Baby Blanket


Hey everyone

So I haven't crafted much at the lately I had some more back surgery so I couldn't really do much except crochet 

I've only been crocheting for about 3-4 months so still new to different stitches and patterns

I started so many different blankets and undid them all then I finally went with this one not 100% perfect like it should be but practice will help 

I love the border around the edge it just finishes it off 

My future son in law's sister just had a baby girl so it was perfect timing 

I chose Yellow, White and Grey even though I knew she was a girl they are such a pretty combination and could be used in any room

So here it is






Thanks for visiting and I hope you will be back soon xx

Max for My Time To Craft


Hey everyone

This months theme is either Halloween or Cats and seeing I live in Australia and don't really do Halloween I went with the cat (which I don't have but lucky for me my bestie and her family do)

This is a picture of Max unfortunately he passed away just recently so I made this frame for my friends daughter whose cat he was




The glass that was on the frame I painted the back of it with with Twinkling H2o's in pinks, yellows and oranges which are Shannon's favourite colours 


The stenciled pattern was done with Art Alchemy Graphite texture paste 
I love how it has the sparkles in it 
I also used it on the heart with a heart stencil


On all of the embellishments I used the Art Alchemy Metalique Wax in Brushed Iron


I stenciled around the edges of the frame and then brushed on some pink paint then rubbed it back with a wipe so it wasn't to bright

Mixed Media Supplies Design Team

Hey everyone

I have been lucky enough to have been picked for the Mixed Media Supplies Design Team

Make sure you check out the Facebook Page and Blog to see what projects the Design Team create with the great products that we have

So here is my first project 
I made a small tag using the Copper Mica Power and the Crackle background stamp



I used some heat and stick powder with some embossing powder on the little plastic heart 

I put a small about of the mica powder in some impasto to give the background some dimension


On my metal embellishment I used some versamark and some heat and stick powder so I could emboss the crackle stamp to add some texture and interest


 I did the same thing on the butterfly 
- you can also mix the mica powder in clear embossing powder and it will give you the same effect




Thank you for visiting I hope you will be back soon xx

Crochet - new found love




Ok so for years I thought I could never crochet 
I'm a lefty and it was hard to find someone to teach me but with the wonderful world of YouTube I found some left handed tutorials and now I'm hooked
I found this pattern and off I went





Thanks for visiting and I hope you will be back soon xx
