Advent Calendar

My daughter has been looking in our craft books for Christmas crafts we can do. One of the things we found was an advent calendar.  As usual, she got fed up after a while so I finished it all off.  I think it looks quite pretty in the end!

Name plaque for James

Continuing with my 'boyish' makes, here is a name plaque I also made for my son James.  I made one of these for my daughter several years ago and thought it would be nice for him to have one too.  

When I went to the HobbyCrafts show recently, I bought a lot from the MDF man and this plaque was one of them.  I painted it with a tester pot of paint and then used some letter stickers and dinosaur stickers that I bought from The Range.  Hopefully he'll enjoy it when he's a bit older!

Boy's room canvases

I have finally managed to start crafting again in the new house and thought I should make something for my son's room.  It's a bit different trying to make things for a boy but I'm enjoying the challenge.  I've made two new canvases for his room.  

First I made a zoo canvas using blue wallpaper as a background and stuck large stickers I got from 'The Range' for £1.  I still have several left so might have to make something else with them!  I then found some black alphabet stickers and added those to the corner. 

For the second canvas I kept it very simple just using a sample of wallpaper which we might use for the whole room eventually.  I like the idea of robots for his room so will see where it goes!
