Belles needs a new grown up look for her bedroom and as her carpet is fairly decent (ie too much to replace!) I have had to configure a colour scheme based around the colour of her carpet, which is Cerise. Hopefully by adding more colours in to her room will take away all the current pink overload whilst injecting a bit of teenager-dom into it. We have come up with cerise, teal and perhaps a splash of lime as a scheme. But then came the headache of finding bedding to match. Thankfully I have some eagle eyed buddies on facebook and it came down to hunting in Next.
AM I GLAD I DID COS THEY HAVE POLKA DOT SHEETING!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand all in the colours we want too, plus a double quilt cover by the zany Zandra Rhodes.
Im dead chuffed.
We just need to find curtains now but I might buy in plain fabric and add some applique to give them a bit of "something". Sadly I do NOT have the time this month to start her room but come the second week in Feb, Ill be firing on all cylinders to transform this kiddo's bedroom into something of teenage acceptability. Huzzah!
I have (kind of) finally solved the dilemma of night time project picture taking. We all love a pictures taken in natch daylight but during the winter, there is bugger all light as it is. This called for desperate measures. I wanted a little area in my craft room to take pics without have to get a full set of studio lights and a great hoyking photography tent out so I devised a little lighting area using two lamps (£3 each from Asda) and a background of , well.....any of my card or patterned papers - thus providing a bit of versatility.
I am over the moon with my little invention. Hardly glamorous but for £6, I ain't complaining.
These cards were made for a Crafts Beautiful commission based on boys cards whilst using a collection kit. I love that they give me those kind of commissions - it takes the headache of choosing from a million different things. The kits just have everything you need in them bar ribbon. I got the kit from Sarahs Cards - Its fab for boys .
I have a date with the Cullens right now with a side order of Jacob xx
