Graze Box - Week 1

I have always wanted to try Graze boxes. I had a code from a friend to get box 1,5 and 10 free ( all other boxes at £3.99) You can chose to get your boxes weekly, fortnightly or monthly. I have chosen to get mine weekly as my treat for the week. As this was my first box I'm happy with what they sent as they are things that I said I wanted to try. Every thing is delicious. 
In my box I received:
1x Lightly salted popping corn 
1x Dark rocky road
1x Rough blend peanut butter with pretzel sticks 
1x Garden of Eden (dried fruits) 

I would recommend giving Graze a try. If you are interested you can get box 1,5 and 10 free with code  LEXIL52CB or LEXIL52CE you can stop your subscription at any time ( even after your 1st free box has been delivered) and you can have boxes delivered at any time you want. Weekly, fortnightly or monthly. You can also chose to buy additional one off boxes as well once a week. There is also an option to buy a box for a friend as a gift. 
Thanks for reading :)

Hand made ART journal * & I'm back :)

I haven't wrote on this blog in such a long time. Over a year in fact !! I thought it was about time that I started again :) So here I am with my 1st of many posts to come. I really wanted to get back in to art journalling. But the price of art journals these days is crazy :{ So I decided to make my own from 3 a4 sketch pads, some acrylic paint, stencils, stamps and stickers. I took apart the sketch pads and divided the paper into 4 piles and cut down to 8x8 inches. I also added some card scraps into each pile. I then book bound all 4 sections together. I kept hold of the covers from the sketch pads and glued all 3 covers together and used this for the cover of the art journal. And attached the cover to the pages the same way I bound all 4 sections together. I then just splashed on some paint :) used a few stencils with the acrylic paints. And stamped a few flower images onto the cover. Added a few stickers and silver beads to the butterfly. Thank you for reading this post and I hope you enjoy the pictures. :) Have a great day...

Crafted Items for my lounge

Home sweet home hanging 8x8 canvas:
Painted teal and white. Added a paper house/flowers/butterfly and dragonfly.
Doodled with a pen around the windows/door and edges etc. 
Used an old chain attached to 2 hooks on the top to hang. 
Tied on a ribbon and tiny key.
12x12 wooden chest : was originally painted white with pink flowers.
I painted the chest cream and then over the pink flowers
I painted teal and then sponged over with some cream paint.
Added a flower and brad to the top.
Great box to keep my pen pal letters in :)

Christmas Tree Table Decoration



Just a little something I made today to put on my table this year for Christmas.
I had an old sided table I no longer used so chopped the legs into pieces.
I Covered the pieces with paper and then rubbed paint over certain area's.
I tied some fibres around and added a vintage button on a chain.
I doodled some lines and drew a few hearts on and added a flower
with a pearl bead centre.
Thanks for looking.
Lexi :)
