No two days are the same around here - especially with that extra present appearing each day and all the time we have for crafting and being super proud of it. I hope we'll stick to juggling just as much if not more in the new year. Today I wanted to show you our latest project for which we teamed up with Hobbycraft, a fabulous website for all things handmade! I had a pleasure of browsing through the gift section to get overwhelmed with original ideas focused on gifting. I was especially drawn to craft kits we have limited skills on like candle making or glass painting but which offer a great degree of creativity and flexibility with the final result. Although I was asked to choose one kit, I knew I'd be happy with most of the ideas featured. As a person upcycling jars and bottles whenever possible, I was curious to give Kirstie Allsopp Glass Painting Kit a try (although I'm eying the soap making one for further experimenting). It contained everything we needed to make a beautiful use of any glassware we stock in abundance: paint, outline designs, acetate sheets to practice, cards and envelopes for some more creativity.
The process of creating a beautiful stained glass imitation spoke to Nadia straight away and before we knew it, she was making the most colourful creation to date. I on the other hand had fun with a tea light holder which was then decorated with glitter, sequins and sparkly gems glued to the surface. I love that those creations cannot be replicated as techniques and ideas vary from person to person and the best part? Functionality as well as the decorative element! Definitely a perfect Christmas gift for all the artists out there whatever craft they're into. x
