Hello ladies I was looking around on my computer and realized it's been FAR TOO LONG between posts!! So I thought one better make an appearance before you all give up on me :0) The main reason for my absence is the simple loss of my crafty mojo :( I'm not sure where it went but it forgot to take me :) So after having a good clean up and sort out I think I'm getting back on track, another reason for my non-blogging has been due to some health issues nothing too serious just some hormones out of whack which made me TOTALLY out of whack!! So a trip to the naturapath and and some tonics and pills later and hey presto we think we might be sorted :) It will take a little while but I'll be back on track in no time!!
So while I hav'nt been blogging I've been doing the whole mummy/wifey thing and after being sooooo exhausted ALL the time I did'nt feel like doing much else. So now it's systems ago and I'm in the middle of getting together my christmas collection which I had planned on already having done, better late than never I say!! So please stay with me and stay tuned, pics of pretty things will start to appear!! Hope everyone is enjoying their creativity, I know I'm glad to slowly be getting mine back!!
Happy Creating

Something Special

Hello all just a little post on something I got up to yesterday, it was a beautiful sunny day so we had a bit of a 'spring clean', lawns, windows, cupboards etc. This pic is of a cupboard I've had for a while now and have only just been able to do something with it. You see this 'horn' sewing cabinet was my mum's as she loved to sew but due to her illness in the end it just got too hard for her to sew, now that mum has passed dad said I could have it. YAY!! So now I have somewhere to put my machine ( mums machine and I always had a love/hate relationship) so yesterday I found some time and got to cleaning it out. Once I opened it memories came flooding back of when mum used to sew and when I was just starting to learn, I found some things to treasure like her measuring tape, her needle threader, cottons and some buttons I will one day make something to suit :) When I was cleaning it out my 6 year old said 'its got that old smell mum' and he was right but that smell to me had treasured memories attached, ones you dont realise matter until that person is gone. I then realised that when I was in the middle of fond memories that infact the very next day was mum's birthday, today she would of been 62. So today this is for you mum Happy Birthday! I know your with me every day but 3 years on I still miss you every day and wish you were here. So I will teasure and use this cabinet just as she would of wanted and maybe even a little makeover one day, I will then pass it on to Gemma whom I hope will love and treasure it too one day.
To everyone out there hug your loved ones and dont forget to tell them you love them and treasure the time you have as it is ever so important.
Happy Birthday Mum
Cheers Janelle xxx

Thank You

Hello this is just a little post to say a very BIG THANK YOU to everyone for their button love :o) I cant thank you all enough and this week of sales for the launch of the 'spring time collection' has been awesome!!! I've sold out all bar 2 items which is brilliant I'm so very wrapped and have been working hard and will be ready to re-load items in the next couple of days. So if you missed out on something you wanted stay tuned!
Also I would like to thank miss eb for all her support ever since I started this button crazyness, she always says nice things about my designs and uses them on her LO's all the time :) But she does get an endless supply of Nellie G's !!!!! You see it goes like this - I make - she creates!!! Its fab because shes brilliant at what she does and I simply dont have the time to make the buttons then do the LO's as well!!!! I do get to scrap sometimes though :) So I'm sending all the love right back to everyone who has sent me the 'button love', stay tuned and keep your eye out in the next couple of days for when I re-load!!
