Purple Lilies Canvas – On the wall!

Back in November, I painted a large canvas of lilies for my mum as a present for Christmas. It’s the same purple colour as the new kitchen cupboards with some crystals on the petals too as mum loves anything that sparkles.

Anyway, she’s just sent me this picture because it’s  finally on the wall! Only a month is pretty impressive for her. I’m pretty sure I bought her something to hang in the hallway about six years ago and I have no idea where that even is.

It’s a pretty dark picture (she’s not going to win any photography awards any time soon), so I’ve posted my photo for the canvas as well for you to see!

Ted always delivers… my crafts

20150108_205155So I’ve found a use for my massive Ted Baker box that my new handbag came in. I really didn’t want to throw it out because it’s so much card and it’s a beautiful purple and green that I really like, so I blogged about it the other day trying to find some inspiration!

Anyway, my arts and crafts stuff was in the smallest box and it’s been overflowing for quite some time, so I’ve decided to use my lovely Ted box to sort it all out. It’s going to be so much easier to find what I need now! Here’s a little sneak peek at what’s inside:

  • Glue gun set – Because there’s so many things to glue.
  • Mason jars – Because there’s so many things you can do with them!
  • Acrylic paints – My favourite style of paint for bright, impactful colours.
  • Watercolour paints – Gorgeous for softer-style paintings
  • Pencils – Every type for every type of sketch.
  • Ribbons – In lots of colours!
  • Paper – For each different type of paint.
  • Crayons – Because sometimes I like to pretend I’m a child.
  • Felt-Tip pens – Because sometimes I still like to pretend I’m a child.
  • Modge Podge – The best sealant for crafts.
  • Paint brushes –
  • Glue sticks – That I never use because the glue gun’s too much fun.
  • Crystals – Every girl loves sparkle.
  • Sequins – Because why not?!
  • Sharpies – Because they should be a staple in every single thing you should do.

What to make next?
