A Crafty Space

Saturday, 25 October 2014
Hello friends
While I am recreating my new craft space I thought I would share photos of
Toni's beautiful crafty cabin.
This is what Toni has to say about her special place...
"My hubby fully insulated the building with MDF and insulation and we had full electrics fitted too so it's very cosy in the winter and beautiful 'to be in the garden' in the summer. It also means I can just shut the door on the mess if I'm in the middle of a project and don't want to clear it all away."

I'm hugely impressed with how much Toni has put into her space,
so tidy and organised - it has really inspired me to utilise every surface, put up shelves etc.
Also love the outside lights... I think I 'need' some of those.
Thank you Toni for sharing your brilliant space with us all.
It's not too late to share your craft space/room/cabin/dining table!
Please send along your photos to
More sorting today and then dressing up for the Youth Achievement Awards
event this evening.  It's a lot of work getting togged up - hair, nails, altering my dress -
good job I don't do posh often!
Take care friends - enjoy your weekend.

Friday Die Day...Giveaway!

Friday, 24 October 2014
Hello friends

This Friday is a Die Giveaway Day and as Halloween is looming
I have themed dies to send out to two lucky winners.

Jack O Lanterns

and Candy Corn

Really simple, just make sure you are a blog follower and leave a comment.

If you celebrate Halloween it would be nice to know what you do.
When the boys were younger they used to dress up and go trick or treating,
they would come home grinning from ear to ear with their goodies -
there were a lot more treats than tricks!

Have a good weekend, as soon as I'm organised normal FDD's will resume!

Take care friends.

Hello friends

It's been a busy few days and I'm a little relieved to be going to my City  job today and tomorrow 
for a little rest! 
The shop is emptying, it has been a case of loading up cars and ferrying it into the cabin.
Everything has been overseen by Bella!
Before the dividing wall goes up (between stock room and craft room) we thought it best
to see how much space was needed for each.
This is the stock room end, still quite a lot to go on those shelves!
The big move (my craft room!) is on Sunday but before then Elliott and I 
have a special event to attend....

Elliott has been nominated for a Youth Achievement Award so we are getting all 
dressed up for a evening out.  Elliott has a new suit and I purchased a dress!
Any of you who know me will appreciate that is a rare thing - 
my shopping is normally craft related only!
I will be taking photos.

Take care friends, I will be back soon and normal craft blogging will resume shortly :)

Winner and Spiders!

Tuesday, 21 October 2014
Hello friends

Today announcing the winner of September's Charity Kit!
Rush and check your tickets - the winning number is ....

If you are the lucky winner - congratulations! 
Please drop me an email -
A parcel of goodies will be sent out including dies, stamps, adhesive and more!
There are still some September kits left just in case you would like to purchase,
details are here :)

Kitty asked yesterday whether the cabin might be a haven for spiders...
well I'm pretty sure it is going to be spider free, all the windows and the door are double glazed,
 but just in case one or more decide to join me I truly do not mind, 
I'm not at all scared of spiders.
If it were wouldn't see me for dust!

In the midst of organising, sorting, packing and general manic(ness!) there are
some things that just cannot be ignored - Bella walking!
Yesterday morning the weather was lovely, in the woods the sun was shining 
through the branches creating a dappled effect, 
the paths are strewn with colourful leaves and conkers and,
Bella will testify to this - we espied 6 squirrels!
Bella-walking puts me in a happy mood and she's always delighted too!

Take care friends, I will be back soon...
(once I emerge from packing boxes!)

In the Pink!

Monday, 20 October 2014
Hello friends

Hope you all had a good weekend, a busy one here.

A project for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today, a pink card to
commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I've used the 3D Foam Hearts for the central feature.
 The very pretty papers are Graphic 45 - Botanical Tea.
All the details are here and if you can please leave a comment on the Crafty Power Blog
I would be really grateful.

The wood treating of the cabin has begun...
it is nice and natural.  
Vinyl flooring purchased and that is also down, more photos to follow.
The next task is moving stuff out of the shop into the cabin, the expression
"quarts into pint pots" springs to mind! 

Take care friends, I'm back soon.
