Thanks Smiley Yeah - the puzzle was originally this kind of gross green lawn pattern, so they're painted with acrylic paint. I actually used paint meant for miniatures as it was a lot smoother. The circle is a plastic sparkly gem, it just doesn't shop up well in the photo!

I so would have taken that right back if he dumped me. LOVE it! I like chess and this is a really cool take on the pieces and board

So what do you do when you find some old jigsaw pieces under the sofa? You make jewellery from them of course! This isn't the only one I have made - but so far my photographing skills (which as you can see from the pic leave a bit to be desired!) have meant that none of the others has come out like at all. Bah.

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I think this counts as a recon... on: December 06, 2009 04:26:07 AM
Ok so I have 0 money at the moment (trying to support my student husband on a librarian's wage...) so for my mother's birthday I decided to recon an old picture frame I got for 25p in a charity shop. (Before, it was just chipped black wood frame, with a piece of glass, held together with packing tape. Yuk.) She liked it anyway, so that's all that matters Smiley
C&C welcome
29  COOKING / Dessert / Cautionary tale... on: December 06, 2009 04:17:41 AM
Ok so I'm posting this more for the cautionary tale than for the cake itself which didn't turn out as good as I'd wanted.

So, I decided to make a Watchman cake for DH's birthday, but I wanted it to be a surprise. FAIL. My idea initially was to bake it at my parents' house, but DH decided that "oh, you're seeing your parents, I'll come along too" so that didn't work. I then decided to tell the truth and say I was making something for him so could he keep away from the kitchen. But no, when I came home with the ingredients for the cake DH  decided to try to sneak a look in the bag. Bah. So then I tried to bake it and ice it without anything else being given away, with DH claiming that he was hungry/thirsty/wanted to go into the back garden the whole time. Oh and him saying "Can I see it yet?" every few minutes - and "Is that cake I smell? - Can I have some?" For goodness sake!!!
Anyways... so the thing ended up being rushed and not exactly how I wanted it to turn out. So the moral of the story is I think, if you have a man (or lady) as nosy as mine, just get it over with and let them know what you're making them! There, my good deed is done for the day Wink

So here it is anyway -

Still tasted yummy Cheesy
