Hello! Goodness, how on earth did we survive summers without decent air-conditioning? Over the past couple of days Adelaide has hit 42C. You could fry an egg on the concrete outside! 

Luckily, we have great air-conditioning throughout our house and we didn't...

Hello, have you heard about Wanderlust 2018?

Hi, 2018 has arrived and I hope you all had a safe and happy start to a fresh year. 

We had a fairly quiet one but I stayed up and watched the fireworks from Sydney on TV and listened to fireworks in our own area. Boy they were loud!

John and I are both on holidays and i...

Wow - I've spent the past week setting up my Happy Place. Thank you to my husband, John! He has worked so hard over the past 6 months in between his day job and on weekends to get this room ready for me at Christmas time. Plenty of room when my crafty friends come over...

December is here! I now feel I can start my Christmas preparations now as December has arrived. I'm going to try my hand at December Daily/ December Documented this year. This is an idea started by Ali Edwards and is a great way to document your stories and pictures, t...

What a way to spend a day! On Saturday I went to an all day scrap with some of my favourite crafty friends. The day started at 9am and we left around 9pm. Loads of fun, laughs, good food and of course, lots of craft. 

I always pack way too much as I like to have so...

I had a lovely day with a few of my crafty friends yesterday. We kept busy making Christmas cards and tags. A lot of laughs and stories, too. I made a layout using the October Uniquely Creative Scrapbook and Card kit. If you haven't looked at these kits yet, go and che...

Another weekend is nearly over - why do our weekends go so fast? I've started to sort and purge some items from my craft room in readiness for the move to my new space. My hubby, John, is working hard on this new room in between his business jobs. Timeline is now Ch...

One of the most important things I am learning as I investigate my art is:

not to overthink!

To allow my muse to take over and enjoy the process along the way.

With that in mind October's Mission Inspiration came along and voila...my page is finished. Probably the quicke...

Where does the time go? As we get older time seems to zoom past Why is that?

Are we just too busy these days? Many of us work full time, have family members in need of care whether they be grandchildren or elderly parents. We pursue our hobbies and interests, too. Mind...

 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!
