Altering It...

... Aha! How come I am here and not laying, supine on the sofa, groaning for sympathy after my ordeal yesterday??? Well... truth is, it is actually Thursday and I am scheduling this post to coincide with my latest Tutorial for Gingersnap Creations.. which is all about my favest subject... noooo, not that... Altered ART!!!

I did a couple of pieces for my Tutorial, showing how to make something ancient and a bit shabby into something pretty - this spoon infact:




And then I made a Trinket Box which started life as a plain box from QD stores. Now, answering Q's from several of you lovely peeps... QD is a shop that sells just about everything from crockery to garden supplies, sweeties to home furnishing... and it is really cheap too.. which is fab for me cos I love their wooden stuff to alter... This box is for the latest lot of Idea-ology that has come out, my old Idea-ology box hasn't got enough compartments!




All the details on how to make these pieces can be found on the GINGERSNAPS blog... please pop by and tell me what you think... in the meantime.. have a fab day... I am hoping that I will be ok for making the Sunday Stamper tomorrow! TTFN

Love these Hels, especially the spoon. How gorgeous is that?!?

Really just wanted to say that I hope you are not suffering too much (not at all being a bit too much to hope for I suppose) now that your ordeal is over. I've been away for a couple of days but I did keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hugs
