Alissa designs, FREE Easter set!!

Get on over to alissa designs a place a comment. She will then send you a free easter kit.
Alissa designs has a beautiful blog for you to ponder over aswell, so spend a while looking at all the lovely designs.

Tilda challenges

Over on the Docrafts site, we have a Tlda challenge every week. I've only be taking part in the last two and thought you might like to see the cards I've made for them.

The first challenge was to use the colours yellow and green, backing paper also gems or brads, ribbon and a sentiment. My theme was 'time for me' because Tilda is relaxing reading her book.

The second challenge was a 'Nautical' theme using the colours red white and blue. Including, ribbon or string, buttons, backing paper, sentiment and flowers. I have to admit that I am not very pleased with my second attempt but it was fun having a go and just being a part of the fun.

The craft room is nearly ready!!!

The builders have finally gone and my craft room is almost organised enough for me to move into perminantly.

My wonderful beautiful husband has been working his socks off to put shelves up and hang things on the wall ready for my craft stuff.

It wasnt until I started unpacking all of my stuff that I realsied just how much I have!! Where did it all come from?? How did it multiply this fast?? Atleast I know where all of my money has gone!!

I will post some photographs when I am a bit more organised. It's just a case of working out where to put things so that they are easily reachable. Being in the wheelchair makes it harder for me to reach things that are too high up so I have to think carfeully about storage.

I thought I might try using some guttering for storing my rolls of ribbon in. The smaller pieces can be wound around bits or card.

Watch this space.

So, have you broken yours yet?

New years resolution that is?
My new years resolution is to make sure that I keep my blog up to date, where possible and that I use my crafting room to its full potential.
I will endeavour to try new techniques and to improve the ones I use already that I am not very good at. (stamping, pricking, decoupage, dry embossing...etc)
I've already stocked my shelves with the required items to try new ideas and hope to be embarking on a voyage of discovery that includes, scrapbooking, album making, parchment and I promise that I will use each and every one of the Arty Farty templates that I have so foolishly purchased.
I also promise that I will sort out some blog candy and organise some 'in house' competitions.
So, belated Happy new year greetings to one and all.
Here's looking forward to a craftyliscous new year!!
Love Jennifer XXX
