Its been a long time...

Wow its been quite awhile since I have posted here, sometimes our lives get so busy and the more we try to do the less we get done, I've been settling into my job and taking alot of courses and just living life. My crafting has taken a back seat to life the past few months but now that the sun is not shining as much and the days are getting cooler I will most likely be spending alot more time in my craftroom so there will be posts added here once again. I have thought about canceling out this blog and my photo blog but decided to keep them for awhile longer and see how I feel in a couple months about them. Since I am lucky enough to have my own craft space I am planning to spend alot more time in there doing what I love to do in my spare time..CRAFT! this space I guess...well that is if you want to. Love and light to all who come by here.

Just a couple more items to add...These are for the challange I set over at Charmed cards and crafts...One challange I set was to alter a canvas...requirements were to use paint of any type, use fibres and also use glitter..I added also 3 buttons to mine.

My second challange was for everyone to do a layout with ALOT of journaling, plus since I will be 52 to add either 5 or 2 of something and also to use chipboard. I really like the way both of these have turned out. Love and light to all who pass by here and stop to have a look. xx Tee

Dotties World Challange..

The challange for this week over at Dotties World is entitled "Christmas in June" and I decided since I have just bought the new digi downloads "Pixie Chicks" I would use "Holly" Pixie for my card to enter this challange.

I have printed Holly onto acetate and cut a window in my card stock for Holly to show through, I then printed Holly out on Saf Mat and placed in on the inside of the card directly behind the acetate image so when the card is open, there is another Holly :), I have also used lace to fame the window on the front of the card and used a digi frame from the same collection printed to frame the inner from side of the card. I have printed the front greeting from the Pixie chicks collection also onto saf mat to add to the front of the card.

My Very own space :D

Over the past couple of weeks Alan and I have been very busy making some changes around the craftroom being one of those changes. I have given this alot of thought and when I saw these shelving units knew immediately this was what I wanted...Alan made the work area with new kitchen base units and then a white work service which gives me plenty of work space to create to my hearts content :) The top couple of photos are of how it used to look....unorganized and messy lol and the rest of the photos are of the new area. Please if possible could you leave a comment just to let me know what you think of my new space..I would love the feedback. xx Tee
