NEC Hobby Craft Show - 24th March 2012

We had been waiting 3 months and the day finally arrived for the ICF Hobbycraft Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Sister and Sister-in-law (Clare & Liz) arrived as the doors opened at 9.30am. We enjoyed browsing the stalls, having a giggle and catching up with our news.

Enjoying a Coffee

Off we go Clare, Liz and (Neice) Grace

Lots and lots of People

Chekcking out the Stands.

We went home via the Beefeater Restaurant for a well deserved tea. 

After all this new Inspiration, all I need now is a little bit of time to finish off some of my projects and start some new ones. Thanks for a good day Liz & Clare.

Button Heart Picture

9th March 2012 - Button Picture Frame

I've recently joined pinterest, and saw this lovely button heart picture on .

I knew my mum had stored a few buttons....

These buttons have been collected by my mum and gran over many years and it was great sorting through them. Clare (my little sister) decided to join me making our own craft pictures and we are really pleased with our results...

My finished picture (next to a photo of mum) can be seen here. It's not the best photo in the world but I am so pleased that I wanted to share my finished picture.

After moving the picture around a little I have decided to swap the large black button on the right  as I didn't feel it was balanced in the picture. Here's my final picture.

The buttons are very shiny and glossy, so I need to find a wall where the light can reflect in the buttons.

This is Clare's picture.

Every time I look at these pictures it makes me smile and brings me happy memories of mum!
