Hope you are all well? It's Sunday and I'm having a lazy day, well lazy weekend. I've got another UTI and its put me on my arse! (Excuse the pun!) I have been so busy the last week getting our room decorated and sorting the house/garden before mum came home. She went to Blackpool with grandad. They had a great time.
I have been making loads of room decor to save money and also add my own personal touch to the room. We have spent a lot of money on furniture so I decided to make the wall decorations. Not a lot of disabled tips but a few shortcuts.
I bought papier mâché letters from hobbycraft. I got 'C & P' and decorated them with decoupage papers and stuck buttons all over the front of them. What do you think?
I'm also loving my new shelves from eBay! £30! What a steal! I'm getting a second one. It has all my nicknacks and jewellery in it. Going to put 'B & E' on top of the second one. Then my family letters will be complete. Although a small tip, the P is top heavy so we had to glue it with super glue. It was a pain but looks beautiful now.
I also had a collage made for me and framed it with a clip frame and I made our wedding collage and used my new Polaroid die! A lot cheaper making my own than buying a camera and film all the time. I think it's nicer because you can use patterned paper instead of white borders all the time.
I know the actual photos are blurry but you can see I used loads of Polaroids on the top and mounted the other photos on patterned paper with the whole thing on a dark purple piece of card.
