Tick Tock...


Hi Folks,
Welcome to the Weekend!!!! For the fact that we are in lockdown time does seem to be passing quite quickly.
What is everyone up to this weekend? I am not doing much crafting but do need to have a good tidy up of the house!!! I am also boing to be having a big blog visit as I have only been managing to comment on entries to my wee challenge over the last few days so think I will spend a while tonight catching up on everyones weeks. 
My creation today is a clock for my craft room. I didnt have one in it since I moved my stuff to what was Toms old bedroom. When I saw this clock svg file set over on Dreaming Tree I knew I had to buy it and all the bits for it and make my own. 
I really like it as its full of sparkle and it lights up!!! It took a while to make, the tutorial videos over at Dreaming Tree are fantastic though and it talked me through with no issues. I was a bit perplexed by the clock mechanism but worked it out and now know how long Ive been crafty for.
