Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend, the weather isn't the best, for us though, that's an opportunity to craft!!!
My first picture today is just breathtaking , Sophie's best pet portrait so far!! This is Lewis's (Sophie's partner) dog 'Dexter '
Dexter is a Visla, Sophie has caught his personality perfectly, the portrait is a gift for Lewis's Mum. I know she will love it. Amazing job Sophie XXX
Michele's Magazine Review
Diecutting Essentials has a gorgeous free gift this month-a Lily Die complete with edger.
Here’s some ideas of what’s inside the magazine.
First of a few features using the lovely free gift.
More ideas-nice to see something different than cards.
Interview with Christina Griffiths who designed the Dies.
Dry Embossing using nesting Dies-I’m sure we’ve had a feature like this in another magazine!
Great look using paper.
Brilliant way to use small stamps-very impressive.
Succulents are very trendy right now-at lest these won’t need watering!
That’s all from me.
I’ve made the decision not to renew most of my magazine subscriptions-this is the only one with a couple of issues left. I’ll probably just keep this one as it’s my favourite technique. I found that I rarely looked at the magazines again and if I was honest, wouldn’t choose to have “bought “ the free gift that came with the magazines. Most of the freebies are unused so it got me thinking about my craft room & how full it is. I’ve had a harsh look at everything & will be having a mega destash sometime. I plan to create enough space in my craft room for another table which I can use for alternative crafts like felting or one of the many kits I’ve been bought as presents.
Anyway-that’s the plan in my head, if it ever happens is another thing entirely!!!
This is a small selection of the other crafty items I’ve accumulated.
Michele, we are going to miss your weekly feature, I am so very grateful that you have given so much of your precious time to share this amazing feature each week, you should have been on commission as many of us have purchased magazines on the back of your review. I look forward to seeing the reviews that you are still able to do, there will always be a spot open for you on my blog my lovely. It looks like you are going to be super busy with all of your new projects, maybe you could review some of the kits you have tried?! No pressure of course. Thanks so much Michele XXX
Ladies I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
