Coaster Desk Tidy

These were actually thin beer mats that I glued together to form each of the 4 sides. Then I used my cropodile to punch holes in and stitched together using rik rak. Each side has a different purpose 1. Calendar 2. Acetate pocket 3. Pin board (glued cork to the side before stitching) 4. Notepad.
I then took some large paperclips and decotrated to match
Then made a little post-it note cover to co-ordinate. I found some clear pens and rolled up the paper and put inside finished off with some matching velvet pencils that I bought.
Papers were 3 bugs in a rug and pink acyllic paint
Hope you like

My New Position

Wowww how excited am I to finally be able to share this news.

I decided to apply for the Bubbly Scrumptious DT, not really imagining that I would be accepted BUT I was!!!. I feel so proud of myself and have been grinning like a Cheshire cat ever since.

I was offered the chance to be a part of a fab new challenge blog Vanilla Sugar where once a month there will be a challenge that is new and exciting.

So come on over on the 1st of January and play along.

See you there

It's begining to feel a lot like Christmas

My craftroom has become the wrapping station and I don't even want to begin to tell you how messy it is, the floor has all but dissappeared!
On Friday we went out for our meal with the dog club (no the dogs stayed at home this time!). We were all dressed up and in the car when we discovered we had a puncture grrrrrrrr, so after settling the dogs with a pigs ear I had to go back in, in the warm , while Leon just about froze changing the tyre and he must have been cold cos it took him all of 14 minutes LOL
Jenny did a quiz and our team came LAST! We are official dunces lol We had a great time but my camera battery died and of course I had forgotten the spare!
I do have some very exciting news that I can't share right now but will soon.
Am determined to be ready for christmas this year so it's off to wrap the remaining pressies

Managed to do a little scrapping this weekend

I managed to fit a little bit of scrapping in this weekend as well as putting up the tree, well when I finally found the lights. We got the rest of the decs down and then Peggy bit the head off of the little drummer boy that goes in my musical tree grrrrr ,she's a pest!
Leon was trying to decorate the kitchen but all I could hear was him cursing as he dropped this and knocked hiself on that!! it was hysterical.
But I did get these 2 LO completed and even photographed, I'm amazed
The first was is for stuck sketches.
I used some scraps of my yummy October Afternoon pp and various bits and pieces from my stash
The second one is for 52weeks 52sketches sketch 49
I love the sketches over there they are so comprehensive and I often turn to a sketch when my Mojo is failing me. More October Afternoon pp and yes the 2nd piece on the right is upside down on purpose(I always felt a bit of a dunce at school so that is why I did it, and maybe you have to be in my head to understand that but hey ho lol)
Well another weekend over and it's back to the grindstone tomorrow yuck!
Toodle pip for now x

My poor poor bloggy woggy is all unloved and neglected, but my craft room is readying itself for the big move after Christmas into the bigger(well actually the biggest) bedroom in the house! God help the kids if they decide to move home again LOL
Have been creating a little but can't show yet but I have found a couple of pics that I havn't put up yet

Leon snoozing by the pool in Zante(not the best pic sorry)

A close up of the flower soft I used on the "GO" to give it a bit of texture
That's all for now
