15 Minute Fix

Its time for 15 minute fix. It really does amaze me what you can get done in 15 minutes!  I was just sitting there looking around my house and out of the corner of my eye I could see the window sill in the lounge, it was bugging me. Every time I walked into this room it bugged me, yet I didn't really do anything about it. Well that just changed.



Yes Its not perfect and it all needs to be repainted but I'm happy I'm not looking at crap all over the place. :)

Now what I want from you, Look around your house right now...Do you see something you can do in 15 minutes that would make  marked go and do it!! Then come back and tell me bout it!!

Thanks Jennie

My Biggest Art Project To Date!

 So it was time to challenge myself and well, I don't do things by half's. I took the Mixed media to a whole new level for me, this is by far the biggest thing I have ever made. And I found it hard....really hard.

This big plank of wood started out as the top of a old computer desk I pulled apart a few weeks ago. After looking at it for a couple of days thinking "hmmm I have an idea" it was time to just do it and after a couple of false starts this is the end result.

 Just so you can see the size. Photo taken with my 5 year old Annabel

Now the question is do I try and make more this size?!?!

Things I'm Loving

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for no matter how simple it is. 

Happy Mail, and cute elephants

New hair cuts, after wanting a hair cut for a while my husband finally told me to sit my bum down so he could do to be honest I hated it at first but I have gotten used to it now and love it.

Not the best pic of it but my new lounge suite...ekkkk so LOVE it.

The new skate park, man that place it awesome, I can see us spending a lot of time there over the summer, I will be doing a real post about that at a later date :)

New craft room, more about that later too :)

Updating A Mixed Media Canvas.

So it was time to update Annabels canvas, 

This is what it looked like before, I used a heap of scraps up and it was really cute for a while. But them everything started to fall of and it was just naff, it got put away in the ill fix that one day basket, and there it stayed till about 3 days ago

And now it looks like this!

I was a bit worried after I finished it, it's not what you would call really girly, while yes it is pink and has girly colours and patterns I really thought it might be a bit teenage girl-ish, but Annabel loved it so all goods!!

All the paper came from
Crate Paper: Paper Hearts collection
American Crafts: 5th & Frolic collection

I am very sorry about the video thou, I have a new camera and well I'm still working out the bugs, and also, I have changed my scrapbooking corner and I am still in a transitioning stage with it all so this was filmed at my dinning table with not the best lighting. but I hope you will forgive me!!

Thanks for looking!
