Owl Tealight!

Good Evening Crafting Friends and Visitors, hope all is well with you and that you are all enjoying what life has to offer.
I've been away visiting my friends Dale and Stewart for a few days which was lovely, and of course it means getting to see Amanda and Kerr, and luckily this time around little Olivia who is Amanda's Granddaughter how is only 2, what a gorgeous little cutie she is.

Back now, and trying to settle back in, although I loved being away, it knocks out my system with my insulin, eating etc, so I come back shattered and it take me a bit to get back into harness again.

Pleased to say my boys were fine, both survived, but pleased to see me back.

I've been trying to get around the blogs to comment, but forgive if I haven't reach everyone, my fingers would be worn out, but I've spied your makes on my reading list and have seen many wonderful creations.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post, you are all so kind.

I have another MDF project to share tonight;

Once again from Imagination Crafts I painted up a Tealight holder with Starlight Paints and a little Sparkle Medium.  I took this down to Dale and she loved it.

Now, whilst I was away, Damian took Milo to the doggy nursery, which he loved and came home whacked. Here are a couple of photos of him at play, the staff take photos to put on their FB page;
 Milo's new Best Friend
Would take a lot to chew through this me thinks!!

I think this is a fabulous idea for pets, and although it's new to me the daycare centres have been going for a while. I think Damian is going to put him in at least once aweek, it also gives me a wee break.

Well folks, it's cuppa time so I will say good night and see you all soon, take care of yourselves,

Glad you are home safe and sound. I still think it is a hoot that Milo goes to daycare but what a great idea.
Love your tea light sugar - looks like something good for Halloween!

Loving your owl tealight holder, especially when it is alight. It will make a fabulous gift to an owl fan.

Good to hear hubby came back in one piece, mine is off to hospital for an op tomorrow.

Glad you enjoyed your time away Kate, it's always lovely to catch up with friends. Love the project, the paints really glow. Milo has really grown up, I think this is a great idea, keeps the dogs fully occupied no time to get bored.
