lots of things..


This is my entry for this weeks Small world of inchies and twinchies. Collage images and stamps are by Inka

PaperArtsy card

I had a strange urge to play with decorative scissors!

Easy Peasy gift tags

stamps by Inka, gold bit is a "zoomz", these are really the easiest tags in the world. Bit of double sided tape of the little folded bit and you are sorted.

last minute christmas presents

we saw this idea in the sunday times magazine. paint terracotta plant pots with blackboard paint (after priming), and plant with herbs, and write on them with chalk.
The black board paint is quite expensive but you can make loads with it


  1. coo you have been busy. love the busyness on the twinchie against the clean white background of the card. also the way you've echoed the fancy scissors along the side of the image you used in the second card.

  2. I am loving all of your projects! I especially love the tags and the chalkboard paint idea. I've always wanted to try making something with chalkboard paint, but haven't ever done it. :o)

  3. Wow, how busy you've been! Love those "quick" gift labels, they are perfect!

    I haven't used decorative scissors in quite some time. Maybe I should make that a challenge theme at the skinnies blog. lol Hmmmm....

  10. Hi Joanne.
    I hope you had a Merry Christmas.
    I love the idea of the herb pots but I have a quick question on them.
    Did you prime them with anything prior to painting them with the Blackboard paint?
    Can you let me know when you have a few minutes? I would appreciate it for sure!
    Have a great New Year. Stay safe and be happy!
