Hello people,

Hope you had a great week!

I’ve had yet another busy week and I also focused a bit on organizing and decluttering my mind because my to-do list is increasing exponentially!! Feeling overwhelmed kind of works against you so it was time to stop, calm down, move back, and write down everything! How do you tackle feeling overwhelmed? I have stumbled across a blog which suggests a simple and effective way how to organize your week and plan around your different life areas. If you’re feeling slightly out of control and somewhat lacking behind just have courage and go through these steps which will slowly get you back on track πŸ™‚ I thank the author for sharing this guide πŸ™‚

bookmark_frontThis week I managed to fit in a few minutes to make a bookmark. Honestly, I always run out of bookmarks . . . I have so many types, my favourite being a metal angel . . . which has designs like a stencil . . .it is attached to a white chord. . . super cute πŸ™‚ I decided to make a corner bookmark this time. Just love these! You can dress them up however you like and they make cute handmade gifts for a teacher, a librarian, a bookworm friend πŸ™‚ there are many templates for these bookmarks. I followed a simple one which you can find here.

bookmark1I used part of my digistamp ‘Hang in There‘, used small wooden pegs, a ribbon, a printed quote and embossed the bottom part for some texture! It is important to keep your decorations as flat as possible so that your book can close properly. It only took me a few minutes to make so do try it out πŸ™‚

Wishing you all a lovely weekend πŸ™‚

Take care and hugs,

Roaring Twenties

Heya πŸ™‚

How are you? Hope you’re all well and having a nice weekend! Here we had terrible weather, soooo windy, rainy, and still quite cold. But today it is seems to be more stable with some occasional sunny moments! So that’s not too bad!

Flapper Girl Penny Blossom CardThis week I’m sharing with you a new drawing I made for a friend of mine who will get married soon. We had her hen night and it was such a wonderful evening πŸ™‚ Sooo enjoyable πŸ™‚ ‘Roaring Twenties’ was the theme!! Such a lovely way to spend a girl’s night out together wearing our flapper dresses, boas, pearls and bling! Don’t you think it was such a lovely fashion style? I think it really flattered women! It is nice to feel sophisticated and elegant . . . simply enjoying being a girl πŸ™‚

You can find my drawing in my shop and this is the card I made. I’m also sharing a pic from the day πŸ™‚ feathers it is! hihi πŸ™‚

Hope you’re well πŸ™‚ The weekend is almost here! Hurray!! I look forward to rest a bit as I’ve had quite a busy week.

Pink it is - Card - Penny BlossomToday I want to share with you a card I’ve made for a friend of mine who has just had her second baby. . . sweet Julia πŸ™‚ The character I designed represents a happy, well-groomed mummy who’s gone out for a nice stroll with her pram πŸ™‚ Blissful moments with a newborn πŸ™‚ You can find the digi in my shop. I really enjoyed working on this card πŸ™‚ It has been quite some time since I had time to indulge in some card making so it was nice to play around with some items I have in my stash! Don’t you just love going through your supplies and just let them inspire you??

Take care and I wish you’ll have lots of inspiration to create something beautiful and which makes you happy πŸ™‚
