Free Inspirational Desktop Background

It is the last day of June, and also the last day of the first half of 2010. I have had the January desktop image on my computer background for 6 months, so today I took some time and created a new one! You are welcome to download the desktop image and right click to […]

Little Scraps of Magic…

Tonight I’ve been at Craft Social, but before bed I just wanted to show you what I got in the mail today. You know sometimes days and weeks go by and there is nothing fun in the mail, nothing at all, and then all of a sudden – mail bliss! Not one, not two but […]

Grid of Pretty Papers

Continuing with grids, this time more of a Paper Sampler, as suggested for the June crusade.

Recently I have “swiped through” and […]

Fun finds from my inbox

Today it has been raining all day, so a great day for sorting stuff. I have been rummaging around everywhere today, and the dust is thick in the air… Away away with old DVD:s that no one will watch again, VHS tapes, unmarked CD:s, some of my own children’s books from the attic (but saving […]
