I stitched on a few more cards since I got three very nice replies (one here and two on lollishops) about the flower stems. But I still need to practise to make the stitches neat and pretty.
I think if Sunday is nice and sunny I'll try to get my mom to go skating with me. IE we'll both learn how to skate and not fall.

What do you think of these stitched stems?
This is the first time I have hand stitched anything on card. I was inspired by a similar card in a magazine.
Would you like to recieve this card??
I have been living in NZ for 6 MONTHS! It does not feel like 6 months. We landed in Wellington on May 1st, and every time the month gets near to ending I think "Wow, we've almost been here another month".
Sharon - your little pressie will be posted today (it should take about 5 working days to get to you).

It took a while to pick my absolute favourites but I think I have to pick the apples and bows.
These juciy apples are just gorgeous! and must be healty, right.

I picked this little thing up on Saturday from a local craft fair. This is for my Gran's Christmas Present. She always wears a brooch on her scarf when she goes out of dinners or to church.
My envelope maker hasn't arrived yet. It should be here by tomorrow. Then I can try making some custom sized envelopes.

New pressie paper + stamp = A pretty birthday card. This is such a pretty card, with space next to the stamp for a special message or a photograph.
Buzy Fuzzy Card
Butterflies Jewels. I wanted to show my mom that these little jewels aren't difficult to use. This is a very simple card made from two sheets of paper and some sparkly little gems.
They make a wonderful impact.
A set of about 12 cards (or maybe two sets). I love these cards. I have made a little box for them. I love all the rubons! They are gorgeous!!! I'm not sure how many cards should be in a set...

I'm trying to find a way to get a checkout/shopping cart thing, but I'm not sure where to search for one.
My mom made her first Christmas Cards today! She made four cards from a kit to get into the crafting frame of mind, then she did another Christmas Card from patterned paper and a really gorgeous kiwi christmas stamp.

one of my new cupcake stamps. On some really gorgeous paper that has lines of glitter. And some of the flowers have glitter too!
The ribbon hides a "Yum!" and keeps the card closed so you can keep little treasures safe.
I.E Photographs of your daughter's birthday party.
Even better if you give this card to your little girl.

i really need to organize my papers before i start making anything.
my mom will be making some christmas cards at the weekend so I need to get the card blanks ready for her.
there is a craft expo here in wellington this weekend. I was thinking of going just to get ideas for if i decide to have a stall next year. but how many cards would i need to make??
and i have to get a small scrapbook/photo album for my dad. he's asked what I want to Xmas!
A cute little tag for a little boy.
A piece of card and one sheet of patterned paper are the only ingrediants.
I don't have much boy stuff so I had to cut out the arrow and cute little rhino to decorate this.
It's about 4" x 3" and absolutely adorable.

I need a specific code or something to get my template that I've been working on since last week to go live on the website. So I've just tried to make it look pretty and simple.
It would be wonderful to know what you think.
Need more coffee!!!!
I had the sudden urge to paint the florish a nice pink and put it on some bright orange paper. But then I didn't know how to finish the card. I remember seeing a doodled snail in one of my scrapbook magazines and decided to give this snail a chance at life.
But I'm not sure if I like it or if other people will like it??
My new stamps, inks and papers! I spotted these cupcake stamps and just had to buy them to use on cards exclusively for lollishops.com. I saw them and thought "Those would be perfect for LolliShops." A tiny mini brad finishes of the little cherry on top.
Stamps are so much easier to use with good ink and an acrylic block.

you can see it here but just remember that the actual pages are still a work in progress.
I need to make a lot of really pretty cards today. Felt a little dull and energy-less for the last few days.

A beautiful card to relax with.
I'm still waiting for my website to go live.
The cut off date for international shipping is 29th Nov. So I just want to try out this website thing and see if I can sell any Christmas Cards.
Yesterday we went on the train to Upper Hutt for a Scrapbook and Stamping Expo. Bought lots of stuff. Even my mom got some things. There was so much wonderful stuff and I had to stop buying a few things.
My mom ordered this chipboard table top Christmas Tree for her to decorate for her desk at work. And one for us here.
And I got some really cute stamps!
I was so tired when we finally got home. I didn't have any energy to play with anything but today I can drink a few gallons of coffee!!!
I'm still thinking about the next giveaway.

I started doing some productive work but a few hours ago my energy lagged. Right now I just can't seem to make myself do anything. It's currently 17degc and so hot! But its hotter outside.
I really need to get a bikini. I bought a lovely one last year but packed it in the container which is still in the UK. So I need to find another pretty one. I hate that some of my favourite shops don't have online shops. I always spend ages choosing the right bikini, and standing in an actual store for hours always feels weird.
We have to start getting our Christmas presents to send back to the UK. The last international shipping date is the 28th of November.
I really don't feel like doing anything.
3 October 2008
I need to grab something for lunch before I forget to eat.
I am still working on a few more Christmas Cards but I really need to take some photographs before I have too many things to photograph.
And I need to get onto that giveaway I'm thinking off!
I will get some of the stuff out now and post it later today. (I Promise.)

i've made five cards this last week. I've been busy with scrapbooking our photos from April. I'm on June now so I should be caught up with this album soon.
I need to stop thinking about my banner for http://LolliShops.com and work on the policies and descriptions. It's going to be open soon!!!!
