My Craft Room, More Stash & my Handmade Smashbook :)

Hello to all my wonderful blog friends and family :)

It's Sunday and such a wonderful spring like day. Feeling a bit rough around the edges though, as we had friends round for dinner last night, and after a major house tidy and lots of food, drink and a rather late night,feeling very much pooped today. Oh well, thank goodness for chill out Sundays and time to recover, lol!

I thought today, I would share with you some pics of my Craft room, ofcourse I had to take full advantage and show you whilst it's tidy, as it is NEVER! usually this tidy lol!:)

I have also included more pics of my latest Smash stash purchases. Yes I know, more Smashing!! I really do have it bad! This was very naughty!!!

And finally....My handmade Smashbook!

Having recently joined a couple of Smash book groups on Facebook, where we share ideas and our love of all things Smash!
I noticed someone had covered their book in a wonderful whimsical style of a little girl flying above the roof tops and loved it!

So thought I would have a little go myself at making my own as she said it was easy to do :)

So, here's my version...

This idea was not my own, and has been copied so full credit for the idea has to go to someone else, but I did decide to add a few little touches of my own, like the little hat and flower, sparkles on her shoes and wings, skeleton leaf wings, chimney pots, my own words and a magic wand. I loved making the houses too, cut out of scraps of old paper, the little windows and doors are hand drawn :)

I have to say I really am so chuffed with it, although I think I need to practice drawing faces a little more :)

Anyway, that's all for now, hope you have all had a good week-end, back with more soon!

Happy Crafting!

Suzie xxxx :)

I so wish my craft room was that tidy.....

Roxy said...

Wow, I love your craft room so much - the wooden shelves and sunlight coming in make it so warm and cozy, and it is very tidy!!! I think Scrapbooker's Anonymous are having as their last challenge a call to post about your craft space, you should link this up!!! Anyway, can't believe your album cover, it is STUNNING!!! It really is fabulous, and I love the face on her - you are being overly critical! I stink at drawing, but I might possibly be able to do something like this, I'll think on it! Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, it's nice to have such support from everyone, hugs, Roxy.
