A new blog..

.. Called  Paper Papillon..

I have bought my own domain about 6 months ago and it is about time i used it..
I really felt like something new and different..
and would love to find out what you all think of it?!

This post is to re-direct all of my followers that read my posts in readers
and blogroll lists, as this will be the last one that will be updated on there.

Any other links will automaticly be directed straight to my new blog.

There is only one problem with the big move..
and that is that I can’t seem to link back to my .com site on any of the Blogger blogs

If you know of any of answer to that..
I’d be forever gratefull!

Sincerely hope to see you there,

Big hugs,

Marlene xx



Candy Winners..

My blog is three years today.. Yay!

And eventho it is just a virtual thing..
Never in my wildest dreams did I know how much pleasure a blog could bring.
From reading comments to making new friends and
even meeting fabulously creative blog friends from all over the world in person..
Just amazing!

Don’t get me wrong..
Blogging can be a full time job at times!
Especially when ‘real’ things in life needs to take priority
or when your Mojo takes a runner..
and you just need to take a break..
but then it’s doubly as nice when you get back
you are welcomed with open arms!

So I didn’t just want to let my 3 year blogoversary
go by without a little mention and special candy.

This brings me to the announcement of the winners;

I’ve been meaning to play along with
WOYWW for a while now..
as I’m another one of those messy crafters
that just love to have a nosey at other peoples workspaces,
just to assure myself that there are worse messes out there 😉

What greeted me this morning was a card in the making,
all ready for me to play around with the layers, finish with shimmer paints and decorate!
I’ll show you the card later tonight when I took some pics of it.

To me, the desk looks quite tidy.. I’m impressed!
It usually is a million time worse than that.. lol


Ollie & Ed

I was in desperate need for distraction today as Eddie went to the Vet,
to be neutered 😦

Can’t believe my baby kitty is growing so fast,
but didn’t want to risk him marking his territory what with his brothers around!

Just come off the phone with them and they told me he was absolutely fine,
but the nurse said she didn’t want me to pick him up,
as she wanted to take him home herself!!.. No Way!


Back later,

Hugs, Marlene x

Teddy Bea..

Whilst ‘hopping’ last week at my buddy Kathy‘s blog,
I found out about some new teddy digi stamps..
If you like teddies as much as I do..
You will fall in love with these cuties straight away!

Really got the ‘feel’ of digital stamps at the moment,
it sure took me long enough!!
But I love the fact that you get your ‘stamps’ instantaneous,
print any size and they take no space up in my already over-full stamp cabinet!

My card for today features Teddy Bea,
think she is Teddy Bo‘s sister [or girlfriend!]

*** EDA: Girlfriend.. Thanks Fairy-D 🙂 ***

Bo & Bea even have their own challenge blog which has just started!
Plus I just read on their blog that there are more designs coming our way..
Look out for them on Tuesday 18th of Jan!

My card fits the following challenges:

Teddy Bo: First challenge, Anything goes!,
Sketch Saturday: Provided the lovely sketch,
Allsorts Challenge: Teal blue & Brown combo,
Secret Crafter: With Love



I’ll be back later this evening with the winner of the hAnglar candy..
And also to reveal my Blog Candy with a Twist part II

Hugs, Marlene x

A Jamaican Surprise..

Good Morning!!

As promised I’m back with a post about my ‘Weird’ [and scary] experience after we came back from our holiday

Most of my Facebook friends already heard about it when I was freaking out in live play.. lol,
sorry if you have to read about it again!!!

While in Jamaica, you know.. white sandy beaches & gorgeous views etc,
we found some gorgeous shells and coral [pic above]
that I wanted to do something with back home and I thought it would be a lovely souvenir.
It was the first time I ever took any shells back
so when back in the room,
I wrapped them all up carefully in about 20 bags and packed ready for the trip home.

After all the washing was sorted I unwrapped the shells,
excited about all the things I was planning to do with them..

Imagine my surprise when something just jumped out of one of them
and shot under the guestroom bed!!!!

As I said, freaking out was an understatement..
I’m not screamish at all, but unexpected like that was not pleasant!

I thought it was a salamander at first,
but after contacting the RSPCA [who were really, really helpful]
we found out it was a Gecko and they took him away after he was finally found the next morning!


They did tell me that after all he has been through,
he wouldn’t make it.. too traumatized!
Plus they are not allowed to release foreign animals for health and safety reasons.


Lily of the Valley Candy..
