My friend Lisa who I met many years ago over the Net has just published her first book so I was delighted to receive a preview copy and have been busy making things from it.  I have got a shed full of craft stash with items that I pick up thinking that would look really good but it seems to turn into a mountain of stuff that I never get around to making!! One such item was a wooden bird reduced to 50p last Christmas!! I decided to fill a box with stuff from my stash mountain and actually get around to making something!!  The book is very good for beginners or for those who only have a little bit of time in their hectic day but want to be creative.  The chapters cover a variety of craft such as needle felting on old jumpers, quick card making ideas, using up beads for wind chimes etc.   I decided to follow the clear instructions on using up old rub ons to alter this wooden bird and the project took me less than half an hour but I was really pleased with the result and it is ideal for the ATCs that I made yesterday from the chapter on using up paint backgrounds.

  1. I am gathering so many useful ideas on this blog hop! I want to assemble my stash of cigar boxes with random supplies from my STASH for my library S.M.A.R.T. (Second Monday Art Recycle Trash) group; I just don’t know whether the box or the journal to put in the box should be the first project of 2015. What do you think?

  2. Oh my goodness, I love your birdies! What a fantastic idea, using up your stash of rubons. Love it and the birds really turned out so cute!! Thanks for the darling idea.
