Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

WOYWW 154 - excited & proud

Hello! This week you find a very excited and rather proud Zoe, but more about that in a mo!

Of course, you want to see the desk - that's why you're here, but have a look for something special ...........


Did you see?  No, it's not all the new goodies, though they are rather exciting and I'm desperate to find the time to play, it's the digi stamp that's the best bit, here's a closer look -



Her name is 'Crafty Boots', and I'm so excited and so very proud of her because I drew her! EEEEEK! My first ever digi design and she's available from Crafty Boots on-line shop! (I know, shameless boasting and over-zealous artist here!) Yes, she was designed specifically for the shop and its owner was very much in my mind when I designed her! So what do you think? Hope you like her! 

Also thought I'd share the shelf with you again as there are some new additions - 


The 2 bigger jars of black and white/blue and white beads have been added, these are for making my wired coil embellishments - bit like this one....


Right I'm off to make a coffee, grab a biscuit, or 2 and start my weekly snoop/nose of your desks! Don't forget to pop over to Julia's at The Stamping Ground to link up for yourselves or just to be plain nosey, go on it's allowed, it's Wednesday!

Big Thank You to everyone who left me comments, kinds wishes and birthday messages over the last week, really appreciated each and every one! Take care Zo xx

Hi Zoe

I saw this digi for the first time a few days ago, it's fabulous and I am really looking forward to using it in a card.

You have an amazing talent and I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing your next designs.

Anne said...

Hi there. Your digi is gorgeous what talent you have!!! You have some lovely things to play with I see. Thanks for visiting me. Sorry to be so late but I have been very busy the last few days. Anne x

Kezzy said...

Wow your blog is fab, thank you for your kind words on my woyww post, I'm so happy you did as I'm really learning from your blog lol. The salt effect looks fantastic and I'm definitely going to give it a go, love the way you use your wire gizmo, I have one but only used it for jewellery making, never thought to make embellishments for cards what a brilliant idea. Wow your first digi is gorgeous, I can't believe its your first, and I'm sure there will be many more to come :-). I love the skin tones you used on this image, but can't quite pick out the flexmarker and promarkers on your desk that you used. Love the new card you put on, and I hope you don't mind I shall be having a go with your skin tone with the antique white, fawn flexmarker and sunkissed pink promarker, love the hair but I don't have the beige and champagne copics you used. Your colouring is amazing, I love the colour you used for her jumper the almost minty green that goes fantastically with the new peacock distress inkpad, which pens did you use for this? Stunning card and I love the papers, image and embellishments. Happy woyww, sorry I'm late this week :-) Kezzy xxx
