Better Homes & Gardens

Hi Everyone,

Just thought I'd share this with you from the Stampin' Up! website:

See Stampin' Up!'s products in this month's Better Homes and Gardens® Christmas issue. In the 'Now for All the Trimmings' article, some of the Christmas projects use Stampin' Up! products; you won't want to miss the advent calendar on page 43, which uses our Decorative Label Punch and Box #2 Bigz XL Die. Instructions and supplies (including references to Stampin' Up! products) are on pages 253-265 of the magazine. Please note: these projects do not use Stampin' Up! products or tools exclusively.
Enter their Christmas giveaway (see page 43) for a chance to win daily prizes and magazine subscriptions. Then tune in to the TV shows Sunrise and Weekend Sunrise from 1 December through Christmas Eve as they unveil each day's lucky winner using the advent calendar.

How exciting! I'm going to pop into my local newsagent tomorrow!

And do you remember back in Oct I took part in a Stampin' Up! Book-a-thon? For those new to my page, it's when Stampin' Up! Demos across the world try to reach the target of 8,635 workshops booked worldwide! Well it's happening again on Tues 6th Dec - Wed 9th Dec and if you would like to book a workshop and receive some of the marvellous hostess rewards, please register your interest here or via email. Workshops must be held between 10 Dec - 31st March and my tip is to book during Sale-a-bration from 24th Jan - 31st March as you can earn even more free products!

Plus I'm going to be running a giveaway during this period (prize tba), but anyone booking a workshop will receive bonus entries into the giveaway!!!

Thanks for looking,

Hi Everyone,

I've been a bit quiet lately haven't I? Well the main reason is a bit of a lack of mojo and also because I hurt my thumb whilst gardening a few weeks ago (bruised a nerve according to the Dr) and I've been trying to rest it in the hope of letting it mend itself. However, it taking longer than I'd hoped!!

Now you may have guessed by the pic above but there's an ESAD blog hop coming up next Thursday 1st Dec from 7pm WA time. I'd love for you to come back then and join the hop.... If you haven't got a clue what I'm talking about, a blog hop is a group of 25 Stampin' Up! demos all showcasing products in the upcoming Summer Mini Catalogue. We link to each other's blogs and you 'hop' from one to the other for loads of inspiration. :)

But before all that I hope to be showing you some goodies I had made for the markets last weekend and also some I'll be making for the Craft Thyme Christmas Extravaganza which is on 3rd Dec.

Santa Gift Boxes

Hi Everyone,

I tried making some gift boxes from the top note die...

Here's my Santa boxes....

Both look the same from the side so I didn't think we needed 2 pics of the same thing

More are ready to be put together including a reindeer so hopefully I'll get to that over the wkend.

The box sixe is 3" wide x 2" deep x 3" high then the 'face' panels are added onto that

NEW!!! ABC Frames!!!

Hi Everyone,

Lookie what I made yesterday!! Clean and simple Alphabet frames!!

The finished size is approximately 26cm wide by 31cm high.

So far I've only made these 2 but I can do custom orders in any colours you like, and should be able to source black frames as well. Email me if you would like to find out more.

Well, this weekend I'll be at the Campbell Primary Moonlight Markets in Canning Vale from 4-7pm and the Glades Moonlight Markets on Saturday from 4-9pm. It'd be great if you live local to meet you, so make sure you say hi!

Yes, I'm still here!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it's been quiet on the blogging side of things lately! I am still here and haven't run away :)

Last weekend I had a stall at the Baldivis Fair and on Sunday, a stall at the Bletchley Park Primary School Fete. So between that, the day to day running of a family and my class last night, I've been a bit busy!

Here's a couple of pics of my Baldivis stall:

Next weekend, you can find me at Campbell Primary Moonlight Markets on Friday 4-7pm and at The Glades Markets 4-9pm on Saturday. Please come past and say hello if you come down to either event.

And I'll be popping in more during this week, I've got a lot of things to make and share with you all.
