well I am perplexed!!!

To say the least, yesterday morning my Ironing board fell to pieces and it weren't a cheap effort neither, so off I goes to Bexleyheath this afternoon to get another, and found what I thought were a fabulous ironing board a space saving one, now I am all for space saving espesh if I can fill the saved space up with crafting stash!!!!

Oh lord almighty what a kerfuffle I have gotten meself in, arms legs feet everywhere, and NO not mine either, the flamin ironing board well whoever thought up this one must have been having a bad hair day I gotta tell ya!!

And at £32 well it's going back tommorrow stuff the school shirts, I think i'll get the cats to sit on em and get the creases out...

I have never come across such a load of crap, and dangerous ain't in it, does anyone have one of these !!!!

Bella update!!!

Some are wondering if Creative living/pastimes has had their bellas arrive yet, well yesterday I did notice a nearly full stock of them, esp christmas ones, I know they are still awaiting more, but there a a good load to choose from so go give em a vist or ring them, they are always happy to oblige, and if ya do visit coz there ain't nothing better than to touch and feel scrummy stash don't forget those fabulous primas.....

Oh and another piece of important info, they are updating their website can't wait to see it, Teresa and Faye said I will be on there!!!!!

Wow have you ever seen sooo many Beautiful

Prima flowers in one place you can get them from here


Oh my I have had the most fabulous day at creatives living, (formally known as Creative pastimes) in Limpsfield, surrey and Kent borders... and look what I found, the ever elusive prima flowers amd wow do they have the most stunning array of colours and styles to die for, theres loads of em there is.... and I spied the most lucious velevet ribbon sets with colours that remind me of icecream and christmas pud!!!

I just has to buy loads of primas and also bought papers, In my opinion Creatives truly have the best selection of quality Scrapbooking/Cardmaking papers in one place and for me no one can touch them for the selection..

And of course the cafe is a must when visiting this fabby shop, the Homemade Curried Parsnip Soup,and door step bread was to die for.... Topped off with Homemade Cake... yummy to say the least!!!!

I have been a little quiet..... shhhhh oh soooo quiet!!!!

Because I have been asked to be a Guest Designer for craftworkcards recipe cards....

I have been playing with some scrummy stash that Sue has sent me, making all sorts of fabby creations, and this has kept me very busy, coz as well as making cards I also have to do instructions too... I am sorry I can't share my creations with you, they are exclusive to craftworkcards, the recipe cards are monthly sheets of 36 designs of cards and are about just cards, no advertising and are brilliant to collect...

I really have enjoyed the challenge and feel very honoured to do this and of course looking forward to seeing my creations in print ......

Take a look at the fabulous stash over at craftworkcards here

My Thanks Sue and Richard for giving me the chance to design for your company, and also a very huge thankyou to Julie Hickey who has emense faith in me and for the unending support you give your a true star ....

Magnolia moments!!!!!

I don't know about you But I just love these magnolias I can't seem to get enough of them, The weather here is rotten, it's cold raining and windy but I wanted to use warm colours, the images were sent to me by my friend Sue, (thanks Sue) and of course I couldn't resist the mouse one... I used the papermania paper and embellishment kit , my what a bargain you get loads in there, and the paper is 12 x 12, so great for scrapbooking too I used sketches from captaincrafter and Maria bell , I find on a day like this it helps the brain relax when using sketches and also makes a quick card or two..... anyways enjoy!!!!
