I Have Been In My Craft Room!!!...

 Hello!!! I was forced into my craft room by a BIG spider that took up residence above my seat in the living room,no kidding!!!
I couldn't settle so went in my craft room & et voila!I got crafting & couldn't stop!!!
My 1st creation was the above Home Sweet Home hanger that was in my last but one Ribbon Kit from Angel Crafts (luv these kits,they have a bit of allsorts in them & feels like you get a birthday every month,lol!!!) Papers are Echo Park,Life Is Good & they are reduced,really pretty papers.

This is my 2nd creation,a lil house,sooo cute!!!
I came across the wooden blank in my local craft shop & thought it looked interesting & it certainly has been,I'm on with a 2nd one now!!!
I painted the blank in Sand acrylic paint & daubed Mother Of Pearl,here & there,papers are SU! Springtime  Vintage & the bow is the matching Seam Binding Ribbon,pearls & linen thread also SU!
The lace is from my local market.

I'm really hoping this crafty spell will stick around,it's been fun.
Thankyou all for your kind messages too on my last post :o) xxx

Is There Anybody Still There...

I'm just seeing if anyone still visits my blog,as I haven't posted in months!!!

I just have no inclination to craft anymore,it's awful,I keep trying to sit in my craft room,but nothing happens.
I have even bought bits of new stash to see if it spurs me on,but still nothing.

I hope it comes back,as I really enjoyed my little hobby & enjoyed blogging.

I might shock you & myself and post something again one day!!!

Take care,

Diane :o) x
