My First Mini Revisited

I've been really enjoying making itsys and minis but realised that I've not taken half as many pics as I should have. In fact I've become really bad about taking pics. Here's the first ever I made and really enjoyed creating too.

Below you'll see a mini in which I created for a friend's baby.

Altered Mouse Pad

I bought this mouse pad in IKEA and had to spruce it up a bit. Think it looks way prettier done up. So girlie, wouldn't you agree?

Christmas Cards - Yes, Christmas In July

I know it's Summer but it might as well be Winter, the weather is shocking. We've had hardly any sun but have had lots of gray days and rain. I decided to get ahead of the game and start my Christmas preparations early and so made these Christmas cards. I've decided to use these designs and go with a KISS approach this year...Keep It Simple Sweetie

Captured Fair In A Jar x2

I've just hosted a swap over on LOT{S}B where we had to make a captured fairy in a jar. I was lucky enough to make two of them and I'd so much fun creating them. They are a bit tricky to make but I love how they turned out. TYFL

I am calling to my crafty friends and anybody who visits my blog, to please support my friend's 8 year old cousin Ellie. Ellie has a condition called Neurofirbomatosis, which is rare in Ireland. She will spend the next 18-24 months getting chemo treatments to try and stop the growth of the brain tumor on her optic nerves and save her vision.

I am asking you to please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Ellie would love to get cards and so we are asking everyone to send her a card to help keep her spirits up. Her postal address is

Ellie Dixon
