Time Flies!!!


I can’t believe it has been a year and a half since my last blog entry!!! In that time, I’ve moved twice, my eldest has started school (now in year 1) and my youngest is walking/running and talking! I think I keep expecting (or hoping) that life will settle down just enough for me to do my own thing now and then. I’m starting to recognise and acknowledge how delusional that is!!! I have two kids, a husband, church and work and I live in 2012, life is not going to settle down! And even when there are moments of being less busy, generally I’ll be too exhausted to do anything creative!

Okay, enough talk! I do actually have something to show you!!!

I made this chest of drawers for a dear friend (my upline Kirrily) and filled it with choccies and Stampin’ Up! goodies! It is actually a Christmas present, although we still haven’t exchanged gifts yet!!!!!! Hopefully, she won’t check my blog!

I found a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for a single drawer, so I made that four times and stuck them together with sticky strip. I covered the joins and the drawer fronts, as well as the top with some Paisley Petals dsp (pg 128 of IBC). I then made two more drawers (in mini size) for the top and two ovals for the mirror. I used antique brads (pg 142 of IBC) for the drawer handles. I was really happy with how it turned out!

Another dear friend, Meighan, has inspired me to try some challenges to help get the creative juices flowing, so hopefully I’ll be back soon with another creation!

I hope you all have a lovely Easter!
