picture gallery

we have nearly painted the whole downstairs of our house and it is mainly...white. the reason for this is so that i can add colour with pictures and trinkets and remove them when we are ready to sell one day rather than painting walls in colours potential buyers may not approve of. 

however, i have been a bit adverse to actually hanging anything - i am not sure why - i think it may be due to the fact that all the walls are white and any nail and hammer mistakes will be clearly visible - or just because i was just too lazy to be bothered. 
anyhow, here is my first attempts at picture hanging / wall decorating and nothing terrible happened! - woo hoo! what do you think?

my shandy

i thought i would share this picture of my beloved dog daughter - Shandy. i adopted her from a friend when she was 6 months old - they had decided that a dog was not for them and asked if we would have her. she has been making me very happy ever since.
she is loving, loyal,cute,cuddly and full of fun. However she can be very rude to other dogs, and can have a bit of an attitude if myself and my husband don't come home till late - but she soon comes around and is very forgiving. She loves sitting at the table and looking at herself in the mirror too!


p.s Shandy does not help me with orders atall - she would love to but i am very strict about her having access to my studio and any orders! just in case you were wondering :)

for you

this is for you.
it's a collage i made with bits of old book pages and left over paper bits. then i added a few effects via picasa. i have called it 'when will you learn to live?' i don't know why - it just popped into my head!
print it off and put it on your wall - it will make me very happy if you do :)
i am still busy designing a new range of wedding invitations and i am pretty much very exited about them to be honest.
it will be a while until i can share them with you but please bear with me - i want them to be perfect and once they are i will get the website back up and running with the new branding and lovely photos - it will be grand!

jewellery display ideas

i don't wear jewellery nearly as much as i should therefore i haven't got a huge collection however if i did i would want to have it all on display. 
don't you love some of these ideas? very clever. i love the picture hooks as hangers and the picture frame gallery at the top.
