Time flies...

Woops...just realised I haven't posted this month, I've been busy getting the house ready for Christmas and making lots of cards :) I wont upload any pictures until I know my friends have received them ;)

Couple of birthdays this month too, I can show you one of the cards as the recipient has received it.

Ideal quick card to make at this time of year.

Hope you are all well and getting ready for Santa :-)

Happy Guy Fawkes Weekend.

I took advantage of Hobbycrafts 25% off yesterday and stocked up on card blanks and the usual few sparklies ;-)  I have been in the craft room all day creating cards, some of which I can't upload until the glitter etc dries lol. Here is the one that can be shown;-

Can't beleive it's bonfire night tomorrow, hope anyone going to a display stays safe and has a fabulous time.

It's the weekend :)

Hi, hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend. Yesterday I went to the craft fayre at the SECC, it was mobbed as usual, still managed to get quite a few pretties though :)

I can now upload pics of cards that had been made for friends birthdays.

I have also launched a page on Facebook, just working out how it all works lol. Search for Domestic Goddess Crafts and you should see a button butterfly as the profile picture.

Have a fabulous weekend

Good evening from a very windy Glasgow!!

Woooooshhhhh, think that was a witch on a bike going by our window there!! As you will have seen from the news the tail end of Hurricane Katia is lashing Glasgow. Perfect for a cosy night in :)

Last week I went for a visit to my local craft shop and got some new pretties, once I have made some things I shall upload pictures.

My postie must be getting quite annoyed with me, I have been receiving lots of goodies from eBay...a girl can never have too many pretties ;)

Take care and stay safe!!

Hello from a rainy and cold Glasgow.

Hi, haven't blogged for a few days...been busy ;)

I have been selling some of my excess crafty bits on Facebook, so I've been packing them up and posting them. It's a great way to get new stash without spending lots of money.

Yesterday hubby took me to my local craft shop and got me some pretties, got a gorgeous new butterfly stamp, daisy punch some new card candy, textured card, mirri card, Tim Holtz ticket die, Sizzix extender thingy and some inks :)

Haven't had time to play today as I was at my local residents meeting, can you believe I was asked to be on the committee??? Me a shy retiring person too ;)

Tomorrow we are planning a trip through to Edinburgh for lunch, fingers crossed it stays dry xx

A couple of cards I made.

This was the first card I made, it was for my hubbys birthday.
He loves anything with an engine, so thought this was appropriate :)

This was a card for a friend of mine that had her first baby girl after two sons, so I wanted it to be really girly pink.

I also wanted the inside of the card to be pretty too :)

Crafty shelves.

This is the shelves when hubby had built them

And this is the shelves after I had filled them with my goodies;

There is still some sorting to do, but today is the perfect wet rainy day to do it :)

Hello from me!

It's been a while since I set this up and posted anything...why the delay I hear you ask? I have been sorting out the spare bedroom which is now known as "The Crafty Room" it looks great, and I can't wait to get making pretties.

I took some before and after pics and will upload them for you to have a nosey. (If I can work out how to lol)

Thanks for reading my ramblings,

Carol xx
