The Crafty Lass does… Children’s ‘Owl’ Decoupage Workshop!

Today was great – in fact it was a ‘hoot’! (Haha! – hoot, get it?)

We had lots of lovely brightly coloured paper, feathers, little shiny gems, googly eyes, plenty of pva glue – and some cute owl photo frames to decorate.

Held at Elaine Marston’s Studio at Turweston, Brackley – across a two hour workshop we spent the time choosing colours, tearing up the paper, and sticking on to our hearts content!

As you will be able to see from the photos every one was different – some with pinks, some with blue, some patterned, some without feathers, some with LOTS! After the owls were complete, as we had a little bit of extra time – we moved on to creating some lovely drawings and collages to go into the frames.

Everyone seemed to have a fun and creative time and with a few little bits of feedback direct from the attendees of ‘Let’s do this every week!’, ‘Can we do decoupage again?!’ and ‘I’ve really enjoyed myself’ – I personally am of course, pleased as punch!

 

From starting out on this creative journey of becoming ‘The Crafty Lass’ as a business – today, the moment a parent walked back in to collect their children – to be met with a ‘Mummy! Look what I have made!’ moment – it was very special, and one that I am certain, I will never become tired of.

A great and rewarding morning’s work! 🙂

The Crafty Lass does… Big birthday celebrations!

It’s been a busy week of celebrating some special birthdays – my dad turned 70 and one of our close friend’s Mark turned 40!

What better way to celebrate than to have some delicious birthday cake…and topped with a The Crafty Lass cake topper!

For my dad’s birthday, we had a wonderful Carrot, Cardamom and Pistachio cake from Cotswold Baking. It was so light and moist – scrumptious… clean plates all round, even after a three course lunch!

For the cake topper, I went with a ‘nautical’ theme – he loves sailing and can’t get enough of the summer sunshine – so a lovely little yacht, floating on the crest of a wave with a big bright yellow sun. Birthday bunting, and a little anchor completed the look. 🙂

For Mark’s 40th, we celebrated with some vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting. Mark is very into cars – and so using Adobe Illustrator I fashioned some road and speed signs to celebrate Mark’s special day. I am not sure I would be able to re-create the speed signs for commercial sale as the original British road sign designs are Crown copyright. However, for a small friend’s gathering – I am hoping this was ok! The road signs aren’t quite the same – but you get the feel and the idea! The yacht design was entirely my own design and creation 🙂

Happy Birthday Dad and Mark!

Afternoon Tea Garden Party!

What a glorious day yesterday was – the sun shone from morning til late evening – and good job it did too – we were invited to an afternoon tea (and prosecco!) garden party, and so rain wasn’t really part of the agenda…! (We were very lucky as both Friday, and today have been horrid!)

There were scones, plenty of clotted cream and jam, typically British sarnies, cakes… we didn’t leave hungry!

Aside from prosecco, delicious food, music, good company – every good party needs some decorations! And that is precisely where The Crafty Lass stepped in.

The brief was simple… make anything you like! But mainly the colour purple.

So, I set about making personalised bunting “Happy Birthday Amee” and “Time For Tea”, paper roses, tissue paper flowers, a party hat and rosette for The Birthday Girl, little cupcake flags, and heart confetti in hot pinks, purples, naturals and creams. (Alot of crafty fun was had!)

 

If you are looking for something that little bit special for a celebration – why not get in touch to see if The Crafty Lass can be of help. Or, alternatively – coming soon are the creative workshops where you can come along, be inspired and get involved to make these lovely crafty things for yourself! 🙂 Make. Create. Inspire.
