It starts!

I've finally started my clear out in my craft room....this could be on going for quite some time.  Yikes!
I have a pile of stuff to go to a well know auction site, but I thought as some of it is brand new, it would be possibly worth doing as candy?! 
It has not been as well loved as it should have been.
I feel it is therefore my duty to hand over to a more responsible crafter.    
Crafty stash needs to be loved and played with.
Whilst doing so I thought I would quickly share with you a recent party I did for a friend and her 8 year old daughter.
Now she likes to craft so her mum asked me if I could do a craft party for 10 girls and this is what we made:

I used papers from Papermania and the Papermill in Aberdeen, as I had plenty. 
The request was for it "not to be pink" so I went lilac instead.
The dies are Tim Holtz Tattered Florals, SU butterfly and the cake is from Walzing Mouse download templates.
The stamp on the butterfly is also SU, pearls from Zva Creative and the rick rack is from my "local shop for local people!"  (Papercraft's Boutique)
We also added a wee bit of glitter....all kids love it!
The box was filled with sweeties for them to take home as their goodie bag.
I think a good time was had by all and they proudly left with their creations.

Anyway this is not getting my room sorted so I better crack on, argh where to start next....
I may be some time!

have fun gutting your craft room!!! I have just finished doing mine .... it took forever, I have things all ready to give away to some of my friends children ..... I have to say crafting in my newly organized space was lots of fun .... I am sure it will not last long and it will be a total state and stuffed full of this and that and I will need to organize again!!!

Fabulous Erika, I do particularly love the little cakes and I bet they went down a real treat.
I have no sympathy for you with regard to your craft room...I did offer to help many months ago! I think you didn't trust me to just remove the older stuff :)
