New Memo Boards in Stock

I have finally got round to listing my new memo boards on my Etsy shop, woohoo!! It's been one of those time consuming jobs that I've been putting off...I don't know why cos I want to sell them but they won't sell unless I list them!

Anyway, pop over to my Etsy shop and take a look. Not only are there the 7 brand new memo board designs, there are also several other delightful items available to purchase. Now is the time to get thinking about Christmas presents, people!!

And just to get you even more into the early Christmas shopping mode, you can get 15% off any purchase by using promo code 15OFF until 30th September!  Simply enter the code at the checkout to get your discount.

This is my favourite of the new additions:

Finished WIP: Crochet Elephant

A couple of weeks ago I managed to finish the crochet elephant I was making for Poppet. It turned out to be a whole lot bigger than I expected it to but I love it! We've called her Rosie.

Here's a pictorial 'making of'.

If you would like the pattern, you can find it here

Lampshade spruce up

We are finally nearing the end of Project Nursery, and boy has it been a long process! I won't bore you with the details, but suffice to say, it has involved a lot of 'argh when is this going to end' moments. Today I want to show off my spruced up lampshade.

The nursery is pink and white and so I took a plain boring white lampshade from Ikea (where else?!) and got myself some trimmings which I glued on with the glue gun. You gotta love a glue gun, it's great for everything!

Here's how the lampshade looks now it's hanging in the nursery.

Pink ric rac, white ric rac and some mini pink pom pom trim.

Table makeover

We recently bought a new arm chair for the living room and after having it for a while, I decided we needed a wee table to go with it so that we had somewhere to put a drink, tv remote etc. Mr PC was going to build one from some mahogany he got from Freecyle (love free stuff!) but as he's had so many other projects on his plate this summer we decided to just buy one. A trip to Ikea was in order! We bought this cheap and cheerful table for a spiffy £7! 
NESNA Bedside table IKEA Bamboo, a hardwearing natural material. 
We didn't like the glass top or the slats, so Mr PC used some plywood to replace them with. Then I got to do some wood staining! Normally I'm not 'allowed' to do jobs like these because he prefers to do them and thinks himself an expert (which he kinda is, but don't tell him I said so), but in the interest of having the table asap, I got the brush out and got stuck in!

Whilst I liked the table once it was stained, there was something missing...

...a bit of granny action! I quickly whipped up a granny square to cover the top and made it just long enough to hang over the edge of the table top. I weaved in some elastic to make it nice and snug and hey presto, and splendid new table which cost a mere £7!!

 The new arm chair is super comfy and has become a bit of a handmade nook which I just love!
