Its been a funny two weeks with Harry my youngest away in Spain and Oli out and about on his hols too.  But all's nearly back to normal and they are both home again.

I've been trying to sort new places to store my ever increasing stack of crafty supplies while the boys have been away, and inspired by the bright and cheery papers in the new Mother Goose collection by Graphic 45 made this handy holder which is just the right size to store some of my paints and sprays.  It would also make a great gift idea for hand made jams or a bath set.

It's featured over on the Graphic 45 blog today along with another really creative project by Anne

Click the link here to see more pics of our two projects and for instructions on how to make them both. There's also a video link below for my handy holder.

Happy crafting every one :-)
