CCBOX 10...

It's here! I can't believe we are at box ten already! Two more months and its the crafty creatives birthday!

This months theme is... BLUE!

So what's in the box I hear you say!

•Art Card: I love the pretty picture on this months art card, created by the talented Catherine Moody. Visit her website at

•CCKIT: Make your own bluebird mobile. I love this and it doesn't look too tricky either!

•Felt balls: All the way from Nepal, in shades of blue of course! Would be nice on a piece of jewellery or maybe a card...

•Glitter and seed beads from stix2: the beads would be great on some jewellery and the centre tube of fine glitter balls would look lush on my nails!

•Mini blank canvas: so many possibilities! Not sure what I shall create yet!

•Three 59ml pots of premium Americana acrylic paint from DecoArt: three great shades of blue. I am thinking of painting a wooden trinket box for my daughter.

•Selection of tiny blue glass beads from Musha Makes: Think I might use these on the canvas board maybe???

•Jumping Clay: This looks so exciting! I've never seen this before so I'm looking forward to trying it.

•Sheets of a5 blue card and paper: the textures of these are fab and will def be featuring on a card!

•Fat quarter of 100% cotton fabric: I live the pretty pattern I received! Might make a nice little purse!

•Two Bluebird pendants: def going on a summer necklace! Or maybe a bracelet...

As usual the box is packed full of great quality products, and I can't help wonder what the birthday box will be filled with??? Only one more box until we are on the birthday box... Will the crafty creatives team go with a birthday theme? Or maybe an item from each of the previous boxes?

Now off to make a purse with that lush fabric I think... First things first though, kettle on!

Apron and matching hair clip...

It was my sons friend Lena's Birthday yesterday and this is what I made her. Her mother had mentioned that she wanted a play apron so I thought I would give it a go! The trim was a bit tricky but I got there in the end! I love making hair clips so I made her one to match her apron. Hope you like them!
