November 2012

I really must get into the habit of posting on here more often!! mind it has been a very busy few months again! My stall at Shoppers World indoor market is doing great :-) I have dressed it for xmas now so is looking quite pretty....also am now taking orders for personalised xmas cards - love doing the special ones along with orders for birthday and anniversary cards.
Lots of new items have been added to stall including this years Rag Wreaths and also fabric tree decorations, plus some personalised fabric hearts. More pics will follow for those.

Catch Up!!!

Quite a bit has happened since I last posted on here so here is a quick update!
The class I hold every monday is going from strength to strenght and it is nice to see how the girls  have grown in their design of cards over the past few months I am so proud of them  :-)
I now have a stall in the indoor market at Ammanford (near to where I live), am there 4 days a week and throroughly enjoying it... getting repeat orders and new orders which is great :-)
Am suffering at the moment as hubby and I were involved in a RTA a coupe of weeks ago....not our fault thankfully.... annoying thing is we had only had the car for 3 weeks and it is a right off! BUT we are here to tell the tale :-)

Thought I would add a few pics of various cards I have done recently although lost count now of how many I have actually made over the past few weeks.....

Craft Classs update :-)

I can't believe that its week 4 of craft classes....there are 5 members and all great ladies - I think everyone is learning something even me!! (and there is still alot about card making I need and want to learn)
This week was stamping and embossing and also making a never ending card....which the girls took home to finish off decorating .... I look forward to seeing what they have done....I still have mine to finish decorating too.

My 60th!! Birthday

Saturday 4th I turned 60!!! have to wait till next year for my pension mind!!! anyway... my youngest daughter came down from Herefordshire  and she and my middle daughter put on a lovely buffet tea for us all - it was really lovely and the cake was one of my favs too carrot cake.....and thankfully it didn't melt with all the candles!! ha! ha!
I had some great crafty pressies so felt very spoilt :-)
Think I look like an old granny sat there with a cushion on my lap! lol!!

More My Craft Studio Samples - Jewel Britannia ;-)

Had great fun last week making samples for MCS's new Click Print Go cd set..Jewel Britannia....loved making the samples  and there are some great designs for mens cards on the cd.


This one was one of my favs to do , the 'Keep Calm sentiment is ona clear plastic'cd' that is used to protect cds when you buy them in packs, attached a brad beneath the sentiment so that it turned.

I did my first craft class yesterday....there were two ladies who are both good crafters so was a bit worried that they would find the class too easy! we did decoupage which I know both have done before ... but I think we all learned something,  both learnt how to tie bows without the use of a bow maker and also with out them being lopsided as often happens! Looking forward to next mondays crafting lesson should hopefully be more ladies too :-)

We made a card using the decoupage and papers from Trimcrafts Mimi range.

OK! Where does the time  go??? Belated Happy New Year to my followers! Let's hope it's a good one for all of us :-)
Have been looking into making and selling special gifts such as Diaper cakes, Towel Cakes etc Also going to start up making wedding stationery, favour boxes and wedding ring cushions, I am also hoping to start doing small card making classes from home......

Here are some of the samples I have made for My Craft Studio since christmas -
These are from the Setting The Scene - Shop Fronts - think my favourite has the be the black and white one.

The next few are from the My Craft Studio Simply Sentiments - these show you that you can make a card from Inserts

The last one is my favourite design I love the colours in it, although with the gift bag and notelets I changed the colours of the card using the MCS program.

Diaper Cakes

Having made some Rag Wreaths prior to xmas I thought I would have a go at making Diaper cakes to start (Towel cakes and cupcakes will be next) This is the first Diaper cake I have made.
