Crafting



After our outing on Saturday to the markets, Sunday was a good day to stay at home and do a bit of crafting for my family. Firstly it was for my little girl. To help with her school work I had number posters and sight words blue tacked to her wall. I know it doesn't sound pretty, it did help her though but it was time to pretty it up. So around the blog world I had seen some tutorials for making tissue flowers and thought she might like them. We headed to Spotlight together to choose some tissue paper and I followed this tutorial to make them. They tore easily and required some patience to make so after a bit too much tearing on one of them she was left with three to decorate her room.



The next project was a mat for Molly's dog bowls to keep them up off the floor. I got the project from the
same book I made her blanket. All it needed was some oil cloth, glue and a scrap piece of wood. I think she likes it:)


And it seems like ages since I've shown anything to do with my paper craft so here is a quick little gift idea I wanted to share with you. My daughter plays the flute at school and is also lucky enough to have a neighbour who also plays the flute and teaches her each Tuesday. She didn't want any money so I like to thank her by giving her some of my cooking or if I haven't cooked I buy her a little something. This week I hadn't cooked so I bought some chocolate, wrapped some white cardstock around it with a bit of decorative tape, added some flowers and a pearl, that's it, quick and easy.


Sorry for not stopping by and visiting, I hope to pop by and see what you've been up to tomorrow. See you then!
