Origami baby shoe

I made this from velum 😄

Been busy day trying out different cuts on my e-craft machine - just need to assemble them so I can post them in my Docraft gallery. Feel like I've not stopped yet not got anything to show for it - Dogs have been going crazy in the snow, loving it and not wanting to come in lol. The little on is finding it hard now as the snow is so deep he has to walk in the path way the big one has made - so funny to watch them. I've been playing about with origami again today also, and using different types of papers to see how they work = some good and some not so good - hahaha.

Sunday, 13 January 2013

Saturday was a good day, got my T-shirt from Crafters Companion, my new grey top for my e-crafter machine, which has made such a difference to my cutting files. I received my freebies from Craft Bob, which are great, another CD with lots of inspirational stuff, Beatrix Potter prints and some really lovely old fashioned toppers, well pleased. Today now being Sunday brought me my Debbie Moore Bookazine, which is full of inspirational Art Deco stuff - love it. I think now its time to actually sit and make some things lol.

Today is Friday and I'm so excited as I have received all my goodies from Pandoru - wohoo - its like Christmas all over again. I ordered 3 goody boxes, one for general craft, one for sewing and knitting and the other paper crafting/scrap-booking. I didn't know what I would be getting just the items would be related to the type of craft, and I wasn't disappointed. Each box cost me on ave £9.75 and they were well worth the money. The items are unusual and not what we can get in the UK, which is why I like Panduro. I also bought 10 Metres of Tilda fabric for £29.99, which is fantastic and cant wait to get started. So much to choose from - ooooooo dilemas hahhahah.
What was in the three boxes?? The white box is actually a storage box for 12x12 paper/card and it came with stock inside - its great : ). You still can't see the full extent of what is there as there are small craft kits, jewelry kits, fabric, embroidery prints, wool, three bags of wooden coloured beads, paint, varnish, brads, ribbon,peel offs threads, glue, glitters, embellishments,polystyrene shapes, moulds and loads more, I do believe I got my moneys worth and more. This is the Tilda fabric I bought.

Today Ive been tinkering with Origami and have made a heart box and a butterfly, however as with all first projects they are a bit rough around the edges so need to take my time. Will post pictures as soon as I have perfected them lol.

The day started well watched create and craft and got some brill tips off Leann for ecraft machine and I spent a couple of hours cutting some intricate designs - then sat at computer got a message off cousin on Facebook to say he won on an auction site and to try it out - got ripped off for £ 40 and nothing to show for it x lesson learned 😳

cough cough go away come back never lol

Well I'm into Monday morning now and this cough is so irritating, wish it would go away. My wonderful husband put together my new work station this afternoon, so I have been rearranging my room so I can do my crafting more ergonomically plus I now have another work top ((big smile)). I am so looking forward to Create and Craft today as Ive been having a few cutting issues with my craft machine and im hoping they will be giving some tips on how to correct them. I am so spoilt and I have lots of craft things to use, I cant decide what to do first. However, I do know that I have to try to stop buying for a while and use up some of the stock I have ----oooooooo but its soooooo hard as there are so many nice things. I'm sure you all know what I mean lol.

Saturday, 5 January 2013

Today I am slightly under the weather with a cold and sore throat, never the less I have taken comfort in watching one of my favourite shows - Create and Craft .

I have persisted in trying to put pictures of my cards on to my members gallery at Docrafts but haven't succeeded yet, so will have to ask for some assistance :) .
