12 Tags of 2015- June Tag

Hello everyone,

It's that time of the month again...no not THAT time of the month *lol*... goodness, such awful thoughts you all have...it's time to reveal to you my tag for June as inspired by Tim's 12 tags of 2015 challenge.

Now, before I show you anything, I have to admit that when I first saw his tag..I went *GULP*..there is NO WAY I can reproduce ( I don't have that die) and my mind went straight to my smaller coffee die-cut set I bought at the craft fair last month. But I am lucky enough to have a friend who showed me her tag ( she also does not have the same die-cut that Tim uses) and she did such a good job. She inspired me to really give it a go with the materials I had at home. And I did and it's fabulous..I'm really glad I challenged myself to reproduce this tag almost to identical.

So without further ado....I give to you Tim's Tag for June:


And here is my replica attempt:


Not bad - huh!!
Here are some closer pics I wanted to draw your attention…

May Perth Craft Fair

Hello again and thank you for stopping by, Once a year, the Quilt and Craft show comes to Perth bringing with it lots of crafty delight and squeals (from me). This year is the 3rd time in a row I have gone and although, I did notice the number of vendors had decreased considerably, as well as the number of people who attended on the first day (it's usually shoulder to shoulder with me being elbowed and shoved out of the way by crafty old grandmas), I still had a great time!!!
Now, I don't know about you, but I have this thing about MY FIRST BUY!! I agonise over what is going to be my first buy. I feel that the first buy is usually a wish from your inner soul and I always make my first buy my most special one. This year, my first buy was this gorgeous little doll.

I saw her 2 mins after I went through the gates and did not hesitate in buying her. She is adorable!! She is a clothe doll with wooden arms and legs. I actually bought 2 of them. One for me and one for the Nanna down…
