Tuesday, I decided to clean the house from top to bottom - I just couldn't stand the muddles any more! By the time the children finished school, the house was immaculate and we had a new and efficient filing system. Strange how having things organised makes you feel better, isn't it? The human mind is indeed a strange and wonderful thing.
Wednesday was spent filling the cupboards and the freezer - strangely enough, my family insist on being fed at least 3 times a day, every day!!
Thursday and Friday were spent recovering from all the activity at the beginning of the week!!!
Yesterday, Saturday, we took a trip to Fishguard for a scrapbooking demonstration - I had a brilliant time, met some lovely people and had a good giggle as well - not a bad way to spend a morning. It's so great to be able to spend time with people who share your passions. I've not yet met any crafters who stick rigidly to one particular craft - many of the ones I've met do lots of cross-over crafts. I was so inspired by the mornings demo, that I completed 3 8x8 pages when I got home - I have to admit to being seriously pleased with the end results. Although I didn't really learn any new techniques etc at the demo, it did give me the confidence to just get on and do it! It's odd how daunting a blank piece of paper can be...I really must stop buying stash, though, and start using what I have. Every time I sort out my craft stuff, I find stuff I'd forgotten I had - some of which I know I'm never going to use, so I'm going to have to decide whether to sell it, or to swap it for stuff I will use, my particular passions at the moment being chipboard embellishments and ribbons - you would not believe the range of ribbons and fibres that are available - they are, though, highly addictive. I know for a fact that I'm not the only person in the world to sit and stroke my stash of ribbons and fibres - strange people us crafters!
Well, I did warn you that this was going to be a ramble, but I think enough is enough! I have been crafting, just haven't taken pics of the results yet, but will do so over the next few days and will share them with you.
Bye for now. xxx
