all in a row..... garland, I found a pic on katydiddys blog and got hit right between the eyes with my crafty mojo, so I had to get up and create it, although there is a wonderful tutorial on lauras blog for this, I went in blind with my papers, card and stamps,and made up my own templates. I chose to use the bluehill & rose garden papers from papermania as they matched the batch of felt roses I made last friday perfectly. I also got playing with my black and white pens to draw the windows and doors, taking inspiration from my paper artsey here she is hanging proudly in my hall :)

hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I am off now to pour a glass of red and get working on my birdhouse, happy friday peeps, hugs m xx

happy wednesday peeps :) 

hold onto your seats ladies it is another messy one from me this here we go all you lovely WOYWW's.  I do believe I have craft tools and chocolate in there somewhere, and maybe even a cat!  it is like a game of "where is wally" at the moment.

I will talk you through it ladies (I keep having to throw my head over my shoulder to have a look at the mess, my pooter is the far side of the room....whiplash!)

ok first up is the the little bowl there is pink, blue and white felt flowers that I made on friday night, I turned a few of these into hair clips, oohhh and I found my missing chocolate, thats my breakfast sorted!  Then we have a blank bird house which I am covering in cosmo cricket paper.

and up goes the camera to show you the top of the drawer unit thingies.  a couple of you ladies asked me about the photo collage so I hope you can see her in all her glory, I decided to create one big canvas using my favourite applet prints. link to the lovely emilys shop is here.

I realised that I never showed you  how I store my stamps, the white boxes hold my clear stamps, as does the boxes and baskets that you can just see in the end of the picture, there are boxes under the white table thingie that I dont use that often.

finally, at last I hear you all scream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I will finish on something quick I made this week, its above my pin board, it is a frame off a clock that I broke the other week, so I decided to keep the frame part and all its inner bits (for tim moments), I used my favourite sassafrass paper and a quote from the lord of craft himself  holtz, and eh voile wall art!  (and erm..... yes that is more chocolate beside the glass jar and fudge too, can you tell I have a problem???)

off I go now armed with a fresh cuppa to oogle over your desks!  if you would like to join in the fun swing by Julias blog, the wonderful creator of WOYWW, hugs m xxx
