Thinking of you

Hi everyone,

I was commissioned to make a card last week. It had to be an A5 sized card and was my first of this kind.
I quite enjoyed working with the larger craft space. Visually, it's always easier to decorate something that isn't small.

Anyway, being a 'Thinking of you' card for someone going through a bit of a rought time, I decided to go with a neutral toned pallette and pretty embellishments (the card was for a woman).

Tell me what you think!

Inside the card

The Sentiment on the inside reads, "Just a note to let you know that we are thinking of you during this Difficult Time. May Brighter Days be just around the corner.

Have a lovey day!

Spring day is on its way :)

Hello!

Wow, we're still two days away from our official spring day here in south africa and already the heat is rising!

In preparation for this momentous occasion, which also happens to be secretaries day, I decided to make little treat boxes for three of my female colleagues at work. I filled each one with a lavendar soap bar, they smell gorgeous!

Upon seeing my 'brilliant' idea, my mom-in-law ordered a few boxes for her own colleagues! So, below are some samples I made, she'll be filling them with fancy soap too.

I will be making these to order should any of you south africans wish to purchase them, they're perfect for little gifts and trinkets! Drop me an e-mail with your request!

Have a great week everyone,
Me

Hi Everyone,

I created this stationery box, using inspiration from an image I found on the net, and will be making these up for sale (South African Residents only I'm afraid). They make wonderful birthday and Christmas gifts! You are welcome to contact me via e-mail should you wish to order, just click on my photograph at the top left of this page to see my information. They are available in different colour schemes, and I would be more than happy to accommodate your colour tastes.

International followers will be able to purchase the tutorial for this project as soon as I have sorted out all the nitty gritty's with regards to banking details etc.

If you're not looking to purchase, but just enjoy looking at the photo's, please continue to do so!

Have a wonderful Monday!
