Christmas Tag Update…..

I thought I would just share this pic that my sister Nadine sent me.  As you can see the Christmas Tags that I made arrived in NZ on time.  Nadine had made up some too and the people at her work received a lovely Christmas Gift.  Cool huh??


Teacher Gifts

Well Christmas is fast approaching…..only 5 more sleeps to go you know!  We have a very excited little person in our house….although the wait (for her) seems to be taking forever. 

Last Friday we took some Teacher Gifts into the ladies at Day Care.  Although Sarah only has 3 or 4 main Carer’s there – the other ladies are often in the room she’s in (if anyone is sick or called away).  So I made a little box for each lady at the Day Care and filled them with Hand Creams, Lip Balms or Body Lotions. 

I had made these simple Triangle boxes a few years ago – but got the Tree and Reindeer decoration ideas from a couple of friends – who I think had seen them some where else.   The Santa ones are my addition to the range. 


30 Quick Christmas Tags

My sister Nadine text me the other day to say…..I have to make 50 Christmas Tags to go on bottles at work..any ideas??

So later when I was talking to her – we discussed it a bit further and I said I’d make some for her.  Initially she said NO….cause she lives in NZ and we did not think the post would get them there fast enough.  But then a friend of Nadine’s came to Perth on holidays – so I quickly made up 30 tags and delivered them to her yesterday.  Today they are flying back to NZ so Nadine will have them in a few days time.

Now Nadine has to make the other 20 or so that she needs.

Before they went I took this quick pic…..it’s not great – but gives you an idea of what they are like.


Another Great Surprise…

I had just finished my last Blog post about the lovely things I have received from my SS Sue – when I went out to the mail box to find another great surprise. Lucky man. Thank you so much Sue.
Sue sent me this lovely altered CD case filled with cute note cards. Lots of hard work has gone into cutting out all the little bits that have gone onto the project. And I love the way Sue has inked the Clouds too. 


I’ve been Spoilt….

Ohhhhh I’ve got heaps of lovely mail in the last week or so.  Lucky aye?

I have a Secret Sister…..(well she’s not that Secret cause I know her).  She has sent me some lovely mail in last week or so and I thought I would show it to you.

But first let me Introduce you to my Secret Sister – Susan Joyce.  I first met (Cyber/Mail) Sue at the very beginning of the year when I was her Secret Sister.  Then we met in person for the first time when we went to the Canberra SU Convention in April.  We then found out that she was going to be my Secret Sister in the current Splitcoast Demo Secret Sister round – which was a bit of a laugh.  We caught up with each other again at Regionals in October…..here we are.

You can check out Sue’s blog here.

These are some of the lovely projects that I have received from Sue.

As I said….these are SOME of the lovely things Sue has sent me.  Aren’t they great.  Thank you Sue.  I will be sharing more next week.

Card Classes, Stamp a Stack

Masculine SAS

Wow what a wonderful Blog Hop we had.  It was so much fun.  Everyone create such beautiful projects and I loved seeing the variety in our ideas.  I can’t wait for the next one.  Thanks to all who visited and left comments….I hope you come back to see my Blog again soon. 

Well this week we did a Stamp a Stack Class.  The ladies had asked me to do Masculine cards…..so we did. 

The colours used here are Bravo Burgundy, Sage Shadow & Creamy Caramel.  It’s the Totally Tools Stamp set….which is excellent for all sorts of MAN occasions. 

Next up were these two…..

The colours are Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set.  DSP is Urban Garden.  These cards were inspired by Stephanie Pike.
