New find

Hello again,

I wanted to show you the latest find for my craft studio.  I was walking past a shop in Modbury Triangle and this was out the front....HALF PRICE reduced to $50.  I just had to have it.....you know how things just start calling your name.  You know what I'm talking about I'm sure.  Now the thing is I have no idea what I'm going to store in it and I am thinking of altering it by painting around outside black.  I wouldn't be doing anything to the drawers themselves.  Any thoughts would be helpful and appreciated.







Thanks for stopping by.

Show me the Way!!

Hello and welcome,


Wow!! Isn't this just the best time of year?  I LOVE surprising people with gifts. First I bought 11 lanterns....yes I though that will be heaps.....one for the class teacher....one for the dear pottery teacher...one for the science teacher....two for the ladies in the office.....one each for the daycare ladies......and so on and so on.......and my list became longer and longer. So back to the shop to snaffle me another 7.   Still hoping in the back of my mind this would be enough. Well I managed to control myself if that's what you can call it. I made do with the now 18. There are none left....not even one for me.

Anyway I placed a battery operated tea light in each one, made some snowman tags and hung some ornaments on them.





















































































You will be seeing a pattern here this year....everything is either a lantern or a snowman.
Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Light me up Snowy

Hello and welcome,

I hope you are all well and slowing getting into the Christmas spirit .
Today I am sharing with you some Snowmen I decorated for my daughters class mates.  I made 30 in total....always have to have spares in case there is a malfunction and  a child gets one that's not working....right??  Always thinking ahead.  Well it all went well they looked amazing when I carried the tray into class with all they're little noses glowing brightly.  It was a lot of fun seeing all the delighted faces as they were handed out.
Hope you can make it out in the photo...they have a loop at the top so you can hang them from the tree or anywhere for that matter.  I would love to see a Christmas tree full of these...how cute. Only problem is the batteries only last about 2 days.

Unfortunately I cannot take credit for this idea as I did not come up with it. So in all fairness I am going to give credit where it is due. I found them on Pinterest.  This is the link https://picasaweb.google.com/Stampahowlics/LeadershipSwaps02#5835586672140004226

















I will post my Christmas cards shortly. Thanks for stopping by.

Postal Tags

Hello....sorry I haven't posted in a while been very busy creating Christmas gifts and cards which I will post once they have been received.

So for today's post.....some postal tags......Gone are the days when you heard the posties whistle coming down the road. Not that I remember this as I am way to young......but I hear that's what he used to do when delivering the daily mail.


This Red Tag I entered into a blog challenge over at RheddandRosie.blogspot.com a while ago.









I thought travelling on a train may require a book or two.

Here is a sneak peak into a Tag I have created for my Titanic Book. 


Just a bit of fun creating. 
Till next time....
