UKS blog hop.

First let me say a big HI to anyone visiting me for the first time, you are very welcome but I must warn you this Blog is in it's infancy so please bear with me... we all have to start somewhere.

Speaking of starting somewhere, there is a Blog hop today over on UKS so I decided to start at the top with Alison over at her blog- Bricabracadocio where she had a lovely home decor project to pretty up her bedroom while trying to sell her house.

She asked if anyone else had anything similar and I was ready to write my reply when I realised actually for once I DID!

I love pinterest.. I can spend hours on pinterest.. in fact I did today pinning pretty crochet things (if I work out how I will add a linky button in on the side over there... you know over there ------->) anyway I digress.

This is my home decor project... inspired by Pinterest and shamelessly ripped off from the gorgeous things over on Not on the high street dot com.

Sorry for the photo quality and evidence of clothes washing in background I snapped a few pictures just before wrapping it.

This canvas was a Christmas gift for my step sister and uses my much loved Martha Stewart butterfly punch and scraps from my equally well loved (and vast) October Afternoon paper collection.

The butterflies were suppose to all stand neatly but the pesky things just wanted to fly off... so I let them!

Thanks for visiting.


ps yes, I know it is silly later for playing around blog hopping but I'm on nights starting tomorrow so resetting my body clock to sleep in day by staying up half the night is one of the few pleasure involved in shift work :)


  1. Liz- thanks for visiting my blog and commenting ... I love your project! Isn't it satisfying when you know you have created something lovely yourself, and also saved some cash into the bargain? Happy scrapping!

  2. Your project is super - might just have to pin that myself for future inspiration aka shameless copying ;-)

  3. very pretty! now a follower! jenx
