Hellooo....I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter weekend. Its been glorious weather down here in Cornwall for the visitors, tho the rain is here today :( I have taken a few days off from crafting & blogging but I am back now, feeling all refreshed!

Did you all have lots of chocolate for Easter then???? I had a lovely one from Thorntons from J and then he really surprised and delighted me by puting up my long awaited shelves!!! I had units before and it looked really messy so this is so much better.

Last week it was my turn to put an entry onto the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog. My task was to highlight some lacy cardstock.........this sure is tricky stuff for someone who does not scrapbook hehe. After a lot of time looking at it, poking it, puting it away and out again I finally came up with something I thought would be a bit different. Its a 12x12 notice board of a sorts, using those pesky little clothes pegs we never know what to do with:

If you like the board you can find the instructions to make it HERE!
Thank you for popping by, please leave a message as I love to read them, hugs XXX

Blinking heck Karen. Your room is transformed. But can we still play "I spy" with this new tidy room???

Great idea with the little pegs to attach the photos to the lace cardstock Karen.

Great use of that cardstock, I don't know what to do with it either. I notice there was no picture of your craft desk though ha ha ha, bet it was still covered in all the stuff you couldn't get on the shelves -hee hee. Lovely of J to put them up for you.

I'm so chuffed for you to have your shelves up Karen, they look brill and I bet it's so much easier now to find things. Fab my lovely. XX

Hazel said...

You're certainly making good use of those shelves. And what a wonderful job of the family board - love it x

Caroline said...

The shelves have certainly been put to good use! You'll wonder how you ever managed before, haha.
I have a Thorntons egg too Karen, yummy...x
