Hi, I'm Debbie and welcome to my blog. I'm a mom to the sweetest boy and angelic girl, a full time Mom and a part time crafter. I love anything creative, but alas time does not allow me to participate in all my interests. I enjoy card making, baking, cake decorating and sewing. I hope you find something here that will inspire you. Many of my projects have been inspired by other very talented crafters. I love to learn new things - so please feel free to leave a comment.

Felt ornaments - a few more gifts

Boxes have arrived today - excitement for the move and dread of having to pack everything up! My craft room is going to take quite a while........
WHERE are we going to put all the boxes???

I have some more photo's of felt gifts that I made for Christmas. The named ones are for a friend and her family and the hearts and circles for O's teachers at school.


The gingerbread men were cut using Sizzix die, the ornate bauble is Marianne Designs and letters for the name are MFT. The circles are spellbinders.

 
 
Most of the dies used were MFT and the flowers and ornate star/bauble are Marianne Designs.
 
I do battle getting lots of nice colours of felt. I have not ordered on-line, as truthfully, I would probably buy some in every colour (restraint and patience are not virtues of mine)! I do like physically touching and feeling what I buy, and then like to have it immediately............
 
Below is a photo of what will eventually be my "diva den".
 
 
 
Still huge amounts of work to be done, so don't know how often I will get to post in the next two months. Wish me luck!
 
Hope you all have a blessed Easter and get to spend some quality time with family and friends. Take care x

Just popping by to say HI! and a Thank you card...

Hi there everybody. Sorry I have been gone for so long. August last year we had a visit from my folks. It was 5 wonderful, amazing and special weeks. The rest of the year flew by with my stepson visiting for Christmas and house hunting.

Happily we have finally bought a house (we hope...this UK house buying is the most stressful system ever) and are hoping to move in April. The best part is I will have a nice size room as my diva den - whoopee. It is a Victorian property which does need work doing to it, but this will be completed over the next few years when funds allow. The period features are beautiful and we are so looking forward to making this our forever family home.

I have been quite busy with cake orders, so the card making and sewing have taken a back seat. I am hoping to post some of the creations soon, but they will be slightly cake decorating heavy as this has been the majority of my crafting.

I  am home-obsessed at the moment. Most of my pins on Pinterest are home related and I seem to be searching for an elusive warm grey to paint our new living room. Sigh......patience is not a virtue of mine and I want everything done and dusted yesterday.

Finally - this is the card I made for the teachers at O's nursery last year. The forest school there was the reason we chose it, so I wanted a 'nature" theme.




I hope to be around blogging more often this year. Would love to hear from you guys.
Take care
