Glue is such fun......

OK just a really quick one (still working on Etsy and website but get distracted waaay too easily).
I have been at the decoupage again I'm quite pleased with this on as it actually serves a purpose to me, I don't have a craft room (much to my disappointment) I just have a set of shelves and a kitchen table but I am aiming to organise and glamourize my shelves as much as I can, so I am starting with storage options. I want pretty, practical and personalised (the 3P plan).

This is what I am kicking off with......

This was made using a set of brown paper covered office trays from Tesco and gift wrapping tissue paper from Paperchase easy peasy and totally satisfying.

A Little Rustic Heritage

Now before anyone who follows the Ruby Makes blog starts to complain about me stealing post content I have only slightly stolen this one little bit and I'm fairly sure she's not going to sue me as she's my lovely niece!

By the way I strongly advise anyone with children (and looking to fill the dragging hours of the summer holidays) to follow Ruby's blog its full of kids craft ideas and tutorials!!

Aaaanyway I found a link on her blog to a web page about my late Grandfather Rudy Knight it made interesting reading for me and I'm sure it will you. He was Wall of Death rider in the first half of the last century and its pretty scary stuff involving motorbikes and a wooden cylinder (sort of), My Grandmother used to ride on the handlebars!!

So here is the Link where you can read about this man.....
