Just a quick card for today, using the Frayed Florals and Festive Foliage Template. A very busy day yesterday has left the family feeling a bit washed out today, so not much is going on around here. I am determine...Read Full Post »

I always like to add a new stamp or two to my collection each year. Apart from getting hold of the very beautiful Stampin Up, Madonna and Child Stamp set that I have wanted for years now, I have added a couple of Hero Arts stamps, including this one...Read Full Post »

Accessories can make a card can't they and in fact, although, on the whole, I prefer clean, simple lines on my designs, I do think that embellishments like buttons, ribbons and bows can really liven up a handmade card that you make for a...Read Full Post »

I wanted to quickly post another advent, actually made the year before last for my lovely Mum to hang on her cork board in the nursing home. I didn't get around to posting anything other than a photo so thought I ...Read Full Post »

No detailed project notes for this project but I have to say this was so much fun to make. I have this advent up in my kitchen, next to the stove and it certainly has brightened up the kitchen.Read Full Post »

I'm on a roll with these advents, as I wanted to make one each for a few different people in my family. They all have to be different depending on the recipent. Apologies for the dim looking photo, they are all a bit grim at the moment because of th...Read Full Post »

Those of you who have read this blog before, know that more or less everything I do has to be a quick and easy project. I love all the beautifully complex and very arty work out there on the web but to be honest, like most of you, I really don't hav...Read Full Post »

Apologies for the long break in writing on the blog. This year has been a challenging one yet again and it has been difficult to get down to posting projects with the everyday issues of life getting in the way. Lots of projects have been made but not posted but I realised that if I was going to get any Christmas projects done, I would have to get going on them and post them up to the blog. So if like me, you have not yet got going on your Christmas projects, dro...Read Full Post »

Just to say that we will be posting another Member template very soon. I just want to test it and do a few demos before posting, so it will probably next week!

Big apologies for the delay with updating the blog but life as ever has overtaken events. With one child bouncing off a trampoline and injuring a foot, to another going through important exams, let alone all kinds of other issues with other close family members, I am feeling stretched in all directions at the moment and completely run off my feet!
I have managed to do a few demo projects featuring the new ...Read Full Post »

We are reclassifying the blog posts, so they are in a bit of a mess at the moment. Bear with us, as it will take some time but will make more sense to be able to look past posts up by years. We should have finished this by the end of next week.

I wanted to say thank you in a very public way to a very, very special member of this site. She might be very cross when she sees this but I really hope not. She has a good sense of humour, so I'm sure I will get away with it!
The other day I received a mystery package and opened it to find a most beautiful handmade journal. To say I was blown away would...Read Full Post »
