Busy Busy Busy

Hi everyone.
Once again I haven’t got much done recently. The weeks seem to be moving so fast, not helped by the “bugs” that have been flying round our house. Its now half term week here so I have done a little crafting with the children and made a card for a challenge over on docrafts.

What do you enjoy doing with the children/grandchildren?

I am back!

After a very long time of not uploading due to technical issues with the site, I am now able to again!!!

I thought I would share a couple of cards with you that I have made over the last few weeks.2

Where has the week gone?

I have been so busy this last week that I have not really had the time to craft. Saying that I did manage to get a little gift bag made, and by little I mean small enough for a malteaster bunny or a cream egg.

Now due to technical issues on the site I am having problems uploading any photos, so I send my apologies for this, and hope that it will be fixed soon.

Determination paid off

I found some unfinished cross stitch when tidying my craft room and was determined to get them finished and made into something. I may not have succeeded with them all but I have managed to get one finished and made into a card.

Determined to finish

Hi all.
I hope everyone had a good weekend, mine was none stop as normal. Then this morning I went in the craft room to try and find my “book” embossing board and came across some cross stitch that I started a while back and never finished. It wasn’t just one either, it was 4. I am now determined to get them finished before I start a new project.

Have you had anything you start and never finish? Is there a craft you have tried and then tried again and never completed? This is definitely mine.

Craft room clear out

For weeks I have been telling myself that my craft room/space needs a good clean and some organisation. Yet every time I look at it I end up making something instead of getting on with it.

This morning I had a burst of energy, what started as a mess still doesn’t look much better, but it is a start and definitely more organised then it was when I woke up at 6!

How about you? Does your craft room or area get messy or are you super tidy? Does it take you a while to get on with cleaning it up? or are you like me and its never really tidy even after a good clean.

Scrapbook request

At the Back end of 2012 I decided I would make a mini scrapbook for my sister. It was to represent the first year of her daughters life, and would be given to her as a gift at Christmas. She loved it so much she has now requested one to show the second year. I thought I would share some of the pages from the first one with you.
