So I hope you all had a great bank holiday weekend, I am loving the fact that it's already half way through the week and that it's now nearly the weekend :)
Our weekend was spent with old friends and started with a damp but fun BBQ (what did we expect?! No one books a BBQ for bank hol weekend, it is destined to rain!!) However, on Sunday I had a go at some new crafts with "K" whilst the boys played golf. Here's what we tried:
Using some very detailed (and a tad confusing at times) instructions from Pinterest we created a hand bound fabric covered notepad each using some very pretty fabric I picked up in the Liberty's off cuts bin (love that place!) and decorated the outside
I have to admint, not bad for a first attempt... look forward to making more!
After seeing a post by a fellow blogger The Pea Pod on glass engraved tea light holders I just had to give it a go and after seeing her designs thought it would be great if I could make 40 for our wedding next year (hmmmm!)
So I purchased an engraver and attempted my first "simple" dandelion design. NB - need to buy some safety specs!! This is the result.....
I think need I need to practice first before I attempt the more complicated designs for the wedding.
But anyway, it was good fun and kick started me back into trying new crafts and look forward to whatever I try next.
What crafts have you tried or shall I try next?! Answers below greatly appreciated!!
Until next time...
