Burble along with me in my dream world

To live is to craft and to craft is to live-plus more homely bar room philosophy from a former barmaid and library assistant

Mojo is in intensive care due to serious neglect

What could I expect? No serious cardmaking for four months and it has practically shrivelled away -the little pet. Didn't stop buying though-oh no. Just squirrelled it all away until peace returned chez nous. Multitasking is the first casualty when fibromyalgia takes up residence and so I just had to focus on badgering workmen until jobs got to a more manageable level. Still got plenty to do to get properly sorted but it'll keep a bit.
Now then, back to the ole' MOJO.
My own theory is that when all else fails you can still make toppers even if they don't make themselves into cards so I have made a few with some lovely SU punches and stuff from the stash including lots of Craftwork Cards papers.
Meant to put down a ruler to get an idea of size-not inchies but quite small.

1 Bases SU punches mainly with SU card and papermania red hot pinks with some chalking
2 Stamp SU- ink pink passion
3 Flowers various flower punches-card candy-liquid pearls-Craftwork Cards paper blox and paper strips plus some nifty flowers made with a hole punch

Toppers inspired by Michelle Powell's little book "Tags and Toppers" using mainly Craftwork Cards products and SU pink passion ink plus an SU stamp popped in there.

That's not all folks but I'll keep a bit back.
Have been a bit punch drunk as you can probably guess and I'm absorbed in teeny tiny world for now.
Have ordered some more books from Amazon too on Iris folding. One is by Michelle Powell and looks very different. Got to use up some of that paper somehow .
Have never made an Iris folded card in my life but the Craftwork Cards strips I've got look just the thing as they are colour themed.
Craftroom is next on my makeover list but it will have to wait.
