Alicias fetish for shoes started young, granted she doesn't eat them now just looks at and wears loads of them. This is my page I started at craftden on thurs and have now finished, I love this house selling milarky tidy house guilt free crafting OH and before I forget one of the people that came to look around the house tonight said and I quote "I love the craftroom and I would love to keep it" Ann you were right a craftroom adds value to your house!!!
anyway babbling again bo bunny paper, punches, ribbons laughing & coffee all adds up to make a great night at try it you will love it. x

who won't craft? look at the mess

Not very clear pics I'm afraid but you'll get the idea,
This is Holly crafting this afternoon she was so impressed with Alicia's cards she wanted to make some herself so out came the copics the magnolias and lots of mess in my lovely tidy dinning room look at it. We have people coming on Mon to look at the house!!!!!!!! EEK!! major tidy here I think. Anyway these are the cards she has made today I had to wrestle her away to have her tea and this is a girl who couldn't see the attraction in crafting
Not bad for a non crafter but I think they are both hooked
Lynne( you had better make sure you have a good supply of both lol x

3 posts in 3 days is it a record?

This is a page I did from a crafty stash kit and sketch ,this included an old fashioned paper doily sprayed with glimmer mist and also and made flowers this was mighty hard work cutting out hearts by hand till the third one when I thought ... this for a game my fingers were killing me, so I cheated out came the sizzix and heart die and the Martha Stewart heart punch ( smallest flower), then I had to edge with frayed burlap and scrunch the petals not bad for a first effort but a bit of hard work needs practice. Now when I saw the doily I thought OH and not in a good way but actually I like it not that you can see it well in the pic , I think the only thing I was disappointed in was the lettering it lost itself I think.
Its called hard work and no play it was back in April when the girls did the garden for me. Sara and Holly were supposing to be moving rubbish and there they were playing on the skip they did laugh, you would think they were on a trampoline I was convinced they'd fall and break their necks.
oh Alicia has now decided she'd like some copics and a craft room at her house when they move in Joe has been released from hospital after fainting and incoherent babbling something along the lines of NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO lol xx

another craftden scrapbook page finished

Oh what a lovely day Ive had today,, yesterday we had the first people round the house so it was immaculate so today I thought chill and craft and that's what Ive done and its been absolutely brill.
I finished this page that I started on Thurs, now this time I was a good girl and stuck to the page Lynne set up for us, so many flowers I love it. I called it "my angels" coz the girls look as though they have halos over them, I assure you its a trick of light on the camera (no angels).
Then I did another page which I'll post tomorrow and then I coloured a few chrimbo magnolias with copics, busy busy but chilled that's me, only probs work tomorrow UGGH!!! lol x

have I got carried away?

This is my craft den layout its a pic of my mum and her dad at Broadstairs in 1952 how cool do they look I love mums hat that brims enormous my grandad is just walking along not a care in the world enjoying his cigarette. Now the page is not in its original form, it should have a pleated flower in the bottom left hand corner but it would NOT stay on so I had to improvise out came the sizzix big shot, I love this machine its so versatile I could not do without it anyway I'm waffling again back to the layout,I layered a sizzix daisy copic coloured a wrong coloured flower then smaller daisy topped with a button, I then got carried away making flowers and cutting out decorative flourishes.the letters are chipboard painted espresso dabber then crackle glaze then I had mix pebble espresso copper terracotta and gold to get the right colour brown!!!!! wow is it a bit busy oh well it might be but I love it thanks Lynne I would never have done this colour way but I love the vintage look, all sepia tones thanks for looking and I hope you don't mind the changes Lynne.x

We have decided to move house I love this house but its too large and needs some expert care and attention I shall be sad to leave, but having said that I have to sell it first (maybe here forever then lol) so Ive got to tidy my craft stuff up horror of horrors.
Ive managed to make three cards probs last for a while, need to keep house tidy here's my first a Christmas card coloured with copics from craftden, along with Bo Bunny papers and blonde moments sentiment stamp. The flowers have been cosmic shimmered.
