So as a Dealz Ambassador the Easter challenge was to get some stuff for some Easter crafting & fun. I got lots for just €30, 2 baskets for the kids on Easter morning and some mini eggs for a little egg hunt :) I also got a cute girls Bonnet and some decorations. Take a look
Quick post to show you my new make up brush holder
I had no where to store my brushes so I got a plain glass jar from Ikea (I also seen some really pretty ones in TkMaxx yesterday) and some sand so I could easily store and find my make-up brushes as I’ve lost a few with them rolling under the bed!!
It looked quite plain so in it went to my craft room for a quick jazzing up and it came out like this :) This would be a great gift for a make up loving friend, budget friendly, quick to do and looks pretty on your dresser :)
Tell me/show me your make up brush storage?
I only got around to making 2 very quick Christmas cards this year. Here they are
I used paper from Graphic 45’s Nutcracker Sweet paper pad, they do such amazing papers!! I love the Candy Canes, this card was for a little girl. I got the stamp free from DoCrafts Creativity Magazine and coloured with Promarkers.
Have you guys made any christmas cards this year, send me your links if you have any

Hellloooo!:) I’m in a great mood because I was at one of Jackie Mooney’s workshops yesterday, her Christmas one :)) I rarely get to go but when I do I have such a great time between the chats, coffee, cakes (Dee!!) and making stunning cards I have such a great day!
Jackie’s classes are just brilliant! She is (in my eyes anyway) the most talented paper crafter out there. She’s such an inspiration, every month her cards are amazing, I don’t know how she does it.
I started card making as a New Years Resolution back in 2011 as I wanted to start a new hobby and make new friends. I’ve since loved card making and made some life-long friends :)) I’m so glad I found Jackie’s workshops. They are held in Dublin every month.
Here’s what we made this month
What do you think? :) Have you tried card making/paper crafting before?
You can see Jackie’s blog here and see more info on her workshops held every month in Dublin here (you’ll also see better pictures of the cards we made lol!) If you’re thinking of starting a new hobby or trying something new for the New Year I highly recommend you try card making, you won’t be sorry :)

Wanted to make something for Halloween so I’ve been working on this for the past few weeks (yes I’m a very slow crafter haha)
I painted a lid of a box (Glossy Box to be exact) with acrylic paint and used some left over Graphic 45 Magic of Oz papers. Put glossy accents on the moon. Used my ecraft for the writing (see how I had to squeeze in that extra ”L” oooops lol), lock and key and heat embossed them silver. Mini picture frame, cobwebs and glittery spiders from Dealz. I’m terrified of spiders but this one is glittery and cute so I it doesn’t freak me out too much ;) And used the chain off an old necklace to be able to hang it up
Love these. Arnt they gorgeous! €1.49 from Dealz. Can wait to use them on a project. Prob something vintage style.
