what a great day! i am pleased to say i sold heaps! the cup cakes where so popular and my fridge magnets, brooches and heart shaped wheat bags where popular too, we are already planning the christmas market. as you may know it will be summer here in new zealand, yes christmas in the hot sun! it may be hard to imagine. because of that we sometimes lack the real traditional flair that europeans etc enjoy. because my roots are in germany and my organising team are from britain, we are going to create a real christmas market, unlike eastbourne has experienced! the only thing missing will be the snow! ....that's a thought we could get it shipped in,... well perhaps not!

thanks for the nice comments,i am still waiting for someone to use my patterns for such things as wallpaper, it's always fun seeing a single image in a pattern, it's quite surprising how it changes!

here are a few more of the pieces that i told you i have just finished,

thanks again for all your lovely comments, i enjoy waking up to them!
a few have asked me how come my work is so neat. well, if you do it as much as i do practice makes perfect! i use a scalpel blade not scissors as it allows me to make smoother curves. i achieve my huge selection of hues through painting my own paper. i think i have over 20 shades of red! one more secret~ i don't cut the circles free hand, i use a compass with a blade attachment.


im so excited, look what i found in our local second hand shop! i absolutely love old games,especially the colours.

hi everyone! i was about to clean up after a hard but successful day cutting for a new range of cards for lagom and i thought i'd send a few pictures of my work space. it takes quite a while to sort out at the end of each day, as i am accumulating more and more coloured papers!
