Show Stopper!

I was recently encouraged to enter some cards and craft in a local show.

Luckily I had some already made that were ready to go. Although I made a special one to fit the theme of the show as it was Remembrance Day.

I am proud to say that I received a 1st and 2nd for my cards and a 1st for my off the page project. (I probably should disclose that I was the only one who entered 🙄)

So if anyone would like to learn how to make a card and give me some competition for next years show, let me know!

I was also given prizes!! (can’t wait to use them)

A big thank you to all involved to make it happen.

It’s Published!

It was fantastic to see that one of the cards I had submitted to a magazine has been published!

This card was sent as part of a competition – while it didn’t win any prizes it still made it into the Australian Simply Cards magazine.

Things may not always go as you planned, but don’t give up. Something good is just around the corner!

Happy Crafting!

SMA – Made in May

Made in May is a chance for many to help raise awareness and money for SMA Australia by making and selling handmade items. “Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a degenerative motor neuron disease. SMA affects infants, children and adults worldwide. It is suggested that incidence of SMA occurs one in 10,000 births[1]. It is a complex disease affecting individuals across the lifespan for which to date, there is no known cure.” For a more in depth explanation please go to http://smaaustralia.org.au/sma/general-sma-info/
I have decided to participate in Made in May as I personally know a young girl with SMA. As the info will tell you, their intellect is not affected. This young girl while quiet, is also very observant and won’t hesitate to tell on her younger brother! She is able to attend school and participate in some activities, but as her body doesn’t move and function quite the same as the other children she needs more supervision and help. She can be as stubborn as any other child and will make her feelings and thoughts known if she is asked to do (or eat) something she doesn’t want to do! I look forward to seeing her grow up and hearing of her achievements.

I hope that by supporting SMA Australia this May I can help raise awareness and by donating a portion of my sales the money will help support families affected by SMA and for research into the disease.

What do I do?

Currently I am focused on making greeting cards for a variety of occasions. I am able to create wedding and birthday invitations too. I am happy to offer a Gift Voucher as well if you need a gift for someone.  While I haven’t started any scrapbook layouts yet, I’m sure the time will come. If you are a scrapbooker/card maker and are needing any help with techniques you have seen in my photos please ask. Maybe we can have a crafty date?!
