I've been busying beavering away for the past few months, stock piling handmade gifts, working on new design ideas and generally having a blast making things!
I plan to share a few of my makes with you over the next week or so, but I thought I'd kick it off with our window decorations.
I couldn't sleep in on Saturday morning (head buzzing with preparations for the family party we were hosting that evening [it was wonderful!]) so I got up and painted some of our windows! hahaha ;)
Since we got a new door, we've had nowhere to hang a Christmas wreath so I thought it would be a mighty fine idea to paint one on the window at the bottom of the path...so it would great any visitors over the Christmas season.
I'd heard about using acrylic paint so, I had a quick Google and read a tip about mixing a little washing up liquid in with the paint, to make it really easy to remove*. And off I went!
It started with a wreath and then progressed to snowflakes on the kitchen windows. I love them even though it's all a bit freehand a wibbly - next year I may draw up some templates and tape them to the outside of the window to follow.
*I can confirm that it did come off easily as I botched a bit
I hope you like them...
Oh, and the best part of it - George's face when he came downstairs to find Mummy painting the windows...priceless!
cheerio for now
