Our present to Sienna was a Toy Box from Etsy. We took it down to her home last Friday and here are a few pictures.

Sienna's 1st Birthday

Our little lady in the family turned one this week and our niece Lauren with her partner Nick organised a birthday tea for their daughter Sienna yesterday.

I made her a frame for her bedroom using the LOTV alphabears and we have a toy box on order.

Here are a few photos

Colouring again

I moved a few things off the left hand side of my craft room counter this week so I could have my laptop there as well as my colouring and a bag of Copics.

I signed up some while back to the Kit and Clowder colouring classes which I find challenging but enjoyable. I don't always find time to do the free classes we get each month but try to keep up with the others. I failed in July and August so when the September class arrived a week or so ago I knew it was time to at least get the August underwater one done.

Here is the result of my colouring

I am now working on something else for a 1st birthday and trying to get some other birthday cards made so the September class has to wait for a while.

Thanks for looking and have a great new week.

Craft Room refresh and Christmas cards

 Colour has been going on me and my walls recently rather than on paper and card. Having tidied and reorganised I decided to paint and replace the flooring, the window blind and the chair. It is a small room but I have done my best with the space until I throw some things out! The walls aren't in a great state - 1930s plaster not at its best but at least with new paint they look better.

View towards the street - trying to organise!

 This week's task was to sort the Christmas cards I have been making all year and get greetings stamped into them. That was all done yesterday so today I made another card.

Today's card was made using Splitcoaststampers challenge SC714 and a Card-IO stamp set.
All 194 Christmas cards waiting for an inside greeting - managed to get them all done yesterday

Some of my favourite DTGD creations

Dare to Get Dirty is now done for another year but I thought I would share some of the cards I made - my 18 favourites out of the 55 cards I appear to have made. If you join the Fan Club you can play along with all the fun challenges next year.

Thank you for looking

Kit and Clowder for May and June

Just realised I didn't share my May colouring and I have now completed June. The classes from Kit and Clowder are always challenging and I cannot take the time to put the same level of detail into all my cards but the practice certainly helps me improve. I would never have attempted to add details to clothes previously but with guidance it wasn't too hard.

March and April Colouring Classes

Here are my projects from the March and April Kit and Clowder colouring classes. I certainly find the classes challenging but useful.
