I wondered how long it has been since I posted anything on my blog.

Well, today I discovered I haven't posted ANYTHING since last year!

Oh, dear, I need to allocate time each month to update you on all my happenings...

Perhaps it's due to the topsy-turvy world we are liv...

Hello, friends,

2019 is drawing to a close, only 2 more days! 

My memories of this year are varied, as life usually is, don't you agree?

I have happy memories around spending time with family and good friends - whether it was interstate travel or enjoying some creative ti...

Hello! As I get older, I am finding the years just zoom by and 2019 is no different!

Do you find that, too?

I reckon it's because life is so fast-paced now especially if you work, have a family and hobbies! 

Don't get me wrong - I'm certainly not complaining...I work 4 da...

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...

Hello, my friends!

Can you believe it's nearly May?

It's been such a busy few months time has just slipped away!

My youngest son, Thomas, will be turning 30 in May - goodness, where has that time gone? Our eldest, Daniel will be 34! 

Do you feel the years are getting short...

A lot has happened since my last blog post. 

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

The company is called Uniquely Creative and it is based right here in Adelaide, South Australia.

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

December is here!! 

Now I feel I can get into the Christmas spirit. Today I'll put our tree up and decorate it. This year's colour scheme will be blue, silver and white. 

Next on the list? Christmas cards - I make my own so I need to write in them and get...

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...

 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!
