Blog award & lots & lots of crafting!!

Evening bloggers! Are we all warm enough?! Thank you so much for your kind words about my poor Lilly.
Well I bet you all thought I had disappeared?! Nope just been busy. I've eve been crafting but not having time to blog them. So first of all (a bit late sorry!) I received this fab award of Kathleen aka The Daisy Chain. Kathleen has been following my blog for a while now & always leaves me such nice comments thank you K.
Here is the award
I now need to pass this onto 10 blogger friends ...hmm who to choose? Well here goes..

 I made this box for an order for a friend. My baby boxes are very popular!
I am entering this into the following challenge:
Kaboodle Doodle - anything goes with a dash of purple

 
I've made a couple of ribbon notice boards. I am entering the pink one into challenge:

These sweet jars I have done with some kilner jars from Asda!

 
I have used Stampin' Up flower stamp on the long note books & bears from Die cut Dreams
Been having fun with my die cuts!!
I am entering it into the challenge
Teddy Stampers - Summer Bears

 
Thought I'd try something a bit different on the 2 large notebooks Using fibres & a flower & a brad. They look fab in real life!!

I have used this lovely Elephant couple die cut from Die cut Dreams to make this guest book. Which I thought would make a lovely Wedding present.
I am entering it into challenge:
Forever Friends - Not Forever Friends!

These are something a bit different. I have been playing with my laminator!!

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




About me...

......I thought its probably time I should update my About me info! So here goes.... I am currently 36 years old (as of June 2017) I live in Selby with my husband and son who is (at present) 4 and a half years old.... my son not husband πŸ˜†
I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…

Ellephantastic Cakes

Froggy I thought I would share with you today some cakes I have made over the last year and a bit. Who doesn't love cake? Right! Froggy was a chocolate cake decorate to match my niece's frog themed birthday.
Baby Giraffe Baby giraffe was a treacle sponge cake made for my niece who loves Giraffes Really pleased with how it turned out.


Rose Garden
These are cupcakes and I made a box for them by decorating a large cake box and making my own insert. I made them for my mum as a surprise  They are treacle cupcakes ....yum!




Chocolate Cakes All the cakes I have made have been for my family 
Hope I haven't made you hungry!!
