    Hello craft forum :-)

    Hi! *waves* Thanks everyone :-) I still haven't worked out the picture thing so I'll probably stay as a mysterious shadowy silhouette for the time being. Carolyn, I'll see if I can find you on there! Hope everyone is having a good week - it's FRIDAY EVE hooray.

    Hello craft forum :-)

    Thanks Goose, good to know it isn't just me! Will see if I can get in touch with someone about it. Hi Knittingqueenuk, thank you! Ah Louise, I think you'd quite like Pinterest - loads of cool craft ideas on there, it's quite easy to use as well, mainly image based. Righty, I'm off for a little perusal to see what everyone has been making of late....

    Share your crafty tips here!

    If you craft with beads and knock a box of them over (which I manage to do, often) instead of picking them up by hand (or attempting to!), cut the foot off an old pair of tights and put it over the hoover nozzle and it will suck them up into it - keep the power on until you're holding the hoover over a container where you want to collect them, then turn it off. Much easier. The only downside is if you haven't hoovered your carpet for a while, you might have bits of fluff in with your beads!!

    Hello craft forum :-)

    Wow congratulations! You must be so excited (and busy!). Would love to see pics of anything you make, are any of you guys on Pinterest? Love love love the idea of a bouncy castle, that sounds like it's going to be loads of fun! Oh sorry to hear that, not to worry, am sure I will work something out, I will try it again on a different computer later on. I noticed a thread about it somewhere after I'd asked the question so I will check that out in a bit.

    By the way - how do you upload a picture?? (I'm clearly out of practise). When I select change picture the writing of both options overlaps each other and there's no 'upload' or 'choose' button for custom photo. Maybe I'll stick with my fetching silhouette pic instead!!

    Hi Louise Thanks :-) It's strange to be back on here haha! How have you been?

    Hello craft forum :-)

    Hi :-) Thanks. Yes I can see there is a whole new look! I'm sure like all changes it took some time to get used to. I do still craft, not as much as I used to in my own time(I had to do a lot of sorting out of craft supplies when I moved house a couple of years back) but mainly still jewellery making and knitting. I did try crochet but can't get used to using one hook instead of two needles - not sure I'll ever crack it now, think I'm just a knitter at heart.I do get Homemaker magazine though and it always makes me want to make my own cushions/wall decorations etc. Luckily I still rent and can't change too much about my flat or I might get carried away :-) I noticed some of the old faces are no longer active on here - Maggie50 and Dazzle10/Sequin to name a couple - I guess people move on and find other sites, shame not to see them around on the forums.

    Hello craft forum :-)

    Hi crafters, I often lurk on the forum to see what you have all been posting about - some of you *may* remember me (probably not as it's been a while - over three years now!), as I used to work on the original craftsbeautiful.com way back when I used to edit the website. Wasn't sure whether to post but decided to swing by and say hello to some of the old faces I recognised and see how you are all getting on. Looks very swanky and pretty on here now! Hope you're all good and still busy crafting, Kate :-)
