I know tags are all the go around this time of year and I suppose a little of Tim Holtz has rubbed off on me as of late, what can I say he is addictive! Although I don't own a lot of his products it hasn't stopped me experiementing with a few of his techniques.
With this tag I just sprayed an ordinary old luggage tag with Tattered Angels "Peppermint Stick", inked around the edges with the old vintage photo ink pad and dropped a bit of water here and there. Now Holly. Didn't think I had much in that line but then I remembered an old little sizzix die cut I had tucked away in the draw somewhere that would be ideal, thanks for reminding me Sarah! I didn't have the right colored ribbon so I sprayed that too. Can you see the cool little rusty star at the top? Cool hey! The rest is history. Just ask if you need any other info.

I've been hinting for quite awhile now about the possiblity of owning a bike. After-all we do live on a lake which boasts one of the best bike tracks on the coast. Lord knows I really need a reason to exercise now my darling dog has gone. So when Kev asked me to meet him at the local bike shop to check out a bike I knew, just knew there really is a Santa Claus! Meet IVY, isn't she gorgeous! I finally got to go for a ride today as the rain has been pelting down all week and guess what happened? No I didn't fall off. About a hour from home, FLAT TYRE! sigh. Just a small set back, I'll be back biking before ya know it.

Our small group of artists have been swapping ATC's for a little while now but sad to say, we are getting a little bogged down and would like some inspiration. The theme for the swap is A Splash of Turquoise and the usual rules apply. Just do 9 of the same and add them to a folder and send to me. If you would like to participate just let me know and I will send you my address. I think a month to do them is pretty feasible. To those girls whose have already given me their ATC's don't despair! I'm sure we'll get some interesting submissions (please don't let me down blog friends!) LOL!

We all need a little outside inspiration don't we? A couple of weeks ago I went over to Pages2Scrap my local (aren't I lucky) papercraft store and did a workshop with the amazing Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door. Here is the finished product:
The canvas measures 20cm x 20cm or 8 x 8 inches and the individual tile measure 5 x 5cm or 2 x 2 inches. Each tile was treated with a different technique using Viva Decor texture mediums called Terra, Ferro and Croco and Viva Decor Precious Metal Colours. Here is a close up:
I really enjoyed this workshop and it certainly helped getting the creative juices flowing. Thanks Rachel!

Well I know its been a while. I took a short break ok? My little business (Gourmet@Home) has been keeping me a little busy not to mention a little lack lustre in the creative department. As some of you may or may not know I have started a "personal chef" business and I'm starting to get a few jobs. Not many but enough to keep me off the streets. I love it! So far I have done a lunch party for Eric who turned 90. A surprise party for 15 people with a 3 course menu, a staff incentive lunch for 15 people and a VIP day serving Hot Chocolate and Churros. Quite diverse hey? So if you hate cooking but love entertaining I'm the person for you. I'm on facebook so if you'd like to see some photos please visit. Meanwhile here's some little ones.
