Welcome to a new week, my friend. I had a heart wrenching weekend, saying good-bye to my wonderful brother-in-law, Glenn. The Celebration of Life was emotional, but gave us all a chance to share our memories and stories of this wonderful person.  To paraphrase a quote I’ve seen, “How lucky we are to have known someone who makes saying good-bye so hard”.

So, as life goes on, I want to share with you some of the good stuff – new releases from Altenew, Joggles and more of my favourite shops.


I think Altenew creates the most beautiful florals, and this release is no exception. Take a look at what’s in this month’s release.

New From Altenew, Joggles and More

It’s difficult to get one photo of everything, so be sure to CLICK HERE for a really good look! Above is the ‘gotta have it all’ Marvelous Monthly Series Bundle, which contains:

I am totally intrigued by the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Silk Art! Watch this quick video from Altenew on how to create with it.

I hope that you enjoy checking out the newest release from Altenew, and pick up some of your favourites!


I love receiving my emails from Joggles, which share all of the newest, and re-stock items, in the store.  As you know, Joggles is a wonderful place for all types of media for creating – everything from alcohol inks, to paints, to washi & fabric tape, stamps, inks, stencils and so much more.

In this latest update, I immediately fell in love with the 49 & Market Meadow collection.  The flora and fauna images are so soft and delicate – have a look at the whole collection HERE! Pictured below is the Rub On Transfer Sheet.

There’s also some fabulous new stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop; you can see just them HERE.  Below is a photo of just a few of them.

On the top row, you can see some great 4″ x 9″ stencils – perfect for making those hot new slimline style cards!  I just love the intricate designs in the birds, as well.  Of course, if you love to use stencils, then you NEED to get some of the latest TCW Stencil Butter!

Their colour range has expanded to include the Platinum and Black Tie that you see in the top row. Joggles has a large assortment of colours, as well as four-packs back in stock!

While you’re visiting Joggles, be sure to add some of the Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and supplies at 25% OFF, the new Pink Ink Designs stamps, and Creative Expressions Designer Boutique Stamps.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
