Hooley dooley! I am learning so much about myself each day. The lesson lately is that my brain seems not to handle stress. I get this adrenalin thing happening, can't sleep and oh dear - very cranky. Poor Mr J. Here's praying the next couple of months will be smooth! The house should be online next week.
On a practical note I discovered a decoupage trick. I was having problems with bubbles in my work. Drying the item in the direct sunlight seems to allow the paper to shrink back a little and bubbles disappear. I had to cover a disaster up with some fabric. It looks very cute now - and no-one would know! This is the disaster before fabric.
I upcycled the cutest little telephone table I picked up during a fleeting visit to my hometown. I just can't seem to do black though. Out came the can paint, some decoupage and a re-upholster! Voila - the Little Red Riding Hood setee...
Here is a snapshot of last nights first bbq with the paving finished. Lots of fun - one glass of red too much for me though! xo
