What is Decoden?

Hello all, well I have taken the plunge and started to sell my goodies at craft fairs.  The first one was a bit nerve racking but I really enjoyed it. My daughter has also joined in and has started making Decoden Phone Cases.. "Decoden, what is that? " Well its easier to show you then explain.

You use silicone piped through a piping tip and lots of  resin and clay cabochon's. On this one she has used a few Pokemon figures on the back of a clear phone case I think this one is for an iphone 5 .  Check out her etsy shop for more siliconed goodness.

Start of the School Year - Have a Heart

Hello everyone, hope we are all fine and well.  I have got to start updating my blog more often, there is always so much to do and so little time to complete it all. 
 Here in the UK it is the start of our new school year so we have lots of children starting the next journey in their learning. The first day is always the scariest.  I do think its worst for us Mum's. 

 I have a few things to show you today that I had posted on my Facebook page awhile ago, if anyone knows of an app that will post to all social media sites in one go please let me know. 

First thing I have to share with you guys are these pretty MDF hearts that I have been decorating and selling at craft fairs.  This one has one of the recipe cards from Lilli of the Valley.  Comes in a set of four (see those's ones later). 
I have used the mini tattered floral die set from Tim Holtz and the mover and shapers flowers too.  The flowers have been covered with glass glitter and adorned with pearls in the centre.  
Its finished off with a few wooden butterflies, raffia, string pearls and distressing.  
They can be hung on the wall too.   

Hope you enjoy I will be back later with lots more goodies to show you. 
I you like the look of this, you can find it on my Etsy Store

Enjoy the rest of the day, I off to work now after the long summer holidays.

What are Stick Pins?

Lets talk about stick pins.  What are they? These little treasures are a smaller version of the traditional hat pin.  Hat pins are roughly 6" long and these stick pins are roughly 6 cm to 6.5 m long.  I have used smaller beads and embellishments so they are light weight making them idea for scrapbooking, card making and mini albums.  If you fancy treating yourself head on over to my website.  and taking a nosy at some of the ones I have on sale.

Been away far too long!

Well hello stranger I haven't written for soooo long, it has taken me most of the day to remember how it all works. But I'm back to crafting again after the long break.  
I have been very busy over the last 7 months with lots of crafty things to show you all. 

 So what have I been up to. One of our  holidays  last year we traveled to Turkey, it was my first time visiting Turkey and I must say I really enjoyed it.  It was just the girls (Mum, Daughter, Sister and Me) it was so nice to relax by the pool with a book in the sun also spending some quality time with my family.  We all experienced a Turkish Bath and massage which cleanses the skin giving you a longer lasting tan and it worked! I have tan line even now 7 months later.  

I have also branched into making my own cold process soaps, its a lot of fun but I always seem to make an awful lot of washing up! Pictures to follow. 

More news later I want to show a commission that I created last week for an 18th birthday. I made up a box and a band with 18 on the front (so out of practice taking photos forgot to take one of the box)

  I used copics to colour, paper roses which got a splattering of picket fence crackle paint. The cream flowers and butterfly I molded from the new modge podge glue, love this as its so easy to paint.  

Anyway that's it for me tonight I'll be back tomorrow with another make.
