Project Life....

Blogland seems buzzing at the moment with Project Life, and it has made it hard for me to resist starting my own project life album too. This is a way I can keep track of what's happening in my life, whether it's crafting,family,cooking,gardening and doing it all with my other love of taking photo's.
Now I just have to wait for my album and supplies to arrive.
Have you been tempted to start Project Life too?

I never thought my visit to the dark side could be so much fun! Lol! My first card was made yesterday morning, and with the arrival of my die and embossing machine in the afternoon, I was busy making felt flowers with my flower die last night. The flowers could be used in many different crafts! Now I am off to do some more creating!

A New Hobby...

We spent a few days away holidaying at Shearwater resort recently. Whilst walking around the shopping complex just over the road from the resort, I spotted a lovely little shop called Paperdolls Scrap'n'Card. I fell in love with all the pretty cardstocks, ribbons and lace! I purchased a few things, in pic below. I was given some catalogues by the owner of the shop to take and have a look mind was racing with all the ideas for scrapping, journals and cardmaking!!! 

I came home searching the internet on cardmaking and all the products available, and was quite overwhelmed at all the products available! Let's just say that the postman is going to be very busy delivering parcels next week! hehe!

A new shop opened up here in town a few months back, which I only managed to visit yesterday...and look what I found

the prettiest vintage lace, old postards and vintage buttons

They are going to come in very handy!!

all these ideas have had me looking back through my old journals, one of them Helen Stubbings "Life is Beautiful' journal. I really loved decorating the cover with my handmade crochet motifs and vintage laces and buttons from my stash. And now I have a few more to work with!(If I can actually cut into them that is)lol

Yes Life is Beautiful! Oh the excitemaent of finding a new hobby!

In the sewing room...

 I have been wanting to make a cover for my iPad and as I had a few Tilda scraps left over from another project, I decided to use them for my new cover. 

The cover is made the same way as the gathered clutch, which I made before Christmas.

the cute little sewing charms a gift from a lovely blogging friend (thanks Leanne!)

Another little thread bag made last week

love this blue floral fabric !!!

Now it's time to have a play with a new app on the iPad 'photo cookbook' and decide what I can cook this arvo!

Bye For Now!!

Tonight I completed my first project for is only small and very quick and easy to make too! This little thread catcher is from Natalie Birds Red Home book, but I think it makes a cute little gift bag to hold fabrics etc.

The fabric used is Rosies Love Letters...such a pretty fabric range!

But I do caution can't make just one of these little bags as they become addictive!lol!
