embroidered bird

 I was helping my parents clear out their linen cupboard the other day and came across this embroidered chair back cover I had made for them when I was a teenager. I thought I'd share it with you.  I think I would do it a bit differently now, but it is still nice and bright and colourful and they do say it's the thought that counts!

shrink plastic and dies

I've been trying out using my Cuttlebug machine and some Dies to cut shrink plastic. It works really well. I've made some earrings using these Tonic-Studios dies.
Hmm,  I wonder what I should make next?

T shirt makeover

With the help of some wonderful new dies from Tonic Studios, I cut out some flowers from scraps of fabric and turned what was once a dull boring long sleeve t-shirt, into a pretty flowery one. 
For a few more details of how I made this, please check out this post at Blog Tonic. Thanks.

Before ...

After !  
What a crazy kid ! :-)

Things I've been making...

I've been playing around with the Cricut Mini and have been making some sweet little magnifying bookmarks. Great to pop into an envelope with a card for a little gift.
I've also been working on some little notebooks, but am now waiting on some teeny tiny magnets for the closure as I think the velcro is too bulky.
I've also been doing a spot of can find out more about how this card was made over at Blog Tonic.
Today...more well as trying to get this place ship shape- a never-ending task!
