Welcome to my blog and thanks soso much for spending a little while peeping into my world


whichever order I put them in, these are my passion!

... all from my little home studio in Durban, on the east coast of sunny South Africa!

Today is  
International Non-Violence Day  
(shouldn’t EVERY day be non-violence day?!) 
and to celebrate important and other wacky days in a lighthearted manner - and I don’t mean we need to take serious issues lightly- there IS a difference - we at Bugaboo Stamps celebrate Humour me Wednesdays.

Humour = Laughter = Positivity … and the power to change the attitude of the world.

So let me share a little humour so you can start changing the world from your grassy patch, while I do the same from my end…..
and let’s get our good friend Gus to help us:

Isn’t he the greatest?  This Bugaboo image, called Frame It - Gus - her nagging, was coloured using Copics, and matted onto teal CS.

I think the DP is particularly appropriate cos I can almost hear Stella nagging in the background,
‘mow the lawn’
‘wash the car’
‘rake the leaves’ ETC ETC 

I also used a stick on border matted onto the teal CS, and some gems.

(and Stella plotting his death …. Nah, I don’t think so …. If you go to the Bugaboostore and see the images of all that they have been through together … Gus ‘n Stella are immortal! and not done yet with sharing their cynical humour about their love for each other)

Now you’ve had your laugh, go out and spread the love by hugging your ‘Gus’… for no other reason than …. just because, and help me change the world

luv’n huggz
