Hi everyone popping in again.
This is what I have been upto for the past few days
I decided to make small gifts for all the family for when the new baby arrives, Which can be any day now.
I couldnt do girl/boy ones because the parents dont want to know until it arrives so I had to stick to colours that hopefuly will suit both
They were made out of 1 sheet of 12 x 12 paper Maze Book

This is my now tidy craft room and all my new storage things I brought yesterday

Its so tidy now I dont want to use it and mess it all
