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

Good morning WOYWW'ers, before I show the the resulting mess of my productivity yesterday, I must thank you for the messages I received after my post about the EIDT. I was really touch that so many of you had taken the time to leave me a comment. Sometimes crafting can be a lonely hobby - sitting in a room, yes surrounded by lovely papers, stamps, inks, and things that you treasure and get enjoyment from, but nevertheless alone. My husband is patient (unless he is required to visit a craft shop), encouraging, but not really unable to understand the compulsion I have to craft, nor the mess I make - queue for photo....
For reasons of secrecy (it's all very exciting and you must watch this space so you don't miss the coming ????), I cannot - but would love too because I'm chuffed to bits with the stamps from Elusive Images that I working with.  This mess is from 1 day's crafting - and only part of the room!  As I turn around from my PC desk I cannot see one piece of free space.  My desk has spread to the window sill, chest, sofa, chair, bookcase, and floor.  BUT, I have completed two cards for my required DT commitment and its has been totally absorbing pleasure - today I'm a lucky WOYWW'er and I hope you are too! 



PS: I will show you the cards asap, but if you have not seen any of Glenda's artwork before, if you use the labels section on the sidebar you will be able to see my previous work.

I think a messy work area might well be an indication of "genius at work." Congrats on your DT position - I know you'll be a credit to the team!

Oh Ikki, you are a dear one - your craft space is gorgeous and I'm happy to see that you think it untidy - not so for me - it's take a lot more than that!! Loving your entusiasm for your new 'rob' and really excited to see your take on Glenda's stamps.

Fab space for crafting - I am a Hicky to some of my friends and I started crafting in earnest after having an operation from an accident and having to take early retirement. Coincidences?

peggy aplSEEDS said...

a nice and bright space for crafting! enjoy the creative disarray, i always say!

Tracey said...

You have a lovely area to work in. ohh cant wait to see your new creations. Sorry to read that you get a tad lonely crafting, wish you were closer to Derby as I run a couple of crafting clubs and am always organising a meet up for coffee or crafty shopping. If ever you feel like a trip to Derby, just let me know.

Sorry this post is a tad late but I hope you have a lovely weekend
