About Me

Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
My name is Clare I live in Nottinghamshire and work in education supporting students as my full time job but like to make cards, craft and plan as a hobby. I have recently taken up arigurumi crochet, the perfect autumn/winter hobby. I have also decided after a number of years off to pick up my guitar and learn to play again so due to metal strings and crochet hooks the ends of my fingers are slowly toughening up.

Birdhouses - Present Boxes

I really liked doing these, they're not huge. The little one just about fits a Yankee Candle (votive size), the other one would be ideal for a nice bag of sweets or smelly bath salts/soap etc.  The roof is on a hinge with the small one and is totally removeable on the larger one.  They were both made with card I've had in stock for a little while and some embellishments I had from a friend (thanks Sam).

I love the cherry blossom one, I wish I had a room it would go with, maybe I need to redecorate.... :-)

This will be my second entry into the Divas By Design challenge "Anything Goes".
