I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Trailing Ivy

Hello all!  I'm so glad you enjoyed browsing through my Not A Baker's Dozen of 2017, and I'm sorry I can't count to 13!

Just a sneak peek here today of a tiny ivy ATC which may well form part of next year's "not Baker's Dozen".  It's the first stop at Destination Inspiration of this new year over at A Vintage Journey, and I'm first up to unpack the travel bag and have a play with the contents.


I do hope you'll have time to hop over there and check out what I got up to.  And don't forget we've just started this month's challenge too - asking you to Think Inside or Outside the Box.  I hope you'll have time to join us on the Vintage Journey at some point this month.

For now, I'll wish you all happy crafting and I'll see you soon.

If you don't mind hopping to see the full ATC, I'd love to share this in the Winter Blues theme at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

A stunning work of art! I don't know how you do it, but each of your works is my new favorite! The details on this tiny piece is astounding! The icy translucency of this is delicious, and looks just like the ice in my swimming pool. Right down to the leaves embedded in the ice! Winter seems like your favorite time to craft, judging from your creations these past months. Sending warm hugs!
