Welcome to my new blog! As some of you may know, I have been out of the scrapbooking loop for some time. This was because at first I was super busy with kids, life, university etc, but after a while I felt detached and lost from the scrapping community.

I've set up this blog because during this time I have had other crafty ventures. I have been teaching myself different mixed media techniques, drawing and painting. I didn't feel the desire to share this on my typepad blog because I felt that the small amount of followers expected to see scrapbooking.

So as a result of some encouraging and cajoling by some gorgeous friends... Whalla! Here she is. I would like to state a disclaimer: This does not mean that this blog will not contain scrapbooking. Let it be known as "the all things made by hand" blog.

So... without further ado, here are a few glimpses of what I was working on this weekend in a house of 10 other gorgeous ladies (that deserves a post of it's own ;)

These two girls are painted in my art journal and the following is on a cover of an old book...

Thanks for visiting!
