The Craft "Space" 5 Months Later.

The last 5 months have flown by so fast, It seems like only last weekend that Andy finished our Crafting Space,  or as the children call it the hobby room, It has not changed that much we have added more tables to work on, another mat, and lots of storage drawer units for Andy's lego collection, so the children have easy access to it to be able to build.

This is the view from the other side of the loft, looking at my area,

My working area

The Other Table for set up for  my sewing machine, (or my daughters table because she has claimed it )

The Expedit units from Ikea, and a lovely space on top to store bits and bobs.

The boxes really do hold a lot of stuff,


The desk close up and the drawers hold a lot as well, and its all close to hand for when I want to use it.

This is the other side (the lego side) We are still in the process of fixing he bannister around the loft hatch so the children do not fall down the hole,

Andy is in the process of sorting out all his lego into the storage boxes, We all love it up here, It is a lovely relaxing place to be.

The Hallway Banner

This banner has been made using a silhouette build a banner file cut on my craft-robo, I cut it out twice first with card, and then patterned paper to make it more sturdy, 

The paper used was freebies from creative card making and all the embellishments are from stash

The flowers and snowflakes are a Marianne  dies,

The Christmas Tag Banner

Whilst browsing the internet I came across this banner which I love, This is my version.

It is slightly different and is hung over the fireplace and not in a window, I used the Craft-Robo to cut out all the tags and have just embellished them with a variety of  Christmas toppers, flowers and ribbons from stash,

I have also used embossing folders,

All the letters were also cut on the craft-robo,

and I used some lovely wooden ornaments, which cost 99 pence but I cannot remember where they came from.

Just a few Christmas Cards

It has been a while since I blogged, and with Christmas fast approaching I thought I would share a couple of Christmas cards that I have made,

These two use a gorgeous Magnolia Image coloured in with spectrum noir pens and the tickets were a freebie from the internet,

These two use an Anya stamp coloured in with spectrum noir pens, embellished with a couple of gems and some snowflakes,

and finally this one uses an image from bugaboo stamps, a freebie circle sentiment and some gold ribbon from stash,
