CAT Week: 1 – 8 April 2017 with Nat @littlecosythings

Hi lovelies πŸ‘‹ it’s Nat @littlecosythings & Happy Monday!! Thank you so much to our dear Angie @gamercrafting for another inspiring week!

I have been thinking & thinking of a theme for this week & i couldn’t decide πŸ˜₯so i’m going back to an oldie fave of mine – #craftastherapy_flashyourcraftstash 😍😍 we’ve done it before,& it was lots of fun! Whether you stash is big or small, buttons or fabric or yarn.. maybe knitting needles, or paint brushes.. if you have a craft stash we want to see it! Even if you’re just feeding your stash, feel free to share!

And of course, please keep sharing your crafty makes with us using #craftastherapy 😁

Ok Monday, let’s do this! See you soon!

YELLOW shines with optimism, enlightment & happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. And yellow will spark the creative process. 

Why don’t you go over to their pages & say yellow πŸ‘‹πŸ˜‰

GREEN is the most common colour in the natural world, & after blue, it’s the most common favourite colour! πŸ’š hands up if you’re a green lover!
How gorgeous are these green makes from #craftastherapy?! No need to be green with envy though, just go say yellow to the makers now πŸ˜‰

Hope your day has been filled with rainbows! 😘

BLUE is the number one most favourited colour. Blue invokes rest, & causes the body to produce chemicals that are calming! πŸ’™

So why not pop over & thank these makers for their calming vibes πŸ˜‰πŸ’™

Organised squishy stashes 😍 how do you store your craft stash? Mine is shoved into every available cabinet, shelf, drawer 😬 at the moment, & then there is the 10+ @sunjellies bags with more yarn & wips! Walk in wardrobe? Pfft.. walk in craft stash cupboard πŸ™Špoor hubby!

My dream is a vintage style cabinet like this one from @sweet_sharna 😍 or a hidden treasure bench like @stitchgwen! And such cute gorgeous little houses of yarn stashy goodness from @ella_makes, @cozamundo & @crochetwithme (i spy a huge crochet hook there too! 😍).

PURPLE embodies the balance of reds stimulation, & blues calm. Purple is often liked by the very creative or eccentric types… πŸ’œ well purple should fit right in here then!

And here are some very creative makes from #craftastherapy πŸ’œ

PINK represents compassion, nurturing & love. It is the colour of happiness & the sign of hope πŸ’– & it’s my FAVOURITE colour πŸ˜‰ i had to tell myself to calm down when making this grid, i could have easily tried to squeeze in ALL the pinks.

Why is there no pink officially in a rainbow?! My rainbows always end in pink πŸ’˜ nevermind, i made my own pink rainbow grid instead from these beautiful makes πŸ’πŸŒˆ

And that concludes my week! i’ll be back shortly with a new moderator to introduce!


Please welcome Heike @madewithloops πŸ’• i have the incredible honour of handing over to our dear Heike! Absolutely one of my crochet inspirations, & a beautiful soul. You’re in for a inspiring week! πŸ’•

Have fun!! Thank you for flashing your drool worthy gorgeous stashes with me! And for letting me indulge in grids of colour therapy 🌈

❀ Nat @littlecosythings xx
