Still Crafting

So, the craft bug has bitten me bad and I go to bed at night with a million ideas racing around in my head, but I love it!

I picked up these pretty tile hooks in NZ, but I'm not into pretty so much any more....





so with a coat of black paint around the border,(looking better already), 3 white tiles and painted initials for each of my kids....




they are ready for 3 fluffy white towels to be picked up off the floor(!) and hung up.


Next, I brought these stones back from NZ too. I guess they looked a bit suss to the customs officer as he did a bag check.


I popped them in this nice shadow box (also from NZ, I love The Warehouse!) and found a spot for them here.





And last, but not least, I framed these wee Kimmidolls for my youngest daughter. She is into anything Japanesey at the moment, (how do you make a japanese parasol fit into try-hard scandanavian decor?!?!)











Just in need of 2 pretty hooks.






This is the birthday cake I made her in December and it went down a treat (literally!)

Oooh Ange you are so clever. Love what you got up to today. That cake is divine - was it hard to do? Well, i painted (1st coat) the bathroom cabinet and washed all my slipcovers which is my most hated job ever. not exactly creative but...
Love the pegs and rocks and all of it. Mel xxx
