Welcome, and thanks for visiting.
It's been very quiet here for a long time, sorry! That will hopefully change now though!
We no longer live on our wonderful little farm and we miss all our animals, trees and garden, but Life brought us new challenges and adventures in 2015, and we are currently renting a little cottage in beautiful Mangawhai, a seaside village 90 minutes North of Auckland, for the 2016 summer. I have moved on from fairy gardens as I no longer have access to the natural materials needed to make them. I have to keep my creative juices flowing, hoever, so am sewing a lot again, as you will see . . .😊
If you are a miniature or fairy garden enthusiast, like I am, please visit my Facebook page, Away With The Fairies, for ideas and inspiration.

Pretty in Pink (and black)

As the Guest Designer for May over on the wonderful Really Reasonable Ribbon blog, I got to play with the RRR May Ribbon Club assortment - devine!

I made a big square card, using ribbon tags, inchies and 1" circles punched from different designer papers, embossed card and stamped card, and the lovely "Friendship" word from Stampin' Up.  It's the kind of card that would look so nice framed in a shadow box frame, so  that's what I did!  (I know, my photography skills are sorely lacking, but just ignore the shadow on the side.)

Please visit my blog again later today when the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings Blog Hop will be on the go, and you'll be sent "ribbon rambling" through some wonderfully inspirational blogs.   You'll be glad you did.
