Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Happy Christmas and a Belated WOYWW 290 to everyone.

Like a lot of people this week, I had completely lost track of the days, so I forgot Wednesday completely, mainly in the frantic wrapping of gifts and making these tags for the family.  I quite enjoyed doing them and it was a good test of my spelling under pressure.  They were done using whatever inks and stamps were within reach, including Red Pepper, which is one of my favourite ink pads at the moment.

I have not got near my desk for weeks, just working on any space that I could find anywhere.  That included doing this present for the granddaughter of close friends.  The stamps are from the Clarity Nursery Rhyme set, and coloured with Promarkers.  I used the stencil brushes and a couple of Adirondacks to take the whiteness off the rest of the card before framing it.


Now that the panic of Christmas preparations is done and dusted, I am hoping to get around all the desks on show over at Dunnit Towers and meet up with you all.  In the meantime, I hope you have all had a good day and met up with family and friends.
