I'm back......

Long time no blogging!! Back to work last week and just haven't managed to fit much blogging in.... although I have managed some crafting - more details to follow later.

Thought I would show a few pictures of my craft room looking like a bomb site, one of my tasks for the holidays was to have a sort out and this was the mess before I started! I need to have my craft goodies out on display otherwise I forget what I've got!!



This next photo is after a bit of a sort out, I had so much stash out on the worktop I was running out of space to craft! Ages ago I bought a bar from Ikea to go on the wall to store my SU! punches on, however when Barry went to put in on the wall, he managed to find a spot where there was cabling, plunged the house into darkness and uproar with the children whose games had been interrupted!! The project went on hold for a while until we got a gadget to find out where the cables were and discovered that I couldn't have the bar where I wanted - what a shame, I had to make another trip to Ikea to buy a shorter bar, sadly some more storage jumped into my shopping bag at the same time so I have been having another sort out and it looks even clearer now, will take some pics and post them soon - before it gets messy again...



Here are a few notelets I made a while ago, that I haven't posted yet. They are made from the Playful Petals stamp set from the SU! Mini catalogue - I really love this set. Only available until September, which will be here before you know it.





I was playing with some scraps of patterned paper recently and thought I would jazz up some bulldog clips as they are so boring - here is one before I started playing....



and here they are after a makeover! I made one for each of us in the office at school.



Will be back tomorrow with a card for you.

Good to see you have tidied, I craft in the dining room so most of the time I have to shove it all anto the other side of the table to eat tea! I do pack it up for special occasions tho! Love the bulldog clips, what a cool idea

I just bought some of those clips yesterday so thank you for the inspiration Sam. If my stash isn't about I forget what I have too, makes a nice surprise though when I do tidy up!!
