Getting Back to Normal...


when I say normal I mean getting back to crafting, it seems ages since I've done any proper crafting though I must admit after the craft fayres & business of Christmas & New Year I just haven't had the time & it has been quite nice to have a break, I'm now really starting to miss it though so hopefully I can fit a lot more crafting in than of late :D  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & New Year.


I'm not quite back to normal cos I am late getting my DT project in for Di's Digi Challenge which started yesterday (I keep losing track of time/dates lol)  & it was a tricky one for me "Try Something New" cos I've been crafting what seems like forever I have tried most things that I fancied but I have made a little hand sewn book with some gorgeous My Minds Eye double sided papers & I used Di's "Izzy With Little Bird" coloured image (yes coloured, did you know Di also does coloured images? Perfect if like me you're often short of time).  I finished the book with a punched border, lace, buttons & stamped sentiment.  I also made a matching bookmark as I liked the papers so much :)  I hope you can join us & our fabulous sponsor is Crafty Sentiments.

What a sweet little book you created! I am so glad things are getting back to normal for you. I am sure even moreso now since it has been a few weeks ;) We are trying to here as well. Our first week of school started this past Monday... and boy was it hard getting the kids to sit and do their work! Boy was it hard for me to make them! HA!!!


Thank you for playing along at our Freshly Brewed Challenge for Jan.,
I hope to see you at the hop this weekend!
