Happy New Year Everyone

Hi Everyone,

Well Christmas now seems like a distant memory of rushing in and out of shops, wrapping mountains of presents with masses of sellotape, meeting friends and family to swap gifts and exchange festive wishes and eating way to much lol.  This year has been a year of ups and downs finding myself is funny, sad, difficult and crazy situations but throughout it all I have had amazing family and friends supporting me all the way.

So this post is to say a BIG THANK YOU to them all for helping me out, keeping me focused and making me giggle during 2014. 

Looking forward into 2015, our house will be blessed with the arrival of a little baby girl, My son will turn 12 and be off on his first abroad trip with his school plus other adventures and I will be busy moving my time between The Isle of Wight, London and Birmingham plus working on many more craft projects throughout the year. 

I'm ending this post with a wish that you all have a wonderful, Creative and Successful 2015.

See you soon Becka B xxx

Christmas Card - Last Minute Make


I sat and wrote down my christmas card list and was surprised I had to make 50 Christmas cards for all my friends to make, so the plan was to keep it quick and simple so everyone got them in time,  I decided to just use stamps and a gem, I have to say it was fun to try and not over bling the bell as the design is crying out to be binged up, I added the gem to the red stamped bow to add the sparkle.

Keepsake Mini Album - Fernli Design GDT

Hello Everyone,

I was so happy to be asked by Fernli Designs to be a GDT (Guest Design Team) member and had so much fun creating my first project for them.

It was very easy to pick a project and make it as Fernli Designs make so many wonderful goodies that all work well together. I chose to make a keepsake mini album, I chose to add a matchbox as to hold trinkets and bulkier treasures.

My Little Teapot

Hello Everyone,

I made this little teapot for a challenge. The rules are to make a teapot, fill it with goodies and then leave it for someone to find and enjoy.

This is mine and I plan on leaving it for a friend at her work tomorrow. 

More Photos to follow tomorrow..............

Altered Tin

Hello everyone,

I got this little tin a few weeks ago and have had it on my desk waiting to be altered, I have never altered one before, I didn't know how tricking it would be (tricky but loads of fun). the charm of these little tins is you can add all the little bits and bobs you have lying around and never want to throw away, all those bits of trim and odd gems and flowers and anything else you can find.

I have to say I am pleased with how it turned out and will be out looking for more tins to alter this weekend.

My little tin 

Potion bottle with made with love charm and Mavis the spider 

Gems and layered trim across the top of the tin

Doris the spider 

Bling feet made from broken bracelet and a small wood block

Top with lace trim and Tim Holtz die

Altered Tag - Fernli Designs

Hi Everyone,

I made this tag with my grandma house in mind, the warm aged wallpaper that could tell a million stories, the books that have had the eyes of many people reading the pages and the picture no one can remember when it was put up or who by. A room full of stories and memories and the wall lights that warm the room with a addictive glow to never want to go home.

My tidy craft room.

Hi everyone,

I have spent the last few days organising, tidying and rearranging my craft room and now I have finished.

I moved house a year ago and have been busy settling into life in a totally new area. Going out in the car has for me been the best part of our new adventure here as we never know what we are going to see and with every new road we go down something great has been found. From great places to eat to cute little beaches and not forgetting chocolate box thatched cottages. 

I have to say I do love being here. Well here are the pictures on my craft room. I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by. Will be back soon with a project to share with you. 

Happy crafting

Door hanger for Myles bedroom door -


What a lovely day we are having here on the south coast. Yesterday Myles asked me to make a sign for his bedroom door, as he loves fish and marine life I thought it would be a good idea to make an underwater style hanger and here it is. He is really pleased with it and now has a list of projects for me that will make his room look like an underwater world (Not sure i will be able to make a moving shark he's asked for,but he things i can).

This project was really fun i might have to make one for my bedroom door to.
