Happy 2015!!

Just putting my feather duster away after brushing off the cobwebs on my blog.  It's been a while since I visited here with anything to share, but I have found my way back, cleaned up the blog a little, and I have great news to share which will see me visiting my blog much more regularly in 2015. Yesterday I received some very exciting news.  Ru at My SVG Hut posted on Facebook that she was looking for a couple of people to join her Creative Team.  I only discovered My SVG Hut just a couple of weeks ago, but am already besotted with her files, so I put my application in, and was delighted when she congratulated me and offered me a place!  Ru's cutting files are so simple to assemble and look stunningly effective once completed.  This is one of the many luminaire box cards that were introduced to the shop before Christmas.  I made a couple of these for friends and myself and they were well received.
Doesn't it just conjure up a picture of serenity?  As you can see from this picture, there is a space at the top of the box which houses 5 holes.  This is so that you can drop in a battery operated tealight and direct the light wherever you want it to shine on your scene.
After the success of my Luminaire's, I was really keen to try out another of Ru's files, so I went ahead and bought Secret Garden within about an hour of her releasing it in the store.  I really love this one

I was instantly drawn to this one by it's air of mystery.  Ru's own photo had a ghostly ethereal look about it that made it look so exciting, and it reminded me of a picture I used to look at in a book I had as a child, that always made me wish that I could open those gates and walk around and explore it's overgrown and unkempt gardens without being seen by whoever it was that lived in that ramshackled old house behind it.
This picture tells it better!

Well, much as I would love to sit here rambling on and on, I have to go and get myself ready to share a New Years Eve coffee with friends, and hopefully get back in time to go for New Years Eve lunch with other friends.  A family meeting was called earlier this week to discuss NYE celebrations and the vote was overwhelming.  Tonight we are going to order a big Chinese buffet, and sit around the table, me and my gorgeous boys, and we will toast the New Year in together, just the family, just the way we like it!

I would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has popped in here and taken the time to leave feedback.  It is so greatly appreciated, and it not only keeps me motivated, but it shows the people who's creativity I am showcasing how much loved their products are, so please go and see for yourself what other goodies are on offer after you've been here.



  1. Is there any chance you could do a tutorial on these Anne... I think they are wonderful
