Decoupaged.... everything!!

I know I said I was going to write on my blog more this year and I haven't and there is no excuse for it, yes I am extremely busy with the shop and classes which I run all on my own and now a single woman looking after my 13 year old Grandson who has had to move to another new house but they are not excuses they are reasons why I haven't been able to write more on here.
I don't like to talk a lot about my private life and find it hard sometimes to say how I feel so I opt to stay away until I do.

So what have I been doing in the world of crafting I hear you ask, well I don't but lets pretend there is someone out there who is remotely interested in reading this blog post and who will be delighted to see what I have been doing in the few spare hours I do get.

It was my birthday in June and I asked for an old type phone, cream in colour and this is what I got, a new phone made to look like one from my childhood but with all the modern things you need a phone to have, push button dialling, last No. redial etc.

and this is what I did with it

Looks pretty now doesn't it? What do you think?

I then started to look at using this method on other things like this lamp base

then these shelves

and then these handles of which I have had a steady stream of orders for

So they have all kept me busy over the past few weeks

I wonder what else it would look good on?
