Did think about naming this 'Billy NO Mates' as I know friends have had problems signing up to follow; so hence I don't have many followers. If anyone knows how to sort this out please let me know. Anyway...
I have been crafting - just haven't uploaded much recently, so here's a catch-up. Warmer weather seems to have a positive effect on my energy levels and that 'get up and go' feeling, that I normally lack. So I have been out to the shops; Simon has taken me, to the Range last week and Homebase this. What I gain in one hand, is taken from another, my speech and thinking has been worse - I suppose my body is using energy to give me oomph! rather than hold a conversation and talk. Anyway, I have managed to, slowly, get a few things done. Craft room has been literally turned around and I hope I can get some small narrow shelves up, so that I can see my embellishments, ribbons, etc rather than have everything packed away in boxes. Out of sight means that I don't remember or can't easily colour co-ordinate etc, so this is something I have been after for many years.
Here are some of the projects that I have been doing in the last couple of weeks;
|card used as example for sketch challenge in Trimcraft Forum, Magnolia Stam, coloured with Copics, Card and backing paper from Summer Breeze, First Editions.|
