But without further ado, here are a few things that I've made recently, most now to make sure I've got a decent display at a table top sale/craft fair in a couple of weeks.
I've had this set for a while now, and it hadn't seen ink, so I've had a wee play. Very simple, but I like them.
This is actually a little pizza box, which I'll either fill with mini cards or with treats, haven't decided yet. Again, very simple, I'm from the "less-is-more" school, I guess...
Mini Scrappage/Holiday Display
Took this layout and idea right out of the Idea Book and Catalogue (p. 27) and made my own version. Need to find a frame for it for the holidays, and after that, it'll go in an album.
Oh, So Lovely
Finally, a commissioned card for my friend's mum to give to her friend. She requested poppies on the card, and Oh, So Lovely sprang to mind. Loved watercolouring the poppies! She was so taken with the card that she actually paid me more than I had asked - how sweet!
Now, got to try and drag youngest daughter away from her toys and convince her that it's a good idea to play her nursery maths game for a little while... Thanks for stopping by!

"This Christmas I'm arranging to have cards made to send to the children at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. Many of you will be very familiar with the amazing work the hospital does. Many of the children are in hospital around the festive season but the staff try to make it as special time as possible.Wouldn't it be lovely for the children to have a special card that they can give to the nurses who help them so much, or to a family member or friend who visits them!The staff at the hospital would love for us crafters to donate a box of cards (blank on the inside so the children can write it themselves) in the run up to Christmas. The cards will be distributed by the play workers on the relevant wards."
Kate would love for loads of people to help - you'll find more details on her blog. Thank you!
