Thank You, EYG 7

Many thanks to the very kind lady who came to my door today after she spotted smoke coming from my chimney.  She was driving passed my house and stopped to check that the house wasn't on fire.  It is summer here so people don't have their fires going so seeing smoke coming from a chimney is unusual.
I had burnt a handful of personal medical papers I no longer needed.
The lady drove a white car, rego number EYG 7.
If you know this wonderful lady please thank her on my behalf.  I have no idea who she is but I am very grateful for her concern.  She has restored my faith in human kind. You can email me if you like.
Thank you,  kind lady -  I hope you & your family have a wonderful New Year!:-)

"Bella-Rosa" and "Rudolph"!

 "Bella-Rosa" checks out a Monarch butterfly!  With strict instructions that she was NOT to eat it....
 "Oh Mom" she said " I will be kind to this butterfly & I will NOT eat it!". She then rolled over & went back to sleep!
And here is a "Rudolph" I made from some card scraps.  His arms & legs were made from some scraps of paper which I run through my crimper.  He has a little green bell around his neck and a small white pom pom for his belly button!  He is about 8 inches in height. He has a bit of white polyester fluff for his mane!
Ok, on the post below I forgot to mention the Christmas card!  I used some 'Coredinations" card which I embossed.  One side is black the other side is a pale green.  When you emboss it the green side comes through.  I also lightly sanded it to enhance the green a bit.  Just thought I should mention that!
Ok that's it for tonight, it's getting late & I need my sleep!
Thank you for visiting, {{HUGS}} from me to YOU:-)

I've Been Busy!

Ok so here are all my latest creations!  From the top there is my first card I made using he SU Elegant Bird die.  I just love this card, it came out so nice.  The recipient of the card loved it too!
Next are some holders I made to put some candy canes in.  Easy & quick & used up small bits of card I had.
The next three photos are of some lollipops I decorated & put into a small basket.  I bought a bunch of the baskets at the local Op Shop.  These too were quick fun & easy to make...when I wasn't EATING them!!
Next photo shows one of the paper bows I made using the SU oval punches.  Really easy & quick, and fun of course to make!  I ended up making several of them for later use.
The birds on fishing line are hanging down the side of my pantry.  If there is a slight breeze coming in the door they move from side to side!
The small jar has ginger bread men/ladies (take your pick!) inside attached to a piece of string with a small peg at either end.  Either use them to hold cards or decorate your Xmas tree, or keep them as they are!  Mine are sitting in the jar, up on a shelf.  The ginger bread person was stamped & cut out using a SU stamp & matching die.  So cute & SO much fun!
The next photo is of a wire basket which I picked up at an Op Shop for only ten cents!  Woohoo I got a bargain that day!  It's quite a big basket & seeing as I had some 'left over' Xmas baubles I put them in the basket.
The Xmas stocking belings to "Bella-Rosa" and "Romeo-Valentino", my two gorjuss cats!  The mice on top were two I bought at a craft market.  They just fit nicely in the top of the stocking!  It's hanging on my pantry door.
The cabinet is the one I bought awhile ago also from the local Op Shop.  I re-painted it (finally!) and then hung it on the wall.  It has some of my crystals in it & a tiny shoe I decorated.  (Second shelf down)
The tiny box decorated with the owl (SU) is the box that Lorraine sent me a beautiful winged pig in!  I saved the box knowing ONE day it would get decorated!  So thank you Lorraine, & please visit her blog at  You will not be disappointed!  The little pig is on the top shelf.
Ok, onto the photo's of ME dressed as a Christmas Angel!!  Why am I dressed as a Christmas Angel??  Well I went to a bbq yesterday & the theme was red & white.  So I decided to go as a Christmas Angel!
The wedding dress I have on is one I bought from the local theater for $1.  (I have four $1 dresses from them!)  So I took the hem and train up and stuck red flowers & stars on the dress.  The red cape I already had in my 'dress up' wardrobe - not sure why I bought it and this was the first time I had worn it.  I punched out some white snowflakes & attached them with white brads.  (Easy to remove) I sewed on the tinsel around the bottom & added some glittery stars to the back of the cape. Oh yes, it also had bells on the bottom of the cape.  The wings I bought from the $2 Shop & I sprinkled glitter on them then sprayed them with hairspray to make the glitter stick to the wings. I also bought the halo & the cross from the $2 Shop.  I had red & white beads/bracelts around my wrist & had silver ballet slippers on with red pom poms I glued on!  I also made the wand I am holding.
The last photo is if the box of chocolate biscuits I WON for having the best costume!!  I was the "Supreme Winner" for the second year in a row!  The bbq was a lost of fun in spite of the heat & humidity.  I made sure I stayed in the shade all day. 
So there's what I have been up to lately!!
