I think this is something that many crafters aspire to - I'd love a little room just for me to use to make cards so I can get organised and leave projects out to pick up later on.
For the minute I'm storing all my bits and bobs in a set of drawers and a couple of boxes and doing my making on the dining room table:
This was my dining room table this morning - I managed to grab an hour while my little one had a nap. Unfortunately our dining room table does get used for eating and it always seems such a chore to get all my bits out, have a poke through to find what I want and then have to clear them all away an hour later.
Plus as my little boy is currently learning to feed himself - everything has to be put away otherwise, like today when I though I'd do some colouring while he finished his lunch I ended up with a sticky handprint on the page as it was just within his reach (his arms must have grown when I wasn't looking).
Anyway at least I've been doing some crafting; today I was mainly practicing stamping images. I am rubbish at stamping, really rubbish - fuzzy edges, missed sections, too much ink, unevenness - you name it I bodge it. But through the lovely people on the Craftsforum.co.uk I've found loads of tips and useful info and am determined to get better at it.
I've been mainly stamping Christmas images as that's what most of my stamps are, and I do seem to be getting better. The best two tips from the website that work for me are to use a fine liner to fill in any missing sections - why did I not think of this before - so at least the missing sections bit is resolved (or disguised!). The other tip is to stamp standing up - hardly rocket science but it really works works!!
My tip - which I may still get patented is if you don't have the right size acrylic block for your clear cling stamps you can improvise and use the lid from your ink pad instead! Amazing!
And to finish this post some good news for me as I have 12 followers on my blog now - how exciting! So here's a big Hello to Silver Thistle Beads & Dreamstar68.
