It has been a while since my last Sunday Round-Up but I’ve been collecting links over the last couple of weeks, I just haven’t got around to blogging them until today.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment or get in touch with me about yesterday’s spooky post and I’m so glad I could bring a smile to your faces and perhaps slightly gross you out with the brown snot – tee hee! I grossed myself out too!
Anyone make it to Ally Pally yesterday (or going today?) for the BSSBS? I popped in and managed to meet up with some crafty pals Anika from Anikraft and a couple of my Kuretake Teamies Sarah Hurley and Emma Williams. It is always nice catching up with other crafty folks isn’t it? Which crafty mates have you managed to catch up with recently?
Might have bought a couple of crafty things whilst I was there, well rude not too, oddily not loads, but that was probably a good thing. Did find some fabulous Sari ribbon that I’ve wanted to get my hands on for a bit but thought I might have to order it from one of the Textile shops I frequent!
Ahhh, what to do first with this yummy colour? It is too pretty to touch – Blast! Knew I should have bought two of them!
A little bit of news and a big bit of a thank you to the lovely Janine. Janine has been really kind and linked up my Poppy Tag from sweet wrappers tutorial on the wonderful Deze Is Ook Leuk (This Is Fun!) – Thank You Janine and welcome new Followers and RSS folk who popped on over from the link up!
Onto the links!
Got some ‘have you seen this?’ links you might be interested in checking out if you haven’t
I loved this post from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer about rejection from DT calls, magazine submissions all that kind of thing, we have all been there!
Another one from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is a little interview with Alisa Burke and I just love Alisa’s Daily routine! I need to get my day balanced out a bit better – sheesh!
For you alcohol pen colourers out there Marianne Walker has a fabulous Copic tutorial for colouring with limited colours and grey.
Another one of my favourite blogs belongs to Tammy Tutterow, if you haven’t checked her out you really must. I loved her recent tutorial for making seam binding flowers and they so look like silk ribbon embroidery to me.
Are you linked out? Can you handle a couple more?
Two shout outs the first for this great hole punching to make shapes tutorial from Joanne Wardle and then I just love this bit of stamping on wooden sticks from Faye.
Right I’m off. I shall leave you with this link to a piccy of Godzilla cleaning up after a rampage! If I had the money and the space I would SO buy that!
Have a fun Sunday

Hi.thank you so much for taking time to put a lovely comment on my blog.x
Hope you have had a fab Sunday.
Sounds like you had a great time at Ally Pally even if you didn't buy loads.
I didn't go to Ally Pally but I did go to the Harrogate show a couple of weeks ago and the best part of the day was meeting up with other bloggers and having a good old natter.
I have read your links, and Julie makes a very good point about rejection. I have never been rejected in so far as dt's or magazines for the simple reason that I've never applied for anything. But I know from friends how hard they take the rejection and they feel deflated and lose their confidence. All I can say to them is that crafting is art and with all forms of art 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'. What one person sees as beautiful and creative another person won't like. It's all a matter of taste.
I loved Joannes punched cards, it's a really cool idea..tfs
Hugs Elaine xx
Oh my goodness, I am so very flattered! Thank you for the comment about my blog!
Hi Kim. I went to Ally Pally on Saturday, I never gave it a thought to see if any of the CE DT were going, it would have been lovely to meet you – perhaps next time.
