6 Months!!!!

6 MONTHS?!?!?!?!?!

Its been 6 months since I late updated this blog??? Is there anyone left out there?!?!?! :) :) :)

It has been a crazy 12 months - moving to the Gold Coast Hinterland, now moving to Mount Cotton, 4 kids, 4 kids and 4 kids. Gaaah! I am tired!

But - I have been able to squeeze in a little craft lately...

Last Saturday I headed down to Mudgeeraba to have a stall at Mamma's Market - sooo much fun.

Here are some picks from the day...

Some cute little Candy Wrapper boxes filled with fantails or mini mentos,

Gorgeous little owl Pillow Boxes, filled with mini mentos,

and some photo's of the display table. I love these greens and blues for Christmas, totally my favourite ever...both JOY blocks are $35 - let me know if you'd like your very own ;)

Gorgeous NOEL blocks, $25 per set - I can make these up for anyone that would like a set,

Gorgeous little coasters - great for teachers gifts - $10

And another shot up close. I love love love this 'peace' frame - $35 for anyone that must have it!
So excited for Christmas!!!! I have a number of custom orders under way and am desperate to work out some Christmas card classes, so stay tuned!!! :) :) :)
Thanks for stopping by!!

New Work

Hasn't it been a while! I can't believe how quickly time flies!

Let me catch you up...;)

A couple of weekends ago I was lucky enough to be able to participate in a Kindy Fundraiser Market. It was SO.MUCH.FUN! The sales weren't fantastic as our market was fairly small, but it was a fantastic experience making and crafting again and setting up and selling a few items.

Here is a photo of our table/stall...

My friend had this gorgeous white tree which we used to hang our sets of Lovenotes. It looked really cute...

These are some of the blocks I had for sale - the red set sold - I've used the lovely Enchantment DSP from Sale-a-bration on both the LOVE set and the SWEET set - I so wish I had more of that paper!!!

In the background there is a basket of peg magnets - these were the best seller for the day???

These are my butterfly frames - the large one has sold but the small ones are still available!!!! :)

There were also some spiral bound notebooks in the front and more blocks...

I love love love these butterfly frames - especially the green and blue - I'm quite happy if this one never sells as it will work in my bedroom perfectly!!! hehehehe.

I have just set up a Facebook Business page which can be found at so pop on over and 'like' if you'd like to! :)

Thanks for stopping by (if there are any of you out there left!?!? :) I have just started doing card classes up here in Beechmont so hopefully posting will become a little more regular too! :)

Have a great day!

A card!! A card!!! I made a card! I used the gorgeous Everyday Enchantment paper from Sale-a-bration (you can earn a whole pack of it for free! see this post) and LOVED it!

I needed a special card for a very special friend and so loved working with this paper - it is just stunning and I'm trying to earn a few more packs for free before SAB ends! :)

I've done a tri-fold card and used some new Papertrey Ink die cuts to accessorise.

Sorry about the photo's - my camera hasn't seen the light of day since getting a new mobile phone :( will have to remedy that! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Last But Not Least!

So i have one final Christmas card to share with you - almost a month after the fact! :)

I really love the 'Dasher' stamp - and I've combined some of the elements from my other Christmas cards to create this one (ie. vellum and the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder). And of course the yummy Glass Glitter - don't you just love it!

And one last close up of 'Dasher'. I've stamped him once in Crumb Cake and then again in Soft Suede slightly off centre onto a circular piece of Vellum and then stuck that over a cirlce of Whisper White that's been run over with the Musical Notes Standard Wheel. Once that was adhered together I've drawn a line of glue (with the 2-Way Glue Pen) around the outside and dipped it in the Glass Glitter.

Its very hard to see in the photo's but I have used the snowflake images from Snow Swirled on the back panel in Whisper White - just a nice subtle touch.

Thanks for stopping by, come again soon!!!! School starts next week so hopefully some craft time will present itself more regularly once the little munchkins are away!!!! :)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends!!!!!!! I can't believe how quickly the Christmas holidays have come and gone - only one more week and the kids are back at school! We have son no.2 starting prep this year - he's much shy-er than his older brother and not so excited about this new stage in his life, so we'll have to see how he goes? :)

I thought I'd finally get around to posting the last few Christmas cards I made for our friends this year - I fell IN LOVE with the Smashed Glass Glitter - so so pretty and even though it does make a bit of a mess, its much easier to clean up then the fine glitter! :)

All fairly self explanatory - I have absolutley LOVED Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler this year - makes for a great tradtional christmas card. I took inspiration for these cards from Tina White who presented at November's Brisbane Regionals - I LOVED her card and have cased the feature panel from it...

And a close up shot of that yummy yummy cherry cobbler embossing powder! How scrumptious is it!

And on a Crumb Cake background. I've used the Music Notes Wheel on the background of both card bases.

And of course the Seam Binding Ribbon. This stuff is so simple and easy to use - I LOVE it!.

Inside each card we also included a photo of our family with this lovely quote written across the top -

"From home to home, from heart to heart, from one place to another, the warmth and joy of Christmas brings us closer to each other."

I have one more Christmas card to show you in the next couple of days and then hopefully I'll be back in routine and have more fun craft to share with you.

See you again soon!!! :)
