January always seems to be such a grey month. For some reason I haven't noticed it this year. Things seem to be going well for me and I must say, I'm loving it.
There are some small things making me smile at the moment, just a few little finishing touches I have added to things to finish them off nicely. I thought I'd share them with you today.
Firstly using an old spaghetti jar to house all my pretty cupcake cases, I have seen this method used in a few places now and thought it seemed such a shame to hide away all that beautiful colour so they are now kept here.
I have even used the pretty heart that was in my Magic Ball Swap parcel sent from Pj at The Snail Garden just to pretty it up even more.
Something else from Pj were these gorgeous paper roses on wire. I have wound the wire round my mannequin and I just love it, it really adds a bit of colour to it, I'm really pleased with the transformation even though it is only small.
Finally a little make for you. And my first make for 2012. I will be using this for Annie's Make A Month. I have used an old travel sweets tin and added some paper from a magazine that I quite liked the look of, and a good old bit of modge podge (gotta love that stuff) I have then stuck on some buttons and other crafting realted items included some card making bits and pieces and some ribbon.
And there you have it, a cute little craft tin to use for buttons or pins. I have not yet decided what I wil use it for but it was so easy to create and I'm really pleased with the finished product.
I'm feeling rather quite organised this month, not a bad start to the year at all.
