I'm heading to the USA again in 2018 this time to visit Orlando so if you have any tips or info on visiting Disney World or Universal I'd love to hear from you xx
Iâ€™m a married Mum of two teenage daughters. I work full time running a cleaning company (up to 70 hours per week - phew) which keeps me active and gives me a time out to clear my head each day although it would be great of my phone didnâ€™t ring so often.
My feathered and furry family consist of King Arthur and Pope Francis the budgies, Levi the giant guinea pig and my psychotic blind silky terrier Corky and his permanently confused younger brother Buster. Iâ€™m always struggling to get more â€˜me timeâ€™ in my craft room.

ATCâ€™s. I cannot draw or detail paint very well no matter how hard I try. Mixed Media seems to be the style that suits me best

Interesting or Patterned Paper Pieces
Small Journals â€“ I love small flat journals with themes like â€˜a sentence a dayâ€™ or â€˜about my dayâ€™
Ephemera â€“ postcards, photos, magazine clippings, recipes, advertisements, images of anything in my â€˜Themes I likeâ€™ list (above), quotes, die cuts, alphabets, childrens book pages
Non touristy postcards
Pages with text in languages other than English or unusual fonts for use in mixed media projects
Tip in Journal Pages
Postage Stamps. Iâ€™m building quite an impressive collection now of stamps from all over the globe and am especially fond of stamps from Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand and Canada
Altered Matchboxes. I havenâ€™t swapped these in a long time as the postage cost both within Australia and overseas is beyond ridiculous.
Currently Working On:
Altering an old childrens Christmas book I bought from the thrift store that Iâ€™m converting into a Quotes and Lyrics Art Journal with the help of a truck load of gesso
Rolodex Cards. I have 3 sizes to work on at the moment thanks to two awesome retro finds at the thrift store. 3.25â€x1.75â€, 4â€x2.25â€ & an oddly sized 4"x2.5" that I have a die for.
â€˜Do You Ever Ask Yourself What Ifâ€™ book from Typo
A sentence A Day for 5 Years Journal
I have started a sort of Junk Journal although I donâ€™t like calling it that. Itâ€™s a glue book/smash book/collection of things I find or am given and really like book. I guess it's the way a scrapbook used to be before big businesses got in on the act. The aim is to keep the embellishing of the pages to a minimum and to keep items that I love the look of, as opposed to an Art Journal or a Smash Book where every item no matter how mundane is kept.
any size paper pieces
halloween die cuts, papers or paper pieces and halloween embellishments of any kind. It's so difficult to obtain them here in Australia.
printed paper napkins
the front page of your local newspaper
used postage stamps
book pages in a language other than English or in an unusual font
anything with Pisces on it
I have 30 RAK/Happy Mail envelopes available from my massive recent destash available for anyone that would like one. Theyâ€™re all different and include things like die cuts, stickers, papers, embellishments, postage stamps, ribbon etc. If you would like one, just message me your address and Iâ€™ll happily pop one in the mail for you.
