Up-cycled frames


Well we have been moving our room around, we have a little more wall space and I painted up these cheap plain wooden frames today with Prima paints and then used the treasured gold, copper to distress them, (my new fave product) so pleased with the results and a fraction of the cost they would have been, later I am going to add some Prima Junkyard quotes to make them just finished

They look great on the wall so very happy xxxx

Morning everyone,

   Well although i have done a few projects this week I have very little on my work desk today for WOYWW 258.

I started a new job on monday and it has been intense classroom work all day everyday since so here is what is on my desk as I have not had the will to do very much but collapse at the end of the day.

These are really cute pin wheels not too sure what I am going to do with them yet??

 Here is a puzzle I have started with my kids and it takes ages but loads and loads of fun.

Love Andrea x

My family of Mice

   so after a hectic week, i was offered an interview for a job I didn't apply for and got it!! Only a few hours a week so I can still spend time as a mummy and wife and craft loads! I have been running here there and everywhere and have been doing SAT revision with my daughter!
     Oh and i managed to make these adorable mice x

So here they are :

Now meet them individually:

Meet Molly:

 I have loved making these cute mice. They are all available via my Etsy shop on the side link. So now I have to decide whats next? Maybe some paper crafts? who knows I will post it soon though.

   So this week I have actually remembered we are on Wednesday today! These bank holidays keep throwing me out and I seem to loose a few days in the mix?!!

So this week for WOYWW 257, I am working on some very cute Mice Teddies :

You see I have had a bag making obsession for the last week! So thought I would try something new?!

I will post them when I have finished them, which hopefully is soon, but it has already been one of those weeks!

Cute little bag


    I was going to pop over the stamping ground for WOYWW (Wednesday!) but when I realised it was actually Wednesday yesterday it was a little late at 11pm!!! Silly me.

Here is what I have been working on. A oh so cute little girl's bag.

I just love the fabric. I have a really nice stash of cute fabrics now.....

so will be making lots more over the coming days.
