A touch of the Orient

This month has been very busy.  Real life has taken over and I am going to have to think about WHAT exactly to concentrate on in the future.  I have been asked to do a lot of different things recently: Give papercraft classes/do wedding invitations/undertake personalised embroidery for a clothing company...(big NO to the last two!).  I have given craft classes/workshops for several years now but I do not charge (or like charging) for them because crafts have given me so much pleasure and direction in my life and I feel it is wrong to charge for spreading the good news!  I have fallen out with people over this attitude in the past but when when profit comes in Joy and spontaneity fly out the window.

Anyway, enough of my are a few of my Geisha cards made recently just for fun!

Papers used are all Papermania Oriental with MS punches and my own crochet/embroidered embellishments
