Happy Birthday Kris

We'll my little boy just ain't that little anymore...
Last week he turned 26...
I really can't put into words how proud I am of him. He has turned into a wonderful, kind, thoughtful, caring and helpful young man.
I think he is just incredible.
This is the birthday card I made for him...

We always have so much fun when we are together. 

It was great to get the drawing pencils and pens out again. Its been too long!

Whatever you are doing this weekend, have fun.

Happy crafting

Getting prepared....

With 324 days to go, it's a great time to get making those Christmas cards..... to be honest I've got loads done already! I am soooooooo gonna be prepared this year! lol

Today I wanted to share a couple of the cards with you.....

I've had quite a few commission pieces to work on over the past few weeks, and I've got a few weddings to get making things for....... Let the spring time madness begin with that one! lol

I'm going to be looking for some challenges to join in with too over the next few weeks as all my dt posts have now come to an end...... It's a strange feeling.... but I'm sure something else will come along at some point.

It does mean that I've had the time to sort out and clean up the studio...... I love that place!!!

What are you all up to at the moment?

Whatever it is, have fun!

Thank you

Every year I like to make a set of thank you cards so that I have them all ready and good to go.
I write them for gifts that I am given for Christmas, birthday or just as a way to say thank you to someone.
(I remember after every Christmas or birthday as a child being made to write thank you notes to everyone and it's just kind of stayed with me - it's such a shame that a lot of children; and adults for that matter, just don't say thank you any more. And I think a little note makes it extra special).
For these designs I used one of my Hobby Art stamps - excellent quality, very reasonable prices, excellent customer services....... also bought the ink from them too....

 A little close up for you .......
I really love these stamps.... Watch this space for a lot more being done with them.

Have a great day, whatever you are up to.

Happy crafting

New month.... new posting......

Well January has come and gone...... and what a busy busy month it's been.
I have been creating lots of things and due to the power of blogger and being able to schedule posts, I plan to share a lot of them with you over the next month...
Of course I'll be creating lots over February too - so catch will be fun! lol

Here is the project that I wanted to share with you today.
A few years ago a friend of mine gave me a wreath that was made from willow and had buttons and fabric puffs on it.
Sadly over time it started to need a repair job so I pulled it apart and redid it.
I decided I wanted to make a sign for my studio door.....
 Kris bought me a 3d printer pen for Christmas....... So I used that to create the 'studio' sign.

 This part is glow in the dark!!! I just love it!!!
 Here is the sign now proudly hanging on my studio door.....

 I'd love to know what you think of it.
What have you got planned for a crafty February? I'm planning making more things with my printer pen...... It's a lot of fun. I've also got a few commissions on the go..... I'll share everything when I can.
