Getting ready for 2010!!

HI! Here are a few a my favourite new cards I've made. I'm LOVING making owl cards. My 4 year old son helped pick the colours to make the large blue owl card.

I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the new year!

Next year....

Hi everyone...

Exciting news...

In January next year I will be starting in a new direction with my cards. I have had many suggestions of how to expand my 'hobby' and have decided to start 'Card Parties'. This involves me traveling to peoples houses/work venues, taking all my cards and also everything I need for people to make their own cards. I already have 5-6 parties in the making, which is very exciting! If any of you are interested in having a party let me know. I don't mind how far away you live...including the sunshine coast (Jodi!).

Also, just like Tupperwear parties, I also have host incentives and offers!!

It's a great excuse to have a girlie night/afternoon too.

Just send me an email to or leave me a comment on this post if you're interested.

It's been a very long time since I've posted anything, especially any photos of my cards. Sorry. have been busy making my Christmas cards, getting ready to sell them at my card workshop, the next Handmade Expo on 21st November, schools and to family and friends.

Josh, the boys and I have also been living in my parents home, in 'limbo land' waiting for settlement to happen on our home but once we move in I hope to be able to show you my Christmas cards before the markets.

Wow, it's been a very long time since I've come on and posted any cards or messages. Sorry. Life has been very busy with sick children. I think we are out of the woods now so I can get back into making cards and getting ready for the next Handmade Expo. This expo has changed venue so here are the details....It will be on Saturday 26th September from 8am-2pm at the Ipswich Turf Club which on Brisbane Road, Bundamba. I'm very excited to see how the outdoor market goes! I'll let you know.

Well, that's all for now. Hopefully I'll have time to post some of my new cards soon!

Looking ahead...

Hi there..well the Warwick Handmade Expo has come and gone. It was a great experience, though VERY COLD! I'm now starting to look ahead towards Christmas because that is my busiest time.

I'm looking at running a Card Making Workshop in the month of september, so if you are interested in attending please let me know. I already have ladies interested, I'm just needing to put a date to it. I'm thinking it will be Christmas focused. I know that it is early to be thinking of Christmas, but I thought that it would give you enough time to then make more of your own.

Well on that note, I'll leave you.

Til next time.

Getting busy...

After a very successful stall at the Handmade Expo in Ipswich I have under 2 weeks to get my stocks back up so life in the Mansfield house is all about cards! Even Josh is getting in to improve my work space by bringing home another desk and shelves! It's funny how my things have already filled up the new space and I'm still looking for places to put things.

ANYWAY...the next market I'm attending is The Handmade Expo in WARWICK for the Jumpers and Jazz Festival on the 18th July. Should be loads of fun!

I'll hopefully post some new cards that I'll be selling, in the next few days....

Time to rest...

Now that the June Handmade Expo is over it's time for myself and my 4 men (1 big one, 3 little ones) to go and have some fun together. We'll be away for a week so I won't be able to reply to any emails until I get back.

Thanks to everyone who visited my stall at the expo. I had a blast!

See you in 1 week!
