Lickle Finds

Me and my daughter (4yrs) went hunting around the charity shops and these are the goodies we came back with. Jessica loves the little figures so i'm going to create a nick nack shelf for our dining room which is fast becoming a mecca of random objects lol.

These album covers are fab and so colourful.

These are my 20p bargains, they are so cute!

So tacky and so kitsch but we loved it. :D

More Button Rings

I have made some more button rings today using a mixture of new, vintage and used buttons.
These are piccys of my favs so far, the others need to be photographed.

Preparing for Craft Fair

Well assuming im not in hospital giving birth, I have a craft fair in May. So ive started working on bits to add to my collections.
Here are a couple necklaces that I love. I found a new charm supplier who I love, its a battle not to go buying everyday but it would kind of defeat the object of making some money lol

Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

I've been going button mad over the last couple weeks, a local boutique seems to be having a mass clear out and is selling vintage buttons for pennies. (whoop whoop) Every time I walk past I come back with a fivers worth lol

I've used some newer buttons as well but so far im liking them, they seem to have an retro style these are going in my craft fair box which is looking positively poorly lol

Bit Late Oops...

Well here are some very dodgy photos of my Mothers Day Gifts The first was a lovely 1950's butterfly winged pendant to match a ring my oh brought me a few months back.

The second is a fab new sewing box in a funky retro design. I adore them both and once I brave the mess that is my craft area I will fill my funkedy box up.

Credit Crunch Clothing...

Alas this pregnancy has taken over my life and I am struggling to do the basics let alone anything crafty.

I had a wonderful mothers day and recieved some gorgeous goodies, I will blog these later when I have done the pictures.

As times are getting tough, im trying to find ways to save on pennies but Jessica is going through clothes faster than I can buy them lol So I went to tescos and purchased some value t-shirts (£1.25) Here are the results so far...
