I had a bit of an epiphany this week and it has made things much easier in my crafting space, (and given me another lesson for LSNED). At the crop I go to, we have half a table each and then a chair at right angles to the chair we sit on. The intention is that we put our utensil bag on this chair and it keeps the tables clearer.
At home though I keep my bag on the right hand corner of the table as you may have seen if you have visited me before. But I am short and I can't actually see into it. *Lightbulb moment* I have a "guest" chair on the other side of the table (used to be for my friend and is now hardly used but needs to stay in case L crafts with me). I have now moved that round so that it sits at my right hand side like it does at the crop. I can see into it without standing up, I don't stab myself on my compass, and I have more space on my table. Win win! I can't believe I didn't think of this before but I was probably too busy making a mess :-)
This week I am working on another ballet themed layout with very similar colours and papers as the 8 photo extravaganza in the previous post. It will be separated in the album by more ballet layouts but with very different papers so that there is variety but I had these to hand and they just work so well for this theme.
This layout also uses some of the same MME papers but hopefully looks quite different and appears in a totally different album as it was from Christmas last year.
I discovered at this Christmas party that B has a particular fondness for Wotsits and balloons! I made some more music paper embellishments with the gorgeous MME brads.
The title lettering on the banner is from the MME die-cuts and "Party" is Woodware chipboard spritzed with grapefruit Radiant Rain glimmer mists. These look SO much better IRL!
Feel free to check out other craft spaces in their various messy states over at Julia's blog, you'll be glad you did.
Bye for now xx
