Stuff I've Been doing..









Hello, I've been working on my techniques for sharing some of my other projects,finally after reading Kristina Werner's Blog recently,I set up my own little "Studio" and have been using the Macro setting on my camera to get nice crisp shots of cards etc...Yes I make cards...lots of them,I just found them hard to photograph until now! so stay tuned for some more from now on!And I've recently discovered Copic Markers...I used them on Lincoln's Aligator birthday card I luuurrvvve them, tiny bit focused about getting all 300odd colours..yeah well I did say I was a bit obsessed!!! LOL!

Now the placemats are the ones I re-covered at the Retreat a few weeks back,and I'm happy to report that they are all still,"Stuck" and wipe off beautifully,with my two boys that's a must!

The little notebooks are an obession I've had since I was young, I have always loved notebooks,and used to make my own all the time,but now I think I've finally perfected my technique! So quick and easy to make with scraps,and even old ugly spiral ones that I had lying around.

What else? Oh the butterfly frame,I just love these Amy Butler Butterflies and it took me ages to find some,not sure if I'll keep this or give it to someone as a gift..I think it would look good on a little girls bedroom wall...

And a LO!, this is a classic freemasons dinner photo,from the mid to late
60's of my late father in Law Ray,and mother in Law Ellen..

This is my big Boy dressed up as "The very Hungry Caterpillar",paper crafty I am,sewing and costumey,I aint!!!But he had fun joining in the parade.


Lincoln turns 4 on Wednesday, I can't believe my baby is growing up so fast..I do wish Hubby and I had started just a bit earlier,so I could have had just one more baby...I love 'em.

So enjoy!

Just a quick post...



Did these a while ago,but wanted to get my Lovely friend Angela's permission before I put her and her gorgeous poppet,James on my Blog!

One is totally my "intelectual Property" lol,so to speak,and the other is a direct scraplift from the new kaiser Catalogue...like I said my Mojo had gone totally,so I had to resort to scraplifting...

Cheers,B
