A New Blog Home and a Happy New Home Tag

Saturday, 16 November 2013

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good week and have lots of fun plans for this weekend? I am not working at the moment (still adjusting to life in Italy) so I don't really get that Friday feeling anymore and I really miss it!

Okay, first some news, I have a new blog home...yippee!  I really loved the design features of Squarespace, but I hated the commenting system, I found it hard to blog hop and also people told me it made it hard for them to comment so I moved to Blogger.  I am kind of sad as there is no export feature from Squarespace to Blogger so I have lost all the comments which upsets me and also I have lost any links back to my blog which also upsets me.  On the plus side, rather now then in 6 months time when the damage would be much worse!

Anyway, onto happier things... can you believe that last week I entered two challenges and was announced as the winner on both?!  I was so happy I thought I was going to burst and quite literally did a happy dance around the flat....twice.  It was such a HUGE but really, really, really lovely surprise. After being away from paper crafting for so long it was the best welcome back anyone could ever ask for!

On to this week and I have to say I am just loving the muse over at the CASE Study Challenge Blog this month, she is just rocking my little crafty world!  This week she designed some tags to inspire us.  I LOVE tags, the reason I love them so much of course is that I am soooooooo bad a wrapping presents, I hate wrapping presents, I wish I was amazing at it like my friend who makes every gift look like a work of art but I am not so I make tags to try and distract people from this fact! Over sized tags also make a great substitute for cards  as well... two for the price of one...bargain!

I was going to do a Christmas Tag but I made quite a few Christmas cards last week so decided on a change of scenery.  I cannot tell you how much fun I had making this tag and I was actually a bit sad when I finished it!  I love layers in projects, I think it makes them more tactile and this little tag has layers in abundance!

As I am not working yet I can't really justify spending any money on stamps and, feeling in the mood for something new to play with, I decided to design all the elements/Digi Stamps myself which was also a lot of fun!

Anyway, I hope you like it :)

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a great weekend!



  1. That is one adorable tag! Love all that beautiful layering and dimension, and how you used brown for the honeycomb instead of the usual yellow :) Thank you so much for joining us at CASE Study!

  2. Thank you Tasnim! I thought the brown would look more natural :)
