A Pinch and a Punch for the first of the month 😉  .. Happy April Everyone!!

Sooooo… as many of you all know, my son kindly woke me up this morning running a bath.. at 7am!!!! so much for my long lay in!!

First I made some more decorative frosted flower pins… i’m addicted, they are fun to make and look good too!

  1. A good days work, Sarah. The pins are gorgeous and so are your projects. I wish I could say I was as prolific but my husband commandeered me for garden duty, time for the spring clean of all the pots, etc., so not much crafting done at all. Hope you have as lovely a day tomorrow. Elizabeth x

    1. Hi there Elizabeth…

      Thanks for stopping by… garden duty.. I really need to get stuck into mine too, the front looks good but the back could do with a good old tidy up 🙂

  2. Sarah, those pins are so beautiful. Where did you get the tulip shaped beads from?

    You’re cards are sumptuous as always and I’m sorry I missed your stream and couldn’t see you making everything.

  3. I love your pins, they are beautiful. I make pins with 8mm size beads and was wondering on those tulip bead caps what size should I get so the bead fits inside of the tulip? Thanks so much for your help and for sharing…..

    1. I used a standard stick pin/hat pin and it fit inside the tulip cup just fine, I get my pins from Wild Orchid Crafts… Also I use 6mm beads for my pins, hope this helps 🙂

      Thanks for leaving a comment and popping in Mitzi

  4. So very sorry that I missed your shed visit this morning!! I’m REALLY loving these pins of yours!! the cards are stunning!
