I'm back!

Have you missed me? Hopefully you've been so busy enjoying school holidays and getting the New year off to a fantastic start that you haven't even noticed my blogging hiatus.

We've been having a lovely January. It's been a nice combination of accomplishment, activity and relaxation. We re-painted our bedroom, bought some new bedding, which then inspired me to make a set of 3 framed artworks to hang above the bed, plus I've sorted through lots of cupboards and drawers and had a big clean-out. We've taken the kids to see the Harry Potter Exhibition, the Illusionists, a couple of movies, and lots of catching up with friends. We've also had plenty of time just chilling out at home.

I've managed to squeeze some crafting in amongst all that, playing with my new stamps. I'll take some photos in the next day or two so that I have something new to show you. In the meantime, here's a very *bright* design from last year's stamp-a-stack using the Blossom Party die and a few punches:

The colours are Rich Razzleberry, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Very Vanilla and Wild Wasabi. I used the Big Shot to cut out one set of flowers in the 3 main colours and came up with 4 card designs, just adding a couple of punches.

I'm getting excited - Sale-a-Bration starts TOMORROW! I'll be back then to show you this year's selection of free products. I know you're going to love them.

  2. Welcome back Marelle and wishing you and your family a happy 2012. Yes, January is a wonderful relaxing summer holiday month in this great country of ours so am pleased you have been taking time out and enjoying it with your loved ones. Love, Christine B xo

  3. Sounds like you've had a lovely break! My hubby ordered a stamp set and some punches from you for me for Christmas - thank you so much for accommodating him!! Hopefully he'll have your number stored in his contacts for future presents :-) After reading this blog, I must say I'm curious to see the framed art works you did for your bedroom....any chance of putting some pics up for us to check out!! You are soooo inspiring!! Di Bird
