Off the Page....

I am on holidays at the moment, so i decided to dive in to my ever flowing stash and drag out some off the page items that were getting dusty. I decided to decorate the Kaiser bird cage first. I am really happy with the way that it turned out, now i need to buy a hook so that i can put it on my wall.
I bought this Kaiser shelf system ages ago, i just had to have it and I have never done anything with it. My sister asked me to make something for Eve for Christmas,so i decided to make and decorate the storage system so that she could put all her hair ties in. As Brooke has decorated Eve's room in red and she also loves owls i have incorprated these 2 elements in.. I hope she likes it..
I have a cupboard full of other OTP items, so its my goal to complete alot of these. My next project is to decorate a 7 Gypsies printerd tray that I have had in my stash for over 2 years.

I have put the bird cage on my wall and it looks great.

My sister was rapt when i gave her this storage system, she is going to use it to put all Eve's hair clips/ ties etc..

Cheryll's Santa Swap

I have been involved in a Santa swap since June, each month you had to send 2 gifts to your nominated person, I had Tracee sent me some amazing things.
I love Babushkas, and she made me the most amazing Babushka tabble runner and she sent me a pattern to make some Babushka lavender ladies. Tracee also, made me the most gorgeous Christmas Angel cushion {my kids have tried to pinch it already}. Tracee also sent me a gorgeous necklace with owls on it {i also like owls}. Tracee sent me 2 great crafty books, i cant wait to make somethings out of it whilst I am on holidays. I also recieved a cute stickynote book, a floral bookmark, a gorgeous clock with a bir clock that is going up in my scrap room. I also was lucky enough to also get some yummy smelling soaps, some funky green t-towels {my favourite colour} and I also got the most gorgeous angel that will be coming to work with me after the holidays..
i was trully spoilt by Traccee and i want to thank Cheryll mfor running this amazing swap, check out my goodies
