Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

Seeing spots before my eyes…

Well, I have recovered from my nautical adventures and as I am so grateful to be back on dry land, I have made two books at once to celebrate. Both use the same spotted paper but with two different contrasting papers.


I also had cause to be cheered up by receiving a ‘Rocking Girl Blogger’ award from Miss Ladybug. Thanks you so much! I love the ‘Girl’ bit but after yesterday, not sure about the ‘Rocking’ – reminds too much of the boat!


As is usual with these lovely things I am passing it on and awarding it to:


These are all great blogs which I really enjoy.

    You’re really quite good. I had a good time browsing through your posts. I LOVE that ship. Very cool.

    Once again, thanks for the kind words! It’s all in the paper…nice paper, nice books follow. I am obsessed with buying paper. Now I just need to buy a plan chest to store it in…..

    Thank you very much! I enjoyed my visit to your blog too. Lots of good stuff to while away the hours!

    Glad you enjoyed your visit. I will tell Jenny you loved her boats – she will be thrilled.

    I really like the second one as I’m always a sucker for the color red.

  10. Diane September 17, 2007 at 4:19 pm

    You and me both! I have so many red papers and I have to make myself use other colours sometimes!

    I LOVE these, Diane! I, too, am, enchanged by graphic papers — well, to be honest, I love ALL decorativel papers. I, like you, have what I call “paper lust.” I used to feel guilty about my constant paper purchases, but then decided that, in the bigger scheme of things, it’s a fairly innocuous vice (except in the pocketbook, of course).

    I know what it’s like.

    There should be an organisation to help us. Paper Buyers Anonymous – except that Paper Mojo, Paper Source and Falkiners would probably go bankrupt without us and that wouldn’t be fair, would it?

    I really need to get a plan chest to keep it all in, instead of letting it spread all over the kitchen table….
