Charmed I'm Sure

This week, the theme at Sweet Pea Stampers is "Charmed I'm Sure" whereby you had to use charns on your work. I hadn't intended on making anything this morning as may plan was to tidy my craft room ready to go to the Artisan show tomorrow. But tidying vs crafting - guess what won.

I used a white chipboard tag and painted it with Ranger Paint Dabbers. Once dry I stamped the swirls in black then added the white specs with another paint dabber. Added a couple of Tim Holtz grunge shapes painted with black crackle paint, some flowers and naturally a gorgeous sweet pea image. Then finished the tag off with the gem and enamelled butterfly charms at the bottom.

Crafty Storage Dilemma

I have been meaning to blog this for a while but life got in the way. A couple of months ago, I had some work done on my house by a builder friend of mine, and whilst he was painting one day, i stopped him to show him my storage dilemma. For those of you who have followed my craft room posts I converted this old brown manky wardrobe into a craft storage area - which was great with one big BUT... you can always guarantee the box I want is the one on the bottom.

A quick chat with my builder friend, a trip to homebase and a few hours later this was the end result - before and after pictures below. I am much happier now!
