June Giveaway Winner


Make and Take with Clare Charvill Dare to Create

Pinch Punch it's the first of the month......... can you believe it....... another month gone and one month nearer to Christmas!!!! 
 I had a great time last weekend running evening make and take sessions at the Dare to Create event on Coventry. Huge thanks Di for inviting me along, Tony and Karen for all your help and ladies for joining me for some late night crafting. It was great to see you all - we definitely had a ball ........................

and here's how we made them

It's been another mad week here with very little crafting done, and nothing actually finished. trying to work around early morning pick ups for Oli, taxiing Harry to and from his work experience placement at a Landscape Architects firm, shopping for dresses with Sophie and a last minute dot com rush to take Oli to get a suit yesterday morning - 3 hours before the wedding they were off to.  
Luckily they both had something to wear by the time they left the house but it really was touch and go!!!!! lol!!  Working in the middle of all the comings and goings is nigh on impossible. I've got new projects part done, oodles of bits of filming done and in the can but just haven't had enough uninterrupted time to pull them all together and share yet.....!  
It's all change next week, Oli and Sophie move into their new house together. I know I'm going to be removal mum!!! for them and taxi mum for Harry too. We've collected so many things for their new house here, it's getting hard to move around the house.  I know I"ll miss them not being here but on a positive note I'll be one step closer to having a dedicated craft room to work in......... so excited. After four years of crafting in the middle of all the comings and goings I'll have a dedicated work space to be uber creative in: whop whop!!!!  Ikea here we come ..... :-) 
Anyway enough of my ramblings. I know you want to know who's won the June giveaway. Thank you all for leaving your comments.  I loved reading them all as always.  From the 75 Random.org chose comment No 38

Huge thanks to you all for joining in the giveaway.  We'll launch the July Giveaway a little later in the week so do call by and leave a comment on that one once it goes live. 
Well i'm going to take advantage of the peace and quiet here in the house before the kiddywinks get up.  Have a fun weekend, thanks for calling by and look forward to catching up with you again later in the week.

    1. Hi Patricia, thanks for calling by. Hope alls well with you and yours. I've been a bit quiet here - with a house full of kiddiewinkies, boxes of stuff and all their comings and goings its really hard to work in the middle of it all. Big upheaval going on this week as Oli moves out. We're deep cleaning and decorating his room for Harry to move up into it and then gutting Harrys old room so I can move up into it and turn it into my craft room. Whop Whop Ikea here we come. I'm on taxi duty for Harry and removal van duty for Oli I think too as I'm the only one with a licence that covers that size of vehicle. I hope your week isn't as hectic. Hugs to you xx
