Finally

I finally had time to get some crafting done. Not only done but photographed and on the blog as well. Blogger has been acting up for me and my internet connection here in this little German village is quite slow (can take literally hours for photos to upload). So it has been a little disheartening to even TRY to blog about my crafting time. But here, AT LAST, is proof that I have gotten some things done. I also have some partially done crafts sitting on my table waiting patiently to be finished and photographed. Hopefully, I will be blogging on a regular basis again soon! Enjoy and let me know what you think...






Little gift tags I helped a friend make for her daughter's teachers' gifts.  We used PTI Tag Sale die, Love Lives Here butterfly Die, Double-Ended Banner Die, and Tiny Tags Die & Stamp set.  Other stamps used were WaltzingMouse - Musical Backgrounds, Text background & Frame it stamp sets. 

Not sure why Blogger keeps rotating my photos.  At any rate here is a shot of all three king-sized Hershey bars and their decorative wraps.  Also used Martha Stewart doilies...

I have been making bits and bobs of crafty things so that when the time comes I can throw a card or gift together.  I had made the little tag previously and it took just a moment to throw this card together.  {again frustrated with the rotation but after loading three separate times and all are rotated I stopped trying}

Another one of those little Bits & Bobs - All PTI products used here:  Wonderful Words dies, Love Lives Here Dies, Spiral die and Happy Trails stamp set and one of my many impression plates.

Wonderful Words dies and Additions Stamp set {love how versatile this set is) and another lovely Love Lives Here butterfly as well as another Tag Sale die.

Can you tell I am loving the Wonderful Words dies & Additions stamp set?  Keep it out on my desk (obviously I also keep Love Lives Here dies out as well.)  Websters Pages ribbon and PTI Spiral Die again.


A friend of mine asked me to make her daughter's piano teacher a card.  Here is what I came up with.  I really really like it!  What do you think?  PTI supplies are Botanical Silhouettes and Tiny Tags stamp sets, WM Musical Backgrounds, PTI Sweet Symphony patterned paper, Berry Sorbet and Kraft cardstock, Martha Stewart Doily again, SU! taffeta ribbon, PTI Envelope & tiny tags die.

Wonderful Words and Love Lives Here AGAIN as well as the Canvas IP!

Golly gosh have you ever been busy! Good stuff! Darn Blogger gremilins. I have had a blast checking out your work from this fun angle. Lovely personalized tags. The cards with the die cut words are so fun. All your projects rock! So glad you updated and didn't let the gremlins get you down. ;-)

Hey Angy :) You've been busy!! The photo-gift wraps and the music card are my faves! Looks like altogether your Cuttlebug got a good workout ;) I have written exams from Monday to Wednesday next week (9.30 to 11.30), so if you have time, I'd like to come over on Wednesday after that's done :) My friend Janina and I want to drive to Hockenheim on Wednesday or Friday next week - a new Scrapbooking Shop has opened there and I was wondering whether you'd like to come with us and browse the store :) Anyhoo, gotta go and get off to uni, hope you have a great day with the boys! Hugs and see you soon!!

You've been having lots of creative fun with all those projects! They're all so beautiful, although as a pianist I'm partial to the music teacher's card. ;-) Such a lovely collection of projects!

Thanks so much for your comment on my MIM blog post - I appreciate it! ;-)
