too much stuff

I think i have a few too many mica powders,glimmer mists and paints.I dont really use any of these but still i buy more of the same type of media. Recently i brought the whole sets of dylusion paints and tim holtz stains. I know that many of you out there can identify with this ! I 'd love to hear from you xx jo xx

baby gift idea

Hiya everyone, Hope you are all well !! I am sorry i have'nt been around recently but i have all my craft goodies packed away ready for the builders to move in. However i can just get to my cricut so i had a play with it and came up with these altered baby-grows.I took some material and ironed the back with some heat & bond then i ran it through the cricut using cutting blade set at 5 and the rest set at 4 .I used cindy-loo cartridge . i then ironed the cut outs onto the baby-grow and stitched all around the edges[very fiddly to do] Anyway i am pleased with the outcome and have saved a few pennies along the way. xx jo xx
