...and she's back!

Its been months since my last posting - I've been a little overwhelmed by work, school holidays, life & more work and its definitely taking its toll.  Especially on this poor neglected blog!

I've a few links to how-to's, freebies & generally 'look at this' things to share with you today.

Also - you may have noticed 'cos of a missing blinkie - that I'm no longer on the CT for the Sweet Shoppe.  I decided to step down for many reasons, including work volume & general 'comfort' in my position there.  Its a store full of talent & gorgeous goodies, but I just didn't feel like a good fit anymore so it was definitely the right time to go.

I'm delighted to say I'm still having the honour & pleasure to work with SuzyQ Scraps, Heather Roselli, Ju Kneipp & the team at DigiScrap Addicts, plus every now & again I have the joy to play with Kate Hadfield's lovely doodles - in fact I would recommend that you check out her store at The LilyPad on Friday as you'll find some spookaliciously hybrid goodies (if I do say so myself!) :) 

What finally prompted me to post today was that I've found a fab new font source, and wanted to make sure you knew about it too!  A very talented designer called Kimberly Geswein shares all the fonts she makes on her blog.  Her fonts are for personal use, though CU can be purchased.

Here are a few I simply had to have!

You can never have too many fonts...

If you've never made your own cupcake wraps, then if you pop over to Heather Roselli's blog here you can grab the wrappers & toppers you can see in the photo above for free!  They were made using Heather's DIY Printable templates & Sugar High Night kit.
How about something to decorate your room for Halloween?  Then to grab this fun freebie printable you should check out SuzyQ Scrap's blog here.  I used her collab kit 'In the Graveyard' to make this 'lil number.

The blog posts containing the freebies contain how-to's too :)

Finally - please tell me you've discovered Pintrest???  This is the site you can use as your online notice board for all those recipes, ideas, colour schemes, photos & so much more that you hope to one day try out... without cluttering up your own hard drive or wasting ink by printing!  Its such an amazing Aladdin's Cave of ideas - you MUST investigate it if you haven't so far.  But I warn you is rather addictive!  My boards are here if that helps you get started & the general idea :)

Before I go, I must give you the details about the hybrid craft above - which was made using the Featured Product in The Enabler (DSA's magazine) this October: it was made using Journey of the Heart by Elise’s Pieces & KimB Designs.  It was a sincere pleasure using this kit - totally gorgeous!
