Competition on our fb page

Hello my lovers its been too long, I've been a bit busy being  mum of 3 and doing all sorts of crafty things, and now that I look back I see thta its definitely been ages since I last posted in here, but if you really are with me you'ld ee that I've been on my FB pag nearly every day making updates posting pics etc. what I mean with all of this is go to my fb page like the page and while your at it why not enter our competition that ends at midnight today .

For now I'll leave you with a few links of a few tutorials that you may find helpful this Christmas season.

I know they are not mine but I dont see the point to do something that someone already did :) plus this way I help other kind souls to get some views ...

Well enough chatting hey,
I use tissue paper pom- poms all the time and for every possible occasion you may think off, well except funerals of course . I would think that red and white ones differing in size would make a wonderful Christmas decor don't you??

love wreaths no better way to tell the world your setting up for christmas and that you love it as well.

Table center piece an essential at any festive table.

Hope you find some inspiration from these videos

All together for Charity

Hello everyone,

 I've been a busy bee lately this school summer holidays are giving me a lot to do , but not even enough to do for the kids the result has been some pretty bored children and a lot of tantrums.

 About this time last week I made a decision to make some items for a charity that would be selected by all of you.

 The items soon to be donated will be some cake stencil borders some cake stencils for cup cakes, 2 fabric dolls 2 fabric teddies 1 fabric bunny, 2 sets of cards and envelopes ( 5 cards+ envelopes+gift tags ) all in an handmade box; Might not be much but hopefully it will help to raise some funds for the ones in need.

 What I ask of you,, all of you who read this post is to go to our facebook page and choose one charity by leaving a comment with the name of the charity you choose.

When all the items I mentioned above are ready I'll post the pictures and I 'll also take a photo of me with the shop attendant of the lucky charity.

Fabric Dolls Experience

 Hello my wackys how have you all been,

 Its been a busy week for me, and I'm definitely glad its the weekend , shame its Sunday already. So this past week I had 2 birthday parties to take my kids to and you might think its all good and easy but I don't quite find it that way, its summer school holidays now and the girls are home all day everyday, the result is a lot of arguing like " live your sister alone" - "don't do that"- " you gonna hurt yourselves"- bla bla bla can you  see yourself in this picture?!!   There's  moments were we all are happy making a mess, playing board games, baking, dancing to music on TV, but it doesn't stop being challenging to cope with 2 little girls which are 6 and 3 years old and a baby who's 3 months old... sometimes I think I'm loosing my sanity lolol.

Sometimes I recon I like to test my limits you see with all the house work kids cooking etc. I like crafting and having 2 b-day parties coming would be the perfect time for me to try and make something new, which in my case was fabric dolls; I didn't realise how hard it would be to actually finish the projects on time for the birthdays and do everything a mum has to do including putting the baby to sleep ... Do you got the idea!?

Basically this dolls took me a hole day from start to finish, however in a normal day with kids in school and baby possibly in the nursery I recon it would take me only 2 hours, anyway they got done in the end and I'm very happy with the end result, they were my first 2  fabric dolls ever but I have a feeling there's more coming on.

What do you think?!! Do you like making stuff as well why not share some pictures with all of us :)

See you soon my wackys xxxxxxxxx

Crafty button box frame

Hello my lovers,

Well here we are one more monday evening and I finally have some time in my hands to share a crafty HOW TO post with you;

 Today's how to is fairly simple awfully easy but not everyone thinks about it.... and now that the summer school holidays are almost here you can even do it with your wee (little) ones :), all you need is a box frame, a lot of buttons, some felt but tha'ts actually optional and some patterned paper, hot glue or multi purpose fabric glue like fabritac for example... + you'll need to decide on wkat you want your picture to be and if you want to paint the frame or not ;) EASY !!!!!!!!!!

How To:

1st paint the frame and let it dry

2nd cut a felt shape ( or make the drawing directly on the patterned paper)

3rd glue the buttons onto the shape and let it dry.

4th place the shape onto the chosen patterned paper and then on the frame.

That's it really, could it be any easier?!!!

I would love to see what you've done so feel free to share on our facebook page Lili's handmade crafts.

see you all soon xxxxxxxxxxxx
