The First Post Post

Standard

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a long time now….you can’t rush these things!

A place where I can share my creations and write about daily life as it unfolds.  I have always been a journaler and I see blogging as an extension of that.  It will also be a place where I can save links to places I discover on the web that I love – and share with anyone who chooses to read my ramblings.

A little about me – I am a thirty something dreamer 🙂  mum to 1, sister to 1 and friend to many.  I love reading, cooking, scrapbooking, cardmaking, jewellery making and playing with my camera.  I cherish time spent with family and friends.  I crave a simple life and am actively pursuing that.  No longer do I see that busy = successful.  I am currently studying psychology and absolutely love my studies and what I am learning.  After having my own business (scrapbook shop) for the past seven years with my friend I am now enjoying the less stressful life of working for someone.  It has made way for more time with my daughter ♥

I would love to hear about YOU!  Leave me a comment with a link to your blog if you have one, I’d love to check it out 🙂

Today I made my first Christmas card for the year.  I LOVE Christmas (who doesn’t really!).

 

I got my heat gun and embossing powders out that I have not played with for ages.  After cuttlebugging the red panel I rubbed Versamark over the raised parts and sprinkled white embossing powder on.  I love the texture this gives.

I think I might make some more cards this afternoon.  It’s a lazy day here today so playing in my craft room sounds good.

I hope you are having a great weekend too!
