The Teachers Gifts.

This year I made 7 thank you gifts for my children's teachers and teaching assistants. I kept them all the same just changing the colours on the cards to coordinate with the box.

I made the 2,5,7,10 box tutorial from here and it was lovely and easy to do and very quick to assemble.
The  owl's were created using  a stampin up two step owl punch and owl stamp, the branches are from the two step bird punch and it was finished off with a silvery moon. The boxes were filled with bath bombs and soaps from The Soapy Cauldren

My New Craft "Space"

My lovely husband has created a craft "space" for me in the loft, it has taken 9 months for him to compete it and I have to say I love it, it is just an oasis of calm up there,  we kept it white to keep it nice and bright, and I just added black accessories

This is the main view as you come up into the loft lots of space and we have used Ikea furniture to kit it out,

The desk which has so much room on it I used to use a laptop table in the bedroom we also got the rail thing, which holds most used tools, glues, stickles and my prisma colour pencils,

And finally some white expedit units to hold everything else, such as papers, stamps, punches and there is a box just for my daughter so she can craft with me as well.
