Here I am again!

I'm glad to see that some of the items I promised last time have made it to the site in the meantime. And yes, the knitted scarf turned out to be a crocheted one...hehe...

The other creations are still forthcoming but in the meantime, you can have a gander at the following new stuff:

... a birthday card here and here ...
... the first pieces of the EcoArt cards collection - there are a lot more "in the pipeline"...
... six "kolurwayves" paintings - I'm fairly sure there will be more of these to come as well...

Hope you have fun discovering my latest creative innovations!

Hello one and all...not much happening on this site lately, but I have been busy creating. Can't do everything at once, right :-) !?!

I did go out into the garden this morning and took some more pictures of the emerging life there - have a look at the photography gallery to update yourself on the latest "births".

For years I have been following the fabulous work of a Texan lampwork bead maker and I finally allowed myself a present and bought some of her amazing beads. The picture on the welcome page of this site shows some of the marvels, and soon I'll add the necklace I made with them to the necklace gallery - I just need to take pictures first which do this lovely artwork justice.

There's a new finished cross-stitch frame coming which I've been working on for the last...oh...three years or so ;-p. As soon as it was finished I dived into a new (smaller!) design of 6 bird chicks on a branch which is progressing much faster - stay tuned!

I still need to post the 2008 Xmas card, although you saw that on the site over the Holidays, and of course the birthday/Mother's Day/Father's Day season will be upon us again soon so I'll have to start creating some more good wishes for those.

And then hidden in the bottom of a drawer I discovered a scarf which I had knitted a while back - could be the first showpiece in the knitting section. Wauw!

I think it's clear I don't really have the time to sit around here and chat - I need to go take photographs, edit them, create new pages! Better get cracking...

Brrrrrrr......it is cold out there!!! No, this is not a repeat of my news of December 17. Then it was almost tropical. Now it's arctic! Just like most of Europe we've been having really freezing temperatures for the last few days - down to -12C at some point - which is amazing. It snowed on Sunday, and then it froze solid, so the world has been white for a while.

I hope, my dear readers (viewers?) that you've had an enjoyable holiday season and I presume that - as with me - life is returning to "normal"? Which for me means no daily whipped cream dessert (snif, snif,...), no more presents to open (so I'll just need to buy something for myself now...hihi!), and no more Sound of Music, Home Alone and Shrek the Halls on the TV. Sure sign that Xmas is over!

So I got right back into the swing of things and added some new things here: a fantastic necklace, new anniversary card, the very first crochet listing and a whole load of...you guessed it!...snow photos ;-p Can't help myself...haha.

Time to wrap it up. I'll be back...unless I turn into an icicle first!

>< (Eskimo kiss!)

Brrrrrrr......it is cold out there!!! OK, OK, I can't complain because we are nowhere near arctic temperatures here - just around freezing point, with a bit of a chill factor thrown in for good measure - but those of you who know me also know I'm a warm weather kinda girl ;-p.

But I did venture out and got up close and personal with some grass and leaves to check out the frosting (click picture for more) - can't wait for the "real" frosting on our Xmas cakes. Just one week to go...yeehaawwwww!

Wherever you may find yourself this Holiday Season...have a splendid time xxx

Hello again!

My sincere apologies for the very long delay in updating this site, but "life" intervened :-). Plus, as I mentioned back in March: there is a bug in the software I used to create this site, and the only workaround was to delete all the link buttons and redo them all one by one :-(.

A prospect I was not looking forward to given the amount of links in this site (and that might very well be the understatement of the century...)! But I finally took my courage in both hands and redid them all, so there should now be no more button confusion (I'm happy!).

As far as crafty things are concerned, I've added the cards made in 2008 here, here and here. I'll now be working on adding the jewellery which I created over the last months - come back soon to check it out!

Have a great day...
