Here are the links to the world of Sister Diane:
Cathy of California. She has the biggest collection of those vintage crafting books and magazines. The pictures she uses are simply amazing! Here are some crazy examples (warning! Not for the sensitive eyes) :

It's quite shocking isn't it? But so much fun!

I would love to have:
- Cartier 'Must' perfume
- A print Gocco
- special print paper with that extra shine
- the DVD of Grey Gardens (I love Edie)
- A button-machine (for making large buttons coated in plastic)
- white/red striped fabric (cotton will be perfect)
- Grey paint for my living room (Christian Dior grey, like powdery and soft like pastel, brings out the other brighter colors)
- A kitten
"The Church of Craft aims to create an environment where any and all acts of making have value to our humanness. When we find moments of creation in our everyday activities, we also find simple satisfaction."
Take a look it's a wonderful website..
And of course the great Craftster.org which is amazing for research and for putting your own crafty things online so other people can leave comments.. and believe me, they do leave lots of comments and feedback. It's a community where you can spend hours and hours surfing and scrolling for cool crafty ideas.. The only limit is your own imagination.
And now for my personal goodies!
I've bought these great new profesional scissors, they cut like a knife thru a banana:
I love working with good material, like those scissors, ok, they cost a lot of money but ones you've good scissors you will never curse while you're cutting, ever again!
I've made a scan of all my favorite buttons I've collected so far.. I've only started to collect them since last years November, so it isn't quite a large collection, but steadily it's growing! And with my new fantastic job at Veritas, a crafting shop, I'll have lots of great advantages and first choice on the new collections.. Oh my!
And I also made two tiny little drawings with my red marker :
The first one is called 'Happy Accidents, dancing mishabs' and the second one is called 'Doctor Hedge to the rescue'. I hope you like 'em, cause I'm gonna make some cute felted applications with them. To use as key-hangers.
Ok cupcakes, I'm off to see the Wizard again.. I need some brains and some fantastic adventures..
