52 Weekends No.20 – Valentines Pressed Flower Keepsake

Love is in the air this weekend as Valentines Day approaches, which makes it the perfect weekend to make a Valentines Keepsake for this weeks 52 Weekends Project.

Just before Christmas my wonderful Husband bought me a beautiful bunch of flowers to cheer me up, in the bunch was some Gypsophila sprayed with gold, it was so lovely I decided to pressed it. I knew it would look great framed in my cute little Oliver Bonas kiko frame along with this beautiful quote ‘If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.’ The perfect valentines gift.

52 Weekends No.19 – Traditional Afternoon Tea at the Palace

52 weekends is inspiration for craft projects, things to do or places to visit. This week it’s a little bit of everything. To celebrate my Mum’s birthday I’m treating her to a traditional afternoon tea at the Orangery at Blenheim Palace as a surprise. So I designed and made a cute little invite to surprise her with, I used one of my vintage tea cups to draw from and used tissue paper for the pattern, the idea is the tea bag being pulled out of the cup… I’m really pleased with how it turned out and Mum and I had a fabulous day!

52 Weekends No. 16 – Feed the Birds

This winter weekend I thought it would be nice idea to give the birds a helping hand finding their food with the added bonus of attracting them to my little garden.

So quick and easy to make and takes no time at all. All you’ll need is; bird seed (think my bag cost me a pound at Wilko), block of fat, found pine cones, string and cookie cutters. And simply dunk the pine cones into the melt fat them into the seeds. After that you can mix the fat and seed together and fill cookie cutters with the mix.  Chill in the fridge to help it set.

52 weekends No.15 – Making Plans and planners

With it being the first weekend of the new year, it seemed right to use my time making plans, setting goals (both work and play) and booking trips. Which has left me feeling very organised and relaxed as well as looking forward to an amazing year ahead. I also made a wall planner for January to help keep me organised and remind me of my goals and my to do list. It’s hand drawn and took no time at all. If you struggle with nice hand drawn fonts, do what I did and trace them directly of your computer 😉

52 Weekends No.14 – New Years Eve Party

52 Weekends No.14 – New Year’s Eve Party. Today I’ve been busy preparing for a little New Years Eve Party we’re hosting, nothing huge… just games and crisps with the family. I did want it to add a little sparkle to the occasion so I’ve been busy making a banner for the wall and sparklers for our drinks. It was a fun little project, perfect for this weeks 52 Weekends project. I’m looking forward to sharing more weekend inspiration in 2018. Happy New Year everyone xx
