Sorry I didn't come back earlier

I'm a bit slack with my Blogging, but I've finally got around to it.

The last week has been hectic.  The lead up to school breaking up was unusual - first we planned a farewell for my daughter's Grade 2 teacher (who had been filling in for Term 3) only to find out at the last minute it would become a "Yippee Mr Jones is staying party".  I was lucky enough to be invited and all had a ball. 

I took Steph & her friend Monique to see Hairspray yesterday which was a lotta fun.

I did get back to my bear although she's not yet finished!  I will get there - I need to there's show n tell due first Tuesday of term.  At the moment she looks like this.


Unfortunately/fortunately I get really distracted - so many things to make so little time.

Popped down to say Hello to Marg & Linda at Missy Moo's and now I've finally got the patterns for Freya & Messenger Birds by Melly & Me.  I've also gathered these fabrics to make them from.


I've joined an ATC (Artist Trading Card) Club down at Heaven Scent It's a wonderful stamping and paper craft shop owned by Deb that just happens to be at the end of my street.

Is so much fun, quite nice to do something purely for art's sake. I also love that there's no rules with these cards - absolutely anything goes so long as the size is 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  Oh & the cards can only be traded, not sold.  The first class I attended we learnt the Paper Peeling Technique.  Here are my finished cards:


We literally had to rip up pages from old books.  My grandmother instilled in me a large amount of respect for books and I found this quite unsettling, but I must admit the effect created is something I'd like to try again.  I've been op-shopping for old books & think I may have to find one that is falling apart before I can tear pages again. It just seems so wrong!

Today's creations are these Cupcakes - no, not ones you can eat, but scrummy yummy 100% fat-free ones to display on your kitchen counter or dresser.  I love them, even when you go in the kitchen & the sink is full of dishes they make me feel happy!



My hubby Neil launched our on-line business too.  Check it out - we'd love your feedback.

Hopefully I'll be back with my next post quicker than last time.

Till then,  Happy crafting!

Love Corinna
