Final Day!

There are just over 24 hours to go
until the end of our March special deal!

Cyclone News

Thank you so much for all the lovely emails of concern regarding cyclone Debbie. Fortunately, we live a long way south of where Debbie crossed the coast so the worst of the storm didn't affect us. The system has been downgraded into a tropical low, which is just starting to hit our region this morning. The forecast is for flooding rain and high winds, but again, we are very safe in our little house and aren't expecting any trouble apart from a messy backyard and plenty of puddles!

The Last Peek...

This is the very last sneak peek I have to share with you before our release on the 1st of April. This last set is called Final Roll Call, and is all about celebrating our graduates!

Superb Fairy Wren in Watercolours

New Release Sneak Peek
Today I've used one of the images from the Superb Fairy Wren set to create a watercolour picture for my wall. I've posted some pictures below showing the different stages of the painting, starting with the digital image printed out in a very light grey colour - called "washout" in MS Word. The yellow pigment on the bird in the first two images is masking fluid, which keeps the paint off that area of the picture until you're ready to add colour.

JayDee (free pattern)

Aside from card making, I also love working with felt, and one of my favourite activities is hand stitching cute little animals and tiny toys. This little guy, named JayDee, is made from craft felt and stands only 6" high. It really didn't take too long to cut him out and stitch him up... definitely achievable in an afternoon!
If you're interested, I've included my hand-drawn pattern at the bottom of this post.


All the pieces, cut out and ready to stitch and stuff.

Some assembly still required.

The arms and legs are attached with buttons and unwaxed dental floss. 

 Feel free to make one of your own.
