I just wanted to pop in today and wish all my readers that celebrate Easter and Passover a happy and blessed weekend. Easter seemed to creep up on me fast this year, so I did not do any Easter crafts, not even any cards for my family. But with so much else to do, it’s… Continue reading Happy Easter Everyone!
Hi All! Following the brilliant workshops I attended at Stamperama, one of the tutors invited me to come to a weekend cardmaking course with her at Stamp Addicts. I went, and over the course of 2 days we made 14 cards! I learnt lots of new techniques in the process – from basic stamping, embossing and… Continue reading A Whole Weekend of Learning!
Hi All! 30 March was Mother’s Day here in the UK (it falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent each year), and that day is also my older sister’s birthday. This meant two cards were needed, and I wanted to have different designs so that they were very clearly for different occasions. My card for… Continue reading Double Celebration Day – Mum & Sister
Hi all! So, I’m trying to redesign the layout of the blog to make it look nicer and be easier to navigate. I’ve been working on this since Christmas, but am still not happy with anything I’ve found. Anybody got any advice for me? In the meantime, I’ve decided to leave this for a few… Continue reading Why is updating such a hard thing to do?!

Hi all! So, January has come and gone without me seeing much of it. I’ve had kind of a rough time health-wise, but I’m not here to moan about that. After such a false start to the year, I’ve decided to use the Chinese New Year as an opportunity to make a fresh start, so… Continue reading Starting again – with a crafty mess!
Hi everyone! First, let me just say I am so sorry for such a long break in posting! I’ve had 3 craft fairs in the last month and between the preparation, the fairs and the post-fair exhaustion, I’ve just not been able to do anything else! I’ve spent the last two weeks practically glued to… Continue reading As one year ends…
Hi all! Just a quick post to apologise for being quiet for so long! I was on a course last week to qualify as a wheelchair dance tutor (which I passed with distinction!!), and that’s kind of taken over my life the last couple of weeks!! Before that, I was doing a stock check of… Continue reading Life just keeps interfering!!
Hello Again! Something a bit different this time. I made some Christmas cards using images printed from the website CraftsUPrint, and they look really pretty. There are some one-off designs, and then some on a theme, so I hope you like them. I’ve got some more to come soon, and they are funny ones so… Continue reading Computer Christmas Cards
Hi! Back again with more cross-stitch cards I’ve been making since last update. I’m still attempting to make as many as I can as I’m going along by trying to make one craft project a day, minimum. That means if I haven’t done anything else during the day, I will make one of these during… Continue reading More Xmas Xstitch!
