Hey Crafters,

I hope this post finds you well and happy and hopefully you have got some free time to do some crafting, i believe it is school holidays at the mo, how about painting with the kids, i have come across a fantastic site, via a friend of mine on the Facebook group that i run under a Paint Fusion guise, namely 'Crafty Fusioneers', anyone can ask to join it is an open group!!The lady in question is called Margaret (thankyou again Margaret) and she pointed out to me a website called Crafty Crocodiles, if you wanna visit them, CLICK HERE. They sell anything and everything in wood and ceramic that you and your children can paint or decorate and be proud of, go on, get the kids crafting in a loving family bonding environment!!! they even sell eggcups and cups to decorate so the kiddies can do their own ceramics and then write their name on with special pens that don't need fixing in an oven!! I so wish there had been something like this when our boys were growing up! Oh and their deliveries are phenomenal, within 48hrs in most cases and some have been 24hrs!!!
Anyway, i digress, the following piece of work is half of a box i am making for my lovely mum, and it is the lid, I intend on finishing the actual box this evening as it only needs painting and a crackle effect added, anyway, i hope you like what i have done, have a lovely day and thanks for taking an interest!!!

Hugs Vick xxxx

  2. ooh Vick that's gorgeous, glad to hear you've been well enough to do some painting and wow what fab results. I ordered some things for painting from Crafty Crocodiles after seeing the recommendation on the FB Group and was very impressed that the order arrived within 24 hours. Thanks for the lovely comments you left on my blog - I'm very new to blogging and not quite sure what i'm doing yet but have lots of pictures to put on there when I get a chance!!!

  3. Hi Vick.
    How lovely to see how your boxes are coming along. I love your poppies, the depth of colour is brilliant. I still!!!!! need to work on mine.
    Your Mum is going to be delighted with her gift.
    My DD loves painting when I do and she's really getting on well with it.
    Hope all is good with you and yours.
