It's Friday and it's.....Sticky Time!

Hello friends,
No - your eyes are not deceiving you!  It is Friday and I know...where is Die-Day??!
I am hoping that you will forgive me for not doing a Friday Die-Day this week -
I've been a tad busy with TV preparations but I can promise you that if you tune in to Create and Craft tomorrow I will have some interesting techniques and special things to share with you.

But - now you are here (you see I've hijacked you!) I can share a project I've made for
As I'm featuring the Square Petal Top Box on Create and Craft tomorrow
I thought I would create a very pink one with felt flowers.
All the details are on their blog, step by step photos too.  As usual, I need to ask you a little favour - if you have a moment to pop over to their blog and leave a comment I am very grateful.
Other news - I've added a chair to the Crafty Studio! 
I had this idea that I could relax and sit there in between lots of crafting....mmm it's an idea anyway!
 I added a cushion with an important message.
Lastly today, it is Day 3 of a Photo A Day and the subject is 'coin'
A little unimaginative I'm afraid!
Have a great Friday dear friends and I hope you can tune in tomorrow -
I will post the show times first thing.

Lovely little box Christine, I have been toying with the idea of purchasing this blossom die for a while now and having seen how the flowers look with felt I think it is now a must have! Gorgeous cushion and a very comfy looking chair, have a great weekend x

Morning Christine, I agree 100% with the sentiment on the cushion. The studio looks fab and love all the "pink" accessories. The box is so pretty too. Will be tuning in tomorrow to your shows.

Love your photo for today Christine - made me smile. After all it is what it is!!

I am so falling for those flowers - I must get myself some felt and have a go. They look so beautiful.

The little chair looks comfy and I love the cushion - so right for your studio!!!!!!

Hugs Sue P xxxx

PS Soooooo looking forward to watching you on C&C tomorrow.

hristine, Lovely box and I like the felt flowers too. Made some up myself only yesterday I used fabric glue, must get some of those EZ dots I guess they make sticking the flowers together a much easier job.Very much like the cushion in the chair, is it hand made? Your studio looks so inviting, hurry up and get those work shop dates sorted! Sorry Christine, I know your a busy busy lady. Looking forward to tomorrows shows, best wishes Carolyn x

Redanne said...

Hi Christine, the box with the flowers is stunning, really looking forward to the shows tomorrow. Your Studio is looking wonderful, love that beautiful chair and the words on the cushion are so true. The photo may be uninspiring but it is a coin so you have fulfilled your obligation. Going over to the other site now. Good luck for tomorrow, Crafty hugs, Anne xx

Hi Christine,
Well you used a die for Friday, die-day.... one for the flowers and one for the box, so I think we can forgive you today...LOL!
Lovely little BOX but the flowers really turn it into a special GIFT.
Your cushion on the newly placed chair is stunning. It the sort of handmade item that just has to be cherished and, if your lucky, become an heirloom piece. I adore work like this and it is perfect for your splendid room of creativity. I am so thrilled for you as it seems to me that a lot of dreams have gone into this splendid room and its purpose too. May it bring you lots of joy and fulfillment. (A bit of useless info now... Did you know that to 'fulfill' oneself is to arrive at full development of one's capabilities. So you go for it and succeed in every way!!)
I am really looking forward to the shows tomorrow, I haven't watched much C&C for weeks. I'm not into the premade card toppers etc that they have had a lot of lately, so I can't wait to see you at work again.
Big hugs Linda
