Update Time

It has been too long since I posted images of my creations so today is the day. HOpefully this won't take long and won't be too painful... for me!!

A quick update on my scrappy life. Most weekends these days it seems that if I am not out and about with my darling 6 yr old son.. then I am at home scrapping up a storm. I mostly make cards and the occassional OTP (off the page) album etc.

A about 3-4 weeks ago I made this going away tag album for a good friend Calley who has moved to sunny Mackay. We all wrote a special message on it to wish her well. (Papers by Kaisercraft - Utopia Range)

Next we have a Kaisercraft Journal book using the lovely Lily Avenue Kaisercraft range of papers.

(Not a very good image but you get the idea. It was very pretty in real life.)

In the hot pink we have a purse style card and sticky note holder I made for Ben's grade 1 teacher whose birthday was back in May (I think it was May) I found out in the morning it was her birthday raced to the shops bought the raw kaisercraft Note Holder and came home and made the card and decorated the note holder all before 11.30am same day! One of the quickest creations I have ever made but I was so happy with how it turned out. Plus the teacher loved it also. Ben was proud as punch telling everyone that his mummy made it!!
Anyway thats if from me for now. I just rememebered why I don't do updates very often. Blogger takes so long to load pictures.
Promise to come back more often with more regular updates. I need to find out how I can do mobile updates since these days I am on my iphone most of the time. Is that even possible with blogger? If you have any answers on this please post a comment :)
Have a good week everyone.

p.s If you like what you see let me know. Your honest feedback is appreciated.

Christmas is just around the corner

Did you know that Christmas is only just around the corner! It is only 44 sleeps, 6 weekends.... 3 more pay days!!! (well 3 more for me anyway!!)

So I thought since Christmas is just around the corner that I would show off some of the Christmas Cards I have made so far for 2009.

With Christmas so close I have start to make Christmas cards early this year. I will be taking them into work soon for those interested to purchase some. These days I mostly make cards but I also can make personalized gifts for friends and family. So if you want to give a handmade gift for a special person in your life like you mum, sister, nana, grandma etc then my Crafty Christmas ideas might interest you!!!

Christmas Gift Ideas:
Christmas Cards & Christmas Tags
Gift voucher holders
Candy Cane Place cards
Handmade Christmas Decorations

Photo Gifts: Send your overseas family a picture of you from 2009 perhaps in a Christmas photo card, Fridge Magnet, a Picture Frame or Desk Clock (ask me for some samples picture if interested in these specail keepsake gifts.

Please let me know if you would like to purchase any of my cards or handmade gifts. I have only made about 20 cards so far.. I really need to get cracking. If you are interested in some cards even if it might just be 1 then let me know so I can get an idea of how many late nights I am going to need between now and the 17 December when we are going on holidays!

They will be $ 5 each or for 4 or more $4.50 each*
(*Special one off orders are extra - please enquire)

Thank you for your continued support of my expensive hobby.
