Lot's Happening Over At DCS

Hi everyone,

Things have been really hectic lately with my new online craft store (which is a good thing) & I haven't had much time to create any new projects. However, I have been dabbling in designing a mini album which I will be sharing with you in the next week or so.

I'm so excited to tell you that the Dreamtime Craft Supplies Inspirational Challenges will be starting on Tuesday 8th March :)  I would love it if you were to come & join us :) It will be a lot of fun!

There is some blog candy to celebrate the new challenges which you can find here.

I will be back next week to share my new design with you.
Have a great week everyone xx

My Project Monday #2

It has been a great week so far! Mind you it's only Tuesday :)
We are supposed to be having rain all week so I think it's a great time to get some crafty things happening.

This year I have promised myself to get a lot of my un-finished projects completed as I have quite a few stored away that I have been meaning to finish.  You can read more about it over at Dreamtime Craft Supplies blog

I am going to take part in this weeks My Project Monday over at DCS by working on a project I started back in 2014!  Yep, it was a while ago but I did put a lot of work into it before putting it away. I didn't finish it as I moved house that week.

I started making a little album. I wasn't too sure what I was going to do with it after putting it together but it was something completely out of my comfort zone & I had never created anything like this before. I was & still am quite happy with the way it turned out hence why I kept it in my cupboard & planned to complete it one day.  Well, finally that day is here.

My Mum's birthday is in April & I would like to have it ready by then to give to her as a birthday present. She hasn't got a creative bone in her body nor the patience but she loves the projects that I design. Maybe one day she will sit down with me & try her hand at paper crafting. Hmmm probably not lol. One can only hope :)

I went through two boxes of old photos that I had stored in my wardrobe & wow, so many I threw out! Just ones that were way too blurry to rescue, scenic ones that I can't even remember where I took them & animal pics from Zoo's that we went to when the kids were young that simply have no relevance to us now & they are all probably dead by now anyway...horrible thought but more than likely true.

I remember when I first created the album that I had the intention of creating it with as many paper & embellishment scraps (which I call challenge pieces) as I could. For my challenge pieces I have three different containers full of odds & bobs that I feel could come in handy one day (more on that another time), so I dug through it & found a few pieces that I could possibly use on the first page of the album.

Hopefully, it will all come together nicely.  Wish me luck :)

Thanks so much for visiting & why don't you join me in My Project Monday? Surely you have some un-finished projects that you have been meaning to complete? Go have a look, I bet you do. I challenge you :)

Happy crafting
