I had a dream last night

I found my self in a sun drenched garden ...
Surrounded by sweet scented flowers...
That transformed into a vast sea...
I took some photo's to show you...
And as I did, the sea turned back to flowers...

Crafty Cleverness - Suits you!

Get ready to raid charity shops and car boot sales looking for old suitcases.
These are some of my favourite new uses for something that you might use only a few times.
Cute suit case chair! Add chair legs and comfy cushions to make a unique piece.
Fab shelves made by taking the case apart and nailing both sides to the wall. Sweet!
I love this bedside table made with different coloured cases topped with a chunky framed mirror, genius!
Ready to go picnic!
Use your old cases as draws in a tall chest of draws.
Use them as handy storage tables by adding legs from old scratched tables.
Make your dog a thrown fit for a king! Use old stool legs and a comfy cushion with vintage fabric! Use the cases inside pocket for his toys, maybe even paste some pics of his favourite walk inside!
Get organised by making little compartments for your crafty bits. An instant craft business on the go!
Hope you enjoyed these fab ideas! Enjoy being crafty!

Whoops! Macaroons gone wrong

Things don't always work out the way you planned.
At times like this it's good to remember,
"Real girls aren't perfect, perfect girls aren't real."
I've got no idea how I did it but I've now tried to make macaroons twice and both times I've made....

Looking at some vids on you tube I think I didn't beat the eggs enough..

It's amazing what chocolate frosting and sprinkles can do!
I felt a bit defeated after doing it twice but hopefully third time lucky!
