Storage Heaven

Good Morning hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend.

Ooh! I have something amazing to show you.

I'm probably like most, if not all of you and just adore storage for my crafty stuff.

Here's a pic of how I used to store my Spectrum Noirs, to be honest I thought it was ok, although it did frustrate me not being able to find the pen I wanted straight away and then they'd all get jumbled when I removed one.

Well, the lovely folks over at Crafters Companion have come up with the PERFECT solution for storing pens.

OMG! how amazing are these? Oh! I'm as happy as a dog with two tails. :o)
Not only are they all organised and easy to get in and out, they look so lovely! Yep! I am chuffed to bits with them, I even let out a little squeel when I opened the box and saw these inside.
Thank You Sara, Leann and all at Crafters Companion for coming up with this. Genius! :o)

Mmm! I bet you're thinking, I don't have Spectrum Noirs. Well, whatever pens you have will fit in them. Pop over to Leann's blog and have a look.

You can find out more about the ultimate pen storage on the Crafter's Companion News Blog. They are launched tomorrow as a four day deal over at Create & Craft.  There is also a fantastic facebook competition which you can find out more about HERE 

Hope you have a lovely Sunday, whatever you're upto.

The Collector - My Crafty Heart DT card

Good evening folks, how are you all? hope you are all happy & well. I'm sorry for being a bad blogger over the last few days but to be honest, I haven't a clue where the time has gone. It was mine & hubby's 20th Anniversary on Tuesday so we went out for a lovely meal and snuggled up on the settee after & watched the telly. Last night we took our son Kyle to visit his girlfriend in hospital, she has kidney stones. Poor love.

I haven't been able to get into my craftroom for a couple of days. We have had British Gas out 5 times since Saturday, remember the new boiler we had fitted ? well it has been a right pain, breaking down all the time. So we have now had another one fitted today along with a new pump & valve. Sooooo most of my stuff in the craftroom had to be shifted, :o(  I hadn't even been able to get in to take photos until tonight.

Enough rambling on from me, here's a card I made the other day with some gorgeous new goodies over at My Crafty Heart.

I used: GG The Collector
Prima Firefly paper pad 
Flowers - Prima Serenade in purple & pink

All this lovely lot is available at MCH

I also used: Pro's, Spec's & Prisma's

I think I might burst......

Good evening folks. Hope you are all happy and well. A funny old day weather wise here, cold then warm then cold again. No wonder we all get poorly

I have some really exciting news to share and yep! I'm nearly ready to burst if I don't tell you.

I was totally gobsmacked a couple of weeks ago when the lovely Leann Chivers from  Crafters Companion asked me to join their DT. I was sucking on a chocolate lime as I read the email and almost choked on it.

Well it took me all of 2 seconds to decide, as you can imagine. I am still doing the happy dance and me chops hurt from all the grinning.

Thank You Leann for asking me, I can't wait to get cracking and get to know the lovely ladies on the DT.


Well that's my exciting news,hope you all have a really lovely evening.

I'm off for a bit of a blog sesh.
