Easter Gift Ideas and and a big thank you from me

Happy Friday to you and hope you're week's gone well. I'm back in the swing of things and getting ready for my workshop this weekend at Colemans, Rushden and two shows on Creat and Craft TV next Friday. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow ladies :-) 

I've been looking at the Easter Eggs in the stores but haven't bought any yet for the boys.  I'm thinking of making some.  Its quite a few years since I made chocolate eggs but I've made a start and found the moulds from the back of the cupboard.  Just need to decide what chocolate to use.  Are you buying eggs this year or thinking of making some too?  If your going to get crafty there are two great gift ideas by Denise and me over on the Graphic 45 blog today.  

On another note I've reached a bit of a milestone this week.  It's a little over three years since I opened my You Tube account, found and joined the crafting community and picked up tips and ideas from the many videos crafters so generously shares.  This week my Channel has topped the 2 millionth video view which is absolutely astounding.  I'd like to send out a huge, huge thank you to you all for following me and being inspired by my projects.  I'm really touched. 

Have a great weekend, thanks for calling by and catch up again soon :-) 


  1. Morning Clare, Wow !! Heart congratulations on your 2 millionth view, it just shows how much we all appreciate what you do for us.
    I am so looking forward to next Friday, so glad you will be back on C&C, can't wait !!
    I had never even thought of making my own Easter Eggs, you will have to give us a clue of how you make them, please Clare.
    Have a good weekend at Colemans, those lucky girlies.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  2. Congratulations Claire. 2million viewers. Well..."You're worth it!" Love looking at your blog and watching your videos. They are so easy to follow and give some great ideas of how to put your albums,in particular, together. A great reference library. I haven't made any Easter eggs as such apart from dying boiled eggs with onion skins etc. but I did once make a humpty dumpty cake with a batternburg and the egg to represent Humpty. Looking forward to seeing you on C&C Hugs Pauline A x

  3. Good Morning Clare and many, many congratulations on reaching your 2 millionth viewing. You must (and obviously are) absolutely thrilled! It must be wonderful to know that there are people our there in "cyber space" who love and really appreciate the inspiration and sheer hard work that goes into producing these fabulous videos and projects. Well done you! It goes without saying that I am really looking forward to your C&C shows next Friday and will be glued to my sofa with a suitable beverage nearby! I'll say no more than that!! Good luck with the Easter eggs and perhaps you could show us the finished results. Thanks for sharing this with us today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
