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.

Hello folks

Been a good few weeks since I popped in. Been rather busy, have had a few commissions to do and haven't watermarked my photos yet.  I would love to just load straight up to my blog or my facebook page but unfortunately there are people out there that like to claim your work as their own and I prefer to have my watermark on my work when possible.

I've had father's day cards which I made but forgot to photograph before. I made a beautiful simple peacock card using a free embossing folder that came with a magazine and forgot to photograh that too.... Shame it was lovely. I gave that to our receptionist at work for her birthday.

I've made a mini display cupboard using an idea from Dreamees, a Graze box and their Templates & More cd which I think looks brilliant (even if I do say so myself).  In fact here's the photo for that one...
 The image on here is Starla from Krista at Saturated Canary (as you will know by now one of my favourite ladies).

The paper and the flowers and everything else on the front here are from the Dreamees cd.

I decided as I had a lock on the front I should also have the hole on the inside and the key (also Dreamees)
The inside here I've filled with a variety of bits and pieces. Top left October Calendar (with my birthday highlighted) from Dreamees, a few little hearts and a glass vial full of fairy dust, I believe Dreamees also sell empty vials ready for you to fill as you wish.

Top right a few flowers from my stash and "kiss the stars" from Regan Kubecek available from Queen Kats Stamps another of my favourite ladies.

Bottom left (more flowers from my stash) a wee bicycle, a butterfly and "Bianca Bouquet" from the Gorgeous Girls cd from Dreamees.

Bottom right all Dreamees except my flowers again. You may notice a few pearls dotted about all over the place, these are liquid pearls also available from Dreamees. (I think I should get commission here....lol) xx

I love it! Thanks Hayley for the idea.  I'm entering this one into the Inky Chicks Anything Goes Challenge x

I also made a batch of what I class my simple cards (basic matt & layering) to restock for a charity event this coming Sunday afternoon.

I've also got a moneybox and couple of hangers required so I'll be cracking on with those between now and then.

Thanks for calling by

Love n Light

Clare x
