MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Big Art Adventure challenge-altered box file

This weeks challenge over at Rosie and Linda's Big Art Adventure was to alter a box file. Mine is just A5 size... the A4 just seems so large a space to fill... and besides I didn't have one so easy choice :D Excuse the pants photos... I really do need to get a tripod cos for some reason lately every time I get hold of my camera I get the cobbly wobbles and shake like a good'un. A 'proper' photographer I will NEVER be... but you get the idea eh :D

Paper is Papermania and I love it cos it's all flowery and summery and makes me feel better about the horrible weather... mind you was glad it rained this morning... got me out of doing a boot Really need to de-clutter but will just have to fight my way through the junk for another week... ;-0

It's not difficult for anyone who knows me to see that I am addicted to bling... so what better goodies to put in my box... won't lose it now will I. I love chipboard letters too and I am definitely going to be using up some in the next few weeks... I've decided that all these things in my craft stash that I buy and then just look at are taking up too much space storing them and that I'm being silly hoarding it... what for I ask myself!!! Crafters we're a funny breed altogether if you ask me.

Wonder what you're guilty hoarding pleasure is... do

Happy Crafting
