Sharpie Transformation 2

Buy an ordinary plastic toy from the pound shop (if they're still in business... let's hope)

In this case it was a tiny football goal set with three cones (about 25cms high) and a little soft ball (not needed for this as its not football related).
Separate the cones

And decorate with Sharpies. 

I made these so my husband could place them outside his Arty-Man-Cave and could rotate the last one to indicate what activity was happening within:

Sharpie Transformations

I'm in love with Sharpies!

I've had some for years but never really known what to do with them, so now I've started experimenting with them.

Experiment 1
A packet of those plastic ice cubes from the pound shop...

then Sharpie them up!

With every cube a different face.

Eventually I took the water out as they were too heavy to stay stacked properly, then used double sided tape to keep them stacked.

Stay tuned for more experiments with a loaded Sharpie!

Missing the veg patch

Sorry for the delay... Spring sprang, the garden went wild and someone had to tame the jungle!

Husband had a huge gorgeous art shed installed on my veg patch two years ago, which i didn't think I'd miss... but I did.

So a friend with strong muscles came over and helped dig these three patches for me to plant

Yes I know they look rather like three graves but I promise you there are no bodies beneath... just veg seeds.

They have been planted since and I'll let you know how they are getting on as they grow!

Bluebells Don't Have to be Blue!

Here are some of the Bluebells we had in our garden this year...

Traditional blue (not totally traditional as these are the Spanish type that are sweeping the country, rather than the smaller native type, but still lovely!),

White (clump forming rather that little black seed-balls going everywhere to take over the world like the Spanish ones)

and pretty in pink.

All gone now and the remaining leaves turning to slippery mush and giving an annoying hiding place to the slugs and snails that are out to ravish my garden!

Catch up Bujo pages

Can't t remember... did I show you these?

That's my month of February in pictures. 

And my petals recording what I crafted in March.

April Bujo pages

I think I forgot to show you these, so here are some other April Bujo pages before I move through the rest of May and into June!

In fact I think I might have a couple of  March and Feb pages left over.
