The header is what I see in front of me each day I craft. You may notice a familiar theme amongst the bits and bobs on my shelves. I do love all things British - The Union Flag fills me with pride. I am very Patriotic and I am also a Royalist.
The bits and pieces here have been collected over the last 15 months or so when we were all flying the flag for the Jubillee and the Olympics and Para - Olympics.
I love the pale blue tins and was cross I only bought 2 - they were from M&S and at the moment are filled with lace one with white the other cream. They also happen to fit 12 distress inks nicely inside - perfect for travelling !
In the shelf above is another fab tin find from our local Market here in Skipton and was filled with fudge. Thankfully Megs took the fudge with her to the cinema with friends or I would have scoffed the lot!
You will also see a triptic ATC on that top middle shelf. thats a few years old now and was made by the talented Katy Harrison who works at my local Samuel Taylors shop at Embsay - i love those quirky basic grey characters and its still makes me smile.
To the left are a variety of tins, charity shop finds and also the dish was a gift from my Mum, the piggy bank from my sister and on the bottom shelff the zentangled bird was made by my lovely friend Liz.
Behind the bird are a few reels of ribbon - they are everywhere in my raft room I am surprised I can find any at all !
At the left side is a Kelly Rae wall art block - given to me by another friend Jacci, who also bought the Fortnam and Mason tea tin and the coasters in a tin.
Just behind the tea tin is my Jubilee flag book - a class I taught last May which was such fun. Yes 2012 was such a memorable year !
Back to the top left shelf and the cute snoopy tin was given to me by my Snoopy loving friend Liz who zentangled the bird.
I only got my own craft room last year - up to then I shared a room with my Mum - but I didnt just become cluttered - it was definately inherited! Mum has as much stuff as I do so we outgrew the shared space. When my eldest son left to do his Masters it was the perfect opportunity to spread into the box room that had been his. So thats where I am now. One day if I tidy a little I may walk you round my cluttered space !
Thanks for stopping by. Its my 47th birthday tomorrow so I am visiting friends and celebrating with family.
Back with some creations soon x
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
