So here are few more things that I've made this week. Lots of paper flowers ready for a 5 day event in August. This coming week I will need to catch up with book folding, and also start the Christmas stock.
So it's been a year since my last posting, and things have been very busy at the Krafty Kows HQ. I've not been idle, there's been folding, sticking, cutting, stamping, experimenting with new ideas and sometimes a little cursing and not much time for blogging but I'm going to try and keep things up to date this time.......maybe! If you don't see me here you can always catch up with me on Facebook, Instagram, and occasionally Twitter, although I just don't get Twitter!
So for now I'm going to post a few photos of some of the things I've been up to, but I can't stop for long as I have an idea swirly around my head, which I simply must try out......maybe there will be more cursing later!
I'll try and post again very soon with some of the events I'll be attending, so it's bye for now.
So we are reaching the end of our exhibition and it has been fun and very successful. I have met some regular customs and lots of news ones too. The visitors book is bursting with lovely comments which are very encouraging for all of us. There are two more days to go.

We had a great weekend in Brighton and finally visited the shop Choccy Woccy Doo Dah. Wow it's so amazing, small and terribly busy but I managed to get a few photos.
It's so colourful and just loved the cake that says 'All you need is Love'
We came across a car boot sale at the marina and bought some absolute bargains. A full box of 12 x 12 scrap book papers, must be a minimum of 200 sheets for £10.00. But why did I buy them, I must have at least 2000 sheets of paper here already!!!.
My most exciting find was small books of music paper in a little back street shop in Rottingdean and here are a few very small rolled roses I made.
Think these may got in a little teacup and saucer ready for the Gallery next week.
So book folding has become a thing I love to do. It's so addictive and now looking to create some new patterns shortly. But for now here are some I've created recently.
For those of you that are local in the areas of Wimborne, Poole etc I will be showing some of my work at the gallery at Upton country park. It has a lovely tea room in beautiful surroundings and this will be supporting the Lewis Manning Hospice Charity, so please pop along a see some wonderful artist/crafters work.
So I've been away for ages and lots have happened. It's been a tough 6 months but things are looking a brighter (fingers crossed).
Unfortunately I had to leave the team at C.R.A.F.T challenge blog simply because time was always against me and I felt bad letting the team down each week, although Jo never seemed to mind and has been brilliant. So I wish the current team lots of success and will be popping over from time to time. Thanks girls I loved my time with you.
I've managed to make some things in between family and all the crisis in between, if fact the crafting has kept me sane. So here are some of the things I've been creating.
And here is where I will be showing my work next along with 11 other artists & crafters so please pop along if you are in the area.
Welcome to our world of crafts.
We are Jeanette and Michelle and we set up this blog together to share our love of different crafts but mostly paper crafting. This is not a hobby you understand but a full time addiction.
