Sorry it has been a while since my last post. I have had ideas for posts in the last few weeks but unfortunately I have been a little busy with more car troubles and a hectic diary.
If you have followed me on Twitter (@MeganC101) you will see that I have recently discovered Pinterest which is very useful for someone who is in desperate need of decorating ideas for her new flat. Pinterest allows users to post pictures to a board to give themselves ideas or share with others. I would like to say I have added a few aspirational pictures here and there.
I have dyed my hair again but still not to the desired shade of purple so next time I am going to bite the bullet and bleach it. Wish me luck.
Also, the Eurovision 2013 countdown is on as many countries have now announced their entries Expect a Eurovision prediction post in the coming weeks.
Yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK. Many countries celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May but in the UK it is always the second Sunday of March. Reverting back to my childhood when I used to make my mum gifts on this day, I decided to create a card for her and bake some ‘spring’ cupcakes (pictured above).
I went to a craft fair two weeks ago which was a great opportunity to explore what was out there. Luckily there were loads of papercraft stalls, the level I think I would like to stay on for now. I managed to get a lot of cheap starter packs to get me going, with odd bits of material from the bargain bins. This gave me plenty to work with.
I made the border by gluing a blue ribbon around the card and placed a pretty piece of white see-through ribbon over the top.
Then I decided to challenge to myself my gluing a bit of pale blue tulle (a bit at a time) to the centre of the card to form a circle tulle border under my paper doily – which I glued on top. I finished with a border of plastic stick-on pearls.
Using the outer edge of the doily, I made a border for the message. Just wish I had a nicer pen to write with.
