Brace yourselves - I will mention the C word throughout this post !

For some folks Christmas is the most exciting time of the year - me included in that and as you know I have been heading to Claxby for the last 4 Novembers which has been some of the most fun times of my life.
I have gone on so much about the magic that is captured on these weekends I have been asked to do one near to home.
Amazingly its almost full already with only 4 places left!
I shall still be heading to Claxby as usual as those ladies are like my family now and the time together is so special I cannot find words to describe it.
So much fun ahead.

Happy times x

So proud.........

 of my crafty club ladies. This weeks project was so far away for some of them but they embraced the idea and went with the flow - to stunning results.
 As I have been so busy of late 3 of the ladies have stepped in to take the lead on some classes and this was Pams week. Pam is an experienced crafter and knows most of the techniques having seen them do the rounds two or thre times in th time she has been a crafter so all of the ladies took advantage of her expertise and also some cheaper alternatives from the DIY store to consider.
 Look how beautiful they all are and so very different.
 The only thing recognisable for these mirrors to have come from Ikea is there shape!
A really lovely day - Thanks Pam xx

Good old Ikea

Where would be crafters be withour Ikea mirrors to alter? With unlimited ways to do it - its always a fab crafty project to suit the budget concious amongst us.
This is a result of a playday with a couple of my crafty chums and an experiment with cheap polyfilla instead of texture paste. I love the soft feminie colour which is moonlight from the fresco range at Paperartsy. Teamed with some Tim Holt and Fiskars stamps a little lace, flowers and liquid pearls its a transformation from its plain mirror status.
Will show you what my chums did next time xx
Hope all is well with you blog buddies - thanks for stopping by xx
