    Picture Frames

    Our second decoupage class at the residential care homes this year. It’s a popular activity with the residents so I like to incorporate it regularly.

    Decoupage – Trinket Boxes

    I’ve been looking forward to doing this month’s residential home craft classes ever since I set up the time-table in January. I enjoy all my classes but decoupage is a particular favourite and my usual problem is trying to find an excuse to do it.

    Classes 2018

    Following my to do list in the previous post, it was nice to have my Residential Home classes confirmed this morning for the rest of the year. I enjoy doing them and it is good to hear positive feedback from both the residents and staff.

    Paper types for crafting

    I found the Jennifer Maker blog today. Her page on the best types of paper for different crafts goes into a lot of useful detail and is worth a read, but I found her summary table useful as a quick reference guide.
