Recently I was given some frames to recycle and do something? with, thanks Don! I suddenly got inspired to recreate a new look for my front entrance area that has always been a difficult space to make work, that seems comfortable, as it is not a huge area.
Hiding in the shed was a very worn chest of drawers which i just love, and i had started to sand back some years ago( another incomplete project) anyhoo, thought i would just dust off the dust and move it back inside. I have added a great mirror that i picked up treasure hunting for $5.00.
Then too decorate...as u can see in the pic, this is how i have it now. On the table top are some frames that i have made., going with the beachy theme.
I have been doing soooo many little projects this week it is really hard to share it all at once, so I am going to share a little each day for the next few days.
It is exactly the feel that is me, and i am so content in the earthy, rustic, beachy, shabby chic look, that completes my soul. So, all up one happy little crafter here. I have got the serious redecorate and craft bug its not funny, look out kids Mums on a creative roll, so don't stand in her way. I have managed to find time to feed and bath them, in between, and they have also helped me a little along the way..thanks boys.xxx

These simple gift tags, have been stashed away for a few years now, i went mad on making them at some point, theyre still real pretty and will be put out for sale real cheap at my next upcoming market. I've put 6 in a bag and will sell for $1.00. Cheap!
A few weeks ago, when tripping thru one of my fav. weekend markets, my dear friend and I came across some gorgeous handmade mulberry paper. In many colours, so this week I made these pink envelopes with a sheet of it and stamped on a starfish. Bit cute i thought so i will be making some more......of course, more colours to experiment with.

School is back, so a lot focus has been around school stuff and the occupation with the new playgroup forming at the school. I spent some time repainting, stencilling, and designing the Playgroup sign, which was enjoyable, tedious, and eventually rewarding, it was greatly appreciated so that is even better. Some things you do just for the love of it!
I also whipped up a personalised Chalkboard, which looks real nice with the name stencilled on, I'm sure that it will be an enjoyed gift. I put some nice ribbon on the back so that it can be hung on the wall too.
I haven't done any beading for a time, but starting to feel the urge to do some more , so we shall see what i may get into next. Au-revoir for now.t.

The gorgeous twiggy heart i picked up with few others really cheap for $1.00 each. The little crown I scored the other day on a huge, sale of Christmas dec's, this was the only one i got. I now wish i had got more, as you always do when you find something really nice to do with them. However i did get a heap of other Chrissy Dec's really cheap at 50c each. Which i can't wait to create something with. I even got a heap of christmas chocolate tooo...not that i needed that, but it was sooo cheap, so i had to buy it.
I think this turned out really lovely what do you think? As i don't have a pretty girls room for this, and if you would like to purchase it email it so we can make arrangements.

I have been finding loads of inspiration from other blogs. A visit to a trash n' treasure this morning, saw me walk away with my arms full. I am slowly but surely making progress! I love making old things new again and giving them that 2nd life. (I will be back for more!)
I discovered I had heaps of disused photo frames, which i have loads of ideas to redecorate them. Here is one idea i came up with yesterday. Personally i love it and it was soooo simple. So, of course when i really like something i do, I made more, and then I ran out of frames. Keep a future eye out for my Fairy cute Frames, as i have ideas for more!!!!
