Lägg till bildHope you had a great weekend with time for some crafting, I managed to make a Please Do Not Disturb sign. It's for myself when I have my daily meditation break, he he, it sounds pretentious doesn't it!? Well the story is more down to earth, after my spine injury a few years ago I had to go through a lot of different painkillers, but got allergic reactions against all but one. It helps only a little, so I had to find other ways to keep the pain at bay. A girl has to live too! Light daily exercise and a moment of full relax keeps me mobile and no I'm not all healthy, got a bad sweet tooth and totally love chocolate and all things rich. Had a banoffee at Saturday and a piece of chocolate cake today!

I'm entering:
Charisma Cardz Challenges - No Cards!
Colour Create Challenge - Aqua, Purple, Green and White with the optional glitter
Jules' Crafty Snippet Challenge - To use scraps

I've been following the lovely Jules' challenge for inspiration a while, and thought it was time to enter it properly too. So I've only used scraps this time, I often use them for die cutting but almost never for an entire project. I'm quite pleased with the result and have to say that a colour challenge made it a whole lot easier. The text is in Swedish an it says Please Do Not Disturb, Meditation is going on in this room.

I used:
Stamps: Hero Arts long branch n leaf border, TH harlequin pattern
Dies: TH vintage market alphabet and flower, Sizzlits Skittle Dee Doo alphabet, Cuttlebug tag
Papers: scraps and a sturdy piece from a shirt package
Stickles, Distress Inks, Color Box inks and chalks, embroidery thread



  1. Tässä on asiaa, tällainen koriste pitäisi olla joka askartelijatytön ovessa,
    voimia ja jaksamista;-))m

  2. Your sign is beautiful Maarit. I love the wonderful flower.
