About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

Heart Sign

Working on a few crafts at the moment all works in progress, but this one is done - my first decorated heart.
I found a quote I liked, painted a wooden heart and then drafted the wording out onto the heart.
I originally wanted all button text, but there was too much text, then I tried to add buttons to just the first letter in each line, but I didn't have enough little buttons - so I used some crystals!


I then painted the rest of the text, the only issue I found was it wasn't so easy to rub out the pencil marks and cover up with paint (hence some 'chunky' letters to try and cover the marks), so the next one I try I think I'll go in free hand to paint the text!

I added a few butterflies which I might add some colour to at a later date, but for now I'll see how I like it hanging on the newly decorated wall!
