About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

Oak House Challenge 'Alphabetica' come and join in!

I've got my Oak House studio hat on today and I'm here to remind you you have this week to join in the 'Alphabetica' challenge to be in with a chance of winning £40 of lovely Oak House Studio products. All you need to do is use one of their stamps or inks on your project and enter.



Here are some of my DT makes for this month.


I had great fun making this one, I just dropped the ink onto a card and blew with a straw to see what happened.





So there you have it . My little bit of Oak House Studio inspiration. You've got until the end of the week to get those entries in. Good luck.


Crafty hugs,

Clare x x x
