New Craft Network

A quick post to tell you all about Creative Connections Not only is it a place where you have a forum, Blog, Can join with Groups but there is a live and busy chat room. This little piece of the net, has quickly become a meeting place among crafters. The only way I can describe it is a friendly and similar to Raverly, but for everycraft.

So have a look and see what you think. Creative Connections

This Week.

WOW! What a week, I have been decorating. My daughter is turning 12 soon, and starts big school next week. So we have made over her room, so it is fitting for her turning into a little lady. Its looking lovely. We have cream walls. Pink shelves and a tiny bit of pink on the doors. She has choosen a pink chest of drawers. Then pink sparkling lamp shape, beaded blind. She is then having a deep purple bedding and curtains. Oh and the picture she conned me into buying A purple flower. The cream carpet comes on monday and I must say I love the room. In fact I want to move in myself. Its sort of grown up girlie. Really nice. I of course need to do some sewing to add the extra sparkle. We are just going through all her toys and stuff now. Sorting and throwing. Its sad but we are packing the old toys away. I am ashamed to say she has about 10 of my TINY TEARS. LOL So I am going to bath them knit them some outfits and I think They will be ebay'd.

Alas, I have done no crafting again (well decorating is crafting). I am not sure what Stella has been up too. She had listed her quilt on esty, and was making another one last time we spoke - last week. We were talking about the next blog giveaway and we are swaying towards natural dyes as the season is now upon us for all the goodies from the garden.

Well, thats it. I can't show you any pics coz my camera has got sand in!

Ever fancied a little dolly look-a-like. Stella made these for her boyfriend (the bearded one) and his friend. They move! Honest until you see the real people you would not realise how alike these little men are. They are going to star in their very own Music video.
