Monday - Let's Get Organised!

Hello friends
Start of a working week and lots to do.  We are gearing up to the charity event
 in the studio/shop that is taking place on Saturday.
I'm getting Mitchell to move tables around and begin to display lots of fun things.  
Frantic cake baking will take place at the end of the week - he has a varied job description! 

Yesterday, Hazel asked for a link to the charity kits, no problem it is here.

Talking of the charity kit, Sue has completed hers and it looks fantastic.
I've poached a photo of it - (hope you don't mind Sue!)
More photos of the finished project can be viewed on Sue's blog here.

Next, a shout out to Suzy D - you haven't claimed your prize of Gold Elements!
Drop me an email as soon as possible and I will get them out to you.

Talking of being organised, I stumbled across this project, I think I may have 
shared it with you but perhaps not everyone has seen it.  
It is a weekly reminder box - created from an empty tea bag box!
I cut off the lid and reinforced the sides with some card.
 Spiral Blossoms Two and Wonderful Wings featured on the front.

I used an assortment of Edgeabilities® to create the daily index cards. 
I feel Edgeabilities are forgotten quite a lot - I personally love them!
 Here are the index cards in a little more detail.
 The idea is to stick notes etc behind each card marked up for that day.
A great project for recycling boxes.  
And those tiny butterflies - they are the 'fall out' from Butterflies Circles.

Take care friends.

Morning Christine,
Love your upcycled box really like the papers you have used.
Sounds like you have a very busy week ahead, have you roped in the rest of your family?

What a great idea Christine, this project you should do as a class. Glad to hear you and the boys are getting organised for Saturday. Sally, Sue and I are just about ready with the stitching kits all bagged up and have raised £27.00 already from selling some other stitching patterns. Looking forward to the day. Janice xx

Toni said...

hello Christine, sounds like a very busy 'family and anyone else who can help' week but all in a fabulous cause. I really do wish you luck with the event and hope it goes really well. I'm hoping to pop in as we are staying in London for a few days later this week. I just can't wait to see what's going on and to see your little shop.
Love today's project, such pretty papers and what a wonderful way to use some recycled boxes.
Toni xx

Hi Christine and all the family, loving the use of the Tea Bag Box. You use such lovely fonts can I ask were these stamps or printed off the computer (which I doubt!) They look lovely. I find it hard to get really nice fonts - any suggestions would be much appreciated. Enjoy your day and don't work too hard in this heat!

Carol J said...

Hi Christine,
Link to Raffle tickets found,
It's me, permanently confused,
Love Carol xxx

Linda said...

Love the box Christine, with a few extra dividers would make a great telephone numbers box. Think that might be my next project.

Hope you raise so much money on Saturday.
Love to you and your boys
