Upcylcled, Recycled, or just rescued from the bin wagon!


So I said id show you what this looks like after my team of creative goddess's got to work...

I bought some strong castors from Screwfix, couple of sheets of thin mdf from Wickes...

Susan and Brenda tackled the construction phase..

Then Michelle did the pretty bit with a roll of wallpaper and bit of lace, I was just going to paint it but what a cool idea from Michelle!

Ta daaa!

I'm very happy with my new till cabinet, thank you ladies!

Been a bit busy....

Good evening! Did you think id evaporated?

Well some of you will know what's been keeping me busy, some of you won't...

You remember I moved into my little unit at the beginning of the year? Well, I've outgrown it already and have been moving into a new bigger one with separate shop space!

I haven't got too many pics yet because things only started moving along last weekend when some good buddies came over to help...

Susie 10 toes was the construction manager, or was it destruction, anyway she loves power tools!

Cindie was supposed to be catering manager and chief seamstress, but she dabbles too.

Michelle the merchandising specialist, she has other skills too,show you tomorrow.

Some people managed to dodge the camera...Jane, Brenda, Stella, Sharon, Martin.

Gotta show you this....

It's an old half torn apart set of filing drawers or something similar, I spotted it next to the communal bin and knew exactly what I could do with it, so I had it on my trolley within minutes and whisked it away to safety!

Come back tomorrow and I will show you what it looks like now it's been UPCYCLED, Michelle said that sounds better than recycled, snob!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Bon something or other! Or plain old good afternoon from France!

So was the long journey worth it? Yep.

I've created a few nice bits....

The one on the left was a bit of a collaboration with Paul Church, he makes nice flowers.

The tag was an experiment with some water soluble crayons that Sam Crowe threw at me.

Speaking of Paul and Sam....

Mandy Branston taught me to draw an eye...

And we have even had a day out sightseeing today.

The sun is shining so I'm off to sit and chill, have a good weekend.

Purple Twilight


I thought I would steal five minutes to blog, it's officially my enforced sit down between tasks, very frustrating not being able to just crack on and get everything done but such is life.

So, without further waffle and dribble, here is the first of my Clarity samples from Barbara's show this morning, I did see the second hour but not the whole show.

I was quite happy with this but then added the misty bits through the sky, which I now wish I had left alone, I may re-do this when I have time and change the colour too.

Anyway, I used...

Remountable Moorhens and Nuthatches

Woodland animals


Tree Branch from the Fly Away set

Purple Twilight Adirondack

So that's my sit down over, back to it, soooo much to do its scary.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Rainbow Dolphins

Good evening!

I was starting to slip into bad blogging habits again, so I thought I would do a quickie before bed...

I was looking through piccies to see what I can show, I have one final card left to blog from last months Clarity telly with Barbara.

I'm already a huge fan of the Filigraphy Seahorses so when I saw the Dolphins I was delighted.

I spotted a couple of challenges that my card it... By the sea Use those bright colours So bright gotta wear shades

I thought this might make a nice kiddies card, particularly with the word chains.

Also thought it might be nice to line them all up and spell child's name across them, but only thought of that after the deadline.

Speaking of deadlines, I managed to get this months telly samples posted with a day to spare! Come back tomorrow and I'll give you a sneak peek of one of my cards.
