Handmade Monday 61

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all enjoying a nice Easter break and have not eaten too much chocolate (not sure how much is too much though). Although I've had a nice week with the children, we've not been able to go anywhere as my car went in for its MOT and unfortunately needed a few things repairing. This wouldn't have been too bad, but one of the parts it needs, apart from costing an arm and a leg, is also not stocked in this country and can take upto 2 weeks to get. So I am without a car for the foreseeable future. Luckily I was able to use my hubby's car for a craft fair on Saturday, but its only small so had to take the back seat out completely in order to fit all my stuff in.

My daughter came with me as it was a local fair and my friend who usually comes with me drove up in her own car.


I have been having a go at decoupage this week, I love trying out new techniques.


These are done with tissue napkins.


This one has a tissue top and then handpainted rose buds on the sides.


I also painted some wooden cupcake shapes and made them into fridge magnets


I'm out this afternoon visiting my mum and dad. They've got my sis in law, daughters and great niece coming round for a visit, so we can have a nice family get together.
I'll be checking out all the other participants to Handmade Monday later this evening.
Thanks for looking
Hugs Sue x

Oh I love your stall, just the type of display that would attract me to venture over and browse. Your products are beautiful

Sorry about your car cannot live with them, cannot live without and so expensive not to mention the fuel costs and as mine drinks fuel at 28mpg, know where you are coming from.

Your stall looks lovely, and the decoupage boxes are so pretty. Good luck with the car. We thought one of ours had died the other week and we panicking as to where we could find the money for a new one - we live in the middle of nowhere and can't manage without them.

Wow the stall looks really great. The boxes are lovely and you have made a beautiful job of them. The reason I am travelling by bike now is the MOT costs from my car - feel your pain! Mich x

Your stall looks brilliant. I tried decoupage with tissue paper and whilst I loved doing it mine didn't turn out half as good as yours! Hope the car gets mended soon!

Oooohhh, I love your decoupage - very pretty. Your stall looks lovely, very attractive and lots of colour. Grim news about your car - I dread MOT time. fingers crossed the part doesn't take as long as two weeks to arrive. Hope you have a good week.
