Lamp Shade make over - I had this old yucky lampshade in the kitchen and decided to cover it.  I cut up an old apron that I got from a second hand shop years ago that was looking a bit sad in places itself.  The cross stitching was still good and a lot of hard work gone into doing it.  I cut the apron material to size, glued it onto the yucky shade, tied the straps around the top and there it is.... a brand new, suit my country kitchen lamp. Cost, nothing just 35 minutes of my time. Yay !!

Craft recycled container: I try and make use of what I can recycle to store my craft items.  This container is a little mustard container that I use to put my Christmas buttons in.  Inexpensive and pretty. It'll inspire you when you have pretty containers to store items in.

I had this miniature wire framed pram approx 2 inches tall and 2 1/2 wide.  I decided to put a baby paper doll inside complete with blankets and pillows. This is a gift for my 7 yr old   Grandaughter.  I will pin the little girl one as well. Excuse me as new today to pinning.  Season's Greetings & Peace

File box - I used embellishments, ribbon and brads to make the index cards for the file box to separate the sections.  Just loved doing it. Sometimes I think to myself it looks a bit amateurish but then I think.... nah! it's great, it's home made and what's wrong with that if I love it and find fun using it. lol

I made these for my Grandaughter Ashleigh Jewel.  A book mark to encourage her to keep reading, a pencil box to store her pencils and to encourage her to write down her thoughts and the Serenity Prayer for wisdom.
