Hi all, hope you are having a lovely weekend.
I have been sorting out a couple of drawers in my craft room.
Probably will regret it, as I won't remember where I have moved stuff to!
Most drawers are sort of labelled!
Tomorrow, I have my Granddaughter for the day and
Tuesday I have my Grandson.
Half term holidays. So looking forward to a couple of fun days.
My Granddaughter has to make a Victorian item for school, as homework.
So we are going to make a clock like this one but with Victorian decoration.
For this one, I used a great template from House on Zandra.
It is very easy to put together.
It was for a decorative use only but I wanted to make a working one.
I had to alter parts of the middle section, to cover the clock movement.
Only because I didn't want to see them!
On the one we are making tomorrow,
I will make the cover a bit better than this one.
As I will completely change the middle section.
The Decorations on the outside are made with paper clay.
The window in the clock front has acetate in,
so you can see the decoration inside.
The paper at the back was free from an old magazine.
The daisy flowers are from Artista paper clay, which I Bought at The Craft Barn.
The Bunny and wooden flowers are from Art Cuts.
I really enjoyed making this clock and looking forward to
doing another tomorrow.
Now I have worked out how to modify the template!
Just to update you on my EBosser. I spoke to a lovely lady at Create and Craft Customer Service.
She has arranged for it to be collected from me on Wednesday.
As the plates are sticking out the front, I had to find a suitable box to put it in.
My hubby went to a pet shop nearby, Pets At Home.
They were very helpful and unpacked
a Gerbil Hotel Cage and gave him the box!! A perfect fit!!
I am now going to do the dreaded ironing!! Not my favourite job!
Thanks for stopping by. I love visiting your blogs and
I always leave a message.
So reading your lovely comments, gives me a lift too.
It's always nice to see who has been.
It's just a shame that all visitors don't take the time to just even say Hi!
We always will return the compliment.
It's a great way to meet new crafting friends too.
