Tiny little miniature birdhouses by the DT.

Moira at Happy Daze had the fab idea of sending each of us a miniature birdhouse to alter as a christmas decoration.

You can see the incredible design team results HERE.

I used the beautiful Pink Paislee Parisian Elements paper, a wooden spool, Kaiser Craft wooden picket fence, and Prima flowers, I also used a chalk spray, ultimate glue and gesso.

Mine is a one off but I love the idea of making them as place setting name holders to have on the dinner table...good job there are only four of us!

Love and tiny things

I have had a 5 inch cardboard photocube left over from a kit for about 3 years and when I needed to find a way to scrap my friends six children for her it was the 6 sided photocube that sprung to mind.

I used some Basic Grey papers from the sale at Happy Daze and altered my selected photos with the "Picnik" programme to give them all the same tones.

I'm not used to working with such bright colours but for this many kids it was definately the easiest option!

.....and finally my little namesake Lucie xxx

Love and large families
