I have a sister who is also my best friend she is also a crafter.We inspire each other or as the case maybe we lead each other astray in buying craft supplies.

Favorite Crafts

I am into all sorts of paper crafts i adore doing Atc cards matchboxes ,scrapbooking digital collage and anything new (like button fairies) Inchies and altered arts Please dont send fabric as i dont sew (sewing and i have never seen eye to eye lol)I do however love pretty ribbons and trims that i can use in craftwork.I suppose my craft style is shabby and vintage but id say more elegant than cute.

Comment: Julie...OMG!...I'm struck dumb with joy and admiration! The ATC is beyond beautiful, with the sweetest bluebird EVER, and the millinery flowers, and...oh, that gorgeous glass glitter. I'm ordering some from Amazon the moment I sign off here. Your extras are superb...just the prettiest, shabbiest (you know the way I mean this, I hope!) most gorgeous flowers and birds and gloriousness. I've used up all my superlatives, and now I'm going to do a bit of an Amazon shop! Thank you!

Comment: I am in awe of the beauty of these two tags. The choice of images and their combination are perfect. Love how you added the little tucks in the back of them. Something to think about for some of my future swaps. Again I am going to ask you what is the glitter you use. Would love to find it for Christmas swaps. Would be perfect for snow and snowflakes. As always a joy to swap with you.
Response: It's called twinklets I adore it it's glass glitter ages beautifully makes everything magic
