Do you notice how fast this year has gone by? Life can be so busy at times but it's important to slow down and 'smell the roses' as they say!

I wonder who did say that?

I've neglected my blog for far too long. I had planned to update once a month. Maybe I can update eac...

Hello, friends!

It's been a busy couple of weeks since the school holidays and I'd like to share a couple of mixed media projects with you today. 


I made these canvases for a teacher friend - these are her delightful children. 

I do have the "Happiness" canvas proce...

A lot has happened since my last blog post. 

I applied for a spot on a design team - and I was chosen!!

If you like scrapbooking and card making I recommend you have a look at...

Hello, my friends!

Time has again skipped away and I've missed a whole month in my blog. 

It's been a busy month in My Happy Place and with my full-time job, too.

One big change for me is I've been concentrating on getting my You Tube channel up and running. A very steep...

We have had a lovely weekend here in Adelaide. The sun was shining and it was great to finally get out into the garden and potter around tidying up and planning what gardens need some work.

Of course, John will do all the hard work with me supervising! Ha Ha

I've been b...

Good evening, friends! It's been a busy time in my craft studio this week as I try to catch up on some of my Wanderlust lessons, Mission Inspirations and other paper crafts I love.

Trying to keep up with lessons used to stress me out but now I just keep moving forward w...

We've had some rain in Adelaide today. Not enough and not where it's desperately needed. The southern parts of Australia are in drought making it tougher for our farmers. Many are now trucking in feed which costs them an arm and a leg to feed their animals. We are half...

 Welcome to my blog

I believe there is creativity in all of us. Whether it be through art in many different forms, writing, architecture, films...I believe art is magic and the creative possibilities are endless.

I offer unique and beautifully designed products. 

I make great greeting cards, mixed media art, and 'off the page' items ready for you to use as gifts or for your own enjoyment. 

I've been a paper crafter since 1996 when my Mum showed me gold embossing and how to make a card. Wow - I was impressed with how easy this was and I've never looked back! I make cards in lots of different styles, scrapbooking and planners, mixed media, art journaling and off the page creations. I love trying new things and learning techniques. I am lucky enough to have my own craft space (one bedroom) and this year I'll move to a bigger area which I'll call my Art Studio. I invite you to make a cuppa and enjoy your stay!
