I woke up this morning, looked out of the window and was quite excited. It was raining. Yes, you heard me, I was excited to see rain on a Saturday morning. Outside was looking very glum and wet (this is part of my front garden), but that was going to be just fine with me.
Because I can spend the whole day indoors and do crafty things. . .
I did go out for a little while to my local craft shop . . and to my surprise it was very busy with other ladies buying craft items as well. We must have all had the same idea!!
I bought a few things I didn't really need . . but isn't this lace so pretty . . and the roses are gorgeous . . my real reason was to buy some card for my paper tole pictures.
So what am I currently making . . I spend ages making paper tole pictures and it does seem such a waste to place them on cards that might end up in the bin after one has celebrated his or her birthday (unless I send them to my mum and she re-uses them on other cards!!). So I had an idea.
(below: sideways view of the picture)
Instead of placing the picture onto a card, why not create a lasting gift instead. The one above is for a old friend of mine (who I went to school with). What do you think? Do you think this is a good idea. You will notice that I have removed the glass, so the picture stands out from the frame, showing the 3D effect. The lady herself has a gloss so she shines nicely.
