Adorkable… is this really a word?

Adorkable, yes you really did read this right, it really is a word! I had to google it when I saw it on one of the stunning On Trend chipboard pieces from MME. And to prove it, the dictionary definition is… ‘a person or object who is adorable and also a dork who is doing something that […]


Slipping into Spring with Simple Stories and others… xox

Hello little magpies, How are you all? Good I hope. Today’s post has a spring like feel, using lots of different products. I use Simple Stories ‘I Am’ collection, We Are Memory Keepers ‘Love Notes’  and a bit of Maggie Holmes ‘Open Book’  too.  I have been very busy this month – we had a HLM retreat […]

Me and my shadow

Hello ladies! It’s Tracie here with you again. Have you ever rediscovered a product that you’d forgotten about? That happened to me recently with the wonderful Hero Arts shadow inks. Many moons ago in my card-making days I used to use them a lot, then they just seemed to disappear from the market, or maybe […]


How you doodling?

Hello lovely ladies, it’s Tracie here with you again, and this month I have reverted back to my old favourite technique of doodling!!
