About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

A little more organising!!

Morning!! Well, what a fantastic Pick of the Week it's been. The 'Times Gone By' CD and stamp set is absolutely brilliant - and I really loved working with it. And it was really great to see both my mirror and bottle getting so much air time!!

But, there's no rest for the wicked - and I am still busy making lots of stuff.... but thought I'd just pop on and share another of those little 'organising' projects that I decided to do back in January!!

This one is a little pot to hold my pencils, pens, embossing tools, pick-up pencil, brushes, pokey tool, and quilling tool.
So, I started with a large, empty ribbon spool, and pulled one of the ends off. Because of the hole in the other end of the spool, I stuck a piece of card inside to prevent anything falling out! 
I then used one of my favourite colours of paint - DoCrafts Artiste Lagoon! Just love it!! I painted inside and out.
I then used DoCrafts free download - Dainty Swirls Collection Part 1 - to cut a strip of the lighter 'Leaves' paper.
Then I used a strip of the darker 'Floral Pattern' round the middle.
So, it was another of those quick, simple - and not too fussy makes. And works perfectly on my table to hold all those bits and pieces!!
When I find the time, I am going to make a larger caddy for my scissors etc - but it's just going to be a matter of when!!
