My name is Anna, and I work as a primary school teacher in greater London. I love eating pizza and watching TV with my husband. I also love painting glass, and any other crafty pursuits that give me a chance to make a mess! I am on a bit of a mission to learn how to cook, bake, sew and generally make things before I have children. I'm trying to learn something new each day. I really value your support, so thank you for following me xx

Handmade Monday

Hello all - hope you've had a lovely week. I've not posted for a while, as have been at PGL with year 6. Now that was a hard going week!

So not too many makes I'm ashamed to say!

Here are a pair of champagne glasses for a wedding:
I always find it hard to take pictures of white - sorry!

I felt like playing around with some lettering and had this idea. I thought I might do an angelic white wine, and a girly pink rose wine. Would love to know what you think!

Finally, I'd been wanting to display these words, somehow, by a photo of me and my husband. I found this little box of coloured letters and had a white frame. It says 'We'll do it all, everything, on our own' which is from a song which was playing during our wedding breakfast. I missed him this week, so I felt like doing something soppy!

Thank you for reading and have fun checking out Handmade Monday. I can't wait to read your comments. If you are a new follower - let me know so that I can follow you back.
