    That is lovely, Jane.
    I wish I had the patience for crafting. We do have a ceramics shop down the street where you can learn to paint statues but I'm so rubbish with colours. My imagination has atrophied over the years as well.

    Any talent I had with this sort of thing must've transferred to the kids!

    For El-ahrairah to cry....

    MimzMum, go for it. I'm sure the staff would help you with colour choices if you feel you're struggling. There's no right and wrong in crafting, often it's about the fun of the process rather than the finished object -says she who blogged about how she nearly chucked her shaker card through the window in frustration as it kept going wrong!

    They're all great, Jane. I particularly like the moneybox house. Anyway, how does the crafting make you feel? Does it help?

    The geeky one...

    Yep, I normally end up with back ache as I often craft standing up working on a table that's too low and aggravating my neck pain, but I still love doing it and I get absorbed in it.
    I missed your two latest makes when you posted then Jane, they are both wonderful x
