About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Finally...... I get to post.

Hello everyone in cyber land. I'm so sorry for my 2 week absence life has been totally chaotic. We finally got the keys to our brand new home Friday and we spent all weekend moving. There is still plenty to do but the number 1 priority is measuring up for my craft room. Also last week we were all told at work we are at risk of redundancy. The shopping centre where our store is have given us 11 months notice. The whole city centre is having an upgrade and debenhams are moving into our spot and about 3 other spots. Very sad and difficult times for the staff. Oh well maybe this might be the push I need to try something different. Anyway enough of that I didn't share my DT post for Jones crafts last week......

I made the card base using my Martha Stewart scoreboard and a punch. Added the precious memories papers from Graphic 45 and a few other bits. Hope you like it. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the bit is sunshine we have today. Take care friends. I will be around the blogs in next 2 days xxxx

1st of the month !

Well hello there fellow bloggers, hope everyone is safe and well after the really awful winds we have had here in the UK. They kept me up all night Sun and Mon. 
Ok then is it really the 1st of April wow !! And Easter this weekend, I gave up chocolate for lent with hubby and can't wait for some on Sunday mmmm cadburys !! 
Anyway what have I got to share today.... My DT piece for Eclectic Ellapu, the theme was Spring for the purples, and here is what I made 

I used a hobby house topper and graphic 45 sweet sentiments paper. Please pop over and see what my awesome teamies have created.
So again not had much time crafting. My exciting news is I'm getting a dedicated craft room which will be kitted out from Ikea. The reason is me and hubby are buying our 1st house together. We have lived together for around 9 years, but we are now getting our dream home. Can't wait ! I've spent years dreaming of a beautiful craft room. Fingers crossed I can pull it off. 
That's all for now, take care and thanks for stopping by, it always warms my heart to think people actually take a peek. Have a great week xxx
