Boo Makes

I have been a BUSY crafty bee over the past few weeks.

I even did my first craft fair last week with a couple of friends and had a really lovely morning drinking tea, eating cake and buying bits from other peoples stalls!

This is the state of my etsy shop at the moment...

I have LOVED making the glass light blocks and they have been really popular this year.

This is one of my favourites - its so vintage Cath Kidston-y!

I'm hoping to come up with some year round designs too. Something for mothers day or weddings perhaps.

Watch this space.

Christmas in Sylvania

The human house is duly festooned with glittery, sparkly stuff and so I thought it'd be a great idea to get the children to decorate one of the Sylvanian families houses.

I was inspired having stumbled across this picture....

Can't be too hard I thought.  *Cue Pinterest Fail*

 I had some white felt for snow (not enough) and I bought some pretty red and gold cord (which frays as soon as you look at it) and a pair of scissors to snip festive garlands and wreaths.

And this what I ended up with....

It looked really cute for the first 10 minutes (I'm sorry you missed it) until we discovered that double sided sticky tape just isn't strong enough to hold up and the cord started to fray.

Less 'Christmassy' and more 'aftermath of a storm'.

Oh well - the thought was there!!

I would love to see some successful decorating attempts.
