Exciting news!

Hi everyone,

Lots of new followers to say hi to. I really appreciate it and love reading your comments.

It's time for Handmade Monday 89 (gosh don't the weeks fly by?)

So, I've some really exciting news. I've taken the plunge and started my own website to sell my cards. Now I've got to work out how to promote it. I use twitter but am worried that people will think I'm spamming if I do it too much. I have facebook too, so am looking for new ideas. 

Of course the other major thing I have to do is add more stock (and lots of it!). Doing that, along with getting ready for Christmas craft fairs (no I haven't done that either), a possibility of moving house and needing to look for a new job, I'm rather busy. Thank goodness it's half term next week.

Anyway, you can view my site here.


Digital Stamps

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well.

As I said before, my work seems to go in 'phases.' It may be using promarkers or ribbons or whatever. At the moment I am having a digital stamp phase! Why haven't I done this before I ask myself. It's so quick and easy.!

On to today's card. This is another digital stamp that I came across on pinterest and I just love it! (Yet again I apologise for the poor quality of the photograph. I really must do something about that). I've coloured the stamp with promarkers and used Tim Holtz distressing ink around the edge, finishing off with 4 buttons, one in each corner.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:
I love promarkers - anything goes
Patties creations - autumn colours
Crafts 4 eternity - pumpkin spice
Allsorts challenge - Autumn colours
One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything goes

Look out for more exciting news tomorrow!

Hope you like the card

Hello everyone,

It's been a long time since I made some ATC's, years in fact. An opportunity came about to swap some with a fellow crafter and I made 3 to swap. Unfortunately, work and crafting commitments meant that I was not very efficient about making them and posting them out :(

But they got there eventually. 

These are what I sent.

Hope you like them.

Hello to you all and also to my new followers. Thank you so much!

Today I'm going to talk ribbon. All of us crafters love it and I have loads of it. Now, in Harlow we have a scrap store. Basically, this is where end of line of discontinued 'stuff' is taken rather than go to landfill. There is a large warehouse and playgroups, schools, charities can go along, pay a fee and take away loads and loads (and I MEAN loads ) to use. Myself and a couple of colleagues went along and we managed to fill  2 large shopping trollies full of things for school that could be used in art, DT and play construction. Fab times. We were so happy! Then they have a resource side, where you can pay for items. 

Look what I found (excuse the poor quality photos)

It's difficult to see how large these spools are, although you get a better idea in the last photo, but one of those spools has 100m on it! I paid £4.50 for the middle spool and £4 each for the other 2!!!!

OMG - Talk about bargains!!!!!

Catch up with you soon

UK Handmade

Hello again!

Well today is usually UK Handmade Thursday. This is a blog link that was kindly hosted by Caroline over at Carolee Crafts. Those of us that blogged about crafts, linked to Caroline's blog and we all viewed each others blogs. Unfortunately, Caroline has decided that not enough people were joining in and has decided to stop running this each Thursday. This is a real shame as it's such a good way to get others to see your work. 

So I sadly need to take this opportunity to thank Caroline for all the work she has done. I really have appreciated it.

I having been playing with notebooks lately. After a few false starts, I eventually got the hang of it. 

Not bad huh? I shall make some more Christmassy ones to take to the fayres I'm doing in December. In fact, as you all know I have LOADS to make or I shall have nothing to take!

Anyway, that's all I have for you today.

Have fun
