This is a picture heavy post
filled with exciting news
for 2014

Our final challenge for this year
will last four weeks
and is hosted by our
very talented


Hi, my name's Wendy, but I'm otherwise know as Papersniffer, and yes, I really do love the smell of craft paper, especially the printed kind!  I live in Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, where I spend every moment I can surrounded by paper, glue and pretty embellishments.  I've recently started my own business, , selling my handmade cards and gifts, and I'm learning wet felting so I can make and sell felted products as well a paper ones.
I've crafted in one form or another since I was tiny, but in recent years paper has pretty much taken over my world (and my house!).  If I'm not crafting, you'll usually find me in the kitchen, cooking or baking, or chatting with friends over a pot of tea. 
The challenge Wendy has chosen is:

Wendy would like to see you create
chocolate packages
projects with lots of the color chocolate
Here is Wendy's adorable chocolate package!
