Lazy Susans

Lazy Susan turntables make great desk tidies. I have put my tools, brushes, inks and glue station on one on my desk. I also have one in my fridge which means all the jars can be easily reached. Tip from Pinterest!!

Kenwood K Mix Word Art Decoration

I have been wanting to do this for ages and finally got out my vinyl! Wordart is courtesy of Sarah :)

Make sure you have the right setting for cutting your Vinyl, my Eclips has a vinyl setting but you need to make sure your machine 'kiss cuts' it so that it doesn't cut right the way through the backing paper. You will also need transfer tape which you can buy by the sheet or in rolls.

It takes a while to cut out and you then have to 'weed' out the excess vinyl very carefully and then transfer onto the machine. Take your time and the finished result will be amazing :)

Custom Phone Cover

After upgrading my phone to the gorgeous new Samsung Galaxy S4 recently I bought myself the flip view case for it which is very clever, you don't have to open the case to answer the phone and it unlocks itself when you do. I love it, so when one of the kitties rang across the table and put 2 huge scratches in the front I could not bear to look at those scratches any longer :( But at £49.99 for a new one,  it was not a throw away job! Therefore I decided to use some of my Cath Kidston -esque fabric and made a template and recovered the front in fabric. So easy to do and I am so pleased with how it turned out too. Dab of glue around the edges of the fabric to stop fraying and it is much improved :)
