Sheltering Tree...


Hi all...

Well, another hot day in Adelaide... unfortunately our pool is an exquisite shade of 'green'... soooo not happy!!! What has been an crystal clear oasis in the middle of farmland has turned into a lovely murky pond... AAAHHH!!!! Damn those farmers and their fertilizers... it has all blown across and fed the algae nicely... happy algae... not happy us!!!!  Poor Torsten is working madly trying to get it crystal again... he is getting there... what a shame I have to stay inside in the lovely air conditioned comfort... maybe some crafting is on the cards... oh yer baby... bring it on!!!

Anyway, back to to cards I wanted to share...

...these cards were made using the Stampin' Up! stamp set, 'Sheltering Tree'... this one is so cool! It is a clear polymer stamp set which makes it so easy to line up your images...

If you wish to purchase this awesome stamp set or any other Stampin' Up products, please don't hesitate to contact me via email listed in the 'About Me' link on the right...









...mmm... maybe a fresh cuppa is on the 'cards' (pardon the pun...) well.. it is very exhausting this 'blogging' business... you know how it is... just ask Chewie... he is fast asleep at my feet... snoring as usual.. and as I have been told numerous times... sound just like me... ....mmm... yer right... I don't snore... much...

Till next time...

Chrysanthemum Canes...



 Mornin'...

Well my first coffee of the day is nearly finished... that disappeared quick!!! Maybe someone else drank it... mmm... no one else is up yet... don't you hate that when you can't remember drinking your coffee... I do!!!

So, as you can see, I'm still polymer claying... is that a word?...'Claying'... I have definitely been 'Claying' of late... these little cuties were made using a very simple technique I found on good ol' You Tube posted by In Clay Nation... have a look... I was hooked!!!


Of course, the first lot I made were done using purple clay... those of you who know me will understand why... yes... bit obsessed with purple...




 Once I make these into jewelry, I will post more pics...

I can hear the kettle boiling.. again... and time for work... AAHHH!!!! Need more hours in the day!!!

Till next time...
Luv Deb :)

Bacon & Eggs anyone???


Hi all...

Well its been a while... I have been busy dealing with quite a few 'little hiccups' life sometimes presents itself with... crafting & blogging has temporarily been put on the back burner... 

I am now back in the saddle and feeding my crafting addiction...  I am working with my son this year to try and get some you tube videos out there... stay tuned!!!

Anyway... polymer clay is flavour of the month... this is an amazing YouTube project I stumbled across and said to myself... 'Oh... how cool is that!!! I soooo have to make one of those!!!'... and here it is...

Check out the video below to see what it is all about from the Sugar Charm Shop..


You simply have to love You Tube... I don't know how any crafter can live without it!!! LOVE IT!!!
...oh yer... and Pinterest... I'm not addicted... I don't have issues.... mmm... I keep telling myself!!!

Anyway... my version was slightly altered... I used transparent clay for the 'snot' bits of the egg on top instead of the translucent liquid Sculpey and white pastel... I then varnished it slightly to give it a bit of a 'greasy' look... quite pleased with my first effort... I wore it to work on Sunday and had a bit of a giggle... had quite a few odd looks as if to say... 'What the... is that an egg she is wearing???' Very funny!!!













Mmmmm.... Bacon... mmm... yummm.... yer... gotta love bacon & eggs... who doesn't!!!

Till next time...
