Hi Everyone sorry i have not been updating as much as i would like but work & children seem to take up all my time at the moment.

A few post ago i said i had been doing some secret crafting and here it is, this is the project i made for the August addition of the Particraft Magazine if you haven't already subsribed (why not).

there is a link to the particraft web site click on that and you can subscribe. i wanted to make a calendar with a diffrence so after some though this is what i came up with (after bouncing some ideas of my Dad and Partner) it always help's to get someone else's appinyon. so if you would like to get full direction on how to make this it is in the august Particarft magazine. so we are now at the weekend and between washing and house work i have wedding invites to do.

once i get round to some more creativity i will up date the bogg i may even get around to so some scrapbooking so many photo's not enough time

No Time

I haven't had any time to sit down and be creative, you see i returned to work last week after having 6 months off with baby George, but i have got a few card orders since i have been back.
but there never seems to be enough hours in the day, i have decided i need a fairy house maid so i can just get in from work and get my creative head on, as at the moment house work is all i do.
but i will post some new pictures on here soon as i have made another note book and i have loads more pencils to do so keep a look out!!!

The Obsession Begins

I went to the first Particraft work shop yesterday and wow what a day i learnt new techniques, caught up with old friends and made new friends and had a great laugh as well.
some times i think the meeting new people is one of the best things in crafting everyone is so nice and to put a face to other Partircraft demonstrators is great too!

so back to the work shop we made a fantastic Junkits Album as you can see i did alright but we did have a good teacher i had always wondered how the ring spine was removed with out bending it out of shape and that was the first ting we did. so this is were the obsession has begun after my success with my junkits album i wanted to do more on my way home from the workshop i popped into Tesco and they have some good note pads just ready to be transformed.

so here is one i did today!! its actually for my dad part of his Christmas box it is a sketch book as he draws. (lets hope he don't decide to have a look at my blog) i was really please with the out come (hope he likes it). i now have 4 more to do.

Creativity at Last

I Have finally got around to actually doing something creative, see i was away camping last week and now son number 1 is on school holidays, and to top it all off i have to go back to work on Monday after having 6 months off. so you see this is were my creativity began i was shopping for back to school stuff when i came across this!!!

it is a plain tube with water colour pencils in it and a steel at just £2:00 so i popped a couple in my shopping trolley and whet on to spend a fortune on new school uniform sorry i am babbling back to creativity so i thought that the tube was just crying out to be transformed!! so i have a little play around and this is what i come up with!!!!
I have painted the purple one with cosmic shimmer paint and stamped on the with the fancy pants stamps after a bit of trail and error they cam out pretty good i also made a tag to mach the decoration on the green tube i thought they would be really good for stocking fillers or small gifts.
