Our December Giveaway

Worlds Fair book in a box Kit  Clare Charvill Graphic 45 Morning everyone, I hope I find you well.  We had a fabulously crafty weekend at Sirstampalot with Janice and Andy last Saturday and Sunday altering craft maids.   I got to craft myself and make one too which was great fun.  No pressure for it to be perfect lol!!! Thanks Janice and Andy for your hospitality and to everyone who came along and joined me at the demo day and workshop.  It was really lovely to see you all again.   Dates for 2016 all agreed and over on the events page of my blog. 

With the last of my workshops for the year all done and dusted I've had a few days out to enjoy the festive season.  The tree is up, Harry got to put the fairy on the top this year :-) 
Oil reached the grand old age of 23.  Happy Birthday sweetie.  xxxx 
 Cards are made, shopping done and afternoon tea with Jane eaten and enjoyed.  That you Jane.  All we need now is a little snow ...........  not sure that's happening as it's 12 degrees here this morning - far too warm. 

We have a new 'Book in a Box' kit out too, now available over on the web site. My sample was altered in papers from the Worlds Fair collection by Graphic 45.  Love the orange and blue colour ways that runs through the papers.

  5. Lovely and beautifully made projects, as always! I love your crafting style and have about 3 of your projects partially done. I'm just waiting to get out of my wheelchair after surgery, as I have to craft standing up at least part of the time, just to make sure I get the papers glued on straight! Fun prize this month! Thank you for the opportunity to win one. Have a Merry Christmas with your family!

  7. I love your book in a box, the papers you've used are (as always with Graphic 45) absolutely gorgeous. I haven't tried an adult colouring book yet, although I'm sure all us crafters already know how relaxing and therapeutic colouring is, so I'm not surprised they've caught on

  20. Hi Clare ~ I recently found you on Pinterest, leading to hours of YouTube videos. Loved them. I have a thing for pretty boxes, especially when organize too! Going on my wishlist after my bank acct recovers from Christmas. I'm sorry for being so wordy, but would like to share about the benefits of Art Therapy. 2015 has been VERY hard for me & my family. My dr suggested talk therapy for my increased depression/anxiety; but I'm blessed to have many ears to listen, shoulders to cry on, encouraging voices of good counsel, & compassionate lips to pray for me... AND, I found Pinterest & Tangle Art! (Which I consider my therapy) However, we were shocked to find our young adult daughter walking thru a fiery trial of her own, to the point of seriously considering suicide. Praise God, we found out b4 she could act on it. While in the hospital, she discovered the calming influence of repetitive activities, like coloring intricate patterns & pages. We've only had the chance to buy 1 book & print a few free pages. While I'd love to build a collection for her & win the Give-Away, I didn't share to gain an edge on winning; but to share the benefits of Art Therapy for those who are unaware or think they aren't talented enough to participate. Some are more creative (oldest daughter), some are more copycat crafty (me), & some are gifted in the final touches area (youngest daughter), etc; but all of us are image bearers of the God Who Created Everything! Hoping this will jump start. someone's creative juices in the coming New Year. Blessings to You & Yours

  25. Hi
    Always love a colouring book, I just read your email and could not believe the awful ordeal you had during your Christmas break. I thought I had it bad, my husband decided to have a separation 2 weeks before Christmas and 1 week before our 16th Anniversary, having said that I actually had one of the best Christmases I've had for years, thanks to family and I have to say Argos who have been delivering me a total house make over which has kept me occupied and thanks to my 86 year old mom, who cooked my Christmas dinner so that I did not have to spend it alone.
    I love all your products and cannot wait until payday to get my hands on some more of the goodies on site.
    I hope you all have a very Happy New year and look forward to a new year and new start in life.
    Regards
    Linda

  31. Your creativity amazes me. I would not be enjoying scrapbook making if it were not for you and all the other creative minds walking me through.
    As for adult coloring, I was just recently introduced to it by my sister in law who suggested it for my sons recovery from alcoholism. I understand coloring can be therapeutic, I would love to win one of these giveaways.
