A Crafty Saturday xxx

Afternoon everyone

Hope you are all well out there in blogland?? What you all been doing?? Where is that sun gone??

Oh well, no sun means lots of crafty time heee!! Ive been busy this week catching up with orders and posting out stuff here and there, plus a wee visit to ikea on Tuesday got me a DVD case so I could display by promarkers! 14 DVD cases later, lots of white dots and my display was all finished!! That easy!! What do you think??


Not bad hee!! Thanks to the inspiration I found here and the I ♥ Promarkers for their fab help too!!

While in Ikea I took advantage of poor hubby and acquire some of those cute lil glass jars! the plan was to put all my papers/fabric flowers in them .......... Ok, kinda didn't work as planned!! I started sorted them into colours this morning only to find I had more than I imagine!! I still have a full carry bag full, that I gave up after seeing they would never all fit!! So I decided to fill them with Buttons instead!! I have more in an old Quality Street tin, but these ones were all over my desk so just sorted those into colours


Some of my flowers in wee trays

My buttons and pins hee

My plan is to sit tonight while watching TV and sort the rest! But at least my desk is not totally tidy and my craft room doesn't look like a bomb site anymore heee!

During the week, I've been busy making boxes for upcoming Craft Fayre's plus doing cards at the same time! Gotta have a nice selection of both! This is one wee card that I made that I simple love, I don't often say that about my cards but I do!!




I loved this stamp when I seen it a few months ago and was so "smiley" when my hubby got it for my wee Birthday! He's a wee star!!

I would like to enter into the following Challenges
Crafts and Me - Ribbon

Now I'm off to sort out the post for tomorrows Dream Valley Challenges, a fab new challenge for you all tomorrow! Hope to see you all there!
Have a great Weekend everyone!
