Altered Bottle

Morning everyone, 

I have been busy crafting all morning today and have loved every minute of it - I was supposed to be tidying my craft room but I kind of got side tracked when I found a little bag of birds :) As some of you know I LOVE BIRDS, I can time waste just sitting watching them for hours. 

So I have been hording this bottle along with quite a few more but ssshhhh -

And here it is

I have used Lost and Found paper stack from My minds eye, along with lots of different flowers, beads, pearls, blings, ribbon, laces and the fabulous brooch that I also had been hoarding !! then I found the bag of little birds, and then I found the nests that I brought from the works years ago (see this is why i have started a haul page, I cant remember diddly squat )

Challenges I would like to enter this into are 

Whilst I have all the mess out still, I might just do another bottle, well dont want this one to be lonely do i :) 

Have a good day

A Cameo Card

Evening all

I am still trying to learn with the blogger thingy, does anyone know the answer to this question ?

If I leave a comment on blogger or google+ does it automatically do it to the other one ? or do you have to go to both and leave comments ?

Anyway, thats my little question for today - for those that asked about Mali ( my horsey) being moved, here is a little piccie of me hacking yesterday :)

and here is my effort for today 

I have used three different papers and layered them up, added the image, popped on some white flowers and then some caps, and added the letters. 

The challenges I would like to enter this into are 

Off to wander around blogger land now as I have not been able to today

Altered Bird House for sping challenges

Hello Bloggie Friends

I was playing with my blog to try and make it look more interesting for you !! HA HA that was a joke !! after trying to get the blog list thingy up, I gave up, i ended up with loads of them down the side of my blog and not a single blog to follow !! nothing !! nothing at all to follow !! ((gave up quickly)) 

So I decided to craft as I can really cock that up can I ? or can I !! 

Any how, I brought this little birdie house along with MORE washie tapes today ((I think I am a bit of a hoarder of these, as I have never used a single inch of them )) so this is what it looked like 

this is now 

I painted it with blue acrylic paints and used the crackle paints again, added some flowers, beads and silver thingys and a little birdie. 

I have seen lots of challenges around with the theme of Spring, so with that in mind, I would like to enter this into the following challenges - challenge is Things with wings 

And thats me done for today, I will pop around the new crafty friends blogs later this evening, thank you to everyone who has supported me, Im sorry Im such a pain in the bum, but I will get and stop asking questions ((you hope))

Altered Shoe

Hi everyone, 

I have been a busy bumble bee today and cracked on with a shoe (my little doggie had chewed it) I didnt want to chuck it away and kept it.  

Today it has been transformed from this 

to this 

What do you think ? I used americana Decor chalk paint and distress paint on it, added lots of feathers, flowers, butterflys, leaves and card candy.  Im chuffed with it. 

I would like to put it into the challenges below - Challenge is Recycle and why - I loved these shoes and did not want to just chuck them away - Challenge is Not a card - - Challenge is use Chalk, not sure if this counts or not, I am sure they will let me know - Challenge is Shoes :) - challenge is Shoes :) - challenge is Anything goes - Anything Goes 

Phew !! so there goes my first challenge entry on my first ever blog !! Feeling rather chuffed with myself.  I even got a photo on the side bar, but that was a bit hit and miss !!  Off for a cuppa now 

bye bye

So Ive started a blog ......

well hello and welcome to my first ever post !!

Intro first I suppose, My name is Jac, Im a self confessed Pinterest addict !!

I have a wee little one and I will refer to her as the pest for future reference as she is a pest !!

I have been fiddling and farting around with blogger for a while now and wanting to take part in all the challenges around, decided it WAS TIME !!

So I made the blog, that bit was easy.  Making a header !! well that took forever and a day and then when i finally found out how to put it on it was MASSIVE and in the corner ?? what the f&*k is that about ? so I went to my trusted friend Google :) and found this this is so idiot proof even i could follow it and bingo i have a header in the right place and size :)

then back to good ole google and found this so much information here, which then lead me to adding my first widget this was easy to do as well, just fill in your information and it adds it to your blog for you, I like things like this lol

I know my blog is empty at the mo, but I will get there and I will now start showing all the crafty bits I make, the good the bad and the ugly

I hope you come back and let me know how im doing, any comments good or bad I will take on the chin

Have a great evening
