Hubby came home last night walked in to my craft room to say hello and straight away asked if I was ill or something because i had tidied up
This is the view of craft room as you come through the door

Tuesday Taggers

Over on Tuesday Taggers They have asked that we alter something, I was working on this yesterday.And it is perfect for today challenge
Mum has walking difficulties and has just moved in with us, I have given up work to become her full time carer and she needs a bell of some sort so that she can let me know if she needs any help, well she kept losing it, so I had this wooden door hanger, I painted with White paint, stamped butterflies and small  flowers  over it using a stamping up set, sprayed with crafters companion glitter spray then when dry sprayed a cat of crafters companion spray varnish, then i screwed the door bell onto it, something pretty and easier for her to hold when she needs to ring without dropping it
