Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone.

So, what does 2010 hold for the nest? Well, its pretty much a given that there will be less money around, so I have started as I mean to go on and have used some of my old stash (including a few things scavagened from the recycling bin!) to create something beautiful and for a change, useful.

In order to save a few extra pennies in 2010 I have made this pretty money box from an old whisky bottle box, I have tried to make it as pretty as possible so that I wont be tempted to cut it open and dip into the cash....lets see how long it takes.

I used some the Rangers crackle paint my parents bought me for christmas, a used paper serviette (the black flower), bit of old text left over from the altered book, some old netting, lots of torn papers and some scrabble tiles to spell out the word SAVINGS - just in case I forget what its there for! Then, I totally messed up-what I thought was a spray can of satin varnish was actually white paint!! So, the colours are a little more muted then they were meant to be-but hey, a happy mistake as I think it still looks quite all I need is to start feeding it!

Hope you all have a great new year, peaceful for those that wish it, and full of company for those party animals out there.

Love Li'l Pidge x
