Mini tray


My handy husband made this tray from off-cuts, then I painted it with the grey paint left over from the garden shed. Inside, I lined it with some pretty wrapping paper protected by sticky backed plastic. This would also make a nice trinket tray for a dressing table – or a small tea tray!


Pen pots


After having new shelves in the kitchen, I decided the pens, pencils, stationery etc needed a good sort out. After the sort out, I then thought new pots were required! I am really pleased with the way these very cheap and easy pots have turned out. They are just made out of empty tins and wallpaper samples.

Christmas cards

Having only one opportunity a year to make (and send!) Christmas cards, I decided to make a few different varieties this year, especially as when the charity ones were returned from school, Minky’s were quite clearly unfinished (she had drawn a picture but only had time to colour in half!). So I helped the children create cards from images of Christmas jumpers they had drawn. I also wanted to create cards with a wreath design using different methods of printing dots.
