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!

Where I've been!

Hi Friends, you may have noticed that I have been missing this last few days, and this is just a quick note to update you of what has happened to me.  On Thursday last week I had an accident in the car and I was extremely lucky to walk away with only a damaged breast bone and an very colourful bruise from the seat belt.  Although both conditions are painful and I have been affected by the shock of it all, I'm just about coping but life is difficult at the moment for both Dave and myself.  Hopefully, I will be back soon!  Thanks for dropping by.
