Here we go...

I've been wanting to start a crafty blog for a while now but I've felt thoroughly intimidated and overwhelmed by the amount of talent out there and my lack of ability to actually write anything interesting. But as I have recently been struck down with a virus which has left me full of ideas wanting to craft but not actually having the energy to do it I figured now would be the perfect time to bite the bullet and just go for it and I have to say I'm very excited!!

My latest crafty creation was a 60th birthday card for my Aunt which I was actually really pleased with! I used a combination of my Cricut (which I am completely in love with I don't know what I would do without it, although I was very VERY tempted by the Expression 2 POTD on Create and Craft yesterday, but somehow managed to resist, I almost felt guilty for my current machine!), my Cuttlebug (which is my most recent purchase and I'm also completely loving embossing at the moment), and some beads as my Aunt is really into jewellery making and I'm just getting into it too so I thought I would include those in the card as well as a pretty flower I made as I LOVE making flowers!
Thats all for my first post! I am up and running hoorah!
Speak soon


  1. This is such a pretty card too Nat and I think you should enter your work into the Make it Monday linky party.
    You will get lots of people popping over to see your work and it is a great blog for inspiration. you can enter all sorts of things. I usually enter myself and hope to see your work on there soon.


  2. This is absolutely gorgeous. Love the shape, the shades and the sentiment. Nicely done.
    Welcome to the land of craft're off to a fantastic start!
