Hello there Blends, I've been on leave from work for 3 days and only had a small amount of time in the craft room! I have made some DT cards in advance so I'm ahead of the game there. Sorry, this has ended up quite a long post! Cut to the chase and scroll to the card if you like!
I'm following with great interest the transformation of the crafting area of the very talented Kate Palmer. This has inspired me to clean up my own act, thanks Kate!!!
I've just added a very cheap shelf above my desk just two cane boxes turned on their sides and a plank of light ply wood across to add a shelf! Too easy, just using bits and pieces from around the house and lots more space. I also picked up two A2 craft mats at the Reject Shop for $7 each! Now most of my desktop is covered, slight overhang on one side. but lots of creating space.
Now all I have to do is keep it tidy like this! (to quote a famous Aussie movie....'tell her she's dreaming') I have some tv remote control holder boxes which house all sorts of little things, like small tools, my sheets of bling, rolls of tape, glue dots etc. I also have a little document holder which I have printed out DT and challenge info on it and at the moment it has my homework from the Online Copic class I'm doing with Mandi-Lee at CopicMe
I had a commission from one of the ladies at work for a Birthday card for a two year old and the only stipulation was it had to have a fairy on it! Well that one was right up my alley but as it was for such a little one, I didn't want one of the sophisticated fairies I have and I found this beautiful little Sweet Pea stamp in my collection from Conie Fong.
I used a lot of spica pen on this image to give her a really pretty sparkle without overpowering the image, I've taken a pic on an angle so you can see the shine on her hair, wings and dress.
I've also decorated inside as this little poem is so cute and just right for a two year old.
I'm entering this little fairy into the following challenges.
Flutter By Wednesday's ~ Anything Goes as long as it's a Fairy, Butterfly or Angel
Make it Monday ~ Anything Goes linky party
Whew! Congratulations, you made it through my super long post.
Cheers,Kasey ~ in Oz
