Sorry Ive not been around,
I have been soooo busy and have soooo much to update, I will get round to it....promise...
Ive been to Paris to the fabby Stampin Up convention (lost the memory card) and seem to have not had a minite to spare!

I love Interior Design and have been out of it for a while but I have some exciting news to share with you very very soon....

One thing that has been keeping me from my blog is this little one...

This is Lady C she is such a complex little one, I often stare at her to try to see what is really going on in there....she is so mixed up, so anxious, so angry......its not fair for a little girl to feel the way she does....wish I could help more....

love her to bits...but its so very very hard.....

Fabric Fabric and More Fabric...

From the sneak peak here are my first samples using one of the new fabby fabric pack from Stampin Up!
I used Flirtatious 122335 ,Lovin it!. the great thing about theses fabrics is you get a generous 68.6cm 45.7cm which is a very big fat quarter.
Here are all the projects together. The middle 'cake' is a pin cushion and the little patchwork pillow is a lavender pillow.

This is a little place mat with very easy applique...

This is a little phone purse

An easy hair clip

And a very easy applique bag, if you cant sew but can use an iron this is the project for you...
iron on the adhesive fabric roll to the back of the fabric pieces, choose a die and put through your sizzix peal off the adhesive roll backing and iron on!! simples!

Keep looking for my fabricy treats!

You will not believe it...Fabric...oh yes!

Stampin Up are doing fabric!!
Some may know its my passion.....I love it, love the feel of it, smell of it, and love to have a play!
When Monica Gale asked me to do an Inspiration Station at training I was thrilled, sadly though its on the same day as Michelle Lasts (my upline) so I couldn't attend but I agreed to do a few samples with one of the new fabric ranges.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on it....Monica sent me the flirtatious fabric range which I love, I wish I had had more time to play but as you know I have my big crafty event on the 22nd Oct so its been a bit hectic.
Anyway I can show you what I have made just yet but here are a couple of sneak peaks...

Also I love the new storage for clear blocks, it doesn't come with the Stampin Up sticker, Ive put that on but doesn't it look cool?....

Tuesday, 6 September 2011

On saturday I was relly luck to qualify for the Stampin Up Leeds training day. I cant tell you too much as there are other regional training event going on around the country so I dont want to spoil it for anyone but it was great,lovely to seel lots of like minded people. I came bck with lots of lovely swaps and a goodie bag of surprises!!

I cam back from holiday the Wednesday before and told myself that to keep the pressure off I wouldnt do any swaps but I had missed crafting sooo much I did 35 quick ones!
Hope you like them...I love this colour combo..
One to the Freebie!
Here is my blog candy picture it is the aqua and ecru colourway and has a magnetic snap for a change.

Second Blog candy of my rose rings.... kind of a blonde colour

Im nearly back of freebee time!

hi folks, I will be back on Wednesday, Ive had a long few weeks thinking of EVERYTHING I would like to do with my Stamping, Bag making and Interior design.....

Lots of plans...

room to be finished...
so to start things off

I am giving away an aqua spotty bag and one of my rings, I cant post a picture but will do when I get back from sunny Crete!

OK this is the start.......

I had to paint the wall and put the rails and the shelf up myself!
The shelf is going to be for fabby samples, when I make them.

There are 3 clock, a bit posey but I used to be a clothing buyer so used to needing to know what time it is in different countries...
Ok the ribbon storage is not new but some of you may not have seen it, I love it!

Ok I love this bit, I have use sticky velcro to attach the glue guns so they just pop back in place when I am not suing them, ribbon scissors are hanging on a little screw. My crop o dile also has a little space of its own!

This room is our garage, I am very lucky because it is a double garage and a few years ago I had a window put in it so I have loads of natural light. The garage doors (a redundancy prezzie from me to me) open out so in the summer its amazing.

I hope you like this so far...


Some may know I am terrible at organizing....I get so far then give up, I covert everyone Else's crafty space, I drool over how amazing OTHER peoples rooms are.

I love the following magazine:

There is nothing better than a nice hot bath and a crafty storage magazine.
Here lies the problem...I love to look, read and dream about having a lovely space but actually putting it into practice is a totally different thing..

I have set myself a 5 day challenge and as the days have past I have realised it will take a LOT longer.
OK I am very very lucky to have a big space but if it was just a Satmpin up room it would be an easy job but I have a workshop that covers a number of crafts, the biggest being sewing....this is my business, my spotty bags have gone down so well I have actually run out! I am planning some more styles and colours for after the holidays.So for this I have 2 domestic sewing machines and a massive industrial machine and of course tons and tons of fabric, trimmings,lining and interlining.

I am also an Interior Designer so need to put designs boards together and have a drawing board and drawing equipment and A1 card, mount board and paper!

This is closely followed but felt making, machine embroidery and anything else I can squash into my time...

so to shame myself into action here are a couple of 'before'pictures......

I blush....

wish me luck!!

Teachers gifts......How Many!!!

When you are told to always check the School website for any school info, you kind of check the website....don't you? didn't expect the holidays to be out of the girls actually broke up a week earlier than planned!!
If that wasn't bad enough I didn't click that's the 'teachers gifts' had to also be made a week earlier! PANIC!
So I delved into the craft room,did a little research and voila....

When I asked Lady C I then found out between them I had to 16...yes 16....if the teachers like them or not I always fee compelled to 'make' something (hope they like them..)

Hope you like them, I lovely getting my trusty SU stash out.
