Felt ATCs

Felt ATCs

This week I have been making ATCs - they suit me for the moment - they can be quick and good for me to fit in between my 4 month old's naps!  Also I feel quite rusty craft-wise so they allow me the freedom to practise and get my crafty brain back into action.
I have made 2 today using papermania atcs, ranger diamond stickles and some felt sheets.

I cut by hand (as you can probably tell!)  I enjoy working with felt as it adds texture to my work.  I have a tendancy to stick to only one material at a time on a project so I am going to try to challenge myself to experiment more in my next few projects.
Hopefully I will be able to add a few more atcs this week.

First post!

I am concerned that my hobby is not crafting it is in fact buying crafty things.  I have decided to start this blog to record how I use up my ridiculous crafty stash.
I am challenging myself to try to make one craft item eg card, scrapbook page, ATC etc every week using only my stash.
I am promising myself I will not buy any more craft goodies while Im doing this - having said that I ordered some embossing folders yesterday and bought some glitter glue this morning - Ok - starting now im not buying any more!
So wish me luck and hopefully I will be able to blog regularly to stave off those crafty shopping cravings!
