From tangled to organised

My embroidery threads have been kept in the same box for some 20+ years and it was getting to the stage that when I needed a certain colour there was too much time spent trying to de-tangle it from it's neighbours. I decided it was time to take charge of the situation, so I bought myself a couple of plastic boxes that came with card bobbins. It only took me about a month!!! (of part-time detangling) and now...drum roll please.....

No excuses to not finish all those unfinished projects now!

Cake O'Clock

We went for a lovely walk by the seashore on Saturday. The weather was unbelievably mild for October - it's back to it's usual cold and wet now though. The sea is so therapeutic! I always wish I could stay there all day.

I can show you this card now that my lovely niece has received it. If you would like the details on what products I used, please pop over to my post on Blog Tonic.

Hope you are keeping warm and well, and having a fabulous day !
Bye for now !

Folksy Shop Update

I've just been listing some jewellery in my Folksy shop. I decided that it would be better to have them listed than have them sitting doing nothing in their box.

If you're looking for some little gifts, then please pop by my shop and see what's there. Hopefully a few more items will be going in over the next few days.

Time to do some housework now ! Fun, fun, fun!

Tick, Tock ! A paper Clock !

Something a little different from me this time - all made with Tonic Studio's gorgeous dies.

The wonderful thing about Tonics dies is you get a perfect cut every time. I only used one type of card for this whole project. White hammered finish card.

If you would like a few more details on how I made this clock, please pop over to my post on Blog Tonic.

I've been wanting to make a paper clock for ages, and now that I have, my head is ticking full of lots of other clock ideas!  But you know what they say... time flies when you're having fun.

Butterflies and Blooms

 Life has been fairly hectic this week, but I have managed to squeeze in a little time to play with Tonic Studios latest release. The gorgeous Butterflies and blooms dies.
 I love the way you can layer these dies for a 3d effect.
My little daughter is home sick from school today, so I have just stuck a movie on the tv and now I am off to make something else. I have until the movie finishes. I better get busy !
