Quirky Bird

Hello
And now for something completely different! Joggles have a range of strangely compelling and very weird cling stamps. Their quirky bird stamps somehow capture my frantic mood, while I try to balance all the different aspects of everyday life. I've created a door hanger with the quirky bird #2 to warn anyone approaching the craft room!


For all of the details on how to make it, pop over to The Craft Barn blog where it is the project today. 

Wishing you all a few moments of calm in your day. xxx

Fanciful Plantation

Hi there
I have had great fun playing with PaperArtsy Infusions and the new Elena Zinski stamps for The Craft Barn theme this week. I managed to get myself very sticky in the process of turning a cheap £2 glass vase into something more exotic!

April brings the primrose sweet...

Hello there
The lovely mild weather we've been having where I live has brought all of the blossom out, making the trees look spectacular. It's the start of a new month which heralds the next verse of the Poem Challenge at The Craft Barn:

April bings the primrose sweet, 
Scatters daisies at our feet. 

Here's my mini canvas for April...and of course I couldn't resist getting those cute bunnies out again!


It's not too late to join in the challenge even if you can't enter into the months which have already gone. Why not have a look at the blog to see what other people have come up with for inspiration?

Bunnies by Night

It's 'silhouettes' week at The Craft Barn and today my project is featured. I've used the delightful Lavinia bunnies on a mini printers tray. For full details of how to make it and to see all of the projects this week pop over to the blog.



Tomorrow sees the start of my two week holiday and this time I have actually kept a few days completely free for some craft time. I feel like a small child on Christmas Eve! Watch this space there may be a flurry of posts...

Up the Wall

Hi there
Seems like ages since I've had time to blog...or do any crafting! Easter holidays coming soon so fingers crossed for a bit of time in the craft room.

Today one of my projects is on The Craft Barn blog. There's a very rare sighting of my husband in it! Please do have a look at the blog for full details of how I made it.




The photo was taken in Ostia Antica near Rome. We had a fantastic day out a few years ago on a snowy February day. We were able to wander around the ancient town, with hardly another person in sight, just a few cats. I would highly recommend it as a day out if you're in the Rome area.

March brings breezes loud and shrill...

Hi there
It's time for the new verse in The Craft Barn poem challenge:

March brings breezes loud and shrill
Stirs the dancing daffodil.

I couldn't resist popping in some March hares and a few little bird silhouettes. You can hear that the birds sound more lively at the moment, heralding the start of Spring.


I'll be checking in on all of the entries on the blog to see how you get on with the added twist to the challenge!
