An Interesting Week

this week has brought a few extra challenges to our lives. Hubby had surgery on Tuesday, and will now be off of work for a minimum of two weeks (most likely six weeks - still to be determined). He is home now and is recovering slowly. This has meant, I have had to slow things down with classes from home and me running about. I will be back up and running at usual pace as soon as things slow down here.

My boys start school holidays in just over a week and that will hopefully mean I will be able to get back into my favourite room to craft to my hearts content. (Only time will tell).

I have a few projects that I have had fun playing with. If time allows I will pop past and post some pics for you.

Classes will be running (hopefully) from next week and over the holidays. As, soon as I have had a chance to look at the new projects on line I will let you know what we will be up too.

Oh, while I remember, If you are fan of Kaszazz on facebook, you may have been lucky enough to see my double layout of my niece. Kaszazz are using it as an advertisement for new projects. I was really excited to see it there.

Until, I have a chance to pop back, have fun crafting

Facebook and the suitcase.

Hi all, if you are a consultant and have found yourself taken off my friends list on facebook, please do not take it personally. I have decided to keep my personal life and Kaszazz business/hobby as two seperate parts of my life. As, they should be. I still have by Kaszazz Creative Challenge group and you will find me there if you need me or wish to converse with me in anyway. My life is needing me to step back and re assess what is important. MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CREATING are really high on my list of priorities. I am still running my regular workshops from home on Friday evenings and my community class on Monday afternoons. If you would like to know more about these please let me know and I will pass on the details.
SUITCASE. This little creation has had me email bombarded with lots of emails and lots of comments and discussions on Facebook. I have therefore decided I will write it up as a workshop, test it and submit it as soon as possible. Please give me some time to do this. I am going to have to work out how to make it fit into the specs for a workshop. And the timing needs to be perfected for a group activity.
Have fun creating
Until next time

I've been busy.... Creating

Got to love long cold weekends. I have had an amazing time hanging out with family and doing all the wonderful indoor things. Which ment I had a great opportunity to finish this fortnights challenge early. This fortnights challenge was DISTRESS. I had no idea what I was going to do. After lots of thinking and getting prepared to start another double layout, I came across a cute little suitcase in a magazine and all the measurements were the. I had to give it ago, and managed to do it all in Kaszazz products. I got so carried away with how cute the suitcase turned out, I lined it and made a little fold out book to go with it. I distress all the edges with Vintage photo distress ink. The straps for the suitcase are covered in distress crackle paint. The little books edges have all been distress with the distress tool and vintage photo distress ink. I had a blast making this project. Now to decide what to do with it. (oh, if you are interested all the words and images are travel rubons).

Blue and White Inspired Cards

These cards were created for the Kaszazz Creative Challenge Page on Facebook. The theme for this fortnight is Asian/Oriental, any creation you like (as long as it is using all Kaszazz products). I was a little lost at what to do. However, when going through a stack of dishes, I was inspired to stamp a page in all blues with the new asian inspired stamp range. I had lots of fun deciding on what inks to use. In the end Distress Inks won. Five shades of blue have been used. Copen Stain ribbon and Antique Rhinestone Brads and Crystal Ice Stickles have finished off the cards.
