Baby Shower

Hi readers,

I have been so busy lately preparing for my sister-in-laws baby shower. Well it is all over with now, but we had a great afternoon yesterday.

Below are some photos I managed to snap in between cooking and fetching drinks!

The invitations I made for the shower. I found the idea on pinterest, but instead of sewing the fabric on, I glued it. Much easier!

My String Art


Recently, I was inspired to create my own string art (you can read about it here). I decided to take on something simple to begin with - a heart.

It was pretty easy to create - I purchased a pack of cork floor tiles from Bunnings for $12 (I used two of the other ones for another project).

I painted the tile white with acrylic paint and a roller. I printed a heart on to two sheets of A4 paper and then stuck them on to the cork tile. I then began pushing the nails in to the cork. I used a pencil as a 'spacer'. I used a small screw in the centre - it is a bit stronger than the very small nails.

Then comes the fun part - attaching the string! Pretty easy - just wind the floss around the nails. I purchased DMC floss from Spotlight. I needed about three lots.

Voila! Very inexpensive and interesting art.

What do you think? I think it looks great on my new bookcase.
