My heart canvas

I made this picture for my bedroom wall; it's a fairly large canvas - about 20" x 12", and it's mostly made from bits in my vastly overflowing scrap box.
I sewed 3 little buttons at the bottom of each heart. Because I like things in groups of 3.
I love it, but it got me thinking - this would be a great thing to make out of all those cute, sentimental baby clothes. Like a memory canvas for a nursery. What do you think?

Easter Giveaway!!

 Would you like to win these Easter goodies?
You would?
There's an Easter card with a padded bunny motif...
There's a cotton treat bag - filled with chococolate ...
There's an emergency chocolate pocket - including chocolate of course...
And there's a very ugly, boggle eyed chicken.
But she does have a chocolate egg up her bum, so that's good.
(Her name is Ethel.)

So, what do you have to do to be a winner??
  • You could leave a comment on this blog post and I will put your name in the proverbial hat.
  • If you are a new follower to this blog you will get an extra entry. (Make sure you tell me in your comment.)
  • You could like me on Facebook - all new likers from today will be in with a chance.
  • If you visit my facebook page you will also be able to get more entries by sharing and commenting there.
(Disclaimer; all these items have been made by me, they are not toys and should not be given to children without supervision - they might choke on a little bead or scoff all the chocolate.)

The giveaway closes on the 26th March so that I can get the goodies posted by Easter.
(And if you live locally I will also give you 6 lovely free range eggs from my chickens!)

Linking up with handmade Thursday at White Lily Green.

How to upcycle a gin bottle...

...decant your washing up liquid into it, add a pouring spout from Ikea and ta-dah!!
I'm sure I have loads of other stuff which needs decanting. Better finish another bottle!

A traditional card

A friend requested a mother's day card for her mum "who insists on calling it mothering sunday."
This is just papercraft, the letters cut on the Cricut machine, embellished with a ribbon and a single brad.
