I'm Still Here

Things have been very quiet recently.  But I am getting make into the crafty groove!!!!

Christmas is not so far away and it always inspires a bit of creativity.  How will you get creative this Christmas? Are you going to make you own decorations, make your own gifts, wrapping paper, gift tags?  Have you tried Upcycling?

"Upcycling" is the latest craze and can be super addictive, why not try it out for yourself.  Take something old and un-used and re-invent it into something truly unique.

Here are some Upcycled ideas:

Suitcase coffee tables - storage included
Colouring pencil necklace

Umbrella Skirt
Soft Drink Bottle Vertical Garden

Cutlery Key or Coat Hooks
Lego Lamp

I have also found this amazing blog called "How about Orange". There are some many amazing ideas on here with heaps of links to some free downloads.  What I love about this blog is that it has some many little projects which are just great for filling in a quiet weekend.

I'll post some of my Christmasy Creations as they come.
