I'm in a really crafty mood at the moment,
 just wonder how long it will last lol. 
I would just like to say a big thank you to all the lovely comments which have been left …….

My passion for crafting really stems from an obsession with paper……..
 love how something so simple can be artistically tweaked to create a very unique and individualized gifts for others,
 which can hold such precious words that may be kept for years to come. 

Always enjoy experimenting 
with different designs, prints, and styles,
 my work reflects the various facets of the colors and the application at random

Now it is time to resume our work!!!!!!

Warning - Long Post, grab a cold coffee, sit back and chill - See more at:
