For those of us in the Northern half of the world the dark nights are totally upon us - it's virtually dark by 4pm on wet days - oh and boy did it pour all weekend !
Never mind it was nice just to huddled up in the house !
On Saturday I had a lovely quite afternoon with my new crafty goodies whilst DH was off watching football in the lashing rain & with hail stones thrown in !
Then on Sunday we were happy "cwtch up" (as they say here in Wales !!) together & watch the episode of Strictly Come dancing we had recorded - whilst the rain pounded on the windows !
On my desk this week are a mixture of things - from projects ready to take to Scrap Club tomorrow night to some new extra long plates from my Cuttlebug & some leafy dies ..
I have bought some 13" plates & some long dies - they are Sizzix & I am trying to get them to cut through my Bug - I am not getting a great cut - so I think I need to play with some shamming layers - any advice very welcome !!
My first idea are to scrap "My Life Right Now" - we often scrap our holidays, big events & our friends & families - but I think in years to come it will be fascinating to look back on the everyday things - our handbags, our shampoo, our lunch, our favourite TV programme, the book we are reading - in fact just snippets of our daily lives - I hope to do one each year & it will be fun to compare them !!
Then I have a couple of ideas for mini tag books - I have played with making one from a single 12"x 12" sheet of paper - but it was a bit small - so I messed about with one from made from 2 sheets. Lets see if the rest of the girls fancy my ideas !!
This week I have delved back into my Wellington Bear card making stash & whipped up a card for my nephew ...
And last but not least I have been layering up the decoupage pieces from the new Art Deco Docrafts kit I bought on Saturday (went in for Nordic Christmas stash but got lured in my this !!) - I'm not sure if my card making skills are up to using these - but I am taking the kit to Club tomorrow in the hope of some advice ! So any tips or ideas you have for me would be much appreciated !!
Take care & have a great crafty week - hope I may see some of you at the NEC Hobbycrafts show on Saturday ?
