The Little Bird House that Wasn't

Another little thing I made while I was away.

After a long time looking for a birdhouse to alter and coming up with nothing I decided to make my own, so the hunt for something to make it out of started. At first I was planing of doing it with balsa wood but then thought better of it. Then while I was at the model shop I found some sort of polystyrene sheets with a hard coating of some sort. perfect!!

Little bird house all cut out ready to be covered.

Front view.

Another side view.

So as you can see my search for a bird house was kind a waste of time cos after all that I covered the holes and made it in to just a little My Mum like this little houes so much she has asked me to make her one too, so keep an eye out for that one day soon.

Altered Clipboards

Well while I was away from the world of scraping and bloging my little boy Elliott had his 5th birthday and so begins the new adventure of school, I desided to make his daycare teaches a parting gift...These ladies have been a big part of life for 2 1/2 years and it was very sad for everyone to see him off to school.

Sorry to anyone that reads my blog but I haven't been very well for a couple of months and I took a break from crafting in a big way, I was only making stuff to sell for a long time and wasn't really selling much so didn't really get a lot

But its a new year and with it comes new ideas and a fresh approach to the world, all tho I can not commit to being back fully I hope to be back blogging and crafting a lot more than I was!!

And some good news too, I am going to be published!!! WOOHOO!!!

My friend Tracy convinced me to submit a LO to up2scrap mag (NZ scrap booking mag) and it made it in....I am still in shock a little bit and i still cant post the LO anywhere online but look out for it in May!!

And also its my wedding anniversary today! 4 awesome years!! love you hun

So thats all for now I will be back real soon to show what I have been up to the last few months!
