New Glitzy Galz … including our sideshow attraction Unigirl!

This week I have been house-bound with a bad head cold, but still managed to get a bit of work done. Thankfully. :)

Yesterday I digitally prepped 6 new greeting card images.sample-image

Leave me a message below to tell me which ones are your faves or what you would like to see in my next set. Unigirl-stamp-by-N


Here is the new sketch, now digital stamp I did today. Unigirl, the Sideshow attraction! The Unigirl was inspired by a facebook posting today by Samie Harding (aka Journal Girl).

Oct Art Journal Jam

We had a great day yesterday at our monthly Art Journal Jam, which is hosted by the lovely Violette, held at the warm and welcoming Good Day Sunshine Cafe on High Street.

Thanks to Satira who had the great idea of a sketch and pass. We each had 7 minutes to start a sketch and then pass our page to the person on our left, who then had 7 mins to add to it and so on until we all had a turn at each page.

Can you tell which one I started?

Need a British Robot to bring you some tea?

When you are busy creating in your studio space, wouldn’t it be fantastic to all of a sudden have a cup steaming hot tea appear beside you with maybe a biscuit or two?

Sometimes we get so engrossed in our work that a meal time will pass by, but we just don’t want to lose the creative groove we are in, so we wait a little longer.

May I introduce to you, Nanny Crump-bot 9,000!

Keep smiling & creating! Nicci

Jingle Bell ONLINE Journal Party ~ Dec 6th ~ “Brotherly Love”

My brother is a hero to me. I cannot image what he goes through in his line of work as a Fireman day in and day out. He definitely has different strengths than I do, but we do share the ‘creative gene’.

He is fantastic at carving, for one thing! In front of his house stands a Cigar Store Indian, which is over 6 feet tall and a second carving of a brown bear. He celebrated his birthday today. Happy Birthday!

Join in on the Fun!!!
