Love Is In The Air

Hello Peeps.

I’m writing this from my winter apartment in Salzburg, Austria over looking the Salzach River, watching the snow gently drifting down, warm sox on, hot chocolate by my side. Well that’s my fantasy at any rate – the reality is that I’m actually sitting here sweltering in my stuffy studio, fan blowing all my papers hither and yon, doing little in the way of cooling me down, rivulets of sweat trickling down my back…… Still, I mustn’t moan.

So now, this being the month of LOVE we have our little Ode to Love mini book. This is made with ONE sheet of cardstock, measuring 7.5 x 7.5 cm. How nifty is that? It comes in kit form for R85.00 (golly, you can hardly get a pair of flip flops for that). It’s got all the bits and bobs you need for it – paper, embellishments, words etc. I’ve attached a few of the mini pages for you to peruse. I did mine on different couples but you could really do it on any love theme. If this holds no appeal, come along anyway and we can play.
Unfortunately (well for you maybe but not me) I’m off to do a week long mosaic course from the 22 – 26 Feb so sadly there will be no workshops. Sorry about that but I’m so excited I’m counting the sleeps.

Lovely new Keiser papers have arrived along with a bit of Making Memories, Imagenisce and Basic Grey. Also (about time!) double sided tape, tombo glue, chalk inks etc. I promise to have a lovely new page ready for right after my mosaic course, using the lovely new papers.

I’m not sure if I’ve told you that Rikki and I make Koolitz Cool Ties. You soak them in water, they swell up, you pat off the excess water and wear it around your neck. You’ll be amazed at how effective it is – great for all heat inducing activities from gardening to playing sport or even cos you’re menopausal. Let me know if you’d be interested in more info – we’ve had a fabulous response to them.

Happy scrapping until we meet again.
Kind regards

Nothing I like more than a clever play with words, so to end, I leave you with this…….. Enjoy.
