Wee Christmas Birdies

Hi everyone!

Hope you are having a great weekend, Just a quickie post from me today with a quick share on what I got up to yesterday whilst I was through at the Cardwell Garden Centre in Gourock demonstrating for Indigoblu!

Check out these cute little glass birdie tree decorations,  I applied a layer of flitterglu direct to the glass, waited for the glu to go clear/translucent then smothered them in gorgeous Megaflake.. I LOVE them so much, and so did the customers, because they sold out completely :-)   a huge thank you to Mairi and Faye who gave me these little beauties to play with.

Needless to say I will now be scouring the internet to try and find these so that I can decorate and put some on my tree :-)

p.s. the birds are (L) Chocolate Box (R) Royal Peacock

Glass Birds

I have been crafting like a mad woman today… you catch up with what I have been making over on the Indigoblu Blog this Tuesday 18th November.

I also have a step by step tutorial this week on the Indigoblu blog, which will be a video, so you won’t want to miss that one… I have had a lot of requests for this ;-)

Oki doki.. I’m off, what was initially going to be a quickie post turned into a bit of a rambling lol…

As always thank you so much for your support

See you next week!
