Good morning fellow bloggers, how are you this fair morning and how fair my Rockettes?
It's a cold and chilly morning and today brings the need to stay in for a delivery grrrrr, packing grrrrrrrrrrrr but this leads to time away from tomorrow hurray!!!!!!!
So what kind of week have you had because it's
Evening craft sessions, I'm on with a few things this week, managed a few 12 x 12 layouts, managed to finish a mini book, managed the start of the altered clipboards. Clipboards purchased from Staples at a cost of £2.99 each, they are 'normal' sized and are just a hard board backing. Up to now I've covered them in paper and inked or painted the edges. Said 11 year old has selected which one for which teacher, now I need to tart them up a bit with ribbon and names on them, think I'm going to go for die-cut name on these, although did give said 11 year old the opportunity of a stamped name. Might do a couple of post it note holders to add to the 'gift' to finish it off - but not sure yet and haven't ever made those so they should prove interesting! I'll take photos once completed. I'm using up paper from the many many paper stacks I have lurking around, using papers that I couldn't quite honestly ever see me using!
I know I mentioned an age ago - my niece making myself and said 11 year old some awesome birthday cards, but then I forgot to share them - so here they are.
Said 11 year olds
Next up is Carmen's Secret Santa, now I'm giggling because I have a feeling that by the time we are done, it might not be as 'secret' as we hoped, the reason behind this, well quite a few of us that have signed up have well known 'styles' so I'm wondering how many of us are going to work out who has 'sent' to us! LOL but if it gets me in the Christmas spirit during November and provides a gift for an amazing person then that can only be a good thing!
Right me thinks that might have to do you this week but I'm liking that as a list overall aren't you?
Crafting wise, well I've still not got around to photographing anything recently so still dragging things out of the blog folder that have been there 'forever' a photo from our foreign holiday about three years ago!
Mr Linky below, I'll prepare a post in advance for next week but there will be no linky on that one, so don't forget to leave your comments and I'll try and publish them as I go next week!
