Are you sitting comfortably ? then I shall begin..........



Hello guys, do you remember 'ages' ago I said I was really excited but didn't want to say anything just in case I jinxed it...well now that I have made it sound far more exciting than you will probably think.....I AM PUBLISHED !

Yes, I said 'published' baby ! after all these years two magazines came across my blog at about the same time and asked me to be in there magazines... the fabulous 'Cloth, Paper, Scissors' are doing a small article in their 'muse' section about the little houses I have started to make and are on Etsy and it is the issue that is out soon if not already.

The other magazine is called 'Making gifts' a new English publication which so far is wicked (for my American friends... wicked = brilliant) I have made a couple of projects for them, which are in the issue coming out in may I think and they also want me to contribute further projects which are already on the go and hopefully a small article where they 'meet me', my own little interview oooooh.

This year has gone so well so far, just hope it continues I have so much I want to do this year that I have numerous books to write everything in and so if I slack a little on here i don't mean to and I hope you forgive me :) I will add another giveaway soon.

Well as for now do you want to see what I have been up to so far ???
I can't hear you !!!!!!!
Ok here are some pictures of stationery that I have made, journals and ATC's, I have more things to show you but I need to photograph them first, my soldering is getting a little better..do you remember my first post about it ? ( I think it was one of my first posts and I think I used a whole reel of solder on one small glass slide ! ridiculous and it was so lumpy...I need a new iron but it wasn't too bad, I'll show you later..



















One more thing, I am going to set up my 'Craft Tv' blog this weekend as it is a Bank holiday on Monday too woo hoo, this means that I am going to design a project, video and photograph ho to make it with templates, instructions etc then I will put together a pretty goodie bag of things to use in the project and provide a password for it all at a small cost which will be advertised here on my blog and on Etsy, there will be a limit to the number of spots for each project... by the end of the year I hope to set up a couple of groups too, online and in person to teach crafts too or just to get together and craft things !

And finally.... this is a horrible photo but I have gone over to the dark side and I must admit I don't agree with 'blondes have more fun' anymore ;) nudge nudge wink wink !

Wooooo Hoooooo !

Yes I am here, no I didn't die or get some computer related phobia and I wasn't kidnapped by a gang of hardened kittens with bandanas, baggy jeans and small flick knives with a disregard for the law and a poor upbringing.... I was just a bit lazy and a bit busy too, but I will have some exciting news which I do not want to jinx yet but I will post it when it is published...(ha small clue there !)

Anyway I have been busy also updating my Etsy and making lots of new bits and pieces as you will see and remember the ATC size small paintings I did, well i have decided to put these on Etsy as originals and will be making more today of various sizes, I have also extended the range of items related to the small houses and some fancy ones with extra embellishments.

I also took the house theme a little further and made some from fabric which I hope to add to Etsy today too... Wow this work is building up.. I was going to let you know about a project that I am doing too but I think I will wait till later or maybe tomorrow when I have pics to show too.. it is going to be a how to make blog that I will be selling the instructions of how to make the item and provide supplies for it so pop back to find out more....

Giveaway ! yes I missed out March but I am going to do an April one, will post tomorrow...

So here are a few pics of what I have been up to ;)
