Zodiac Treasures

I have been working on new sections for my website, problem is I flit from one section to the other so have still not completed one unit yet, still, having fun along the way and that is the whole point of crafting to enjoy what you do, once the enjoyment goes out of creating, time to have a break.

So to kick off my offerings for Gemini comprising, card, tags which are ideal as bookmarks,
gift bag and tag and a scented sachet, all with a hint of glitter, ribbon and paper roses.

Currently working on Cancer, then may start going backwards plus other ideas in the melting pot such as Afternoon Tea. I love to create in themes seems to focus me more and to make shopping easier if you want a lavender gift, the cards and gifts will all be under one umbrella. No diving backwards and forwards through a site, nothing to say you cannot mix and match but co-ordination is the new buzz in town.

Thank you for visiting my blog, please leave a comment if you wish.

What has happened to January?

We are almost at the end of the first month of the year, just do not know where the time has gone. Have I achieved all I wanted to? NO! but must not moan I am happy and healthy so all is right with my little world.

I have a very good friend called Kim, we have never met but over a period of time know we can depend on each other, to offer support when needed, she is always there when I get down, helps me through any crisis however large or small, we email several times a week and know if we ever get a chance to meet will be like an old jumper, comfortable to be with. Wanted to use part of my blog today to ask us all to value friendships we have whether near or far without friends the world would be a lonely place.

The Lavender Collection continues....

I just love these bag frames and the this size is perfect to make for little bags, for evening, during the day or just to hold your treasures and secrets safe.

A couple of hand stamped lavender tags, coloured using pearlised pens, a touch of glitter, butterfly stickers and gems. The lace has been machine stitched to the base of the tag.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

2011 has finally arrived, resolutions made and started, dreams dreamed, wishes made,
hopes renewed. Each New Year I start a new calender and diary, new note book for my ideas a fresh start and it is a good feeling that we are able to cast off the old and look forward to the new, whatever 2011 may bring by joining together, supporting each other, anything is possible.

I have several projects and aspirations for the New Year and what better start than to have won the Vetcy Grand Prize with Victorian etc on line emag.
I cannot thank you all enough for your votes, this is a great honour.

Lavender Dreams

Lavender Dreams is just one of the new sections being added to my website in January, made in shades of lilac with the purity of white and sometimes the elegant scent of lavender, hints of ribbons and lace, delicate jewellery and vintage styles.

Over Christmas I made a sample lavender embroidered mouse, happy with the results and typical of mice there are more on the way........ they are approx 4.5" tall to the tip of the ears, have glitter cording for the tails, scented with lavender, sit on a table de dressage to bring a smile to a new day.
