It was probably about six months ago that I made these and I have to say my jewellery making box has seen the light of day since but just sitting writing this has made me want to get it out again and start creating other pieces of wearable art!

I love anything art deco/nouveau. I just think it was a very elegant time and the architecture and design works from the period are stunning. I swapped these on the cm&p forum and asked for the same style in return; the swaps I received were fantastic.

I have made a couple of cards for people who are celebrating birthdays in August, here's the first:

I am taking the computer but the wifi connection is always very temperamental where I'm going so I won't promise I'll be able to log on but I will try.
Not sure when I'll be back yet but I'll post as soon as I am.
Speak to you all soon

I've really got into free hand doodling as a design embellishment on cards at the moment so I thought I'd give it a go on an ATC. I like the result but I think it needs something else I'm just not sure what that something is!

- Patterned Paper
Here is the card I have come up with which I think covers everything it has to:
This is the first card I've made with a Tilda image and I love her although I think I need more practice shading using water colours. I think I have used everything I was meant to; the background paper is patterned, there is a piece of black ribbon behind the image, I've used 2 yellow buttons as the flower centres and you can't miss the flowers!! I am really happy with how the card turned out.
Congratulations on a fantastic blog and thank you Nikki for hosting the competition and for giving us all the chance of winning some candy.

Sorry the photo is not great, I took it in a room I don't usually use for photography and the light is awful! Hope you like the atc's though.

I just can't stop flipping the card, it really is a clever way of putting a card together.

Here is my finished card:
I love the colours and I'm happy with my doodled borders but I think if I ever did it again I would make the pink scalloped edge shallower, if you see what I mean! I love the flower and the button in the centre, I rarely use buttons even though I have a huge stash of them but I think this has inspired me to reach for the button box a bit more often.

- A safety pin
- A pipe cleaner/chenille stem
- A J-cloth
Everyone's atc's were excellent as always with some very ingenious ideas of how to use the objects. Here's what I came up with:
I love the little kilt which is made out of pleated paper, but I'm not so happy with the other two. I found the items quite difficult to use especially as I hadn't started making mine until I had already received quite a few from other people and I was determined to come up with something different to everyone elses! Hope whoever receives them likes them.

What am I talking about - the dreaded diet. I decided a while ago enough was enough and I needed to lose some weight in order to feel comfortable in myself and to hopefully be able to get into all my clothes which have been gradually moved to the back of my cupboard when they no longer fitted. I still live in my little cloud of denial that really it was all my clothes shrinking and not me expanding!! But I am determined they will fit again or in fact if I reach my goal they will be too big.
Anyway I set myself a target of a two and a half stone weight loss and today I have reached 1 stone and 4 pounds lost so I am half way there - yay!
Bye for now from a really happy
