About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Scavenger Hunt 2015 - part 9

Sometimes in this life you just have to work out how to do things yourself.

#15 - A Flag pole with at least three flags on it.

Not having been able to locate a flagpole with at least 3 flags on it, I thought I'd make my own. I just knew I had some little flags "somewhere", so under the stairs I went.

I found the Scotland flag (top) in the first cupboard, but it took emptying out the old dressing up bin from the second cupboard to find the others.

The other British flags going down are the Wales, Union, England and Lion Rampant of Scotland (but I don't think this is a complete version.)

Then I had the task to get them all on a piece of bamboo where the joins were too thick.

So out came the penknife to whittle down the thickness!

Then where to place it for a good photo. Upright didn't work, but into the ivy on the fence at an angle was much better.

I hope this counts.

Used your noggin for that one:)

It definitely counts!
I love how this looks, and I hope you do, too.
Thanks for linking up.

Jane said...

I must admit I've been thinking of making my own flags too!

Cheri said...

With all that work, I would say it counts! Good for you for creating your own when there wasn't one readily available.

Very clever BJ....:)

Sian said...

Lol! If I had the flags I might join you: this is the only one I haven't got. Well done.

Nicely done and I like the colorful flags.
