News to share and a page

Hello bloggers

I have one big news to share with you: I got a job. It is a full time with bit longer commuting, but hey I cannot always complain. I am happy and looking forward to buy some new stash soon. I hope I will have time to use it sometimes, hehe.

Now for all those very inspiring blogs that I follow I have to admit I was not visiting much recently, firstly I was too busy with interviews preparation then I started working with very short notice but I will get there and catch up with your blogs and get back to crafting too.

I was just going through my photos and found nice page that I never posted anywhere:

I used old Basic Grey papers, all flowers is hand made by me, butterflies are sizzix dies, the fabric flower uses same fabric used in dress, the only problem is that it looks more blue on the photo. The page is based on one Once Upon A Sketch sketch, good sketches are not only for challenges but for making pages afterwards. The photo is of my daughter on feis, and close up of my flower.

I just spotted one more page, made by same paper collection, I kind of clearing them up:

Me and OH on our honeymoon. I am not sure what I had in mind about this page, was probably considered as unfinished. I will think of that.

Have a nice day

Liebster Blog Award

Few days ago a friend of mine Donka treated me with a blog award 'Liebster blog'.

 The idea of this one is promote small blogs, less then 200 follower and pass it to 5 other small blogs.
The rules are:
  1. link the award back to person who gave it to you
  2. Pass in to 5 small blogers
  3. leave comments on their blogs
  4. Liebster in German means dearest  
I must admit, it was not easy task for me to make this selection, many whom I would chose probably wouldn't bother, but anyway I made my list:

  1. Triona 
  2. Sam
  3. Maria
  4. Fiona
  5. Suzie
This is all for now. hope I will post again soon.

Crafting Ireland

Hello all my dear readers. I am sorry for being absent from my blog for so long.  No I did not hibernate, I had to activate myself in a job hunt and was preparing few job interviews. In order to do that properly I put away all my stash and kept away from crafting as much as possible. I did make few birthday cards and few tags, will share these with you in some other post. Unfortunately, I still don't have a good news to share with you in respect to my job hunt.

However I have one fantastic news to share with you, not one but two of my pages have been published in Issue 8 Crafting Ireland, see page 25. The Crafting Ireland is a free on-line paper crafting magazine packed with ideas, tips and techniques. I would recommend everybody to check it out:

Thank you Timi and Nicole for accepting my pages.

Few days ago I received a blog award from my dear friend Donka, will talk more about that in my next post. 

Have a lovely day
