A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Do you know what this is.....

shall I tell ya..... well it's my good girl handbag charm.  It started off with a matchbox which I decorated with a stamp and paper from Crafty Individuals.  I added a bit of bling with a fastener and beads and some lace edging and pearl flowers.



Okay so you wanna know why it's called my good girl charm right :-P.... well that's because I'm gonna fill it with sugar free sweeties and then when I go shopping and I'm tempted to buy chocolate and ice cream and biscuits and other fat laden monstrosities... I am gonna pop a sweetie in my mouth and hopefully deter myself from buying them :D


Then I'll be a good girl right....rofl

Well the thought is there... hope it works in practice!!

Have a great day
hugs

What a great idea. Love the matchbox, too. You come up with the best ideas. But it looks like you would have to buy some pretty small candy to go in it.
