Finally got round to tidying my craft room - its amazing what I have found. I thought I will never have to buy another stamp again and then I found an etsy store [via Lyndsey] that had some fab images - so I bought just the one but the day is still young - I can enter it into their challenge. alldressedupchallenges - its a guy thing.
Thats what my blog is going to be - changed my title from margrits craft room to the chaotic craftroom as that seems more apt at the moment - I need to start getting crafty again. Its been such a traumatic year but I need to move on and I am hoping that by crafting I can find. my old self again. I know I will still have bad days but hopefully the good days will take over.
My niece has had a baby boy and so what better excuse to make a card - its not too fancy as I want the papers and image to make it stand out.
I can enter this card into the following challenges mosdigitalchallenge - clean and simple craftingfromtheheart - anything goes
I really do want to rediscover the pleasure i get from cardmaking and blogging.
It has been so long since I posted - I am surprised I have remembered my password. after the trauma of the last year I just want to sit and do some creating. So here is a picture I made - I have fell in love with Lavinia stamps.I can enter this into the following challenge; laviniastamps - add some glitter
There is lots of glitter on this picture - stickles and glamour dust
My niece Emma has just got a job - admittedly only temporary - its so difficult for young people these days - she has been to university but there are so few jobs about. Anyway she is also becoming a manic card maker as well - raids my stash when she comes here - i have told her it will be an expensive hobby as there is something else you need!!!
This card - as always-looks better in real life - it is decoupaged and a bit glittery that does not show on the photo.
Fab Mo image - can always find an image thats suitable there.
This card will be entered in the following challenge mosdigitalchallenge - mo's favourite colour[yellow]
Well i have not quite got round to having a mass tidy up - I seem to work well within my chaos, I have just been tatting today - finding paper that I had forgotten about. I was going to sort out my christmas craft stuff and then thought better of it - I need a full day off to go through that box. Here's a card I made earlier - love this cute little boy.
I will enter into the following challenges sketchsaturday.- sketch littleclairesdesigns- childs birthday
...since I last posted - my heart wasn't truly into anything after John died - but slowly I am getting back to a 'new' normal. I miss him every single day.
I am lucky to have met so many lovely people through crafting and go to two different classes/get togethers. This is a card I made at Sarahs using a new die - did not think much of it at first but now I think its fab - great for male cards.
So I am entering it into a challenge after many weeks away from blogging and challenging and hope that my oomph is coming back
SO SAD THAT I HAVE TO CHANGE THIS. My darling husband John who put up with all my craftiness and encouraged me to spend on goodies has died way too soon.[June 2013] I am bereft without him. I started making cards when I was having treatment for breast cancer to while away the hours. I always donate a proportion of any card I sell to my charity of the moment. I have 3 wonderful sons and am blessed with wonderful friends.
