happy mail, journal, tag

Playing catch up :)

Today was a good day πŸ™‚ we went to the local church and they had a chance to play the organ, so hubby enquired. The next thing I know, he is seated at the organ playing Danny boy!!!! Reg was so excited, he has always wanted to play a church organ. So, that’s a bucket list thing to tick off πŸ™‚

Here’s some pictures of the things I made for a lady called Roxy – they were to thank her for sending me a heart die and other goodies through the post πŸ™‚

The above has a journaling tag that pulls out.Β 
Also, today I received happy mail! Here’s some from Debby. I’m really pleased – I asked how she made a specific tag, so she kindly sent me the ingredients! :Β 
Then finally , I did the inside cover of the travel journal:Β 

The tag says what the idea of the book is. Really enjoyed doing this! Well, that’s it for a Saturday! X

blog, blog hop, blogging, comments, hop, links


I’m so excited!!! we are doing a blog hop on the group I am in.

What is a blog hop? Well, you visit blogs and leave a message on a post – the blogs are usually all related – ie – craft related in this case.

The message will say HI! etc and a link to your blog included, so that others visit. This increases traffic and hopefully, followers too.

I even made a graphic for it!!! πŸ™‚ :

So… im waiting for my first blog to visit!!! πŸ™‚ on a personal blog note, if you have a blog and say hi, then please leave a comment so that I may visit you too! :)

envelope, envelope challenge, mini album, UK happy mail Swap Group

Finally! The envelop album and happy mail.

Hello readers! πŸ™‚

I made an envelope album!

This is for a challenge on the UK happy mail swap group. Talk about challenge!!!!!! I found this really hard, yet apparently it’s simple. I did it in the end! I’ve done a cover, but waiting to hear what I do with the inside before starting on it. I quite like the cover, it’s the first time I’ve attempted it so I’m pleased. Now to find out what to do next! πŸ™‚

And I received some happy mail today from the lovely Sharon B πŸ™‚

I love it all!!! πŸ™‚ what a great surprise!!! my husband is confused by it all πŸ™‚ this came from sharon on the UK Happy Mail Craft Swap Facebook group. πŸ™‚Β

Travel journal cover

I bought the basic journal over a year ago, not sure quite what I’d use it for, but I knew I’d think of something!

I have wanted a travel journal for some time, and I found the basic journal in my stash today, so I started the cover. I’ll mod podge it to protect it tomorrow πŸ™‚ here it is:Β 
The corner protectors were put on with the Main Squeeze (crop a dile 3) and the picture of the couple is some Tim Holtz ephemera πŸ™‚ I hope you like it πŸ™‚
