My Craft Table

Thought I'd share a picture of my (messy) craft table :) The Order of the Opus Gluei nudged us for a picture of our craft tables, as-is, without any beautification! Mine's always, always messy. It was me who argued with husby darling about not needing a very large table while he insisted otherwise. So glad I married him! He's way smarter :) The table offers a very generous working space and I still seem to need more! Or maybe I just need to be more organised, well...Pictured here is only a portion of it!

Happy crafting!

More Card Sets

Card sets are fun to make. I like sticking to simple layouts so making several of them is a breeze. Crafting for me is like therapy. And these sets are a blessing when I'm not particularly feeling very upbeat. As I trim, fold and stick, card after card, all annoying and nagging thoughts seem to disappear into the distance and an unusual calm sets in. Wow! It does sound so intense when I put it like that, but to me it's quite simple - crafting hits just the right spots :)

They're on my Etsy store.

Happy crafting!

Quick 'n' Easy!

This project was so much fun and was really easy! I love taking pictures - at home, on a holiday, on a special occasion...I'm mad about photographs :) I love having them around the house. They make me smile, they bring back beautiful memories and add a great personal touch to home decor. So I made a couple of these. Now, they scream 'COLOUR!', but hey that's me! I love reds 'n' oranges and anything earthy. I got these packs of plain wooden frames from Ikea and simply painted them in my favourite colours. I used acrylic paints. And then, all I did was glue on some funky tiny faux mirror embellishments. ( I stamped the red and yellow ones)


 They now adorn the wall on our book shelf. Love them! More to come in that space soon :)

I'm sending this to Order of the Opus Gluei's Challenge #60 - It's as Easy as ABC.

Happy crafting!
