Birthday Inspiration

 49 today:)
Started the day with a cuppa, Birthday Cards and this video by Darren Rowse which a email had sent me. Great to start the next year.
also this was on a card Gill gave me,"Life is not a Matter of counting the years, it's a matter of making the years count."
So true, so here's to the year:)))

Enchanted Nest

The nests in the window displays have come to symbolise 
how much we love our new studio.
These nests started off a twig garden display hats
which we trimmed and then decorated with strips of fabric, ribbon,
wool, thread and trims.
See the full photos on The Old Art Room HERE
I found this video on You Tube so you can make your
from chicken wire. Ours were made slightly different.

Cinch Machine

This is a new machine for my studio to help me make a dent in the papers I accumulate
with each project. I also like to recycle packaging and add extra pages to sketchbooks.
This will be a great help,I have been marking and single hole punching for years.
