On The Wings of Love ~ Sugar Nellie

Happy Sunday! It’s Jeanette and I have a new art journal page to share with you :)

I used the digital image On the Wings of Love for my page. I was able to size it so that it fit perfectly onto my 6x8 page.


The image was colored with copic markers, some Wink of Stella on the wings and then I carefully cut it all out.

I created the background my using some water-color paper and some distress inks. I used Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Stormy Sky. After it was dry, I adhered the image and then added a few sequins for some bling.


You can find this image and many others here:

Be sure to check out the Sugar Bowl challenge and we would love to see you over at our Sugar Nellie Facebook page!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
Hugs Jeanette xxo

SOS holiday mode

Sharing this Saturday while I remember.

Before I jump on the first flight out of Scotland to Philadelphia at the first sign of labour, I will be putting Funkykits into Holiday Mode.

Most of our orders are for digital which requires me to do nothing, but rubber orders still do happen!

I will be away for probably three weeks and even with notices up on the home page saying all this, several customers did not take note and were disappointed to have to wait longer for their order to be dispatched when we relocated at the end of July. 

 To keep thinks simple I'll just close and this will also give me time to sort out the chaos in the wear house and maybe locate some more missing stock.

Funkykits will be taking a break for most of September.

If you need a sugar fix, think fast. 

By the time I come back it will be birthday time for Sugar Nellie, how many year?


A hug......

Hi eeryone,
Saturday, first day of the weekend
And that also means it is time for me
giving you some inspiration on this blog.
Today I have choosen a lovely image from the
Gorjuss girl range named the Getaway:

It is a rubber stamp that can be bought here:

I wanted to make something special with this sweet image and
decided to make a CAS card with this sweetie.
I saw a simulair card on a Facebook Group and 
used the idea, but in my own style :) .
Here is my card:

I hope I have given you some inspiration and
that you will enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Untill next time,
Happy Crafting and hugs,


Marilyn here with Friday's Inspiration post and my latest make for Sugar Nellie.
For this card, I used Funky Kit's Fashionista digi image.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to pop back in often because every day one of the gals on the DT features a  new project.  Also, don't forget to enter the Anything Goes challenge at the Sugar Bowl (remember to use a Funky Kits image) and there's always always plenty of inspiration and chatting on the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page.

SOS I've got keys!

Or is that Share On Thursday. SOT

It's been a long hard year at the House of Sugar, that why you have not heard much from me.

Our bricks and Mortar store closed at the end of our lease and we had to pack it all up and put it in storage as I could not find a suitable new home.  Every space I own looks like lockers from Storage Wars!

Kate moved on to pastures new which left little old me to say good bye to all our lovely customers that have supported us over the years. With no place to go, early retirement was on the horizon until I seen just how much stock there was, far too much to write off and donate.

At the same time Funky kits moved into a new building with all sorts of chaos. Lost stock, no wifi, cramped conditionand incompetent  seasonal help.  I'm glad that most orders are now digital and process without any issue. It's still not running a smoothly as I would like and this causes a wee bit of unwanted stress.

But long story cut short, we have a new forever home. 

There is renovation work to be done, and many options with the rest of this sprawls building. A quaint country cottage, garden, own car park, loads of character and features that will make for an interesting store. 

I'll be putting my thinking cap on while on Granny leave, baby due on 14 September so I'll be flying out to Philadelphia to do my bit. As it's my first grandchild, I'm rather excited.❤️
I'll leave the men to "flip" the building and hope that October sees the new improved craft shop open in time for Christmas craft projects and classes.

I'll leave you with the before pictures of the building. It was a pub & restaurant before closing.

The only part of the business with out  news is Sugar Nellie. The DT and sweeties continue to do a fantastic job showcasing the sweet stuff. Fiona has been invaluable in her organising. 

My main job is to find new art but there are so many negatives affecting the industry right now that I'm reluctant to open my self up to more problems. Might just sit tight for a while longer and see how things pan out. 

So as Debbie packs her hospital bag, I'm packing my suitcase full of new born baby cloths, big case is all neutral and one piece of hand luggage in blue and one in pink. Which one shall I grab on the way out the door? Excited much!

Take care sugar addicts and I'll try to keep in touch more, promise.
