Christmas 2016

I couldn't sleep the other night so after two hours off tossing and turning I got up and made Christmas bunting.

I have had these 3 fat quarters of fabric for years but did nothing with them till now. Cut out with my Big Shot,, eyeletted with my cropodile and tied together with yards of mixed Christmas yarn. Got around to hanging it up on the way to bed last night.

Start of Summer update - 2016 - I know!!!!

So far today we have had torrential rain, brilliant sunshine and more torrential rain - so a typical Scottish Summer day.

As it's a bit dreich to go out I am alternating between, laundry. tidying my spare room/craft room and updating my various web pages and sites.

The laundry is going well 3rd load on the go and tumble dryer going overdrive.

Spare room/Craft room tidying has been going for a couple of months now but now looks more like a bed room than a junk shop.

As a result I found the bed, cleared it off, dusted, turned the mattress and found nice fresh bedding.

I know the pillowcases don't match in the photo but I've found the matching ones now I'm just to lazy to take another photo :D




The Craft room part of tiding is what has taken most of the time but I've tried to use the Kon Marie method by splitting the area up and dealing with one type of craft item at a time.

Therefore we have my home made punch board.

I'm really proud of this especially as is cost me less than a fiver.

 Also my Ribon Storage that cost me nothing.

I'm using an old bookcase for storage of my Stampin' Up! Stampsets and some other unmounted and boxed sets.

The top shelf is holding all my buttons and chipboard letters

 I'm using some office paper storters for my A4 card, paper, patterned paper, vellum, pattern books, Stampin' Up! designer paper pads, magnetic sheets, mirror card, aluminium foil, shrink plastic and acetate.

I've managed to fit all my Sizzix Originals, Bigz and XL dies with my embossing folders into on a corner table with my alcohol inks, Art Glitter, Stampin' Up! reinkers. various unmounted stamps and accessories in drawers and ink pads in the green box.

 Next to that is the cube unit holding all my scraptooking albums, cardstock, paper and embelishments

And finally my craft desk and storage totes. that has card blanks, envelopes, glue, templates, tools, scoring boards, cutting mats, fabric, scrap papers, embelishments, stickers, fibers and books.


I hope you enjoyed a wee look around my work in progress.
as the sun has come out again, I'm going book shopping. 

Let me know in the comments how your craft rooms are doing.
