Tidy Crafter - At Long Last

I told you it may take some time for me to show you the 'after' photos of my spring clean.  Shelves were bought - and stained.  Felt bunting made and hung, felt sorted into colours, buttons in glass jars, and a fab new cushion for my computer chair - I really have been busy.

I can now find everything - its just perfect.  Why didnt I do this ages ago.  I love being organised - now for the rest of the house!
Made these sweet little hearts to hang on my craft cupboard
Forgot I had these.  I bought them about 3 years ago at a Car Boot Sale.  They are a perfect match for my new colour scheme.
Decided to give the new table cloth an airing.  It has replaced the lilac spotty one - which I hated with a passion.  Ive got my eye on a red polka dot one when this has seen better days.  These are wipe over table cloths - ideal for when the kids are eating - and also when mum is careless with the glue!

I visited Dunelm last week - my fav shop ever.  I really could buy everything in there.  Such wonderful fabrics and curtains.  Anyhow, I bought a pretty new lamp for the conservatory, as the old one refused to hold the bulb for more than 10 minutes.
Right off now, the ironing is calling - not keen as its now 5.30 on a Saturday evening.  Im sure I can hear the bottle of white wine calling from the fridge - yes I really can - bye for now.


  1. Wow. It looks fab!!! I am re-organising my craft room tomorrow after spending and hour yesterday evening looking for a set of stamps I KNOW are in there- it ended with me in near tears...Anyway, enjoy the calm of the organisation and the beautiful creations I just know will come out of that room. I too can hear the white wine calling from the fridge but am keeping the utility room door firmly shut - the ironing can wait! xxx
