Good morning folks,
I literally shuddered when I realised it was time for the November challenge over at Altered Eclectics already. November!! Where did the rest of the year go?
I guess I'd better step up the Christmas cards and presents if I want to have any chance of getting ready in time (especially considering I have both kids' birthdays still before then too!).
Speaking of presents, my daughter told me she was in need of a moneybox recently. Luckily I had visited the MDF man this summer, so had some blanks to play with. I grabbed one, and set to work with a beautiful napkin I picked up at Live & love crafts, and decoupaged it (after giving it a coat of tattered Rose paint, of course. It had to be pink!)
She really loved the cluster of flowers and other goodies I added on top. I also included my favourite bark hearts - when I heard L&LC was closing down, I immediately rushed off to buy half a dozen packs of them, as I tend to use them a lot and couldn't bear to run out! - I also had to add a little cherub charm to go with the cherubs on the napkin.
When my daughter was little, I always called her "angel", rather than calling her by her name. Apparently a lot of people thought it was her name for a while, lol.
And that's my daughter's brand new moneybox. Do pop over to the altered eclectics blog, and come and play with us this month!
I'll be back in a moment with another post!
