Wire Shapes - Pinterest Wednesday

Hello hello beautiful people =) It's that time of the week again for Pinterest Wednesday.

This week I had been thinking about having a play about with wire. It has been a while since I have done any jewellery making as I have been concentrating on coursework for a while, so it was great to get my tools out and have a play about with some wire.

I got the inspiration after seeing this pin:

I had a little play about this afternoon and made an 'E' and a 'Z':

Re-growing fruit and vegetables - Pinterest Wednesday

Hi guys, I hope you're all doing well =)

For this weeks Pinterest Wednesday post, I decided to try out something I have been thinking about for a while after seeing pins like these:

After I'd eaten all the leaves from my swiss chard, I decided to give it a go! I placed the base in a bowl of water and put it on the windowsill in my kitchen.

I left it alone, other than changing the water on Saturday, and here is a photo I took of it today:

Valentine's Day Card - Pinterest Wednesday

Hey guys, I hope you're having a fantastic week. The weather here is awful at the moment, high winds and lots of rain. Still, it's nice to have some snuggle time at home in the cold winter evenings with your loved ones, and with loved ones in mind, this weeks Pinterest Wednesday post is for Valentines Day.

I know some people don't really do Valentine's Day. We don't really. We (as I'm sure most people) think that you don't need to be told by the shops that it's time to show your other half that you care, for that one day... Saying that though, it is nice to take the day/evening out to specifically spend time with your other half.

We don't tend to spend any money around Valentine's Day. We might have a nice meal or take away at home with a homemade card and present.

It's with this in mind that I decided to make this card, after seeing this pin:

I really liked the fact that you could come up with things specific for your partner =)

Here is the one I've made for my gorgeous Husband:

Are you making anything homemade for Valentine's Day? We'd love to see it if you have! Let us know on our Facebook page or please comment with any blog links below =) xxx
