No class in October

Unfortunately, we won't have a class in October, either.  We are all waiting for Hawaii to get to Stage 3 of the Mayor's Economic Reopening which will allow us to have at least 10 people in class.  Hopefully, we will have class in November or even one in December.  We will see so please stay tuned.

I hope you all are well and taking care.

BTW, if you are looking for a fun activity, come join our little tea card swap and 3x3 card swap.  It is hosted each month.  If you would like to join us, drop me an email and I'll send you the requirements.


I wanted to share a card I made for my September tea swapper, Mary B, in Florida.  I enjoyed adding all those little blings on the card since I have so much in my stash.  

The stamp and dies are from Papertrey Ink.

More Ningyogami Cards and No Class on Saturday


Hi, All!  Please note there is no class again this month.  I am hoping that Hawaii will open up on gatherings -- enough to hold class next month.  In the meantime, let's all do our part, Hawaii: Mask up, wash your hands often, and social distance.

I'm sharing more Ningyogami cards today:


My daily routine involves packing a kit of washi paper, glue and scissors, taking them with me wherever I go (including at work). If I have a spare minute or so, I’ll make one or two dolls on the go. Then when I’m back home, I transfer the dolls to cards.

People have asked where I learned how to create them. I found out how to create the basic paper dolls several years ago. Then I just rearrange the clothes or hair until it looks like what I have in mind.

These last two cards, I decided to add more things on them.

but I like the plainer cards better. 

They make the dolls look much more serene and elegant, don’t you think?

It’s been a while ...

It's been a while since I posted some pictures of my Ningyogami dolls and I have made quite a few lately. Here is one of them.

Have a great day!

Thanks for your Kindness

Today I thought I would try a little experiment.  Die cut letters behind a stamped image using Quickutz and my Stamparatus.  I should have stacked the letters higher but oh well.  Not bad for using supplies I had on hand.

Stamps used:  Papertrey Flower Garden and Thanks All Ways
Dies used:  Quickutz Diesel letters

Help, I'm in a slump . . .

Meaning, I haven't felt like creating anything for the past couple of weeks.  Haven't had the energy . . .  Are you feeling like this?  I know it has a lot to do with the Stay At Home mandate.  So, to get out of it and to start my energy flowing, I decided to join Melissa's Papertrey Ink/Ink to Paper Fab Friday Challenge.  Since it is the first week of September, I decided to create a Thankful Autumn card:

I decorated the inside of the card:
and, since I had a spurt of energy, the envelope too:
Stamps used:  PTI Seasonal Borders Autumn and Basket of Blessings. To create "Thankful", I masked the two stamps "Thank You" and "Grateful".

Melissa's challenge can be found HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the long Labor Day weekend!
