There's something a little crafty about my thrifting this week.
Firstly there was this stool which I got for a steal and did a little number on. Take a peek - it's come up pretty neat I think.
Then, after dropping Ruby off at nursery this morning, I took my customary stroll down to the charity shop. The lady who works on a Monday had very kindly brought in a load of information and contacts for me for local craft fairs - we'd been chatting the previous week.
Browsing the book shelves, I spotted some great crafting books for Ruby. Being stuck in watching the torrential rain for the past fortnight, I'm running pretty dry on ideas and inspiration, so these are very welcome.
Firstly, this great book on T-Shirt design, which will be perfect for future DYLON projects.
It covers all kinds of methods from potato printing to using templates.
Then I spotted a couple more Usbourne Activities books.
Fairy Cooking and Fairy Things to Make and Do.
Tell me, what girl wouldn't want to try some Fairy Fudge or Pink Swirly Biscuits?
The other book is full of tutorials on how to make essential fairy accessories- wand; tiara and wings, as well as loads of ideas for paintings, decorations and garlands.
Finally, I found this totally unused Marbling Craft Kit.
I can't wait to have a go with this. As well as all the ink and equipment, it comes with card blanks and blank pillow boxes. This kit costs around £15, but I got it for £2.49. Yay!
Plenty to keep us busy for a while.
