Oh where does time go?

Posted by swewi on December 3, 2015

Dear blog readers, I apologise! It’s been way too long since I updated here! I have been VERY busy, and it’s been great. Not imagining it will slow down any time soon, seeing as it’s December and all!!

So what have I been up to? In my personal life, October and November was VERY busy with kids and school – AND I starred in a musical! I was the Fairy Godmother in “Cinderella”! It was so much fun! An amazing experience! I haven’t done something like that in 20 or so years, so it was simply fabulous. And the Fairy Godmother is a fantastic role to play!

Looking forward to scrap a photo or two from that experience soon!

In my scrappy life – Sketchabilities finished, Karan decided to close the site. And – I stepped down from Clique Kits. It was an outstanding experience to deal with Social Media with a growing Kit Club, but it turned out it wasn’t for me. I will still be a subscriber, because their kits are fabulous, but I won’t be part of the Leadership Team anymore.

Since I blogged last, I have been scrapping a little, not as much as I wanted – but here is what I have done:

For Cocoa Vanilla Studio:

be yourself

all grown up

Backing black


Using Clique Kits featuring Cocoa Vanilla Studio:

sing your song

Using Clique Kits featuring Pinkfresh Studio:

just be you

Using Clique Kits featuring We R Memorykeepers:

lovely sweet girl

And my last LO for Sketchabilities, using Cocoa Vanilla Studio:

AnnelieMaddock #148

What have you been up to? And what does your DECEMBER look like??

Let’s squeeze…

Posted by swewi on September 30, 2015

…a blog post in, in September! I have been a useless blogger haven’t I!

After sharing on Instagram and Facebook I seem to forget the blog. Sorry about that if you have been visiting and found NOTHING new to check out!

Here’s what I have done since my last post! First up, Cocoa Vanilla Studio. Their new collections “Tis the Season” & “Life is Beautiful” are absolutely stunning!

these are the best times

you & me


 Cocoa Vanilla Studio was also featured in the September Clique Kit


Then, it’s time to share my Sketchabilities LO’s!


I used the May Clique Kit for this LO, and a bunch of products from Color Cast Designs:

AnnelieMaddock #145


I used the September Clique Kit featuring Cocoa Vanilla Studio for this one:

AnnelieMaddock #146

And lastly, using the August Clique Kit & Color Cast Design products:


AnnelieMaddock #147

Phew! This is what happens if you “forget” to blog for a while. If you’ve made it to the bottom of this post – congratulations! Do you have a favourite amongst the LO’s I shared today?

I can NOT believe it’s August already. Honestly, this year is flying by… Even my almost 9 year old said this morning  – where is this year gone mamma? I really don’t know!   Unfortunately I am WAY behind in my Project Life, but I guess as long as I take photos, make notes and WANT to get back into it – it’s OK right?

I have however done a bit of scrapping 🙂 First up a LO for the latest Sketchabilities sketch:


Sponsor for this challenge is Infinite Designs Scrapbook Studio.

Find them here:

Here is my LO, using items from a couple of different Clique Kits, and a few things from my stash.

Thanks for coming by today, hope to see you soon again!

Happy E

Posted by swewi on July 27, 2015

Last week I finally had some time to scrap, and I got out my August kit from Clique Kit – AMBROSIA.

I just love the soft colour palette from Pink Paislee in this kit, with some “punchy” embellishments to add 🙂

happy E

I simply LOVE the pineapple vellum in this kit, and those flamingos? Adorable! Just like my Elsa 🙂

New sketch up!

Posted by swewi on July 18, 2015

I am a few days behind posting this, but it’s been crazy around here! Yesterday I quit my day job! Have been there for 5 years, but I decided to leave. The last few days I have been crazy busy trying to teach someone else how to do my job. Not as easy as it might seem at times. Long story short – I am gone and I am so HAPPY!

So I missed posting the latest reveal for Sketchabilities on Wednesday – but here it is now! Sketch #143 is another inspiring sketch from Karan:


I used the July kit from Clique Kits for my LO, plus a few veneer frames by Amy Tangerine from my stash.

AnnelieMaddock #143

Some close ups – because I can!
