Hello all my lovelies out there. I'm sorry I've been missing in action but my little grandson finally came home last week so I took some time off from crafting & blogging & spent it with the family. We also had Payton for a few days so mam & dad could settle with Arjay. He is still on oxygen & requires quite a bit of looking after but he's doing really well, so proud of him ;0)
Anyhoo's remember when I said I had made 2 male cards, well here is the other & this was just for fun, I was playing around lol.
I have a bit of Elvis Presley, this image is a freebie & if you pop onto my Pinterest board you will see it in 'Free Printables'.
The papers are the fab Prima 'Engraver' & the ticket I also cut from the pad. I also cut the ruler bit from a sheet of the paper & stuck it to the side for added dimension.
All the papers have been stitched on my machine.
I love the colour tones of this photo.
I added some burlap from my stash, some screw type brads & the sentiment is a Cats Life one I think.
Now I thought I would start showing you some of my storage before I reveal the new craft room, sort of a teaser I suppose lol. Now my new craft room I didnt want just a craft room, I wanted prettiness, inspiring, warm & welcoming. I certainly didnt want sterile & boring lol.
This large glass thingy lol I have had for years & it was in the passage way on my large unit as a decoration. (I lurve glass decorations) Anyhoo's I thought as I have quite a few others I would pinch this one for my hobbit (craft room) & store a few of my laces.

Excuse the plaster moulds drying in the background lol, they are not normally there. The basket at the side I sprayed & that keeps all my lace offcuts that are too short to roll on anything lol.
In the glass I used dolly pegs & vintage looking reels to put my lace onto & secured them with small pins.
I didnt want to keep it plain looking so I went to my favourite site & used this sign & printed it off onto water decal & slid it on my glass. The site many of you will know, it is of course 'The Graphics Fairy' & there are also lots of her freebies on her Pinterest Board. This is just for a few of my laces just to add some prettiness to my room, she sits beautifully on top of that pine dresser. Yes thats the pine dresser I brought cheap, it got the Vicky treatment lol, but I will show you it properly another time ;0) There is something else to go on top of the dresser but its not quite finished & its something from the graphics fairy again. If you have never checked out her site............OMGoodness what rock have you been hiding under, this gal rocks........totally awesome.........its my most go to site on the internet..........yep better than shopping ;0)
Okie dokie I will go now but I will post piccies of Arjay very soon, he is getting big now & he's so gorgeous.
I'm gonna enter my glass thingy into BRAG MONDAY as its the first time I've done this & well............well I'm canny proud of it ;0)
Thanks for popping in my lovelies, tatty bye. Squishy hugs to all mmwah
