October 2018

WOW, we are getting to the time of year where there is Halloween, Holidays, Christmas and lots of busy busy times. I hope you remember to take time out for yourself and create, even if it is just once a week for a few hours. (I will also try to take my own advise) 
Last month we had a whole week of our special guest designer Maxine Hazebroek featuring gorgeous Halloween creations, if you missed it just scroll back to have a look at her amazing layouts, treat boxes and altered doll house into a spooky house. “The Boss” has extended the Halloween special for the whole month of October as well, SO follow
