I toyed with what to 'title' each one but settled on writing 'the key' on each one and numbering them individually - I've signed them too, just like a 'real' artist, haha! Keys have so much symbolism, meaning, etc. I think it's nice to leave it up to the individual as to whatever sentiment, message, the cards evoke . . . having said that I guess they would be appropriate as 18th, 21st Birthday cards, 'new home' cards, etc. At the moment I'm just enjoying making them and haven't planned where, how, or if I'll end up selling them at all! Very self indulgent, I know :)
More creative peeps over here at Kirsty's place.

My creative space today is a very relaxed affair - I'm having a browse at this lovely pile of vintage lace which I'm hoping to use to add some more texture to my mixed-media card in the background. Yes, I'm still knocking about with this idea - well, I did say I wasn't in a hurry :) I did try to get some old lace in my local thrift shop but there was none to be had, so I relied on good old Etsy instead - what a treasure trove it is! I'm going to enjoy just looking at this lovely pile of yumminess, before I even think of getting the scissors out - that will be the painful bit!
After spending an intensive two entire days doing the Spring clean (Part II!) at the beginning of the week, today I'm enjoying the simple beauty of some lovely citrus fruit in my favourite bowl, which I can now enjoy without all the clutter that had gathered around it. There's a lot to be said for being tidy!
Off to have my coffee break now and embark on some lace-love! More creative 'peeps' over at Kirsty's place :)Cheerio an Drasda

Well, frankly I haven't been here today because I've embarked on a bit of the above! That, and the fact that's it's been another beautiful Spring day here and you've got to grab the good weather when you can :)
Seriously, this month may (or may not!) turn out to be a Spring cleaning month, when I undertake all the domestic tasks I've avoided doing over the last 3 years while I've been busy building (trying to!) my 'tweedie' empire. So, without further ado . . . :(
If I'm not here, I'll be *sigh* up to my hands and knees in soapy water! I will pop in when I can, as I'm sure I'll be crafting in between, and probably a little more than I should :) Apologies for not visiting my fave blogs recently, but you'll understand why!
Bye for now :)

. . . and I actually managed to list it here in my Etsy shop - wonders never cease!
Little Kiddo is doing a project on primitive man at school - we let him loose on one of the walls outside the house . . . I though it was very funny! He got a little carried away and started painting on the opposite side of the wall facing the street, which wasn't quite so funny - he was then promptly equipped with a bucket of soapy water and a scrubbing brush!
I did request that he didn't use too much black paint! . . . and no, it's not an arrow, it's a spear, hehe! Primitive art - I'm liking it :)
