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

Well it didn't take me long to mess up my tidy room!  I blame Liz for sending my order so quickly and (as you do) I quickly ripped open the box to see and touch my new goodies!

This is Megan's card to say thank you for her crafting gift - she is just turned 4 and I think going to be a crafter like Nan!  Julia, doesn't your gift look good and so useful too!


I'll show you my new dies in more detail tomorrow, but in the meantime excuse me I'm busy playing!

See you later on WOYWW.  (Link on sidebar for anyone interested in joining us - it's free - it's fun - and you meet some very interesting, friendly, talented crafters.)

Hi there Ikki, I love Megan's card.. well done, little one! Great teacher, eh?
I was wondering if one day you could give some tips on the types of beads and wire you use occasionally for added touches on your cards, and the flowers?
I have never used either and wondered what sort of wire beads and flowers you use, please? Not sure if you have done a tutorial on this before, I did a search and could not find one. Thanks for all your time to show us wonderful cupboard ideas!! an endless treasure trove!

You have a real crafter in the making in Megan. Love the composition of the card. She's better at it than I am.

Sorry I'm rather late in calling in. It's been really manic here the last few days and I had to pop to see my elderly neighbour in hospital last night [only a 62 mile round trip :-)].
Tell Megan her card is really pretty and well done from me :-)

Well done Megan!
Enjoy your new stash and thanks for the late peek.

Chrissie said...

Love the 'new look' blog Ikki. What a great picture of you! I see you've been doing a bit of a designer thing here.
I also love the look of those small butterflies, what a lot of yumminess.
Sorry about my tardy visit, but I've been slightly hors de combat since Wednesday, and still feel slightly grim.
Have a great weekend.
Chrissie

Hi Elaine, just a thought on the email - there's 2 a's and 2 e's it's easy to miss one.
Thanks for the good wishes anyway.
