Can hardly believe it is 2012, seems only a year or so ago we were getting ready for the new millenium. My theory is that someone has pressed the fast-forward button by mistake. Maybe it's Julia at The Stamping Ground, the lovely lady who organises this hop around the crafting desks of the world, if so Julia, can you push the 'pause' button now please.
Christmas decorations back up in the loft and still not fully back into crafting but I have made a start and am getting ready for Vicky Stampers get together on Saturday by cutting all my greyboard pieces to size. Made a bit of a boob when I measured them as two were a bit short - someone must have shortened my ruler - so had to re-do those.
The scrapbook papers at the back right are for the project as well. The greeny-purply book at the back is my the newly done cover of my art journal and the tin at the front is full of stuff, want to see inside? Of course you do.
It's a treasure chest, well almost, it's full of broken jewellery and a gift from my sister. If you read my 'New Year' post you will know that she fell over the vacuum cleaner on New Years Eve and fractured her elbow and badly bruised her shin. Luckily she only lives 5 mins drive away and her daughter lives even closer (just round the corner) so she is getting a lot of help.
I went round yesterday to help her get dressed , do a few jobs and keep her company and we were talking about craft and recycling and out came this tin from the back of the cupboard. Goodness knows what she was saving it for but I'm glad she did. There are three broken watches for stripping down and I am going to make a mould with the massive brown 'rope' earring at the top of the tin. There were even two eye-shadow pencils in there as a bonus.
I'm going round today as well and probably Friday so will not get much time to craft this week, could be worse, could be me (only joking). At least Sorrel is fully recovered, eating well and full of beans but she doesn't like the windy weather.
Happy 2012 everyone, hope it's a good one for you.
