Keyrings & Keyfobs for Handmade Monday

Hello all, I hope you have all had a good week, the time is passing by so quickly, hardly a blink of an eye and another week has passed.

I've made quite a few keyfobs in the past..... 

Keys for Grandad's Shed
A place for Daddy's keys


Chunky keyrings

 Keyrings for Daddy

Fabric keyfobs

Fabric Fobs that are great for more than keys.

These can be used for bag charms, for zip pulls on jackets or bags, pencil cases or lunch bags.

Fairy Door Fobs

and my latest ones are some little 'garden sheds' 

These have be handpainted onto wood and each one is different. I'm going to put these into my Folksy and WowThankYou shops with the option of personalising them.

I'm off to have a nosey at lots of other crafty people who have linked up with Handmade Harbour 

Take Care

April Showers for Handmade Monday

Hi guys, I missed joining in with Handmade Monday last week, I've been busy doing lots of family things for the last couple of weeks and loving every bit of it. Just a short post from me this week.
I haven't had much time to do 'crafty' things but I did have fun doing a small painting for The Crafty Network Craft Challenge

Wibbley Houses & April Showers

The theme was Pastel Colours and April Showers. I think it would make a great addition to a child's bedroom or nursery.

I had a lovely response to my last blog post and would like to say 
Thank you, thank you & thank you

to everyone who popped over, it was lovely to read all your comments. 

 Bye for now....

Little Wooden Houses

Another week has passed and it's time once again to saunter over to Handmade Monday @ Handmade Harbour, a great place to catch up with lots of great blogs.
On Saturday (6th April) I took part in one of the few craft fairs I'm attending this year. I was hoping for a pleasant day on the weather front and wasn't disappointed. It stayed bright and sunny all day, it was still a bit on the chilly side but hey, don't knock it, it's one of the best day's we've had for a while. The fair started slow but footfall built up nicely throughout the day. I had a reasonable day as did a few of the other stall holders but unfortunately some stalls didn't do well at all.

I thought I'd show you some little Wooden Houses I've been working on

A Row of Houses
The Post Office

These have been handpainted and have details on all sides

Hanging out the washing
A Cottage Garden


I've included a Post Office and a Police Station, other houses in the planning stage are a Sweet Shop, Tea Rooms and a Fire Station, some of the details I can include are door numbers or House Names, bird tables, a teapot on a table and many more items. These can also be painted to the customers specifications. What items would you choose to paint on one of these houses that would best represent you and your home?

 Have a great week
