stamp something

and she made a card.................I spend 2 whole days clearing my desk and trying my best to reorganise myself and my craft stash..........with no money in the pot to go out and buy some uber perfect storage I had to use what I I think I have everything to hand that I need and all grouped together.  I have yet to get repairing my sewing machine....I feel so lost without it......and I have a vintage chair that will be my seat of creativity, that is going to get a makeover on wednesday when I get to buy some paint!

I made this little card with this weeks stamp something challenge in mind.....cherry magnolia papers and a cupcake house mouse!

 For this week's challenge, we would like for you to create something that is delightfully delicious! Get out all of your food images and accents to come up with something yummy!......................

what else have I too share................I am working on a crochet blanket, some more fabric stitching too, baking, my paint is finished and I have my handmade craft goodies on route to aj in america as part of the skunkboy craft swap.....I loved this swap sooooo much, you would not believe all the amazing talented that there is out there in our little world.....breathtaking!

have a lovely sunday! hugs m xx

I got a lovely award from my friend sandra, thank you so much hun!
I dont have time just this minute to forward it on,  but I will do this week xx.

here is a sneek peek of my painting, I still have more to finish on it, but she is nearly 100% complete, so will share her as soon as she is done and dry!

Happy new year!

wow what a christmas! how are you all doing? hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!  I feel like I have fallen off the planet....I did not go near the computer at all over the holiday season...I was all crafted out too so my desk is feeling a little abandoned..will have to give my stash some tlc over the next few days and get playing.  but first have to face a mountain of housework, washing, and decoration removing!!

I have two cards to share that are from crafty creations before christmas, I just did not get a chance to do blog post! shame on me!  big hugs m xx
