My name is Mrs Wonka and I have been a bad blogger!

That's the confession out of the way, I am writing this in the hope that I do actually still have some followers.........

I am so sorry that I have been missing in action for so long, as you know Gramps passed and life has taken over ever since! I have been very very busy craft wise and every other spare moment I have spent with Mr Wonka and my family. Things are finally getting back to normal so I thought I had better get blogging again!!!!

I have so much to share with you, Halloween, cupcakes, new commissions and most importantly lots of crafty show and tells.

Firstly I am so excited to tell you that I am now working with Crafts Beautiful I was first featured in November in their Easy Christmas cards supplement and am also featured in Decembers which I will show and tell soon.

Here is the supplement:

I got two on the cover!!!!!! YIPEEEEEE (So easily pleased!)

Using one of my favorite Christmas ranges by My Minds eye and their die cut elements.
Using one of my fave Penny Black stamps and the best Christmas paper of all time by Doodlebug.
and lastly an SU creation using the "Tree trimmings" and my favorite colour combination, Real Red, Old Olive & Chocolate Chip!

I had better scoot as I am off to work in a minute and can't be late to open the post office! Then this afternoon I have an article for Papercraft Inspirations to finish then an evening with Mr Wonka & Mr Cowell! By golly I do love the X-Factor.

I promise to be back soon, If I do have any followers left, thank you for your patience!


  1. Welcome back Mrs Wonka :)

    They are all beautiful cards, congrats on the exciting news :)

  2. hi Mrs Wonka, No ever real blogger or crafter would abandon you. We all understand life gets in the way and you do not have a spare moment. I recently lost two people close to me and got married, took a long while away from crafting. Sometimes we need that break. And your cards are gorgeous as always. Trying to sell mine to raise money for Cancer REsearch UK, and I am not doing so well for it. lucky you to be in all these magazines would be ecstatic to have a corner in any magazine.

  3. Welcome back!
    Hope you feel a lot better, you have a lot of peoples thoughts with you.
    Welcome to workng on Crafts Beautiful, I have been working for them for about 18 months now and its a great magazine. Well done on getting on the cover of the supplement.
