Projects and craft magazines

Here are some recent crafty projects, the first two were layouts for Scrapbook Magazine and the second two projects for Craftseller Magazine. Both lovely publications, who sadly have closed their doors now and will no longer be on sale. I think its really sad that they have had to shut, not only for the great teams who work on them but for the craft market too. There is such a lot of content online now, that its not surprising that people aren't buying magazines, but I'm not sure that's a good thing! There's still something exciting about getting that new magazine and flipping through it for the first time, and then later on slowly reading each article at leisure. Much more than looking at things on line. Let me know your thoughts :-)

springtime organising

On this lovely bright spring morning I have been spending some time getting my craft projects organised, sorted and put away, so I thought I would post some of them here as a reminder of what I've been doing as it seems easy to forget them once finished.

Just seeing all the beautiful colours makes me want to run to my craft desk and create more lovely things!

I've also been taking part in the Let's Get Messy art journalling course which has been really fun and a way to spend some 'me time' just creating art. Here are some of my pages.

What crafty projects have you had up your sleeve? Leave me a comment and share your art!

2015 is here!

Happy New Year! Another year is under way, it always seems to come around so quickly and catch us unawares! I love the new start that each January brings and am full of intentions and ideas for the year, hopefully some of them will make it to this blog over the coming weeks. For now, here are a few things which are inspiring me at the moment.

love this Passion Planner

That's it for now, back soon!

Workspace wednesday

I used to be one lucky girl and have a whole room allocated for my craft room/office, but earlier this year we moved our older daughter into that space, to give her some space from her younger sister, so I was ousted from my room. I now have a corner of our bedroom, which thankfully is large, so I can fit in. It mainly consists of a white ikea desk and a white expedit 8 cube unit and various storage boxes. I do tend to get messy while I work, but it's a creative mess I like to think.

Where do you spend your creative time? Are you luck enough to have your own space? One day I would love a studio of some kind, but for now I'll enjoy my little corner.

Here's to a fun and happy 2014, but also a year with meaning, time spent well, love, family and friends.

Summers gone, but the memories live on

We are now mid way through September, settling back into school and work routines and trying to hold onto the last bits of sun and warmth and flip flop wearing! We had a great summer, good weather, not a lot of boredom and a lovely holiday in France. Here are some pics

aaaaaahhhhhh what a summer it was! How was your summer? Did you travel? Stay home? Let me know your summer memories.
