The ‘tweaking syndrome’ continues – this card has undergone a couple of changes – a butterfly has been added, the edges of the card dusted with ink and the inside has also been prettied up. Just thought I’d show you what happened before it got put into a cellophane bag and then put away into the box of goodies that might one go to market ……
Easel Card Christmas 2012
I know its a bit late – or a bit early – but I just started a board on pinterest called ‘Christmas in New Zealand’ and loaded this photo of a card I made last December onto it.

We should be writing and listening to our own Christmas songs, about warm sun and blue skies and sharing picnics with our families and friends. We must really find and celebrate our own traditions now……………..

This one was made for my book-a-holic daughter for Christmas 2012.
A Selection of Creations
A Book of Contemplation – I just wanted to make something where whatever page was opened there would be a message to uplift or make me think…… this is the cover of the book.
That is NOT his chair …….
……..and we have constant discussions about that, despite the fact that he does have his very own chair strategically placed so that he can keep an eye on the activities.
My Creative Space
Towards the end of 2011 I moved out of my bedroom and set up my ‘purpose-built’ play room…….
