Out With The Old ,And Kansas Inspiration
Inspired once again by ReNae http://crabtree-creations.blogspot.co.uk/ I made a Halloween banner, Not having the supplies ReNae used I created my own version
Of course once again it was made using mainly Sizzix dies
The moon was made from acetate so that a light could be put behind.
Last weekend after the recycled jean project I had a sudden urge to clear out and reorganise my craft room. I admit to being a bit of a collector keeping things just in case they may come in useful for some future craft project.
First to go was most of my paper scrap collection, which had grown to fill a large box on wheels.
I tipped it out onto the floor and picked out the best bits, and then filled a bin bag with the rest. I am not sure why crafters feel the need to save every scrap however small.
Then I started on the rest of the room
I find the easiest way is to tip everything onto the desk and then sort through it
one cupboard at a time
I have a lot of canvases for someone who does very little painting
A collection of tins
Vintage watch glasses
The sticky supplies need two shelves
It took three days but it was worth all the work
And I have to admit it was great to work on a tidy desk.
After the success of the craft room I decided to do the rest of the house,room by room,Once again I found the best way was to empty every cupboard and just put back what was needed.
Just the kitchen left to tackle this week, and then I will arrange for several sacks to be sent to the charity shop,It feels so good to have done this and I now even have some empty cupboards.
I have already mentioned ReNae ,please check out her blog http://crabtree-creations.blogspot.co.uk/ as not only is she a very talented artist,she also has a wonderful way with words which makes me smile.
This week she sent me yet another gift,this time it was butterfly and bird themed rubber stamps
Due to my massive clear out I was not able to try them out until today
I also made this tag,after reading ReNae’s Blog
Although it does not look like it ,the large accent is gold coloured foil.
And this page and tag is going to Sweden as part of a on-going swap.
