Tempus Fugit

  I have been a long-term fan of Steampunk style, and have slowly been collecting various bits and bobs in order to make a unique accessory for myself. Last week I found myself inspired to make a watch, so I sorted through my stash to…

Rain, rain and more rain…

The weather has taken a turn for the worse so my intended photos of the garden are still ‘untaken’. On the crafting front, I have been busy making red, white and blue bunting for work as well as some much prettier decorative bunting banners. The…

Spring is Sprung!

Well, no crafting for me this week!! I have divided my time between work (covering staff holidays) and giving the garden a thorough spring clean. The lawns needed cutting, the flowerbeds needed weeding, and a host of new plants needed borders digging to give them…

Out of this World

It’s birthday time again! I made this spaceship card for someone special, using these fantastic retro space papers and stickers. The card is a concertina type which gave me plenty of room to layer on loads of images. Happy Birthday Keiron xxx

A Matter of Balance

Having successfully started my journal, (and thoroughly enjoyed it), I am determined to continue…..so here is the second spread that I have designed. I saw the quote on a webpage, then had the idea for the image. I wanted to make a feature of the…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air……and I can now share my Valentine’s card with you all as the big day has now arrived. Hopefully the recipient loved it (well, there are no ‘Poncy Bears’ on it, so that’s a start!) I wanted to make something classic,…
