Hi

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!

WOYWW Week 52 - Happy 1st Anniversary!

A few weeks ago I had this what I thought was a brill idea - remember these freebie jars.

I thought I decorate one of them, but after a number of hours I had to admit  it was not working tooooooo well! Nothing seemed to stick to my acetate jar but me....but I could'nt be beaten and fail to submit this week since it's such a momentous occasion to be celebrating your first anniversary.....so......presevering.....in honour of Julia's brilliant idea and her unfailing support of all the WOYWWers.....here my WOYWWAC


Congratulations and my thanks Julia for bringing about WOYWW - you've made craft rooms fun and liberating and Wednesday has become a real friendly day. Now I have to get the glue and dye off my fingers...any suggestions?

Unfortunately I will not be around today as I have a family funeral, but hope to catch you tomorrow.

Have fun and look forward to seeing your creations.

Oh Ikki-this is amazing a paperweight-what a fabulous and truly magical thing. You must tellus how you did it. It is so lovely. Honestly WOYWW is better than buying a magazine-so much variation and lovely projects to share. Love BettyXXX

Love your WOYWWAC entry! There is so much detail here, I can tell you've spent a lot of time making this tribute to Julia. I love your sentiment on what this day is all about.

Sorry to hear you have a funeral today. I'll be taking two days, so there will still be plenty of us doing this tomorrow, too.
