Hi Everyone!

What's up guys? I still cannot upload my blog via Internet Explorer, so I am using it via Firefox. Traffic to my blog has slowed down drastically, which means, anyone using IE is indeed experiencing problems.

Anyway,I have already put up my typepad blog and I am trying to work my head around it. Though there are a few similarities with the settings and layout, typepad is different.Blogger seems so much easier but maybe I am used to it. So, pretty soon, I will have to say good bye to this blog I love so much and start afresh on Typepad. I will put up a link and I hope from the bottom of my heart that my followers will follow me there as well...I will keep a message at the top of my blog.

Now, coming on to Smirk Range. I am totally in love with this range. I found them to be pretty, cute, stylish, yummy. You want to eat them, they are so cute. I have made a video tutorial using them.Enjoy!

The pictures will have to wait...but the video is here.

Crafty Individuals

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all keeping well. I have been under the weather with a cold/hay fever but I am all good to go now. I have been very annoyed with my blog recently since I couldn't load the page. I have Firefox now but I am also working on a new blog. So, bear with me.

A quick post to show the new video I have made.I would like to apologise for the quality this time since it was filmed at night and Istill do not have a decent desk lamp which will provide enough light. I need to think about this, seriously!

Panic in Blogland...

Hi everyone!
I have not been able to load my pages since a few days. It was frustrating and also, I was so scared that I have lost all my projects.

One of my friends asked me to download firefox and try opening my blog with it, so did I , and it is working. Basically, it is not being loaded on Internet Explorer so I believe anyone who has Internet Explorer should be having the same problem. And I didn't know until I received emails from friends saying they can't load my webpage of my blog.

Anyway, this is why I have not been, it is time to decide...Do I upgrade to typepad or not? This is the question...I am thinking about it and meanwhile,I am going to try and load my blog via Firefox. So , sorry if you do not hear from me anytime soon.

I will try my best...

I am so confused right now so I don't even know what to say to you guys...I never expected to have this type of problems. But don't give up on me as I haven't given up on you!!!!

I am going to also give online classes....more info as soon as I can..

Take care

Lotsa love,

She also demonstrates on Create & Craft TV.

It was lovely working with Aly and Roy. They have been very supportive.Further more, they have cute stamps, made from very good polymer, for many occasions. They also have an online stamping project club so check them out HERE.

Here are the stamps and as soon as they will be up on the DF website, I will let you all know, but meanwhile, why not take a browse and let your imagination runs wild!

Mostly, you can catch me on week ends. If you have some burning questions, email me and subject titled it 'urgent'.

Okay, here is a video tutorial I made couple of weeks ago...(sorry, never got round to upload). I hope you will enjoy it and rate , comment and susbcribe. I need your support to carry on making videos as I have explained before, this takes a lot of time and if I do not see many interests , then I will not make any more video tutorials but will keep blogging, of course.

So, this is my video tutorial and if you can double click to view it straight on youtube , that would be great.Take a minute, register with youtube, and susbcribe so you can be among the first to know when I am making new videos.Also, it will be an opportunity for you to support me by rating and subscribing...yesno?

Hi everyone!
Hope all is good with all of you. Quick update:I have been super busy lately with work. I've been doing nothing but work work work and this long week end is going to be another busy one with birthday party to go to and friends coming over and what not! But , I will try to squeeze in my crafts somehow somewhere.Going to voice over a video in a bit...

Anyway, even though I hate the fact I cannot craft as much as I want, I love the buzz of being busy.I get very tired though - no gym or whatsoever, no time! But at least, my mind is busy and I don't have to think of the whys of so many things.

My heart goes out to my friend Laura who lives in Mexico. Laura you must be going through a difficult time as even though the swine flu hasn't reached your area and hope it will not, I know you are stressed about it. I watch the news everyday and the update does not sound too good. Some people has got it in the UK and there has even been a school closure so far. It is worrying but, let's have faith it will not be any more dramatic than what it is now. My heart goes out to those who died from this. Like it was said on the news, many people died from seasonal flu in the UK. When I first came to the UK in february couple of years ago, I had such a nasty flu and I knew then, that, the flu u might catch over here is not the flu I would get back home.Here it is really really bad.

And I have been sick mostly around winter time and I have never felt like this before, from flu.So I guess, yeah, I am worried about the swine flu as no matter where I am, if there is a break out of flu, I get it. So , could this reach me? But my husband said I should not worry about the the way, its time for BBC news...Catch you guys laterrrrrrrrrrz.

200 Subscribers on Youtube!:)

Hey guys, guess wot! Ive got 200 subscribers now on youtube! My 200th subscriber is buncobuddy and I did promise myself that if, IF, one day I do reach 200 subbies, the 200th one will receive a handmade card from me, anyone from my blog, or a specialised and personalised one. I honestly was not expecting that many subscribers.

I started making videos to prove a point to myself that I can do it after I have taken a 2 hours course at work on windows movie maker. Then , when I started, I was not confident and found it to be more of a hassle than anything.But I have had so many positive feedback, and encouragement , among which were from Cazzy and LazyKay:) that I carried on and then more and more positive comments came my way. The more comments I had, the more eager I was to make the videos.

It takes time to make, yes, on youtube its only ten mins, but when I actually make them, it takes longer and then I edit them.I am not very good at making them in one go. And to publish them on my PC takes about one hour or more and to then upload on youtube is another couple of hours...Okay fair enough when its being uploaded I can get on with other things, but, I still have to check whether it has failed and stuff and when it is finally uploaded, then I have to watch it again to add any notes ect...Anyway , I do enjoy making them so, I hope you do enjoy watching them as much as I do while making them.

Bye for now and I hope my luckly 200th subscriber will get back to me asap.

Lotsa love and hugs,

Hi everyone!
Wot's up with you guys? Im not too bad, very very super busy right now.There are so many things going on and I find myself starting a project, leaving it unfinished to start a new one, lol! Anyway, lots of things happening in my life as well, busy as I have never been. I have exciting news coming up as well, but I really cannot say much right now but as soon as everything has been set up and running, I will let you guys know:)'too bad for those who are curious hey!'lol

I have two video tutorials just sitting in my desktop, about 4 projects ready to be uploaded, but I haven't found the time yet and this week is another busy week.So, bear with me okay? I know you will as you lorve my blog anyway!

I just wanted to give a shout out to Savannah , a beautiful young lady who makes beautiful cards and gives such useful tips in her video tutorials on youtube. She is great and I would like you to visit her channel at will find her blog address and twitter info on there as well.

The most amazing thing is she does NOT edit her video, so you will be watching her 'LIVE' you will see her working her way through a mistake, or see how she thinks on the spot, just amazing.

I am embedding a video here , watch it but please go over on youtube, watch it there , rate, comment and subscribe please:)
I think it will be great if you give her your support as she is very talented and trust me, she is still very young and I have so much faith in her and know that she will be even more famous one day!

Bye for now,
Stay tuned for my craft haul video coming up soon...
And more cards and tutorials coming up too!
Take care,
