This year as well as card making I plan to expand my craftyness. Sewing, Cooking and Crochet to name a few. My mum dropped her sewing machine off the other day for me and I plan to use it. Have signed up to this site http://countryheartandhome.blogspot.com/ and plan to hopefully follow. This week it's Carrot cake mmmm and as I have a shop I really need to be on top of things occaision wise. So have sorted my shop a little, Cleaned the windows (wow) and trying to get ready for Valentines day. (think this is the next big date on the diary).I didn't realise I had so many red things but I just needed a bit more red so I painted some glasses I had. Never done this before but was pretty pleased with them.
And here's my Valentines shelves.
Also popped into the Charity shop to see if I could get a table cloth, Came out with a lovely one for £1.50 two pillow cases to practice sewing on 25p and this!!!
It cost me £1.50 !!!! Everything was 1/2 price. I love it. Planning on sanding it down and recovering the top but even if I don't get round to that it's perfect for all my sewing makes.
One more quick amazing thing.... I got an e-mail yesterday from Crafty ribbons. I think it was the first 10 e-mails they received they would send out a free pack of Valentines ribbons. I e-mailed not expecting anything and got confirmation this morning that I am going to get a pack. I am well chuffed with this. Never take the time to enter things like this but my new year, new start is really working fine. Just got another e-mail from them with a tutorial on how to make ribbon flowers. If anyone is interested it is here.http://blog.craftyribbons.com/post/What-do-you-do-with.aspx.
Things are looking good.
