Playing with Paints and Stencils

Welcome xx  Hope you are looking forward to the weekend and having  some crafty time. Today I am sharing some new addiction !!!  and a  poly pocket folder that I have been altering with the view to storing my stencils !!
I am hoping to alter quite a few items that I have been storing for some time as I really need to make some space in my cupboards xx

I can't believe how time has once again flown has been pretty busy with one thing and another but time crafting is always enjoyed xx

You can see the folder below...still a few things to do but getting there !!!

 Lots of Decoart paints and stencils. The  stencilled quote, which reads " The object isn't to make art it's to be in that wonderful state that makes art inevitable " Robert Henri, is a favourite. It is also much clearer in real life than in the photo shown.

And below some more socks, something I am really enjoying and it also stops me from eating too much chocolate !!!!
Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are up to and I will be back soon

Huge hugs xxxxx
