Happy’s Bright Idea – Crafting with Keys.

Now I am having to go out and about sourcing food for the family, purchasing gas and electricity etc etc…I have been having a problem with my keys! you see I have such a big bunch of them and I am always fumbling around at the front door trying to find which one to use…

We have a porch door and the main door and what with holding umpteen bags of shopping and trying to find the right key! proves to be a rather tedious job…with a lot of  ‘pardon my french‘ words being thrown into the said task!


So being the genius that I am (lol) I have decided to paint my keys with nail varnish that I have purchased recently from Tesco, they have such a wide range of different brands and colours! I think I might paint a different colour for each key, or I might paint the letters of the said door on each key, so that I can see which is which in the dark…so say if it is the Porch Door…I will mark the key with PD and so on…I haven’t done it yet…but though i would share the idea anyway!

And whilst looking on pinterest I found these rather delightful pictures above, which inspired me even more…you could really go to town painting keys, even the old ones look divine…perhaps tie them with pretty vintage ribbon and a tag for a cute Valentine gift or paint a key and add it too a card or make a picture …ooh the list is endless!
Have you had any bright ideas lately?
I’d love to hear from you 😉
