It's been a while since I last blogged, no excuses, except that I didn't have anything interesting to show. I think I have now though.
A friend set me a challenge, this friend has set me many 'challenges' over the past few years & it's her way of kicking my butt into doing something creative, so thanks Missus mwaaaaah
Anyhow, back to my 'mission'... to create a notebook within a notebook. Not so easy, but fun to work out & then create. So here is the finished creation, would love to know what you think...

The papers used are from Papermania, Rose Garden, the rosettes were made from the same paper stack, a couple of very old buttons from my sewing box, a Martha Stewart border punch which was then distressed using Tim Holtz Walnut Stain. Then some organza ribbon in cream & pink to finish off.

A Special box for a Special person

Here is my latest creation, a plain balsa wood box which I then painted with acryllic white paint. Once dried, I then used a crackle glaze & to finish off the base, I used Tim Holtz distress ink.
For the top I used a flourish from my stash, a Tilda (coloured by a very clever friend of mine) & finally some mulberry roses.

Here's a little something else I wanted to show you...

Well what a lovely sunny day! Just a couple of pictures to day of what I've been trying to 'get up to' in my wonderful new craft room. Hubby has worked so hard in getting it stripped, painted, papered, then painted, carpet down & all my various storage into here, so I can 'play' 'til heart's content :)
I made this Valentine rocker for a challenge set over at it's a fairly new site but growing by the day with some great challenges & people to chat to. Why not pop over & see what they are about?

So Sorry...

I want to apologise! It has been so long since I last posted but many things have happened over the last months. The main one being hubby, animals & I moved from our wonderful house into a smaller bungalow. Why? Well because the medics have told me my legs will only get worse & a wheelchair looms on the horizon...
It also meant, as we had to move to a bungalow we weren't able to bring out Gorjuss girls with us, but I'm happy to say, they have a wonderful new home with close friends of ours.
BUT on the upside, it means I get to craft more without the feeling of guilt! lol So that's a bonus :)
Talking of crafting, I have been trying my hand at a few new things, these include Crochet, loom knitting & I'm trying to tackle mini-albums! You know the ones made from paper bags or envelopes? Well, so far, not good lol
Anyhow, here are a few pictures of what I have managed to create over these months...
