Hello! It's been awhile since we dropped by so I wish you Happy New Year & hope you've been up to lots of crafty endeavours! Me? Well I have started the year with big dreams & good intentions of getting organised & more crafty. So my first crafty project for the year was a Tickler File- for those who don't know it is a great system to keep your monthly & everyday paperwork plus things-to-do-lists at hand & ready to go. I used some A4 Manilla files & some nice Basic Grey papers to embellish the tops of the files then cut month January to December tabs out of some Classic Bazzil colours. I am loving it & I am feeling more organised already. I have placed it in a plastic tub I purchased from Officeworks along with my Tab Birthday book & my Kikki K daily planner. Next on the list is to make all the Birthday cards I need for each month & then store them in the monthly files before distributing them into the daily files at the start of each month. I need 14 cards just for March!!
I am also getting back into sewing & have made some cushions & lots of lovely bunting for my sister. It got me thinking how good bunting could look made from all those yummy papers we have in store stitched to some pretty ribbon & hung inside for parties or even some home decor. I'm going to have a go next week so stay tuned & I'll post some photos. Might be nice for Easter Decorations mmm....
Another big project I'm working on is the Collins Craft
Mega Warehouse Clearance SALE. We have accumulated a lot of fabulous extra stock over our time in reatil & thought a New Year is a great time to de-clutter. I am sorting it each week & have found some fantastic product that we just have too much of! It is a quality, good name product, still current on trend & will be at amazing never-to-be-seen-again prices. Stay tuned & I may just give you a pre-sale peek!!
Well that's it for now, have a great weekend,
