An apology about posts (or lack of them)

I'm so very sorry readers about the sparsity of my posts at the moment.

I'm studying for my degree, through the open university and I have an exam coming VERY SOON.

I will get back to more regular posts once my exam is done. The exam is on the 10th June and I have a lot of studying to do since I have not done very much all year.

Wish me luck!!

Home Decor Item

I loved this top hat but I had no idea what to do with it so I have turned it into a home decor item.

top hat, paper, hearts a flutter, stampin up

A few months ago I was inspired by an article in Craft Stamper magazine and I made the top hat which you can see in the picture.

I thought about putting a piece of ribbon through it and using it as a Christmas Tree Decoration but the way I had decorated it didn't really say "Christmas" to me.

It did make me think about Alice in Wonderland (and I happened to have a beautiful tea leaf tin) so I took some inspiration from that and this is where it led me.

I hope you enjoy! The pattern for the hat was one which came from craft stamper magazine, I had to alter it a bit but I love how this all turned out.

Please let me know what you think.
