We're Moved!

Just a quick catch up - we are indeed moved in to our new home. I am being a little slow to unpack though as I have had asthma and bronchitis since we arrived. It's bed rest for a few days for me, then I can get back into unpacking my craft gear. I managed to unpack the kitchen and bathroom things so we can eat, sleep and get clean, but the rest is having to wait!

I do like the new house. It is much roomier and more peaceful than where we were.

I'm thinking up new cards and scrapbook pages and will show you some when I can!

Take care all :)

We're Moving!

We're ion our way again. I know we moved last year, and we have had an interesting time in our house here, but it is too small for three adults, three vehicles, a handyman's workshop, a computer programmer who likes riding motorbikes, and A PAPERCRAFTER! The new house has more land, more rooms, and even a 6 x 9 m shed for the boys :) Well, the shed is pretty nice so I will probably have a corner there too.

We move on Tuesday and will probably be offline for awhile.

I've packed up my craftroom, my clothes, my just about everything, even the food. We're doing take away for a few days :)

But I'll be back!

Happy PaperCrafting!

Quilted blocks!

My blogger friend Suzanne is an expert quilter. She makes beautiful quilts as well as beautiful stamped cards and lovely scrapbook pages :) Recently I decided to try quilting. This is one of my first blocks. It's a pretty basic pattern and I know I have a long way to go - I need to make my stitches closer together I am told - lol! but it was fun to do and eventually my blocks will be sewn into a quilt for a youth shelter to use. I won't be the only one making the quilt. I am working with some of my church friends to finish it. Maybe we'll be done by NEXT winter - he he! It takes us all awhile to finish a block!

How to Make Paper Flowers

After a Scrappy Day at my house, we girls came up with a lovely lot of flowers. They weren't all made from paper either! I'd love to know how you make your own scrapbook flower embellishments. If you have a chance, please do show us how on
