Upcycled tin

A lovely freebie tin label courtesy of

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 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.
