As it's now Wednesday, it's time for WOYWW.  Check out the link to find out more about WOYWW and Queen Julia!

I've had these decoupage items for a while and decided now was the time to use them up and raise more funds for charity!  I think they are Honey and Hugs, so cute huh.  I used lots of foam pads as you can see by the little pile sitting there waiting to be spread all over the house a la Queen Julia!

I used this new style of ribbon design, I was hoping to cut down the cost of postage, butI'm sure putting on the extra bling hasn't helped!  I had a wonderful Easter surprise of some crafty items from my lovely friend Gill, and she had enclosed some smaller foam pads (smaller in height) and they are superb!  I'm going to do a test run in town at the Post Office and see if they help keep the postage down in the standard rate.

I posted a couple of cards going to the UK the other day, and they cost me 90p each - the lady in front of me had a card going to Cyprus and hers only cost 80p!!!!  How ridiculous is that then?!?!?!

Here's my 'smile of the week', I went to a Photographic Exhibition which was held in a church and I just had to take some photos of the stained glass windows.  Aren't they glorious!!!!  It was only on my mobile phone so not brilliant, but you can see how good they are above.  My Uncle used to be the President of the Society so it's somewhere we always like to go.

The window is wonderful, I Love stained glass and you captured it well. Love your creations and the postage thing is so true, trying to keep the weight and width down etc.

Postage is crazy here isn't it. I try to keep my stuff as flat as poss but very difficult when you work in fabric. x Jo

I love the ribbony bling, Karen! It works really well even though it affected the postage. I agree that postage is astronomical and it's rumoured to be going up again... :(
Hope you are well xx

Wouldn't it be cool to just 'beam' things to others like in Star Trek?! Sure would eliminate postage!

Thanks for visiting!

I had to giggle, I think the postage issues are universal. The stain glass is so beautiful.

I've resigned myself to the fact that I shall ever be running late to get to others blogs due to my work but here I am. Lovely layered cards but I have a soft spot for the one with owls on it :o). I love the ribbons and decorative strips. Postage is a killer here in Oz too
