The winner is

Last week I mentioned I was having a draw for my 100th sale on Etsy, well the winner is Carmel. It was quite a coincidence that Carmel happened to be my first Etsy customer too. A pack of decorated papers will be in the mail.



I'm busy working on another journal, I spent all of Sunday decorating papers, some for my Etsy and some for journals.




These are some of the pages waiting to be assembled.




This is the paper I decorated at the weekend, ready to have artwork applied before being bound into new journals.




This is a fabric page that will be in the new journal. I love working with the fabrics and especially adding sari silk ribbons, scraps of dyed lace doilies and clothing labels.

How karmic that your first customer was the winner of your 100th sale giveaway!! I love that "wheel of fortune"!

Your pages always look so rich and so bold...you give me faith that I can create like this too.

For JP, it takes a whole day of decorating the papers to make enough for 4 packs of paper or for 4 journals. I then add extra artwork and stamping to them for my journals.

How lucky for Carmel!
I just love all your papers and your journals. This has got to be so time consuming, and I would think, so tiring to make so much in one day, but what you do is always so lovely. I wish I had your energy level.

Hi Ro, thanks for visiting my blog! How did you find me?
You are very lucky Susan is coming to Australia. She is such a talented and fun instructor! I got to travel with her and a small group to France last September, what a hoot! Her laugh is contagious! You will learn a lot, and love the classes. Your journal papers are just amazing! Love them.
