More than meets the eye

It's been about a year since i got inspired in the recycling department. It's stuck and now i see more and more uses for supposedly useless items. On almost a daily basis i see more inspiration on the www. So here are today's creations, in part inspired by my fellow bloggers and the rest down to me.

This little brooch was made using a shrunken jumper. I played around and played around and finally after being inspired to have a go at making a material flower/rose settled on this. The picture doesn't really do it much justice, but i think you can get the jist.

This glass jar was covered with the sleeve of a previously recycled jumper the roses also made with other oddments from this jumper. I saw this idea here i think the idea of cute woolly jars storing your pencils or brushes is far nicer than just empty jars but then you know me and jars :)

And finally, no element recycled  this is also one of this weeks creations. Made using a fairy transfer from a book sent to me kindly by my friend Senta. All hand sewn and filled with sunshine, love and lavender :)

Five Festive Trees

So how organised do i feel. Five Christmas cards finished and we're not even at the end of January. These cards were inspired by a craft leaflet at Hobbycraft for these teabag folded tree's. Thought I'd give it a go and gosh they work so well for using odd bits and pieces of paper that's piling up, you know how you hang on to all sorts. So I'm ahead of the game and was also able to enter these into January's challenge over at Christmas Cards all Year Round, the challenge was anything goes so voila :)
