Darren and i attended a craft course that was held at our usual craft crop spot and taught by Donna-the pack was included and we had a very detailed brief. Darren set to on his scrapbook page and really enjoyed himself-he went ahead and made his own decisions on designing the page and i learnt some new techniques myself. perhaps we will be able to do more of this together in the future............... photos to follow

the chairs were £1.04 and need repainting, the dressing table was 99p and the nest of 1970s tables were £4.99. i love a good bargain.

here are some photos of darren and my father in law cutting out a

door from the garage for the start of my craft cabin!!! i cant wait as it will be my own area to create and not have to worry about putting things away afterwards.

there are also some photos of the girls in their tent that i bought from ebay-we set up camp in the frontroom as the weather was bad and darren was brick laying outside too. we had so much fun and the girls bonded more together.

i have being busy making another recycled decoration for the outside of the house i think following the inspiration from ruth spaak-i bought some small cable ties from ebay and darren got me some washers, so i made a type of bunting. my fingers were sore after it but im really pleased with the result-
i put this project on busymitts and got lots of lovely comments about it.....
we will be re-decorating our dining room asap and it will be 1960s inspired featuring our treasures from ebay and these are the final colour choices-the grey will be the archway but i love the blue and darren loves the green!!! who will win???????????

piccies below of mine and maddies biscuit decorating session:we used nutella spread, marshmallows, raisins and digestive biccies. we put them in the fridge so the spread would go hard and they tasted soooooooooo yummy!!!
