Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Wow, I'm certainly on a winning streak....2 Awards and my valentine card won last week's challenge over on Stamptacular Sunday. Some lovely stamps are winging their way over the Atlantic...I'm very excited.

I was also very chuffed that the lovely Christine, kindly sent me this award.

As with all awards this it has conditions they are, I have to tell you 10 things that give me pleasure.

Where to start...sharing life with my husband.....my daughter....and her two beautiful girls...my Cupboard and sharing crafting with cyberland....working in my craft room discovering new ways to use the Bug....visiting and chatting to my crafting friends...craft shopping...red wine....eating out.....cream cakes....holidays....bowling.....think that's 10...could go on and on...life is sweet!

Passing this on to 10 crafters is more difficult and may take me some time...please bear with me.

Thanks again Christine, I appreciate your thoughts and support of the Cupboard.

Shree has also sent me an award.

Again Shree I want to say many thanks for your kind thoughts and for your support. I have been privileged with being nominated with this Kreativ Blogger award previously, but still feel very honoured by you thinking of me and that my blog is a source of inspiration.

So a big thank you to Christine, Shree and SCC for making me feel special and thought of. It's true to say I have made a lot of lovely friends through crafting. Why not pop over to their blogs and check out what's they are making today.

I had a great day out yesterday with my friends at the Stitch and Craft Show - the sun shone all day - I spent a few pennies on some lovely crafting goodies - good job I cleared out the old to make way for the new. And, then over night it snowed, but thankfully the sun is back - the sky is blue - and the snow is melting but the paths and roads are treacherous. It's a crafting day for me! (well that's a surprise!!!).

Have a good Sunday, back tomorrow with a tutorial on my winning card.

Congratulations on your winnings :) You certainly have earned them! I had to chuckle with I saw you use the word "chuffed". My mom is in England (native), but I never heard that word until she went back after 20 years in the States. I had to ask her what it meant, and now that I know, I can appreciate hearing it from someone else. :)
