Taking advantage of the Christmas break to make some jewelry goodies for my Etsy store.  I love the brooches made from bits & bobs.  I love to put them on my bags, scarves, cardigans etc.  Click over on the side there to see what is on offer.

Back to Normal and Fun Tags

Well I am so glad that today my house went back to normal.  The Christmas decorations are packed away for another year and while I LOVE them being out over the season............come January I just can't wait to get my house back to normal again.

 And today I did a little bit of crafting too.  Productive day all around I say!!

These will make their way to Cake & Plate to sell, just some cute little tags to add to pressies.

Thanks for dropping by.

2014 - A New Year for Sharing

Wow, last year was a whirlwind and my paper crafting certainly took a back seat.  But I am feeling inspired and ready to craft again this year and so 2014 is a new year for sharing.  I think that it is best for me to share photos and short descriptions to make it simple and easy and to provide myself with a record of my crafting journey....I certainly miss doing that.  And if you want to following along this journey then by all means join me.

First paper crafting project of 2014 is my yearly calendars for my family.  One each for my Mum and my Mum-In-Law.  I have missed doing these the last couple of years (and haven't I heard about it!!  hee hee).

 Love that they are a $2 calendar that comes together super quick just using scraps and leftovers.

A quick, cheap and easy gift.

Enjoy your start to 2014!

Mini Book Classes at Cake & Plate

Well it has been a while since I have taught a craft class and the bug has me again.  Those of you that know me well, know that I LOOOOOVE Mini Books.  I have a large stash of mini's that I have completed over the years and I have taught a number of ones in classes.  And I am at it again.

Inspired by Amy Tangerine's Day Books, this class teaches you how to put together a unique, fun and interactive mini book that can be used for any purpose.

Come along to Cake & Plate and join in some crafty fun.  You can find details here: and book your spot.  Would love to see you there.
