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

Hi all, hope you are all well and enjoying this week of summer!  I have been missing for the last two weeks due to life's chores getting in the way of my crafting, but I'm back with a shot of my desk.....

This is how I left my desk last night.  I have just taken this photo and when I saw it I had to smile because they say a photo never lies AND this  doesn't because what's there echos the state of my mind!  I had a good day yesterday - shopping and buying clothes and ordering some new crafting goodies. Then I went bowling and on an away green won my match easily by playing well.  Home, got dinner, out again to watch another bowls match on a lovely evening with the added bonus of a lager for I had to replenish my fluids!  Home and a go at crafting whilst Dave watched some MORE footie.  I felt happy!   I made the two tags and then indecision set in.....what colour card.....what embossing.....what...what....what.  I packed up!  Not unhappy, but frustrated.  As I said before the photo say it all. 

Hope you all have a good WOYWW day, I hoping that visiting you talented crafters will inspire me with what to do with these tags.  So beware, I'm picking brains today....wonder what you've got to show me???!?!????

Been there - done that!!! I know this is a stupid question - what does WOYWW stand for? I know it has to be something about "Way Out Your W Wednesday"?

Definitely something interesting there and I don't mean the Fred Olsen cruise brochure. Hugs BettyXXX

Decisions, decisions. Sound a bit like me when I start a new project. Love the various papers you have chosen though. Have a great WOYWW.

Scarlet behind the harlequin and black followed by lime green behind the other. Easy huh!! I thnk walking away is the best solution, fresh eyes in the morning - bet you've finished all this by now!

I am so glad to hear I am not the only one who sometimes suffers from the 'indecision' syndrome, makes life such hard work. I've had that today, and I MUST finish this card by tomorrow aaaagh!

Have you finished your tags today? At the moment I finish mine by stamping out a separate image - such as a birdie - and then attaching it off to the side of the tag - think I have a couple on my blog somewhere - its my "in thing" at moment! Hope this helps and happy crafting!

Wonderful tags Ikki, I'm sure that you'll be able to turn them in to something. Sounds like you've been busy and well done on the bowls match. My Uncle plays and has cabinets upon cabinets filled with trophies!

Hugs
