Nearly the end of July

Hello, I can't believe how fast this year is going, it's the first week back to school for term 3 but I'm stuck home with a 6 year old who has the chicken pox, not a lot of fun! But he had a great time during the holidays we went ice skating, movies and to Te Papa museum, then in the last few days the dreaded spots started popping up. I have not been doing a lot of scrapping but have been doing a little knitting, the kids all have their much loved knitted slippers and I even did some socks for master 6 and with him sick and cuddly I've had time to knit for George (much to his discuss )
I've also done a couple of journal pages, I love the freedom of playing in my journals. So here are some photos and I will try to get some of the socks but he wears them and I haven't had a chance to take a photo!

And here we are trying to ice skate!

Hello!

It's been ages since I've posted and I must admit I have not been doing a lot of crafting, but here are a few journal pages I've done, I'm really happy with how my drawing of flowers is coming along but still need heaps of practice on my writing. I will try my hardest to get into my craft room and have something to post , until then happy craftin

Hello, just a quick post today and nothing crafty, below is a photo of me with my hair down and on 2nd April it's all coming off, Im a little worried about how I will feel after but its all for a good cause,  So if you are in or near Pongaroa come on down to the Hotel after 5pm some hands to hold would be great or if you cant make it but would like to support me you could make a small donation to this account: Shear for a cure 38 9006 0709257 02 
All funds raised will go to Pongaroa cancer support group and cure NZ, and we have some spot prizes for the kids who have awesome wacky hair styles. Next week I hope to have some after photos,

The End

Hello and welcome to my final blog post for Imagine If, Jo has decided instead of running a whole Design team for 12 months she will hold competitions and a guest designer for the month, so make sure you keep an eye out over at Imagine If and enter the comps for some fun prizes.
I have been so busy for the last little while and I am sick ( sick= no mojo) so I thought I would just play in my journal, to me anything goes in my journal, no rules, and a little fantasy, just have fun and try something new. So here is my journal page using Imagine if's beautiful new chipboard wings.
I have really enjoyed my time on the Imagine If design team, and would like to thank Jo and the other team member for an amazing and supportive last 12 months, and wish everyone the best in their next part of their journey in life.
Happy Craftin

Mermaids!



Hello and welcome, hope you have all being getting plenty of crafty time, this week I grabbed a piece of ply and made a wall hanging using the beautiful mermaid/people chipboard from Imagine If, you can chose if you want legs or a tail and your legs and arms can be whole or in two pieces, I'm in love! I had soooooo much fun making this but it did test my patience, I'm not one to let things dry naturally but for this I had to, and did you know its takes 24 hours for thick modeling paste to dry!

All my love!



Hello, today I have one of Imagine If chipboard tags that I have filled with chipboard cogs, an arrow and a piece of chicken wire then I have sprayed lots of yummy colour, on top I have colored a heart and sprinkled a little Finnabair love on top ( Mica Flakes) and used two different amazing alphabets from Imagine If which I've colored with  Lindy s stamp gang embossing powder which  is a new love for me, I've always loved the magic of embossing powders but the colors of Lindy s is amazing! Then hanging on the bottom of my tag is Imagine If's new keys and locks, which I've embossed with metal color embossing powder and a coat of UTEE'S which has given them life, They look so real, its amazing!


Happy Craftin
