the final curtain!

here is sketch 60, my final sketch for twisted sketches. this twist for this was 'joy' and as you can imagine, all sorts of things sprung to mind - christmas, birthdays, our wedding. But when i saw how determined our cat was to get cheese, and how happy he was after, that was my subject.
so i give you 'The Cheese Heist'.

dolly face ups.

(photo courtesy of

the wonderful ericaduh is offering FREE face ups at her dolly spa!
I am currently number 20 and lovely Mab is going to America for some prettyfying.
We both can't wait.

i scrapped!

yay me :) i picked up my scrap'a'gogo kit from the post office today and my cherry photo was perfect. im sorry it isnt very clear but im having to scan LOs in, which doesnt work well if there's any extra dimension. i also think my old sewing machine has properly died now.
Extra tags from shabby chic crafts.

i love this time of year, as this is when all the scrapbooking companies start showing sneaks of their new lines. american crafts have another 'dear lizzy' line and this one looks a winner...look at those 3d flowers!!

on a side note, i have decided to sell one of my dolls. she doesnt get the love anymore, and ive been guiltily eyeing up an Frankie, my BWT, has to go.

if you think you can offer her a home, shes on plastic paradise.

right now..

Last night I had to go to a wedding reception by myself as marcus had managed to give himself some form of heatstroke. I didnt mind going on my own as im a big girl, but it would have been nice him being there. As the evening wore on, i found myself feeling more at a loss, fidgeting with my car keys, restless, tearful. very strange. i went home 3 hours later and all those feelings went as soon as i saw marcus. I have never considered myself the type of person who 'needs' another; apparently i am.

On another note, my time with the Twisted Sketches team will be coming to an end at the end of July. I will miss it.

high school crush
