Life Lately: In The Studio #7

Despite my best efforts, the floor of the studio is still messy. I haven’t quite recovered from Christmas so I must get it back in order soon! I’ll be having an Instagram sale soon over on my Claireabellesells account to help me declutter the space. Stay tuned for a sewing machine, fabrics, planners and lots of crafty bits and bobs.

In the meantime, the desk has been the productive space and I’ve been working on lots of projects. Here’s a little from behind the scenes with some sneak peeks of new products, DIYs and blog features coming soon!

I tried out Sugru for the first time which is a mouldable glue – perfect for home hacks and fixing things as it goes completely hard after 24 hours.Sugru-Mouldable-Glue

  1. I wondered where tammy was lately. It like the idea of the hooks. I may have to steal it and try some hooks in my craft room x
