Chalkboards For The Kids

I have boxes of odd letters I can't use, and with the boutique wanting all sorts of handmade gifts I decided to use the 12 x 12 frame to make some chalkboards for the kids. Finally I will get rid off all my odd letters.

You will find the 12 x 12 frames at, but I would like to know from you - should I have a few already painted (with chalkboard paint) for sale?

Rock Art Key Ring & Tin

Key Ring

I used the rock art on a fabric flower & some old junk jewellery to make this keyring


I used rock art on the tin, covered the lid with elephant skin wallpaper & added the elephant head. 

I found the rock art at a small art shop in Klerksdorp. There is so much you can do with the rock art & its really not expensive. I'm busy with a frame using the rock art hopefully I can share this with you later today.
