Paper fun!
Say hi to Lila, my first ever Paper Art doll...she was fun to make and has moveable elbows and knees just so she can dance and stretch! too cute! I got to use some of my vintage trimming for her party dress...aint she pretty...
She is on her way to the USA now...

So yesterday I had my appointment with the mouth surgeon and the tooth that lost its way and embedded itself in my gum has got to go!! Im bummed about that but hey its the only way if Im ever going to get these braces on so
Im booked in for surgery on the 30th May! As the doctor was talking I was thinking to myself ...' Hmmm but the Papercraft festival is on the
1st June.' ...crafting or surgery??
I know what Id prefer to do but its got to be done sooner than later I guess and I'll be all puffed up and seeping blood from the mouth....not a good look !! Its an overnight stay and I should be back to normal within a week. Looks like I'll be living on liquids or soggy food for a bit...yum, love my soup!

To perk me up a bit I bought this book,
love it!! beautiful pictures, makes you want to pack up and move to Italia and drink espresso all day long....Crustation blogged about the author a while back, its a great book - check it next time you're in a bookstore!

Tommorow we are going to the annual Wine Festival at the Cypriot club. My mother in law volunteers in the womans committee and we promised her we'd go so it will be a day of eating souvalki, honey balls and taste testing wine...hope the weather holds out and I can take lots of photos!
Have a fun weekend everyone....

Some ATCs I made!

  2. Sorry about that, I had a few spelling issues. My cat decided to walk across the keyboard. xox

    I just wanted to say I absolutely adore your trading cards. The images of the girls are so very beautiful.

    I wish I could attend the paper craft fair you were referring to. It would be a wonderful event to see and inspire.

    I hope everything goes well with your tooth. I am also having visits to the dentist at the moment, but mine is for a root canal. I'll be thinking of you. xox

    Hello Lila!!!

    Good luck with your mouth surgery. Just turn it into a positive - you don't have to do much housework or cooking - you can spend your time planning future projects!

  6. I love your ATCs! Great work!

    I'm sorry to hear that you will have to have tooth surgery but hopefully you will recover quickly and be back to your normal self.

    The book that you bought looks delightful and - I agree - it would be so nice to pack up and move to Italy and drink espresso all day long. Count me in! Ha!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend! :)

  7. I've never seen anything like that movable paper doll, it's really so cool. Will you make a bunch to sell any time soon?

    Good luck with the surgery, I bet you won't feel a thing and then you'll get to eat a lot of ice cream and pudding afterwards.

  12. Are you having one tooth removed? It really won't be that bad! I had my 4 wisdom teeth removed and I was fine within a day! I stopped bleeding that same afternoon. Just make sure you don't drink out a straw, you can bust the stitches. I love your little girl, she reminds me of the little girl from The Secret Garden. I LOVE the Italian Joy book. I went to Italy when I turned 18 and I really couldn't appreciate it because I was still a morbid teenager. I can't wait to go back!! I must go buy this book!

  15. So the tooth has got to go huh? Argh. An overnight stay? When I had all my wisdom teeth, they had me in and out in 3 hours. Gosh, yours must be really serious. I am sure it will all work at just fine. It just is annoying...Luckily it is soon. As here, they would tell you you could not get in until, well, a long time.

    Love LILA!! She is wonderful, and so are the ATC's. Can't wait to hear about the wine...
