Happy House

Well here we are, at the beginning of Autumn and this is the first post since the beginning of the year.  How bad is that.  But in my defence I have been super busy making lots of fabulous stuff for work.

Yesterday, I got to have some well deserved 'me' time with my friend and co-worker Kathleen and we had a day out at Art From The Heart.  We attended a Stampotique class with Karen Hayselden and made and adorable wooden house.  I loved the door stamp, my NEED TO HAVE list is getting longer by the minute lol!

Here's what we made
I added my own touches to make it mine, such as shading around everything with a Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen and blending it with my finger and adding the little wooden butterfly and heart which I coloured with a orange Gelato and glittered with Tropical Tangerine Stickles, I added a Tim Holtz game spinner and a little key to finish it off.  I just love it, it now has pride of place in my craft studio.

This was the first class or workshop I have ever attended and I have been bitten by the bug, I had a fab time and Karen was great, it was so much fun.

Hopefully I will be a bit more prolific with my posts in the next few months, it's been crazy since Christmas and will probably get busier but I am learning to be more organised with my time lol!

Happy crafting
