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

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
