With a button on top!

Well here is what I have been doing. Anyone who know me will know I have always been a crafter of some sort. I simply love fabrics, lace and all haberdashery bits and pieces, basically anything I can hoard (much to my husbands disgust!). I have been collecting doilys, tablecloths, beautiful handstitched vintage linen and chenille bedspreads.

Lately I have been very inspired by Jodies doily flowers and have been sewing up a storm, so much so that I have opened my own Etsy shop its called "With a button on top". I didn't realise how much I missed sewing until I got the machine out and started again, now it is set up in the loungeroom with not much sign of being put away any time soon!

Here I will add a big "MWAH" to my lovely buddy Jodie for her help with coloured doilies and bits and pieces, she is an inspiration to be around! YAY for Jodie!!!!

Now this doesn't mean I am over scrapping, ah ah no way! I'm still going to be doing that too, ah busy busy busy over here. So without further ado, here is a few of the lovely things I have been creating and please go over the my etsy shop and have a look at the rest of my goodies and please tell all your friends!!

Cupcake Pincushions

Cushion Covers

I have many ideas to add to the list of yummy things for sale, so keep your eyes peeled for additions to the menu!

cheers for now

Forgive Me Bloggers for I have not posted.....

Well don't fall over but I'm back! I have been very busy starting work and doing kids and other things coming up. I also have another project on the go but more about that in another post.

I have had a bit of scrapping time so I have done this layout for my Sisters Scrapwrecks challenge blog. Thanks for this one must go to my inspirational, doily flower making buddy Jodie. Jodie showed me how to make the gorgeous patchwork and modpodge background, how to make the organza flowers and I used some of her lacey trims too. WOW now thats one very talented lady! If you want to know how to do this background, check out this months Scrapbooking Memories mag, Jodie has a step by step on how to do it in there.

Also on here are a set of wings that I won from Arby, I love them Thanks Arby!!
cheers all
