Wedding Photo Albums

Wedding Photo Albums Hey my little Loopy Loo's. is not an illusion.  Yes....I really am here to show you something.  A project....a real live project, Yippeeeee!  I have said in recent posts (not that bloody recent Loops....Jeez) that my brother, Jay got married to the beautiful Karen at the end of July this year. Well, my gift to them both was to make, well......... everything that could possibly be hand made, lol.  Everything I made was mine and Scrubby Loops's present to them.  Mind you........I don't exactly remember Scrubby Loops adding double sided tape to hundreds of metres of ribbon or embossing 100 favour boxes....not once, but twice.  He got out of that one easy, didn't he? lol. But.....yet being me........I forgot to take photos of everything I made.  So that is why I have yet to put up a blog post about their Wedding makes that was away back in July.  I am a little numpty and a ridiculous blogger.  Honestly, what sort of blogger/Cr

What'cha looking at?

Hey folks! I want to wish all my Followers a very Merry and Happy Christmas and hope 2014 is a kind and wonderful year for you all. And who knows.....maybe I may actually make an appearance in Blogland this year instead of being absent like I was this year, lol.  I thought I'd show you a little photo of my rather large fluffy torture of a cat, Nimbus.  Like all cats, she's obsessed with boxes no matter the size.  If I could have put a Christmas hat on her head, I would have. But she would be even less amused than she looks right here.  She's so funny.  She keeps us entertained every day.  That little face says to me "Hey....whatcha lookin' at weirdo? Go on about your business, can't you see I'm very busy being a cat in the box??  Sheesh!" A very festive Merry Christmas to you all.  And if Christmas is not what you celebrate....well, a very Happy Day for you, whatever it is you are doing.  Have fun.  See you in the New Year.... Toodl

Quick Tip - how to straighten stickpins and Jewellery wire

Quick Tip - how to straighten stickpins and Jewellery wire Hi folks.  Just a quick wee video tip today.  When I make my stickpins, I usually buy them in bulk from China on Ebay.  Problem with this is, you always end up with bent, wonky stickpins that you need to straighten.  Also, when you use jewellery wire, we have to muck about with the wire and jewellery pliers in an attempt to straighten something that has been wrapped tightly in a can see my dilemma.   Well, here is a quick tip which won't result in you cutting the hands off yourself, whilst struggling to straighten the wonky little blighters! I hope to be back soon with a few Tim Holtz Embellishment Kits for sale.  They'll be a mixed selection of Tim Holtz goodies.  So instead of having 18 hanger paper clips when all you need is 2, or 1 set of box corners instead of paying for 3 sets, I have put together various sized kits to cater all budgets.  Also....a Miss Congeniality Giveaway will be announced

Lions and Tigers and Bears....Oh My! Dorothy Gale Halloween Outfit

Lions and Tigers and Bears....Oh My!  Dorothy Gale Halloween Outfit Hello my Pretties (Get it??  "My Pretty".....from the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz??).  Long time no see.  I'm such a disaster pants!  Really and truly.  I haven't made anything this year!  Except of course the million and one things I made for my Brother's Wedding....which I have still to show you!  But on the bright side, I got published in a Wedding  Magazine....Yippee!!!!!  Well, my Brother and his lovely new Wife were in the magazine but my blog got a mention as I made everything for their big day.  So I'm very chuffed to see my wee blog in glossy print.  I promise I will have photo's of some of the things I made, but because I had so much to make, I forgot to take photos of a lot of the things I made.  So I'm in the process of trying to gather photos from friends and family who wisely did take photos!  I'm such a numpty!  You'd never believe I was a Blogger!
