However, I have made a little progress this week, in various ways.
But first: When I looked up from my desk this morning, this is what I saw -
I said "Hello, what are you doing, up there?"
"Hello. I'm peeping...."
"Peeping at what?"
"At you. What are you doing?"
"Reading my mail"
"So I know what's going on. Why are you peeping?"
"So I know what's going on. What are you doing now?"
"Looking for my camera."
"So I can take your picture..." *Click*
"Oh! Why did you do that?"
"So I can show you to all my blogging friends. You look so sweet, peeping down at me, little Peeping Puppy!"
I mean, really, who could resist that face? I shall have to sell him soon, or I'll end up keeping him!
Hmm, looks a bit odd actually. I think it's because it was taken from a strange angle.
Anyway, you may notice I have used no fewer than 14 Brads on this one card. Not to mention the various fabric flowers I've been hoarding, also the papers I printed off last year (Kirsty Wiseman's fabby "Patti Picklicious" CD) and some mauve ribbon I bought about 2 years ago because I liked the leaf design, and a bit of purple ribbon that came wrapped round a birthday cake or something... and some spare art paper I have had for at least a year...
I did not use a single thing that I bought more recently than a year ago! I'm pleased with myself about this.. I've been trying not to buy stash (unless it's for a paid piece of work). Besides, like most of us, I have loads (and loads, and loads...) of stuff already.
Something From almost Nothing, Day 1 - Success!
And another success, is that I do have the commission, to make another Baby book, similar to the one I made for my niece. The lady who wants it has chosen her papers, from a vast array I offered her (see my "Papers" page link on the right!!). This morning I went out to the local scrapbook shop, to buy the pale pink cardstock needed for the pages. I got a couple of lengths of ribbon too, as I wanted some that complements the papers nicely. I'm going to get started on cutting the card for pages this evening, then the fun begins!
Off to do some Work! Bye All...
Ah, before I forget... if you're one of the various Blogging folks who've been thinking/talking about/doing a Journal or Art Journal recently, take a quick look at this post on Useful Books' Blog.
