Belated New Year greetings to everyone!

It seems amazing that today is the last day of January; I really don't know where the time has gone since Christmas. I have been doing some crafting, but not as much play and development time as I would have liked. As always there were the much needed and urgent cards to be made for January and February birthdays, a selection of which are below

Whilst making these, I took time out to make 2 "Quintiles" for the Chocolate Baroque January tag swap. Instead of tags, this year we are using 5" square tiles for mixed media art. The January theme was Winter Wonderland. Unfortunately I am unable to show these as I forgot to photograph them before posting. I was eager to get them finished and into the post because of the disruption of the snow and the fact that I was almost on the deadline. I am really annoyed with myself as I like to keep a record.

In the midst of crafting, I have been trying to come up with a suitable way of displaying the 26 tags I received during the 2012 Tag swap challenge. The tags I received were wonderfully diverse and a credit to their creators, who are a very talented group of ladies. Sadly I have yet to hit on what I think is a good idea so I shall keep working on it. What I did come up with however, was a better way of storing my nestabilities and other dies rather than on magnetic sheets in a box. All will be revealed in my next post.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog, and happy crafting.



  1. I'm intrigued about the dies storage idea....... like the diversity of your cards - that first one is my favourite.
