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!
