With a little help from Kirstie......

Yes, one my christmas presents this year, was the lovely KHMH book, I like many others have watched both series on TV and so looked forward to receiving the book............



As with any good cookbook, there were some crafts that although lovely, I knew I would never attempt, but some appealed because they were easy to follow and affordable to do......



My first craft to try was fabric decoupage............ I loved it!




My first attempt....a little tatty around the rims, but a lot fresher look...



Add a painted lampbase ............

Needless to say several other lampshades have a recent revamp too!

A couple of other crafts I hope to try, are the simple envelope cushion and soap making.....

So if you are looking for a new craft to try, I recommend KHMH for some simple affordable ideas.....

Have a great week!!

  3. Love what you've done with the lampshade. I have the same book. Just right for pulling off the shelf for some comfort reading.
