Tree trunks

When I was working, I used to treat myself to fresh flowers every week. After I retired it was an expense I had to cut back on, but I hated seeing my vase standing empty. I found a broken branch, painted it white and popped it in the vase. Then I dangled some elephant decorations from the twigs. Now I don't miss my fresh flowers one bit!

I put a shell on you

I had a large collection of shells and wanted to do something creative with them. I carefully superglued the shells together and arranged them in a pattern. Then I drew a face and flippers on to make a turtle ornament. I think it looks great.

Friendly works

It was my best friend Steph's 27th birthday and I wanted to make her something unique. I bought some Scrabble letter tiles, printed out a poem about friendship and put them in a frame. She absolutely loved it.
