A crafting hide away, just bliss!!!!!!

Over the Easter break myself and my family travelled to North Yorkshire and stayed at a wonderful little cottage called Mill View Cottage.
The views were just breath taking, and on a good day we could see the sparklng blue sea just beyond the lush green fields, it was just amazing!!!

We had the most wonderful time, I could have stayed there forever!!!
My boys (all three of them, lol!) two kids and hubby enjoyed the fossil hunting, whilst one of the highlights for me, was finding the perfect crafting spot to while away the hours, it was sheer and utter heaven!!!

A big hello! and my latest mini album too!

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I'm a little behind on my blogging, but the last few weeks have been a bit hectic! My pc is on its last legs, and it seems it only wants to play when I talk nicely to it, lol!
We've also been away on holiday, we went to North Yorkshire, it was just lovely!!! The kids had a wonderful time fossil hunting, and I even found a fab crafty corner in the stunning little cottage we stayed in, oh yes, ofcourse I brought some stash! :)
We're just making the most of the last few days of the Easter hols now, it's just so lovely not to clock watch for a while :)
It's beautiful here today, the sun has got its hat on again, hurray!!! so I think we'll do a spot of gardening with the kids later, well we may as well make the most of it!

I thought you might like to see my latest mini, this was made out of paper bags, and my swap partner was Robin, in Ireland. The theme was recipes, so it was fun to try something different. This is the first paperbag mini I've made (and finished, lol!) so was really chuffed with it, as all the recipe cards slot inside :)

Robin has made me the most AMAZING mini album, she's a ceramic artist, so many of the little embellishments were made of pottery! How cool is that?!!! Pictures to follow, promise!

Anyway, here's my little paperbag album, I hope you like it :)

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Big Hugs!
