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!

Stamping Ground WOYWW

Hi, old friends, I was thinking this morning surely it's not Wednesday already!!! Where does the time go?  AND, then the thought occured to me that I'd not been over to WOYWW for a long long time so to put that right I popped over to SG and immediately it felt like home seeing Julia desk sitting there as I remember it!  I just love this woman's organization skills - a crafter after my own heart!  Well done Julia for keeping WOYWW going - I'm so pleased that you're still there and that you have so many loyal followers who do visit you regularly. 
My desk is quite tidy today since my crafting mojo has gone walkabouts, but when the postie delivered a parcel the contents did get quickly unwrapped, fondled and then photographed.

These are just lovely gems - great colours - nice quality and a good buy from the sale at Beads Direct.
This is what I'm spending my pennies (read pounds) on at the moment, and I'm thinking of opening a new page in the Cupboard to feature beading which seems to be catching the attention of many.  I love my beads and I think I now have the biggest stash of necklaces, bracelets and earrings than anyone on the planet! 

Thanks for dropping by - hope you are all well - I'll try to catch up asap.

Ikki, couldn't find anywhere else to ask but do you know if the Sizzix Bigz XL dies will go through the Cuttlebug? I know the Bigz ones do both ways round (sandwiched with 2 'B' plates only) so am hoping the XL ones will too.

Hi there Ikki, Welcome - I think this is the first time since I have been doing WOYWW (started in early Jan 2011) that think you have joined that am aware of - yet the funny thing that is how I first learned of WOYWW so great to have you here! and yes can see why you love your beads there are really lovely - think the green ones might be natural stone? cos they look rather similar to ones my friend made me? Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #21

Beautiful beads. You may have to buy a new jewelry box to keep up!

Lovely beads! Yet another side of the crafting world that I intend to partake in. I've even bought loads of beads (which aren't cheap!) but have yet to do anything with them. When will that extra day in the week be invented (it would have to be a weekend day, obviously!)
I'm working my way through this weeks WOYWW - I’m slowly getting there!
