Something a Little Different

Promised to post these photos ages ago when I completed the room, however, better late than never!

This used to be my dining room and it used to be terracotta! I saw some ideas in Ideal Home magazine a while back and immediately liked it but thought "ooh, this is going to be expensive", however, then saw the magic word "Ikea" and off I went!

The wallpaper I got in the sale at Laura Ashley a few years back and all the furniture apart from the tall book shelf, is Ikea - got the tall book shelf from a local pine shop. All the other bits and pieces I've collected over the last 12/18 months. The larger drawers are absolutely ideal for storing wooden rubber stamps and punches and the tall CD/DVD units are perfect for my unmounted stamps and Nesties which I keep in CD cases.

It's maybe not to everyone's taste but I absolutely love the lightness of the room and all the "vintage shabby chic" bits.

** Just had a closer look at the photos and noticed my socks on the desk...whoops! **

lovely. I would so like a dining room so I could steal it for my craft room :)

My SIL put the idea in my head Caz as we have a conservatory off the lounge which wasn't being used for anything in particular, so I decorated it and turned it into the dining room and then decorated the old dining room and turned it into my craft room!

Your craft room is gorgeous. I have our dining room as a craft room and we had to have a conservatory built to house the dining table etc lol

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!


Here's the last of my Christmas makes...

Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...

...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
