Summer Days…..

How I spend a summer day in July…

A planning morning at my local cafe, mainly to people watch as I managed to get a table by the window.

I am adding my creative touch in between the pages of my Filofax.

Staedler’s watercolour pencils are my favourite drawing / painting tools at moment.

Doodling a few flowers, then a few brushstrokes with water…

Something old is new again….

This well loved red Domino was started to look a bit on the tatty side.

I read few blog posts from Filofaxers who dyed or painted their planners.

So I rolled up my sleeves and began the makeover.

I took some fine sandpaper and lightly sanded the surface.

I used a water based adhesive to prime the surface.

Then applied a coat of acryluc paint inĀ  burnt umber and topped with a coat of black.

I finished it off with two coast of varnish and added a few stickers.

Now, do I move my knitting Filofax to this Domino….

Decorating for Canada Day…

I’m finally getting around to showing off my amazing wreath!

For Canada Day I have a very special wreath on my front door.

image

Made by a group of my knitterly/crafty friends for my birthday earlier this year. The colours remind me of the Canadian flag.

The creative stitching is lovely. …

Love the detail….
