and modge podge direct onto the wood. 
After its dry you wet it slightly and rub off the paper...leaving (hopefully) the image. this method I love so much . The Graphics Fairy again supplied the image. Many many thanks to her.
This is probably one of my favourite's so far .

Wedding Reception sign

 After making the invitations for this wedding, the bride asked me to make a sign 
to point the guests to her reception...here it is. I decided to make the back a sign so that she can use it later in her home. 

 A lovely keepsake and she was thrilled.


I have been so busy lately and neglected my little humble blog hope my readers forgive me.
Had 2 visits to my daughters in a matter of months...the first for the birth of our grandson Jaxon and stayed until the new year. Then I went back on my own to lend a helping hand whilst our Son-in-law was away from the family for a few months doing his duty in the Marines. Had a blast but now back to my little home business crafting and trying to sell haha.
