It's a party!


"Grow your Blog!"


Hello everyone 
and 
welcome to my humble blog!
I always wanted to start a blog, 
a place were I could share
all the little things I love to do, 
but never had the courage to do so.
In a way I was afraid that I could not find the right words to say
or my little creations just weren't pretty or good enough to share with anyone!
But one day in May of 2011 I just sat down,
got all my courage together
and
"My Paper Daisy" 
was born.
Yes, it was a labor of love, lots of pain
and a few not so nice words,
 to the first post actually happened.
I learned in leaps and bounds
(still do)
but the best of all,
 along the way,
I met a lot of wonderful creative people who
keep inspiring me in a wonderful way!

 This is were the magic happens!
I love this spot, sometimes I just sit there
looking out the window, DAYDREAMING!
 For right now I took over what used to be our study...
 ... yes, I know, I need to get organized!
I promise its on my to do list for the new year!
Also my blog started out to be mostly about
my love to stamping, card-making and
paper-crafts...
 ... lately I also started sharing my
 little addiction with fiber.
Mostly knitting and crocheting, you never can have enough yarn!
This is my newest project,
a new scarf!
And ever now and then there will be a post
about all the beauty that surounds me!

Well, enough about me,
I think I will go blog hopping now!
Thanks for stopping in and
giving me the opportunity to share a little of my
creative life with you!
A special thanks to
Vicki
at
2 Bags Full
for hosting this wonderful event!

HAPPY BLOG HOPPING!

Diana

  2. I'm visiting from Vicki's GYB Party.
    You have some lovely cards that you have made...I make cards too (you can see them over at www.dormouse.wibsite.com) but I don't have fancy equipment (I wish I did! We just can't really afford it at the moment) just stuff I buy on discount. Still, I'm going to follow you to get inspiration for my cards.

  11. Hi, Diana - thank you for dropping by my blog earlier! I'm looking forward to having a trawl through your creations here - but in the meantime, I love the colour of the yarn you're using for your scarf! Please show us the finished artical so we can all admire it!

    As for 'organising' - in my view anything that's too tidy and neat suggests it doesn't get used so well! As long as you know how to access everything you need why waste 'creative' time keeping it all in regimental order! (well, that's my lazy excuse, anyway! ;-p)

    Lovely to meet you - now following!

  15. As addictions go, they are positive addictions. I know what you mean about sitting a daydreaming. But, sometimes that helps us get out thoughts together. I find I do that most when I have started a card and just don't know what direction to go.

  25. Hello Diana - I am here from 2 Bags Full.

    I love your cheery banner and the daisy's scattered on the page. It makes me smile.

    I had a lovely time browsing your blog and looking/drooling over your many paper craft items. And I love the idea of the flower band as I don't like things around my neck as well.

  28. Hello Diana, it is so nice to meet you! Your blog is so cute and inspiring! I appreciate your having popped by my blog and leaving a sweet comment.
    I want that typewriter you are displaying some rubber stamps on, lol :D I am your newest follower as I think we just might be kindred spirits. I too love stamping and card making and paper arts and, and, and... but recently I have rekindled my love of fiber and have been crocheting and knitting again. I am even hoping to learn to spin my own yarn this year!

    Well, off to visit a few more blogs,
    Hugs and talk again soon,
    Beth P
