On my desk


Repurposing some cardboard boxes into a nursery for all Barbies Babies, and a time out pink free room for Ken to chill out in!!
Using up some old papers & some of the many stickers that I never use. I'm trying to be a better Mummy & spend more time with DD (9) before she's too grown up.
Spending an hour or so most afternoons creating together, this paddle pop building is really testing my building abilities, inventions in progress are
Barbie baby change table
Baby cot to go into the pink nursery because Barbie only has girls!!!!

On my desk


Here's what I started with & ended up with, I used
An old canvas
Texture paste
Green, blue, purple, pink & yellow spray on paint
2 paint templates

I covered my pre used canvas with a coat of texture paint, let it dry & randomly spray painted here & there until I felt that it was a good coverage. Let it all dry, then put the stencils over it & dabbed plain paint over it, after it dried I painted over the top again with a paintbrush then I put some liquid glitter on for dimension , I plan to spray it with glossy varnish so that I can easily wipe any future dust off.

Valentine Family Pic's

Here we are,  we decided to go out for dinner as it was the last time that our family would all be together for ages. Had the tripod out for a few photos, which caused
 much groaning & moaning from the Kids!!! Our dinner was also a disaster too as we had to wait 2 hours for our cold meal. But time together is what matters.
