Glitter and Gems


This months challenge for me is that I haven't been able to do any crafting as the renovations in my house have taken over my room (again) so I am pleased that I did a few challenges ahead!

This month Lavinia's challenge is Glitter and Gems  - oh so hard with all those fab stamps eh?! See the side bar on the left for all the details of how to enter, you don't even need a blog!

I decided to do something pretty and something practical, a heart and a coffee jar.  I buy refills for the coffee and decided that the jar I put it in was far too boring.  I did mask off a strip down the sides so you can still see how much coffee you have left!

My photography skills do leave a lot to be desired, but The flowers on the jar are really sparkly as I dropped glitter onto the glaze.

Here I went back to my usual subtle colours and had hours of fun colouring in the edges of the flowers in a silver glitter pen!

Oh and since last month we have a new addition to the family!

My youngest son went off to study Medicine at UCL so I replaced him with a puppy :) his name is Bobby and he is a delight!

Love to everyone

Melissa xx
