IN the last three weeks I have been able to help a few customers who reside or are on holidays, around the world.

They have purchased cards and I have written their chosen words inside the card, then mailed the cards direct to the people in Australia.

It has been a priviledge to help them out. Mexico, Texas and India. Sounds romantic, but they probably all fight the traffic like we do. That thought keeps me grounded.

Remember if you are pressed for time and can't wait for a delivery to your house, then for you to mail inside Australia, there is always this option.

Although I don't mail overseas for you, as the postage rates are so different, you will need to think ahead to have the cards delivered to you in Australia.

Today I am uploading another 20 or so new cards, into Child, Birthdays, Get well, Male cards and others. Have another look on the listing, you may yet be captivated.

Have a wonderful day, as I sit here in the craft room looking at the gently falling rain. Thank you mother nature, we needed a respite from the heat.

Here we are just 3 weeks from Christmas Day and already I feel like it was too short, too long, too hurried and too harassed. In short, loved every minute of it!  I didn't appreciate the hot cross buns on Boxing day appearing in the supermarkets. What were they thinking? I don't know any family that would or could put these buns in the freezer for 3 months anyway.

Well I'm just a hard hearted old hanna!

I've updated some new cards and unpublished some that have been sold. They will remain hidden until I get the time to remake them. Don't forget there are some cards for Valentine's Day on the website and others can be uttilized for that purpose.

I hope you continue to visit my website, I never know myself what will take my fancy and whether I will make 1 only or 3 at least of any card.

Enjoy your January.

Already 2nd of January 2017. 

Christmas has been busy with family and friends visiting for a few days. I had to take bookings for my guest room or I would have been sleeping in the only available place. The dog house!

It has been hot, very hot and then some more hot. Everyone loves the heat except me, I think I will visit Antarctica for christmas next year. I hope you have all had a peaceful and lovely year end and family season.

I have so much to load up and show you, but I haven't had the time to do them. So please check back in every few weeks to see what is new.

Welcome to the bright new year.

It's that time of the year when you try to visit all distant relatives. I've sent the 50 Christmas cards to family and friends. Prepared and sent up to 20 cards to my inner card making groupees.

Now it's time to do a quick run to the reachable relatives spread throughout Victoria. This means I won't be able to mail any orders for this coming week, but will catch up with them after 11th December.

I apologise for late deliveries, but I have to catch up with sick relatives who can't travel to me.

I wish you a peaceful season and don't panic too much.

Drive carefully as I will. I'll be back!

I recovered after my burst eardrum and my hearing has returned. Family members needed hospital treatment, and I took long drives interstate and returned, extremely tired.

Life seemed to be interfering with my hobbies and website content. I've made more cards, but when I got the camera out to take the photos, OOPs, it wouldn't work. So today my work is cut out for me, how to fix it, or if necessary replace it. Living in the country does not always mean you can rush down the street to the shopping centre, and replace the camera within 1 hour.  I am 100 klms away from a large shopping centre, or a camera shop. It's lovely to be in amongst the trees, farmland, grass and clean oxygen. But you need to be prepared for the occassional long trip, to buy a particular item.

I have made a few more wedding cards, and I need to have them photographed before I can load them onto the website. I hope I can get back to loading more content onto the website soon. Cheers.

Some of the fruit trees and ornamental trees and bushes are starting to break open into blossoms. It is a sure sign of spring. ALREADY, I hear you shout.

Last week it rained all the time, snowed on the high country. It can't be happening! The ornamental pear tree on the nature strip has suspicious signs of bud burst, so I'd better get the camera out. This blossom lasts only 10 days, so if you sneeze you miss it all.

Please don't forget Father's Day is coming. Many of the male birthday cards have alternate "Dad" and "Fathers Day" sentiments as well as the usual Birthday and Get Well sentiments. So do check out the Birthday cards as well as the ones designated Fathers' Day only.

Well the Postie has been and the rubbish bins are now emptied, it's time to check the mailbox, and drag the bins back home.  Time to check whether your shorts and T shirts still fit. Check your boat and life jackets, it's almost time. 

Have a wonderful week dreaming of a charming Spring time.

 

Back at my hobby after 5 weeks. It's taken that long to recover from an ear infection and burst ear drum. Not sure how much hearing is lost until a test, but at least I can stand upright, and work on my passion. Card making.  Forced to stay idle has been trying, but I will make up for it in the coming weeks. Working on more Christmas cards, so I am ready to enchant you with delightful and sometimes comical cards.

Today I want to show you one of the ones I have already prepared for "Fathers Day". Gosh they need a mention, they volunteer school pickups or drop offs,  deliver half the sports team all over the town and half the country side, each weekend.

Wouldn't he just love to relax at the weekend? How about the Jeans Lion card?

Hard to blog anything, when it is punctured with a chesty cough, and three keys hit together at the same time. Hoping that you have managed to avoid this winters malaise. I like the change in the seasons, it reminds me of Ballarat or Melbourne's weather. But (never should start a sentence with "but") this is the coldest all over Australia for 20 plus years!  Brrh.

As they say...... here is one I made earlier (before I started coughing). dream rider
