Butterfly Wishes Joseph’s Coat Technique

This is an old technique, but brand new to me. I saw Bruno Bertucci doing this and I had to try it. You can see his video here . I had great fun, but got very messy 😆

What is your favourite technique? Do you love a messy Technique or hate it? For me as a mum of five (eldest is 28 and youngest is 13), Grandma of two littles ones, aged 5 and almost 3 and a Rainbow Guider (Youngest members of Girlguiding UK at 5-7 year olds), mess comes with the territory. I have always enjoyed messy crafts and projects, but my husband who is autistic hates mess. It’s a miracle we have been married for 25 years 😆

Until next time, happy crafting

Butterfly Birthday

How are you all doing in these strange days? Things are starting to open up now, but there is still a lot of uncertainty. Sorry I haven’t been around, I had a bit of a mental health blip, but my lovely family have rallied round and encouraged me and I am doing a lot better now. I am very lucky; although I live in a house with three autistic family members and a pre-teen who don’t always realise when I cannot cope or what to do about it, my eldest daughter, who may be over 200 miles away,  can still tell if things are not going well with me and will get people to check in with me.

At the weekend I took part in an online retreat with the Pinkies, Michelle Last’s team and I had a lovely time crafting alongside other like-minded people. Although we weren’t together in person, we were able to chat in a zoom room as we worked on our projects and it was so lovely. I will try and share some of the brilliant projects that we made over the next few days.

Today’s project is a little brighter than I would normally do, to reflect the bright and cheerful colours of the Designer Series Paper.

We recently did a team Party with Deb’s Upline Sam (Pootles), where she used this stamp set. I didn’t have it at the time, but I fell in love with it. This was the stamp set that was included in the bags for the ladies for our Catalogue Launch Party.  This was my project that they made with it.
