Thank you for visiting my personal Blog. I have been making cards and other forms of art work for about 8 years. My creative side only showed itself in my late 30's. I have a passion for anything to do with card making and paper. I enter my own world and never like to follow the rules. I will try anything and everything on my creations, I am crazy about flowers. They hold an innocence which can never be bought. Other interests include....... Parchment, Decoupage, Paint-crackling, Crochet and Knitting. I am a married to a wonderful man who supports me all the way and encourages me in what I love to do. We have been married for 19 years and we have one daughter. She is my world.

Hi there everyone
Its been a while since I have worked on my blog. I have been very busy with my home and family and of course crafting.  I am very privileged to have a great husband who bought the the new BLACK CAT CUTTING MACHINE she is stunning. I have been cutting like mad.  I am always looking for ways to save money and I came across a video on you tube. The suggestion was to use the flexable cutting board as a replacement for the cutting mat. "doller store" where would I find this item in South Africa. Well I did, I found them in China Town.  They are priced at R10.00 for two and they work great as a cheap vision for the circut and black cat cutting mat. When they are grubby I will just pop them in the bin and replace them.  I used the Dale repositioning glue 1 part glue and two parts water and it works great.  I also tryed the quilting plastic and that two works great the cost for a sheet is R35.00. So those ladies out there looking for ways to save try these two replacement mats you wont be sorry. Thank you for visiting my blog.
