Happy Easter and a clock.....


Good morning, I hope your Easter weekend has started out nice and sunny, its so good isn't it, heaven knows we need it.

OK, remember I said I wanted to make a clock, well I did, its the easiest thing ever, only thing is now I have done it I'm not bowled over by it, anyway, maybe next time will be more arty.

Quite simple, two circles of plywood, one has DP from the Range, glued and sealed with Mod Podge, the wood letters are from my stash and I just painted them the clock works is from Amazon, and btw it keeps perfect time. The back board simply painted blackboard paint.

Hope you like, I still feel it needs a bit more something, who knows but it does look quite nice above my desk so its fine for now..

Thats all for now, I am off to sit in the garden while we can, a quiet Good Friday for us this time round and we won't be doing the usual Easter dinner as my daughter Carla, has been so very ill, we were desperately worried, well I still am until I see her back to her normal self. I won't go into it all, but she needs complete rest, so easy days for a while.

I wish you all a lovely Easter time, God bless.xx

It looks beautiful Janette- very classy! Isn't it lovely to have some spring sunshine, just to be able to sit outside and enjoy it is a gift! So sorry to hear your daughter has been poorly, hope she is soon back to full health so you can stop worrying. At least you live close enough to keep an eye on her and make sure she gets her rest. Have a happy Easter weekend even if it is quieter than usual.

Oh, I love your clock Janette, probably keeps better time than the junk ones I bought from the $2 shop, beautiful papers and love the idea of wooden numbers. Glad you finally have some sun to sit in, we have rain today [Saturday] hope you daughter bounces back fast, these kids are a worry aren't they..enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend..

I think it looks so very elegant Janette and pattern is so beautiful. I am so sorry to hear Carla has been ill. They are a worry no matter what age, we just want them to be happy and healthy. I hope she is improving by the day Janette. Hugs Pinky
