My creative space....

today has had a little makeover! Shelves have been tidied, jars straightened, papers filed.....
I needed another table in my little room (and it really is small, you know!) but where to put it? I ended up moving my Grandma's chest of drawers into the space under the stairs which is next to my room, which meant I could squeeze the table in which in turn meant virtually everything else had to be turned around!
I also commandeered the shelves in the space outside my room which had previously housed the dvds and cds but which of course, were just the perfect home for all my buttons-

Isn't it a funny thing - whenever you tidy a place, it tends to look a lot worse than it ever did, before it gets better!
Anyway, it looks lovely now. I took some more pics but my camera battery has just died!
See more creative spaces here.

*EXCITING NEWS* It's my FIRST EVER GiVeaWay!!!!
Couldn't wait any longer - I am a bit impatient!!
Okay, so I am going to give away 3 things to all you crafty people out there!!

1 - the first person will get a full pack of my 71 colour 4" mini felt squares - a complete rainbow of felt in THE most gorgeous shades. Just think what you could do with all those colours!

2 - the second person will get a full set of the most HUGE buttons - you will get 12 - one of each colour - red, turquoise, pink, purple, white, yellow, black, chocolate, blue, navy, cream, and green!
and 3- some lucky person will get 60, yes 60 polka dot buttons and will be able to choose their colours from lime, soft orange, red, black, racing green, yellow, teal, aqua, royal blue, lilac, baby pink and candy pink. You could have all 60 in one colour or a mixture, it's up to you!

Good luck everyone!
All you need to do is leave a comment below and your names will be put in a hat (well probably a box actually) and Flossie will pull out the 3 lucky winners on Friday. x

  25. Oh lovely, a giveaway! Is it wrong to yearn after more little felt squares when I haven't done anything with the ones I ordered yet? But I've had so many ideas, another set might be needed! And then of course there are the buttons... I think my daughter would definitely vote for them! Yesterday after I dressed her she solemnly hunted all over her clothes, but silly Mummy had chosen an outfit with NO BUTTONS! The ultimate crime!
