The weekend just gone was quite a busy one for me as it was my sister’s wedding!
Of course I only wanted to help where I could naturally…She had a handmade/vintage theme going on. Which was absolutely stunning of course.
So here was my contribution to their very special day, a card box well suitcase.
Heres how it looked when I first got my hands on it:
As you can see the suitcase insides were pretty gritty and neglected. But after a good old clean and tidy up and of course the art of decoupage I was able to breathe a new lease of life into this vintage suitcase.
I was pretty happy with the end results, it fitted in a treat with the rest of the decorations. I also made the card shabby chic styled banner and included a variety of rhinestone’s in different areas of the suitcase to give it a dash of elegance.
I was able to do this all in a good days work. I was kinda sad to see this leave my side…As an artist always does has a certain attachment to there creations. But I was happy enough to love & let go of this piece. So glad it got to be used on such a special occasion that will not be forgotten for years to come.
I have tons to catch up with so I shall see you all very soon!

I was searching online for some Christmas baking inspiration when I came across one of the most kawaii and simplest ideas ever!
Milkmen via: Bakerella.
Snowmen milk and doughnuts! These are just super adorable and easy to whip up for any get together you want to impress.
All you need is:
Small milk glasses.
Powdered doughnut holes. (Cake could work to if you make a hole with out it falling apart.)
Felt and buttons to decorate the bottle.
& wollah you have yourself an instant Christmas creation, perfect for all ages!
As you know recently I went to a car boot in search of cheap furniture for my craft fair displays.
Well I’ve had a busy morning painting away, so I’m now finally happy to share my results:
They still need a little touch up here and there, and I need to buy some more white paint for the finishing touches but im generally happy with the results so far!
Who would have thought that £6 worth of furniture could look so different with a lick of paint. I’m quandering whether to do some pinstripe painting on the side of the bigger cabinet… But with “FluffyGhost” there… Hmmmm the possibilities.
Recently I had my first custom request from an awesome customer to make a pink rainbow Jellyfish, after seeing me post my blue one. So that’s exactly what I did…
What do you think?
Super happy she loves it & it’s now enjoying its new home. ^____^
For anyone interested in having their own custom piece done, just drop me an email email@example.com
My Jellyfish currently retail at £8.00 (Bear in mind that if you want certain materials used like just strands of pearls, it could cost more.)
I shall be adding them eventually to my Etsy as well as some Fluffyghost’s when I get a free moment. So don’t forget to always keep popping over to my shop.
Have a great day!
So this weekend I’ve been crafting like mad, with my fellow friend who will be working the craft fair with me.
What did I make?
Well a little of this and that… Ok here’s a little sneak peak into some of my art:
A small family of purple Fluffyghosts as well as a canvas painting of “bubble people”
A creepy cute melting man…Maybe I’ve been watching too much live, Pink Floyd?… Owell haha. As well as a kawaii Jellyfish. Really happy with the way it turned out. I might need to make him a little family too.
So what do you think?
Be kind! ^___<
Be back tomorrow,
Just quickly popping in today with a photo of my latest gift wrapping. As some of you might know, I’m like one of Santa’s elf’s…I just love wrapping
presents anything really. I just take a lot of pride in it. Don’t ask why, I really don’t know haha. But when Christmas comes I wrap like crazy, from mine, Mr H’s and my fathers. (That was just last year, I was on a wrapping mission.)
Anyway here’s some wrapping I’ve recently done for one of my friend’s birthday:
Anyway I’m off to plan and make tons of things with my friend for our first ever craft fair. I tell you all about it when it gets closer to the date.
Have a great Saturday!
P.S: I want to thank all of my new and loyal followers on here, or my social networking sites. So as a way to say thank you I shall be hosting an awesome giveaway; when Fluffyghost Facebook hits 100 followers (On 92 currently.) So keep checking back on Fluffyghost Facebook. Thanks so much! ^____^
Just popping in today with a little something I made recently. I’ve always loved making ragga muffin wreaths, as well as sewing. So after a day of playing around with fabric, this baby was born:
I started with the intention of making a Ragga muffin wreath but after I had finished the bottom I kinda got another idea. So I layered up the wire to give it a more rustic texture and sewed together a little pink birdie. That now stands on a wire foot attached to the base. So now I have an abstract kawaii birds nest.
What do you think?
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
5 Days to my birthday woohoo…
