Welcome everyone to Handmade Monday. This is where we get to share what we've been up to all week, a great chance to share your makes, bakes and all your adventures in the world of crafts.
How has your week been? Saturday was National Tea Day here in the Uk apparently - who makes up these things? Anyway, I'm a big tea fan so here's a random photo of my most favourite tea pot. It originally belonged to my Nan and Granddad. My Nan chose it when she and my Granddad were celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary, everyone in the family bought a different bit for them and they ended up with a full service. I am lucky enough to have it now although we don't actually use it very often.
My Nan adored this tea service, none of this "keeping it for best". She used it everyday and I kind of like that.
Here are the features from last week's Handmade Monday.
Little Kimono shared how to make this lovely felt lavender, so so pretty.
Teodora Paintings made over a display cabinet, I especially love the chalkboard door fronts.
Paulette's Papers turned a page of lovely watercolour roses into 3 beautiful cards. I must get my watercolours out and have a go at this technique, it's so, so pretty.
Congratulations to you all. there is a "YAY I was featured" button for your blog over here if you want to show off just a little (I think you should!)
I do try my best to visit you all and also to pin your projects to our Handmade Monday Pinterest board. The trouble is that the more popular the link up gets the harder it is for me to get to you all. Please do consider joining our Pinterest Board if you've not already done so and then you can pin your projects directly. To join just follow the board and follow the instructions on the board description.
Handmade Monday is all about building a crafting community, (it's always better together) so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. Share some of your favourites on your social media maybe and leave a nice comment or two. Let's support one another :-)
The rules for Handmade Monday are very simple:
- Did you make it? Yes - then hooray, we'd love to see it
- Add the link to a specific post, not your main blog url
- You can link up to 3 posts each week but try to make sure it's not stuff you've shared here before
- Mingle - visit some other links - comment - share
