Stamping and Celebrating

Hubby and I are celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary this weekend! Who would have thought we’d make it this far? We have worked hard to stay together and have a lot to be thankful for, a nice home, two beautiful, successful children, (one is estranged but the other more than makes up for that) and… Continue reading Stamping and Celebrating

Out of Chaos comes Creativity

I keep meaning to sit down and write a blog post but as always life gets in the way and I get distracted by something else. I have however, been doing lots of stamping. The situation on the family fallout is static. My Son has a lot of anger which he is directing at me.… Continue reading Out of Chaos comes Creativity

New Name, New Outlook.

Goodness, it has been two months since I last blogged! It has been an eventful, dramatic and emotional time for me recently and while I have been doing some crafting which has helped, I haven’t been able to face blogging until now. Mexico was everything I expected it to be and more. I’ll say no… Continue reading New Name, New Outlook.

The Festive Season is upon us.

You may have noticed I haven't blogged for a month! I have been neglectful but with good reason. I have been working although that is no more (for now). I have also been volunteering at our local food bank. It is a sad state of affairs that in 2018 there are families and single people… Continue reading The Festive Season is upon us.

Inchies and Twinchies

At this months Hailsham Stamp Club we made cards featuring Inchies (1") and Twinchies (2") squares. This is a recurring subject for our club as they are so easy to make and assemble for a quick and easy card. I am also in an online Inchie swap so in addition I make a set of… Continue reading Inchies and Twinchies

Artist Trading Coins

I recently stumbled upon this new trend to decorate Artist Trading Coins. These are 2 1/2" circles of card which are traded in the same way as the original ATCs. I managed to find a circle die in the correct size and set to cutting circles from white card. Then inspired by the glorious weather… Continue reading Artist Trading Coins
