When I was at my local supermarket I saw this tired bunny. I like my chocolate too!!! Happy Easter everyone. Not a bad photograph seeing as I took it with my mobile (cell) phone.

Some time ago whilst blog surfing I came across a blog Adventures in Dressmaking and I was inspired by a photograph on her blog of these decorated bottles. Click on this link. Thank you for the inspiration.
My friend has a son who is a missionary in Kiev, and he is entirely self funded. There is a fund raising sale table for Mother's Day shortly and I got out some soy candles (in glass jars), hessian (recycling at its best, I cut off from unused carpet when I recently recarpeted), lace and ribbons and went to town with my inspiration picture above. I did not use any glue and I hand stitched the lace to the hessian and then handstitched the wraps at the back. For sale I added care information on the use and display of candles.
I also put in the package of goodies some greeting cards I have made. Good luck Linda with your fundraising.

For sometime now I have been reading the blog of The Lollipop Ladies. As they write on their blog they give you sweet-inspired themes to use in your projects. Now as one to who has a sweet tooth I have finally been inspired to create a scrapbook page based on their current challenge, this photograph of rock candy plus music (rock music of course)!:
When I was in Paducah, Kentucky, USA visiting my friend for her 90th birthday this past December, we went to a Christmas concert by Annie Moses Band - a great rocking family band. Can you see how I used the photo above for inspiration?
The decorations on this paper (sorry, I don't remember the company name) that reminded me of the rock candy and the notes (that are dimensional stickers I purchased in USA and printed twill tape) wafting across the page have my feet tapping remembering this happy occasion.
