Hi Everyone – what a week here! Coldest weather in decades – my kids got to play in snow and I am showering this evening in case my pipes are frozen again in the morning and I have to wash in a basin again!
Snow Pictures – because it’s such a novelty!
No – this is not my house! It’s our Cobb Cottage and it’s where the men who built our homestead lived in the 1860’s.
I cannot imagine what it would have been like to spend a winter living here.
Before all my North American friends fall off their chairs laughing at this pathetic amount of snow – this is BIG NEWS where we are!!
Miss Nelly Flowers and Sparklets
Last week I wanted to make a bunch of flowers for someone special who is due to have an operation – so I thought it would be a perfect excuse to try out the new Miss Nelly collection from Kaisercraft and some of their really cool new giant sparkly sticky things called Sparklets.
I have cut the flowers using my Cuttlebug and Tim Holtz die. The whole bunch took around 45 minutes to make and they look wonderful. Hopefully they will cheer the recipient up – I love the idea of giving flowers that last forever! The Sparklets look great in the centre of the flowers, and as they come in 12 colours you can find some to match any paper collection.
I was looking at the Sparklets on-line and I realized that it’s quite hard to see what they look like from the stock images on the website – so here is a better “real” picture. They really are fun and VERY sparkly and are 15mm and 8mm in diameter.
I have heaps of project to post using the other August Kaisercraft Collection Hunt and Gather – just in time for NZ Fathers Day in early September.
