  1. Those of you who know me will know that along side being a mum, running my business and designing i also write (yes i know, nothing like keeping busy!). I don't often share my fiction or poetry writing but as I am now back at university studying creative writing i thought i better get used to sharing my work.

    What better day to start than national poetry day!

    This is a poem i wrote a few years ago, please do feel free to leave feedback as i need to develop my writing skills i welcome all constructive feedback.

    Promised me forever

    You promised me forever
    You said you’d never leave
    I let you in my heart
    In you I would always believe

    You told me we’d always be together
    I took your words as truth
    Yet the damage has been done now
    I hold in my hands the proof

    Its hard to understand why this has happened
    Did I do something wrong?
    My family tell me I’ll be just fine,
    That I have always been strong

    They don’t really know me though
    They know nothing of my heart
    I struggled with life before you
    Before you became a permanent part

    I need you to be beside me
    I need you to hold my hand
    I need you to listen
    No one else will understand

    I don’t know why you left me
    I wish you could come home
    But I know where you are is peaceful
    I’ll forever watch the skies where you roam

  2. PhotoGrid_1443546805486I am really getting into stamping now and as well as using new stamps i have been going through my old wooden stamps and bring them back out to experiment with. I can across this beautiful garden themed stamp which was perfect for a relative who is a garden enthusiast. I kept the card simple colouring it with my Faber Castell artist pencils.

  4. PhotoGrid_1443004219693Santoro Gorjuss Treasure Book

    Equipment list
    Santoro Gorjuss 'ultimate die cut and paper pack'
    Santoro Gorjuss ribbon pack
    Santoro Gorjuss large bows pack
    Santoro Gorjus deco sheet - 'nightlight' 
    PVA Glue

    I loved decorating this little treasure book, although it looks like a book it is infact a storage box. It now sits on my desk with a selection of gems and buttons inside! 

    I began by decopatching the box with the beautiful nightlight deco sheets & PVA glue. Once complete i opened up the box and to the inside of the lid applied a strip of ribbon to make it look like there was a bookmark inside the book. Next i applied a large co-ordinating ribbon bow to the top corner of the book.

    To the centre i added a die cut image from my 'ultimate die cut and paper pack' this pack. This pack full of fantastic images, decoupage, die cuts and the sticker letters i have used to spell out 'My Treasure' are also supplied in this pack! I finished the book with a small button die cut embellishement from the pack.

    Let me know what you think!
