Just a little bit of crafting!


Life is quite slow going at the moment, which for me is most frustrating !
However, each day gets better and this week I have managed to work on some altered clipboards for the V&H Fair!!



My production line is slower than usual but they have turned out ok.
Oh how I wish I'd bought more of that wonderful Daisy Ds 'vintage look' scrapbook paper, last year...as now it seems to be so hard to find!



I've also used a few items from the range ' Swell Noel ' by K&Company.


And did you spot the books?
Incredibly, I won this book on ebay for 25p!
It's a companion to the book which I won last year.
They are not new books but I love searching for slightly older craft books and these have oodles of ideas...ideas which are simple and you can build on that simplicity and improvise.

I really don't like doing the 'C' stuff quite so early but needs must!
And so now I need to hunt for the rest of my Christmas books.
***
As for the weekend...
I'm going to be reunited with my favourite place, which begins with 'E' and ends with 'R' and has an 'X' in it!
I hope I can remember my way around!
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend too!
;-)

Hi Sal,
Good to switch on and see a post from you. Hope you're taking it easy... Remarkably, I've been working on xmas stockings this week. Although xmas still seems miles away, the Fair doesn't! I went to TK Maxx today and they had a lot of lovely scrapbooking stuff. Not sure if you have one near you, in the place with the E, R and X maybe?!
Love Hen xxx

Enjoy Exeter - and if you get foot weary you can always go and have a quiet sit in the minster.

I hear you Sal, I've done nothing this week as Twiglet and I still have the lurgy. Hope you're soon feeling a bit more chipper. I love your clipboards, just lovely. Have a great weekend and take good care of yourself.

Hello Sal !
j'aime beaucoup tes cartes de scrap, les couleurs sont lumineuses.
I like the town of Exeter too, I've happy memories of the days we spent there (and all around in Devon) few years ago !
Have a very nice week-end +++

I've just been perusing the first book in that series - I bought it years ago in a Charity Shop! I think it gost more than 25p, though...

I shall wait to see what you make from it, Sal! Take your time to get better.

I did my P.G.C.C in Exeter and lived there for a year, small world isn't it?

Hello Sal

Good to see some of your lovely work again. It must feel good to get back in to the swing of things again.

The clipboards look wonderfully festive!

I hope you enjoyed your day out in Exeter.

Hi Sal
I am pleased to hear that you are feeling a bit better; I had been wondering where you had dissappeared to so it is lovely to hear from you again! x

GenerallyGemma said...

Oh you put me to shame! I really have to start thinking about Christmas and SOON!

Ally Johnston said...

Only ten weeks til Christmas, it must be time to start thinking about it. Love the things you've produced already. I'll start with a To-Do list. It's a start at least.

Hi Sal,

It looks like Santa's workshop is in full production ~

Happy Crafting
