Happy New Year, I’m back!

Hi everyone, happy new year to all and hope you have a great 2016. It has been ages since I last posted. Life happens… other things took up a lot of my time. It’s sort of strange trying to  get back into the swing of blogging. I feel like I am starting all over again.

Even though I have been busy,  I still managed to get a bit of crafting done, now and again, and I hope to share with you all what I have been up to in the craft world.

Here is  a ‘before and after’ of a used glass bottle I worked on recently. For those who remember me, will also remember I love roses, hence the inspiration for the design of this bottle. I painted roses on the front and back, so the roses behind show through, this wouldn’t be noticeable when filled. To give it the finishing touch, I  trimmed it with a little bit of  cream vintage lace, pink organza ribbon and a little rosebud.

I hope this inspires you to think twice before throwing stuff away, what about making 2016 a year of..reduce, reuse and recycle and do a little for this beautiful planet we live on.
