Gratitude tag sets

Along with my gratitude boxes i have also created a couple of sets of "top up" tags.
Which can be used to either add to your existing gratitude box,  treasure boxes or add to your diaries.
Sets of 4 available through my ebay shop-
as always- if you dont like the colours or want a special theme or words, please let me know and I will create something special for you.

Fairy Beary affirmation book of happiness

Wow! so pleased with the response to my Fairy beary cards.
Only have 8 limited edition tins left in stock!
Shame to hide them all in tins - so i came up with this creation.
Kinda along the lines of a gratitude journal- but more of a happiness book.
With the 12 illustrations throughout- proudly positioned on pages and hidden in library pockets.
Gone a bit mad with the cuttlebug and embossed alot- AND of course kindy glitz queen!!
you can purchase this album  in my ebay store at

or alternatively- you dont like the colour?? 
I can custom make a special one just for you!

Gratitude Box

  Gratitude Box”

Spiritual art for a soulful journey into your daily life.

Welcome to a journey into the spirit.

This is a special one off handmade altered art creation – a treasure box of                *Gratitude        *       abundance       *        blessings*

A daily journey for focusing on the blessings in your daily life.

If you’ve heard of The Secret or ever read Sarah Ban Breathnaught or seen Oprah, then you’ve probably come across Gratitude journals or Diaries.


Writing in a gratitude journal has created amazing transformation for millions of people.

This type of journaling helps you focus on all of the blessings in your life, and is also a great way to attract more of those good things to you. Appreciation of what you already have is essential in attracting more of what you want!!


Gratitude journals also help maintain a positive attitude, because you train your mind to focus on and acknowledge your blessings on a daily basis. When you consciously feel grateful for the abundance that exists in your life, you are bound to feel more love, joy and happiness all around you. This type of journaling is similar to writing in a diary, but one in which you focus on all of the things for which you are grateful each day. On some days, you may find it a challenge to focus on your blessings, but the more you write in your gratitude journal, the easier it will be to focus on the positive and reflect on the negative things in your life with more perspective.


And with all this in mind I have created a unique treasure box full of individually handcrafted tags .


Every tag in it’s self is a work of art.

I have created 16 tags for you to write your blessings,quotes, sayings and grateful thoughts on. I have hand stamped, embossed, glimmer misted, distressed,  - you name it I’ve used at least one technique on each tag. Papers and cardstock are beautiful quality and a lot of them are rare and discontinued treasures which I am sad to part with- but hope will be of joy and appreciated by their new owner.


The backs of each tag is also stamped and decorated- so there's plenty of room for you to write your musing, favourite quotes or just a simple word that expresses your feelings.


Within the box's lid is an instruction sheet , which makes it perfect to give as a gift to spiritually minded friends and family. Or someone who’s struggling with life and needs a positive pathway to happiness.


The box itself has also been altered with inspirational quotes and comes gift wrapped with beautiful organza ribbons and a thanks tag.


The box is 21x15 wide and 8.5cm high - plenty of room for you to add more treasures.

All 16 tags are 12cm by 8cm and made from quality acid free materials.


You can request a custom made journal or box just for you.


 Keep an eye out for my next Gratitude creation!

 Fairy blessings and joy to you on your journey and thank you for looking.

Yup it's clean out time- embellishment packs galore.
Bit dejected after rude people ferreting through my lovely things at the Vasse market.

helloooooo $12.95 items for $2??? what the hey????? And lets not say anything about the $42 brand new rare sizzix die I was selling for less than half price!
So anyway ....thought I'de rather offer a few bits and bobs to the lovely people on ebay - who all appreciate a bargain and a bit of class!!!! tee hee!
Have been through the bargain baskets, my studio 'shop' collection and 50cent basket and made mega packs of stuff.
there's an ebay auction due tomorrow and another one in a couple of days as well as a buy it now in my store.
