Epiphany Crafts

Today you can find my latest project featured on the Epiphany Crafts blog.

I decorated a witches hat, bought at Xenos. I started with glueing the ribbon to the hat, then sewed the braches on and added the crystals. I had some Nikki Sivils Halloween papers left from the time I played on the NS team. Love this paper so much that I just had to use the leftovers. The pumpkin fitted right into the EC tool with the 14 round clear bubble cap. So cool!

DD just had to goof around when she saw the hat!!

Here you can find some close ups:

That was a long break

Hi all, I'm back..... finally. It's been a long break from blogging and scrapping. After the holidays in the UK I couldn't find the mojo to get started but now I'm back!

First I want to tell you that I've been published in this super magazine from Britain. You can imagine I'm proud!

This is the layout that's been used. It was all about mums and I'm proud of mine so I had to use this photo. Although it's a bit dark it's just how she is.

Yesterday I found a great tutorial on this blog of Creative Inspirations. You might know that I love scents, incense and oils. Now I found someone used a scented oil to give smell to this wonderful paint. I can't wait to get my hands on some of this paint. Looks good to me!

This Chi oil is my favorite. You should give it a try mixing it with paints !!

This next photo is of the English town Glastonbury. The picture is not taken by me cause I was so blown away by the spirit of this town that I totally forgot to take photo's! So you can imagine how much I want to get back!

This town is know for the Glastonbury Thor, where they say Avalon should have been in the time of King Arthur and Merlin. This land and it's history is so special to me. Think I got homesick when I was back in Holland. Felt right at home. Also Wales was so special. Must have lived there in another lifetime!
Anyway, I've picked up some incense sticks there and fell in love with the Stamford brand.
These are the ones I burn the most.

To stay on the spiritual path, I finished my course of Reiki 2 last week. Now it's all up to me to use that energy wisely. It's an old Japanese healing energy. I've done the first course over 15 years ago and now it was time to take it a step further.

Thank you all for your patients. I will show you my layout and project for Epiphany Crafts soon. Have you seen the new blog by Epiphany Crafts yet? It's worth the look!
Have a great week, I promiss it won't be this long before you read more of my creative life!
