Craft Room Update

Wow, what a manic few weeks!

The craft room is now all nicely fitted out, just needs to be made to feel like home and then I will post pictures for you all to see.  It needs some finished crafty projects on shelves along with crafty stash in the cupboards and drawers.  Note to self - Must be strict and only put back what I really want / need to keep!

Follow up from the Glue Dots shows on Hochanda on 12th November 2016, here are a few pictures on projects I made for the shows:-







 

I hope you liked some of the projects, they were such fun to make.

If you missed the shows you can catch up with the 8am show when I was with Leonie Pujol by clicking here

Well its getting late now so will finish this post here but promise to be blog again in a day or so.

Craft Room Refit

When is a kitchen not a kitchen?  Good question I can hear you asking (or maybe not!)

Over the last week I have boxed up most of my craft room (sob) so it can be fitted out with new cupboards and shelves, it was such a mess and I am hoping when it's finished it will help me to be more organised.

Here is a pic of just one wall, I can't show you the rest as it is stacked with boxes and bags and I am so embarrassed by it.


As you can see a couple of the new units have been built, the top one is waiting to be put up on the wall, a few more to be made up, work surface to be added and job should be a good one.

Hoping it won't take long as I am back on Hochanda Saturday 12th November with Glue Dots, Sunday 13th November with Zauberperle and then again at the end of November with something else (can't mention what yet - ssshhhhh!!!) all sorts of playing do be done, I mean .......so lots of samples and prep for demos to make.

Off to stroke paper and look at boxes of inks while having a well earned cuppa.

My Own Little Craft Diary

Well I have finally taken the plunge to create my own little craft diary and here it is!

As many of you know I own Two Cats Crafts which has its own blog but wanted my own little craft diary for all sorts of crafts and things I get up to as me.  So you might see baking, cross stitch, sewing or any else that takes my fancy (keep it clean!).

Hoping you will join me for a cuppa and chat here and maybe some of my projects might even inspire you to have a go or try new techniques.  Step by step tutorials, reviews, hints and tips plus general crafty chit chat.

Here is a picture of a project I did a year or so ago using alcohol inks and a very unloved, yellowing phone case.

.

Think it was sealed with a spray varnish to finish it off, was very happy with it and used it for months afterwards until it was dropped and cracked which happens to the best of them.

You can also follow me on facebook to keep up with blog posts if you don't want to subscribe.

Off for a cuppa now.
