And I lived to tell the tale..

Its been a long haul.....trying to get organized but tonight in my lovely new office/Stampin up room I was nearly there...

I was just sorting my books in height you do...



I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry...I had even sorted out the spaghetti mix if 4 boxes of leads and chargers!!

looking at the picture it doesn't show the devastation on the me you cant see the floor it even took out the TV.

my mum sleeps here when she comes over and shes 81 so I have to count my blessings.

Swap time

This is my task for tonight after I have finished my workshop for tomorrow.40 swaps for my training evening on Friday, a room full of like minded crafters super duper....
I do love this new stamp set, I think I will go on and on with it has soooo many possibilities.

See Below my unfinished swaps are a couple of pics of the projects I designed for my fabby workshop last week, I taught 30 people!they were all so nice and I think they all enjoyed it.
I love stampin up stuff, you don't have to be an expert crafter , all the products are so easy to use and easy to put together to make a fabby design!

New tutorial

I have been to the Manchester Stitch and creative craft show at Manchester Central today....
The kids are back at school, I have been surrounded by stress so as I don't have a car I popped on the train...super....popped on the free shuttle bus....super... ready for a creative boost..
It was the worst show, half empty so bad I went round in 15 mins and left!
There was one nice stand I know the lady think its Dolly Cottage crafts but to be honest I didn't need any card and stampy stuff because of Su
I wanted inspiration and all I got was perspiration......
I did buy a load of cheep scissors for all my workshops from the 'every things a pound' stand (she says hopeful about Stamp Up workshops!)

I am designing my new office in the hope it will bring me a more business as I will be super duper organised....
I am still painting I think I have the spray from the white roller on my eyeballs today, but I HAVE to finish it.
Every time I paint I see another thing that needs doing, the cornice was a bit grubby, shall I paint it?? nah......well actually I now HAVE to paint it because 3 walls are white and as you know white makes old white look dirty and grey so on with the ceiling, cornice wall...ect ect etc

The Tutorial
I have been sewing FOR EVER and seem to have left this passion for a long long time, I trained for 4 years at Hollins on Manchester so should really use it alongside my papercraft obsession.
I can make roman blinds but just haven't got the time so...wait for it....I am going to COVER one!!
I will take pics as I go along to show you how i can be done..hopefully..

This will mean you can buy any roman from Ikea or anywhere Dunelm etc and use your own fabric

using making tape attach the blind to the window with a piece of the new fabric you want to use over the top to make sure you cant see through to the blind underneath

Watch this space for pics..
