Not much crafting here . . . .

but look what arrived in the post all the way from america!!!!! They are from my toadstool swap partner Jessica @ i commented on them on her blog which is full of lovely papercrafting and well worth a look at. ThAnKs JeSsIcA xxxxxx

school holidays are here again so i'm very busy with kids and not a lot of crafting going on but come september i'll have loads more time and i'm determined to make more "stuff" and set up an etsy shop selling my surplus buttons - i really hate to admit it but i have too many!

my latest russian dolls this is the first time i've strayed from the traditional design and colours but she has the sweetest face/s ~I'm thinking of selling some of my suplus russian dolls too as i have about 20 sets now ~ i must stay away from eBay!

it was my cousin's birthday (17) yesterday so this is the card i made her - it's a painting by Mark Ryden, who is my favourite artist. We all went to the cinema to watch "The Dark Knight" it was really really good - couldn't really fault it and would recommend it - my daughter came to and it was the first time she'd been to an adult film {she is 13} she was worried she'd not like it as she's not really into comic book heroes {shocking} but she liked it too! We had to lie to our son as he LOVES batman and would've howled the house dowwn if he'd known where we were going!!!

hand enamelled buttons - very funky

i've joined a new blog called button floozies which is well worth a look at if you are a button addict like me!

i will try and put a link on the side bar later .
