Two things...

First thing...

I'm going to be moving to WordPress shortly, and am in the process of creating the links to make sure it all runs smoothly - so I hope you'll follow me there!

Second thing...

You could win a spot at Blog Boot Camp - but you only have till the 14th May (tomorrow) to enter - and it's a local (Cape Town) prize.



So, enter the competition (and maybe say @firenzecards sent you) and remember to look out for my transition to WordPress!

TFL!



    


Alive and well and going to the Harfield Village Carnival!

Hello one and all...

I know, it's been yonks! Here I am, alive and well and creating up a storm to have goodies to sell at my first "official" market of the year - the Harfield Village Carnival, on March 1st.


A friend and I will be at Booth 46, so if you're in the area (Africa/South Africa/Cape Town) then come along and say hi!

Here's one of the items I've been playing with so far...


Texture paste with embossing powder, then distress inks...

TFL!



    


Happy Birthday to me!



Yes, it's that time of the year - and I'm celebrating a big one! And I'm celebrating this day with Nelson Mandela & Richard Branson.  Exalted company I know...

I've been away a long time, I know.  There has been a lot of L.I.F.E. happening and I have had to concentrate on other area's of life to bring it back down to small letters.

Thank you for hanging around, and I'll be posting some creations in the next few weeks.

In the meantime feel free to sing Happy Birthday at any time of the day to me or anyone in general.  Make their day feel fun and happy too!

Tiara's ON!

Love

Helen


    


A Trio of Hearts...

I recently attended a workshop at Itz van Allez, where I learnt the wonderful technique of Dry Brushing.

These gorgeous hearts were what I made at the workshop.


The demonstrator showed us how to use a number of textures to create words, shapes and images on our wooden blanks, and I've been having great fun making more of these to sell.

TFL!

    

Up-cycling...

Up-cycling is the new Black...

While doing a bit of a clear out recently, I came across a big box of clear video cassette holders - not the cassettes, just the holders.

I thought they'd be neat to use to control some of my non-set UM's.  And they are.

However...


They're also great to keep my smaller mounted stamps together!  I keep chasing these littler stamps around my draws and now they're neat and tidy and findable!

I will do a better sort and categorise the boxes better than shown in the pic, but it's a start.



TFL!
