Last chance for an online class…

The Artsy Grunge class at the Scrapbook Studio (this Friday night) is going to be heaps of fun, and it’ll be the last chance you get to do an online class with me. I’ve resigned from my design team position and will be leaving at the end of September.

I’ve really enjoyed being part of the team at the Scrapbook Studio, but I’m looking to focus my commitment more onto my digital site Eidou, as well as hopefully becoming part of a magazine/manufacturers design team. Thank you to everyone that’s supported me in my journey so far… I hope you all stay with me as I take the next steps towards my ultimate goal of a book and own range of products!

Eidou is now up and running, we’re still a couple of designers short (get well guys!!) and have plenty of room for other designers who are looking to go digital and sell their products online. I want Eidou to be a place where more inexperienced designers can get a footing an industry already dominated by ‘names’. So if you’re thinking about it and have some designs you’d like to sell through Eidou, drop me a line and let’s talk! 🙂

I’m staying at my parents place tonight with Joshie, after 2 nights on the lounge floor with a sick wee boy I’m opting for some comfort and staying in Joshie’s room with him there instead (he’s got a trundle bed – muuuuch more comfortable than a hard wooden floor!!). He was vomiting last night but it seems to be back to just being a cold today so fingers crossed for a better night tonight. Poor wee guy, was just a bit sniffley yesterday so I sent him to kindy as normal, and we got a phone call after lunch to say he’d started vomiting in his sleep so could we come and pick him up early please… I think he’s on the mend now… couple of days at home with us and kept warm should do the trick. It’s been one illness after another this winter – roll on summer!!!

Still stripping…

Wallpaper that is. Sorry to get you all excited. Or scared… LOL

Joshie spent the night at Nanna & Grandad’s house (yay!) so not only did we get a good night’s sleep we also managed to start (and I say ‘start’) stripping the wallpaper in the lounge. It’s a small room to do and the paper is coming off easier than in Joshie’s room, but it’s still not easy! Just going to keep plodding with that one…

Here’s a layout I did with the kit from Scrapbook Studio this month, I used papers from Three Bugs in a Rug, Daisy D’s and some Bazzill cardstock. Also added to the mix was a Crafters Template mini butterfly, some paint, and some Three Bugs rubons. The chipboard at the back is the surround from the houses I made yesterday…

ta ta for now!

Awww… soooo cute ya wanna live in ’em!

We got some extra special goodies in our kit this month from the Scrapbook Studio – these gorgeous wee houses made of chipboard! They’re in the store and ready for you to decorate with whatever you like. I wanted mine to look a bit like ‘spirit houses’, so went for the heritage look with them. They could so easily be made into birdhouses too though (didn’t have any dowel or I would’ve done it! LOL)…

Anyway, here’s what I came up with… (I got a whole village to do, not just one house – yay!)

We’ve got lots more goodies coming up for you this month too, so keep an eye out! And don’t forget my online ARTSY GRUNGE class coming up next Friday – I reaaaalllly liked doing this one and it’s going to be a heap of fun on the night… can hear the complaints about getting messy already… hehehe

cya!!

Check it out!

My new website that is! Cruise over to www.eidou.com and check out what I’ve been busy with… it’s up and ready but I’m waiting on a couple more designers to upload their work – in the meantime though there’s a heap of cool freebies on offer!

And just for you, I found this:

Oh, and this one…

hehehehe

Be afraid…

be very afraid…

I’ve always had a bit of an interest in the paranormal – since I was able to read I was more into reading about ghosties than nice little mystery stories or such. I don’t know why, it just fascinates me – and yep, I do believe in ghosts (not this type though! LOL)… I just believe there is more to life than ‘this’ and that we’re more than just a body… I’m hoping my spirit is skinny… hehehehe

Just my weird sense of humour, I thought this was hilarious and it’s not intended to offend or upset anyone with particularly sensitive sensibilities…

🙂

ATC’s…

This was round 2 of the Scrapbook Studio’s ATC swap – the theme was hearts this time around I had a ball playing with paints and inks and anything else I could think to throw at them!

🙂

the list is out…

The list of Memory Makers Masters that is… and nope, I’m not on it (as expected!!)… but I was kinda still hoping…

Congrats to Lesley Cooper from NZ who made the runners up though!!

Soooo I can now share my layouts, they’re not winners but I love them anyway!
