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!

Halloween - Take 3

Hi, welcome to my blog of this WOYWW morning. If you have not heard of Julia and her group of exposing crafters, pop over to see her from the link on my sidebar.  Today is also my third Halloween  post this week, again if you've not heard of the Elusive Image Design Team  Blog Hop - why not bat over there and join us - there's candy about!

Today I'm making Halloween gift boxes and on my desk......
are some of the bit and pieces that I had left over from various projects and decided must do something with!
In the background,  are a few more spooky things that will fly in over the next two days. Friday is the day when the winners will be drawn. 

Here are my boxes that I'm going to fill with tricks and treats for my grandchildren - I thought if I made a few (and they are easy) it would make a great suspense game - have you chosen a treat or a trick?  Ooohhhh, what's inside????
 
These little boxes are made from a square of 6" x 6" paper.
Would you like me to do a project showing you how to fold them?

Back to the Blog Hop and the candy - as Lin said

Eye of newt and ear of bat
put my name in the lucky hat

You will find my Halloween teamies lurking over at the EIDT blog waiting to welcome you! Why not come over, make them jump with a big BOO and put your name in the hat.....
