Well ladies sorry I've been AWOL, but I have been working through my list of things to do.
Besides the things I planned there have been unplanned things too like a broken oven and dishwasher on the same day! And an impromptu trip into work!!
Anyhoo, I have been able to tick some stuff off my list, I did finish my coffee table re-vamp,
Before, nasty orange pine:
and after, shabby cream legs with natural waxed top.
Poor hubby stood looking horrified after I spent 5 hours sanding and waxing and painting to get the sander out again and take bits back off!
I am really pleased with it and it's bigger than my last coffee table which gives me loads of room to spread my crafting crap out all over it! I did toy with the idea of Farrow & Ball Dimity, but all my other woodwork is Crown Period Eggshell Parsonage Cream, so I went with that.
I also wanted to try making wax melts. Lovely Laalaa put me onto the idea and I love them, they smell divine, this little pile are lemon meringue pie!
Another thing I managed to tick off my list was to open my Folksy shop. That was a greater task than I had anticipated. Digging through my stash, photos, descriptions etc. it took many, many hours but I have listed a lot of my stuff. I was amazed at what I found. As I have made things through the year I have boxed them away for gifts and such and found that there was still a plethora of things I have made, hence Folksy. I still have lots more to add and will continue to fill it up.
Pop over and let me know what you think.
Anyhoo I must dash and dust off my best hat for the wedding tomorrow!
I wonder what her frock will be like?
