Patience is a virtue

I bought this dated 3D frame clock from a charity shop with the exact intention of using these Websters Pages Papers to put inside it and turn it into a cute/kitch 1950's clock.

The only problem was I didn't have the papers and had no way of getting I bid my time and waited....and waited......and finally YIPEE....Tillys has the whole range in..SCREAM!!!!

Now I can hang out at Websters.ning again Yay!! The ladies are so talented over there.

(Mind you the beautiful Christmas papers will probably arrive in the UK next Summer!!) So I will still be a season behind" Oh well" like I said...Patience is a virtue!!

I was busting to get my clock made especially as my kitchen is nearly finished and I know it will look perfect. It is going to be my inspiraion for my new colour theme. Red, white and touches of pale blue and pink......think Kath Kidston meets American/Swiss country cottage! OK in my mind it looks like that in reality it needs tiling and painting and new blinds still!

I have entered the clock in the November Challenge on Inspire Me so pop on over and check out the rest of the creations in the Websters Pages gallery it really is a breath taking place to be.

Love and virtues

Hi Ruth, I popped in to say a big thank you for your tutorial on the accordion album you did a few months ago. Looks like things haven't changed are still as talented as ever !!!! LOVE the clock. I just might have to ask Santa to take it off your wall and put it in my Christmas Stocking this year LOL.
Anyhow, thanks for the tutorial on the album. I took inspiration from it (since I didn't win it) and created my own - well for my daughter. I also left a link to your tutorial on my blog.
Cheers, Irene :)
