Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 50 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Snippetty Male 60th Card, RE-SUBSCRIBE + WOYWW

 Well, am very sorry indeed for lo-o-ooong silence here. First of all...

ARE YOU GETTING THIS POST BY EMAIL? If you are, or would like to subscribe by email, you need to see this post HERE. (Thanks to those who have, you’ve really truly blessed my heart)

 If you blog and use blogger Feedburner you also need to check that post out! No emails sent of our blog posts from July 1, 2021. I’m very happy with how new system is working. It’s been very encouraging actually. For WOYWW, as tis Wednesday, pop over to Julia’s Stamping Ground!

My desks earlier in the week, I had a male card to make for a special decade! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ at this stage I’m trying to make up this vague “simple” card idea in my head .. you guessed it, it was NOT simple. Way too much die cutting for comfort really.
This is stage two, when have figured out layout and die wise, now just doing unlimited (it seems) cutting. The card idea was stimulated by his sister’s comment that he was in denial cause he kept saying the wrong decade!

Here is the finished card and the background is printout snippet not used on another card, along with most of other card except the base. (So off to the Snippets Playground, yay!).
Also I print out an insert to go inside the card, like in bought cards. This what I wrote.

Australian sights: Just quickly, yesterday out walking, I spy a lorikeet in a flowering paperbark, a beautiful melaleuca.

And then sun setting on Sunday evening here in town, isn’t that beautiful?

.. love autumnal lights, truly they show the creative power of the Creator. Look around your room, house, car everything there had a creator .. a hand that made it?! And it’s no way near as complex as the beauties of the natural world or even the hand that types this post on mobile. Our hands are amazing tools, yet some folks sadly doubt that they had a Maker!

As I pondered that fact, this verse came to mind.. may it bless your heart as it did mine. It's a prayer I often pray!

That they may see, and know, and consider, 
and understand together, 
that the hand of the Lord hath done this, 
and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. Isaiah 41:20

Thanks so much for popping over to this blog, especially as I’m time poor on mobile device, thus struggle to return your kindness.

Lord bless you, dear ones, in every way this day, you are so precious to me,

Prayer hugs, ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—

PLEASE RESUBSCRIBE - Emails of Blog Posts CEASE July 1, 2021

 Dear friends, I am sorry for silence, just posting quickly to let you know that Blogger has decided to withdraw the EMAIL SERVICE by Feedburner. 

If you get this post by Email, you NEED to resubscribe, by coming onto this blog post. 

Especially as I’ve become such a erratic blogger unless you’ve subscribed you simply won’t know I’ve posted.

See the form at the top of sidebar of my blog (link here, if on mobile phone you will need to scroll down and select "View web version" at bottom of page) sorry it may take a while for sidebar to load fully, if on mobile device like me. ๐Ÿ˜•

There is the SUBSCRIBE BY EMAIL and Contact Me form.

Especially if you’re on outlook you will need to RESUBSCRIBE, by FILLING IN THIS NEW FORM ON TOP OF SIDEBAR.

I’ve at present 1,250 approx, supposed email subscriptions. I reckon at least three quarters are spam. About 75% are outlook with weird addresses, so I'm deleting them.

Outlook subscriptions need to resubscribe.

Please re-subscribe even if you’re not an Outlook address, so I know you’re NOT SPAM.

Thank you.

We have the month of June to sort this mess out! Not really happy with Blogger doing this, but since it’s a free system I’ve really no right to whinge. I don’t want adds on my blog, so choosing to do it myself. Most other ways involve adds or some such. To be honest I couldn’t figure it out. This is how Loll of “Stamping with Loll” is doing it.

 I need to collect all addresses together, then set up free email account especially just for sending emails of blog posts and do a copy and paste of my blog post each time I blog, and email it off to you...

At least you’ll get them more quickly than when feedburner does it. That’s a plus. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ as I’ve two blogs I’ll have to do it twice. 

My Christian blog however has only 25 subscriptions and I can be sure they’re not spam as know most of them. However put same link there for those who want to join.

BTW If you’ve a blog, then to check your subscription addresses you need to log into Feedburner. Use same email address and password as you use for blogger, as it’s owned by blogger. I just Googled “login to my Feedburner”to get in (update however this doesn’t always work, used below method lately). 


Step 1. Login to your own blog account.

Step 2. put in actual address which is simply 

That link took me into the blogger account I was signed into.

Step 3. You have to select you blog name, which is hyper link there. Mind you it took me 20mins of searching to figure out how to get in!

Step 4. Then you select the “Publicize “ tab at top, and scroll right down to bottom of that.

Step 5. select “Email subscriptions” link. They then pop up then down below. (See also edit at end)


So, yes, work involved but love blogging. 

Just would that time wasn’t such a scarce commodity these days. 

Nothing to do with me getting older or slower of course! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Any questions, please ask me at the time of subscribing for emails, I will do my best to answer them. I’m no expert, my God’s a great help though.

{Edit, to clarify at the end of post}

And to close I thought I’d share just how good my God is... 

Today I was in the computer/ craft room doing the bulletin printing for our church oldies group (yes, that includes  me ๐Ÿ˜‰). Checking my mobile phone  calendar re pension dates, I noticed...

Eeeek! Monday 24th, I had an eye specialist appointment in half an hour. 

Wow! My Dr comes up from Sydney once a month, you have to wait months for an appointment. They usually ring you with a reminder the week before, but were as it turned out understaffed, so zero reminder. I’d been away ten days, then full on weekend of family reunion, church etc. so it had totally fallen out of my head.

However, our great God is never understaffed, nor suffering with a vacant headspace, and He graciously made up the shortfall. 

I was quickly ready, changed and in the car arriving for appointment two mins before due time! Oh, and eye condition is stable! ๐Ÿ˜„

As my dear friend, Maz, often says, “Ain’t God good!?”

May our wonderful Father God bless you and all your dear ones in every way,

Prayer hugs ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค— Shaz in Oz.x 


You really don't need to log into Feedburner if you dont know how or can't figure it out just do following.

Go into layout settings on the blog you have. 

*Select add a gadget. 

*Select add a Contact Me Form or whatever the contact widget or gadget is called. 

*Write on it "Subscribe to new blog Posts by Email or Contact me" 

*Add it to sidebar.  

*Save email addreses into your email and send those folk an email to say you've posted and the blog link.  No need to copy and paste whole post if too hard.

  So basically: 1. its add the contact me gadget. 

2. Save addresses.

 3. Send an email when you've a new post.  No harder than blogging. 

If you dont want to do it that's okay too..
