Mixed Up Saturday


Good Saturday Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you are all well and and ready to have a relaxing weekend, we have the Christmas Decorations to put away (well Paul does).  I must recommend a storage item I bought, its a safe storage box for Christmas tree Baubles, the vast majority of my Christmas Baubles are glass, we originally had them wrapped individually in tissue paper and then in boxes with packing between, they took up 3 boxes, 

You can fit 64 baubles in all together, I was surprised ours all fit in as they are quite large.  The only ones that needed the boxed section moved where my large teardrop ones. It was around £12, well worth it though, nice to have them allin one place  

Lilian's Son's Birthday Card

Lilian shared this amazing card that she made for her Son's birthday. She used Tracy Evan's Pencil Stamp to create this fantastic design. I love the 'spotlighted' area as it really draws your eye in. 
Thank you so much for sharing your son's card with us XXX

My Beautiful Art Journal 

With all this talk of Journalling, I dug out the journal Lilian made for me for my Birthday a couple of years ago, it has some beautiful tags in a pocket inside the front cover and a matching bookmark,  I haven't wanted to use it, as it was purely for stroking, I was afraid if ruining it.  But I bit the bullet and created the first page which I shared yesterday, Lilian very cleverly included both smooth and watercolour card, so I can use lots if different mediums and techniques.   I have to say once again how much I am loving this Art journaling journey 😍 

Michele’s Christmas Gifts

Michele shared her Christmas gifts with us, I have to say I have never seen a Memory Box Magazine Gift Box, I can't wait to see what you create with it . 
You have a Dymo!! I know you have wanted one for a while, I bet you have started labelling already!! Those pens are fantastic too, I would love to see how they look on Kraft and Black card. 
Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with us XXX

That's all for today ladies, I want to send Special Hugs to our Brenda,  I hope you are recovering well my lovely 😘

Love and hugs to the rest of you too, please stay safe my lovely friends,

  2. Good morning everyone.
    Love the Journal pages that our Lilian have made and the card you have made for your Son, it's very good.
    The box for your baubles is a great system to keep them safe. We have a box with similar departments but it's full so should get another one.
    Nice to see what you got for X-mas Michele. Love to have a labelling machine myself one day. The pens look nice and so do the magazine pack. Hope to see what you make. Nice see you in the cafe', you take care.
    Brenda, good to see that the treatment went well. Sending you a big hug.
    I'll been up since before 6am this morning. Too excited to sleep much, not just pain for once. Son's girlfriend will be here this afternoon. It was July last year that we saw her last.Hoping they can decide where to live together soon...
    Wishing you a good day and sending hugs to you all, Maria xxx

  3. Hi everyone
    Your journal from Lilian is beautiful. Will look forward to seeing your creations in it 😊
    Fabulous card for your Son, Lilian. Very inspiring to help us with those difficult to make masculine cards 😊
    Lovely Christmas crafty gifts Michele. I didn’t know Memory Box did a magazine either, may have to look into that. Enjoy your other bits too 😊
    Brenda, hoping you’re ok today after yesterday’s procedure. Take care xx
