About

Hi, My name's Heather, I'm no longer a newbie and I'm a paper/glue/button/ribbon-aholic.

I love all kinds of papercrafts, especially cardmaking, scrapping & creating minibooks. I also enjoy various jewellery-making techniques.
I love cooking and baking, and especially like creating handbaked gifts for friends & family.

I don't think i have a particular "style"- i tend to try a bit of everything and love creating pieces tailored to the person who is going to receive it.

I am currently suffering from an extreme fabric flower fetish (who doesn't?!!)

When I'm not crafting i enjoy spending time with my special people, movies, reading, history, music and pretty shoes :-D

I enjoy meeting people, and swapping ideas and inspiration.

I never know what to put on these things.....I imagine once i get a few projects up and start chatting to more people, I'll update it!

<3



I've noticed some of you have posted a long list of likes/dislikes/would like/can dos, and i'll get round to doing something similar at some point, but in the mean time....
Colours: green & blue & everything in between, browns & earthy tones, purple, red, black, black n white, black n white n a contrast....i'm a bit of a Rainbow Brite!
Patterns: anything goes! but especially like polka dots, stripes & tartany checks.
Style-wise I'm a real hodgepodge! Vintage, gothic, anime, cute, kawaii...
Music: mostly rock, indie, cheesy dance
Literature/TV/Movies: tend to prefer thrillers/horror

Love baking(anything cupcake themed),
shoes(i'm an irregular choice/iron fist girl) so anything funky shoe related,
red wine,
black coffee,
corsets,
vampires,
chocolate
Hello Kitty,
zombies,
heavy eye makeup,
Alice in wonderland,
Nightmare before Christmas,
Oz,
Muppets - esp. Elmo,
sushi,
spicy food,
cartoons,
Cherries & strawberries - to eat, to wear, to cut & stick & sew.....
RIBBONS N BIBBINS N BOWS & BUTTONS....

I HATE: Celebrity culture- i have NO interest in who is dating who or people who are "famous" or who is wearing what
Soaps (the Corrie-enders type! I <3 the yummy smelling kind)

ULTIMATELY, I LOVE ANYTHING HANDCRAFTED!!

They're really cute!
I want to make them too, but I don't get step 2 & 3 ;o
What do you mean with 'Stitch around the edge with a running stitch'?
And what's the circle in step 3?
Hope you can help me Happy

I'm debating covering the dino in clear nail polish, worried that the pen will come off. Have you found that pen comes off shrink plastic?

I was sitting at my laptop and just burst out laughing. Needless to say my hubby on the otherside of the room was very confused, until I showed it to him, then he dies laughing too!
