Thank You to Rinda,
who sent me two lovely Tim Holz-inspired Tags, from her giveaway over Christmas time! They arrived in the post yesterday, with a very pretty little card and a nice message. I haven't photographed them yet (sorry!), but I wanted to let Rinda know they arrived safely and that I Love Them!
The middle tag of these three, is one of those Rinda sent me - lovely, isn't it?! I will try to photograph them tomorrow and post a "proper" picture of both tags and the lovely card!
Also, I have been busy working on more books for my Etsy shop. I finished this today and managed to get it photographed and posted.
The new white photo-cube is great, because I can use it to get reasonable pictures using artificial light. The photos are a bit soft-looking, but they are quite crisp and in focus, with fairly good colours, so I'm happy with them. I may be able to get better pictures tomorrow, in natural light (especially if it snows again tonight!), but after the listing on Friday, I thought I would just post the book in the shop and see what happens. It has already had 23 views and it had one "heart" within the first 5 viewings. I can't complain about that... who knows, it may sell overnight!
The rest of the weekend has been sorting out the house, and stuff for D's new job, which he starts tomorrow. We took down the Christmas decorations (late, but we have had other stuff to do, honest!!), packed it all up and hauled the boxes back into the loft til next December. We sorted out some clothes that we had stored in a suitcase and stuffed in the loft - I had wondered where my sweaters had all gone to! We found D's nice warm boots, with grippy soles and fleece lining - he'll need those for getting to work!
All in all, it's been a busy sort of weekend. I hope we might manage to re-start our house project next weekend. There is still so much to sort out, put away, move from one room to another, assemble etc etc. It would be nice to get back to it, as Christmas stopped us in our tracks and we have lost our momentum now.
Anyway, that's it really. I hope all my blog friends have had good weekends, with no problems from snowy or otherwise horrible weather.
Must go - nearly bed time and I have to be up and about early tomorrow (I hate Monday mornings!).
