Stained Glass and Glitter - what a combo!

Hi Peeps!

What a lovely start to this week we have had - blue skies,sunshine and Dark Mofo!
What's not to like, especially after an earlier cold break with snow!

Here is a view from the top of the mountain of Hobart.....

My bay is the one on the right hand side edge - you can see some fuel containers on this side of the river - we are on the other side and see them too!

Happy Birthday Mrs Queen.

It has been a wee bit cold here lately and some snow fell on the mountains

Thinking warmer thoughts, apparently this weekend is the official birthday - as apposed to the actual birthday - of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. As such, we in Tasmania are enjoying a long-weekend. Apparently we are not a Republic yet; who knew!  I will take a day off (well, it would be better if I was at work and got a day off; when every day is a day off, it doesn't feel the same) anytime.

Maybe some day soon this long weekend can be to celebrate us becoming a Republic! Not that I have anything against the Queen of Britain -she is a trojan, that is for sure. But she is not my Queen. It is all very strange........

Anyway, Happy Birthday Queenie......

Hope the Trooping of the Colours went well. 

Today is also the beginning of the second week of our latest challenge

June Challenge #90: Stained Glass using Dies TWIST Use some Glitter

Do you ever have those periods when you think you have a lot of time to complete something and then discover that other things come between you and completion? Yep, me too.

Hello Peeps - hope that your crafting time is productive and often. We have hit winter in the southern climes and the first day was a beautiful blue sky day and quite warm - go figure. This was preceeded by a week of cold weather and snow on the mountains. Today is coldish and RAINING - isn't that good! Not heavy, just a good drizzle. Great for the garden. If you are in the South - keep warm.

If you are in the Northern half of this globe - welcome to Summer and heatwaves! Keep cool and dry.

On with Challenge #90
Stained Glass Techniques using Dies

If you go to Jennifer McGuire : she has a few ideas that you can adjust for dies rather than stamps

Lets see how you go making something using a die and the stained glass idea - 
the TWIST to use glitter is up to you but it certainly makes a great look!

Hello Peeps,
Happy Mother's Day!

Hope all you Mums and Moms and Mothers had a lovely time over the past weekend!

I am the Mum of a Fur Baby - he nibbled my feet at 4.30 am in the morning, does that count as saying Happy Mother's day? He weighs 5 kilo's and I was trying to move him off my feet at the time!


Weasley - he is 19 month's old and a character!

I am also a step-Mum and I got a lovely gift and card, plus the joy of watching my eldest grandddaughter play soccer today - while all the Mum's drank champagne and ate lovely nibbles in the sun while watching the game!

Well,  guess who won the random draw?

May Challenge#89: To Have and to Hold - TWIST: Art Deco style!

Hello Peeps! 

Happy May
Autumnal mornings...

This is often the month of engagements and marriages and Spring
 in the Northern Hemisphere!

For us in the Southern half, not so much......

However, there are always folks getting Engaged, Married 
or Celebrating a Wedding Anniversary!

So, the Challenge is 

"To Have and To Hold"

What better way to do that than with some glamour. 

So the TWIST this month is 
To use some ART DECO Glamour!

Remember, you don't have to do the TWIST to enter
BUT ..... what is a challenge without a CHALLENGE!

What is Art Deco all about?
It is about STYLE!

It started about the 1920's and finished in the 40's. Based around geometric designs and patterns it was incorporated into buildings,manufacturing, clothing, furnishings and furniture and jewellery. It also was a big part of Art, as well as Crafts.

It was build through Art Nouveau and it's sinuous curves, but was more fixated on smooth lines, geometric shapes, streamlined forms and bright, sometimes garish colours. It also incorporated lots of costly items such as gold and silver and jewels but after the depression of the 30's it began to use cheaper, newer materials like plastic and chrome.

There are lots of images to be seen in Google Images and lots of things on Pinterest as well, but don't just look for cards - look for items and boxes and materials and clothing......you will get so much inspiration!

HERE is a good place to start for ideas!

So - you can go to town in the TWIST!
