Mother's Little Helper

I just wanted to share with you all, my delight of winning blog candy from Carole - Mother's Little Helper. Carole has revamped her blog and it's looking lovely, very bright & colourful.
I am adding a picture of the goodies & a link to her site.

Carole is doing a detox and i know it isn't easy, so it would be great if you can leave her some nice comments on her blog and offer her some support, her discipline is admirable. You will find her updates on there also.

Can't wait to enjoy my new surprise. Will keep you posted when it arrives and i hope to have some cards to show for it in the next few weeks.

Hedgehog Happy

Here's another card i have made recently with the Penny Black stickeroos, with chalks, Amy R sentiments, Prima Marketing & C.C. Designs flowers, nestabilities & papermania BG paper.

I have a few more i have made like these, all simple, but nice.

Birthday Card for Shary

I haven't made many cards recently, must catch up with some photos too,
this card is using Penny Black stickeroos, chalks, Amy R sentiments, nestabilities and papermania paper.

Hope to make this blog a little nicer slowly but surely & have changed the header with matching background, courtesy of Delightful Dots.

I have also added some Blog Candy that is on offer from a couple of other generous bloggers, which you can see in the margin.

Enjoy Monika


Valentine card pics

I know, it's a little out of date, but seeing as i haven't posted in so long, i wanted to back track and share some of my cards.

These were really popular and were sold to friends, helps me keep my craft tin happy & buy more goodies.


Just posting some pics

In view of my long absence, i wanted to post a few pics of my most recent cards.

I can't wait to get cracking on my ATS stamps which i got a whole 3 weeks ago and also the 3 sets i got from TCP last week - they took a month to arrive.

The cards i am adding were for a friends daughter's 1st bi'day, Mother's day cards and urm... yes just those for now.

I will be better at adding info on the stamps and bits i use on the cards, but i just wanted to add some eye candy for now. Any questions i'll be happy to respond.

Any advise on how to make my blog as beautiful as many stampers, will be most welcome.

Happy Mad Monday (night) Moni


Spring Piccy

As I haven't uploaded from my camera, i thought i'd add a pic of me with a little chicky.


Checkin' In


It is I. Once again having not done anything creative, per say.

I have been busy and my mom was transferred to a rehab like hospie. The last couple of days she is doing a lot better. Though we don't know when she'll be back home just yet.

I do have photos to share and lots of them infact (i will have to post them later or tomorrow).

Having started a mega clean up, most of my place is full of boxes and craft stuff. Yesterday i invited my friend Gemma for an inspection and spot of advise on my crafting quarters. Following which i moved my desk and made room for a new book case (bought and put up yesterday) as well as 3 more sets of metal drawer units (i now have 10) i my BF built for me last night & 2 are stil awaiting assembly.

Gemma came over again today and post inspection 2, she suggested i do workshops, yeay! Brill, i always wanted to do workshops, even just for friends. But i thought i'd need an outlet, but it seems i could do them from my "craft studio", (It's my way of getting respect for my passion, as other family members have their funny thoughts about my creative pursuits).

Anyway i like the idea, makes it real that i'll be able to do something like that so soon.

Much is happening here at the moment and i am doing most of my creative clean up at night till the morning light chases me to bed. Then it all begins again. :-)

Franci is back at work after a while off with a broken foot, so she has not shown me any new cards as yet :-) I'll have the craft bug bite her again when my 'craft studio' is ready for working in again.

There is so much dust, as i had a lot of stuff stored in the room since the summer (not craft stuff i might add) so i am holding back from doing anything until i have it all in order or near enough so i can clean my floors properly, as i have wooden floors, even after sweeping, you move a thing or 2 and you're more dust appears.

Well i could write more about my efforts, but until you see the photos of what was and that which i'm aiming for, it's a little boring i'm sure.

On a different note, i have 1 coment and one follower - yeah! Thank you Granny Ruth :-)

Well off i go to....


... yup, clean!
