Crafting overdrive!

What a very busy crafter I have been this week. Lots of makes ready for a craft fayre this Saturday & some birthday goodies for my niece who turns 16 on Saturday.
These are are just a few of the makes I have finished....(well the only ones I've photographed so far).

I have made so much in the past week my brain is in craft melt down. Am sick of the sight of bloody sandpaper lol....gone through a full pot of matt multi medium & blue chalk paint & 3 rolls of double sided tape!
Tomorrow there is no time to craft time....I have to clean up all the mess I have made & catch up on all the housework 😢.

Until next time.....catch ya later special Llama's.

Pop up A4 box card

I was asked to make a first birthday card for a friends little girl....she wanted vintage lace & pearls....
Something pretty & OTT.
This is what I have done so far.....I may add sticks & bunting to the back to give more height & possibly add the name.
Not quite sure yet.
I think there is something not quite right about it.....but I am never happy with alot of cards I make lol....

I have done some serious crafting in the last hour.....finished off a load of letters, & made these stands for the cupcakes I made a few days ago. I have other plans in mind for these stands....just need to find the time to play again.

Curiosity box

With all the rain we have been having here in Cardiff I have been getting down to some serious crafting......
I am loving doing some vintage stuff again...
Here are some pictures of a curiosity box that I finished today. It is a glass fronted wooden box, which I added some vintage papers to & filled with some bits & bobs that I had in my stash. I may add a few more bits to it in the future but for now it is finished.
Over the next few days I have to cover more letters, & make some birthday cards for family, but after that I  get to play. 
Speaking of which, I have to go & finish sealing some of said letters now. I won't be sharing these as you have already seen the super hero letters, I will however share some initials that I have made for my nieces. Will try & do that tomorrow.

Sneaky peak....

Just a quick post tonight....its late & I am in need of a long soak in a hot bath & rid myself of the stresses of the day.

I am currently working on around 10 different pieces at the moment, some commissions, some gifts for family & some items for craft fayres.

Being busy is great, but exhausting lol.

This is a little teaser of one of the craft fayre projects. I should get them all finished by next weekend (fingers crossed).....will share all with you then.
Until then have a good weekend & I'll catch you later special Lama's.

Another pop-up box card

Two posts in one day! Shocker.

Just finished another pop up box card & thought I would share it with you.
I love the Santoro Mirabelle collection. To be honest I have been so busy with other things that I forgot all about it.
Will have to come up with new ways to use it......maybe a mixed media piece? Not sure....will have to have a think about.

I am off to wash the paint & glue off & pootle off to bed...its 10pm & I have a busy day tomorrow.

Until next time....catch ya later special Llama's

A little sneak peek of something shabby

Morning all. Woke up this morning to rain & thought to myself what a great excuse to stay at home & get crafty.

This is a little peek at what I have been working on. Lots still to be done, but it is coming along nicely.

The sun is starting to shine now, so I am off out to get the shopping over with so I can get back to a bit of creative happiness.
