Welcome to the Waffle Isolation Ward.
We've been poorly with the flu/cold thing that seems to be doing the rounds - both of us feeling wretched at the same time makes for an interesting few days. Today Hubby has just left for work (left here at 10am) and is planning on just working half a day - but it's the half in the middle iykwim!.
We've visitors coming for the weekend and I've done nothing in the house for the last few days so hopefully today I can at least get the guest room ready, I'll feel better knowing that at least is done.
I've managed a bit of crafting - but only in little spurts and one of the projects I've been doing has bee more complicated than I thought - so trying to keep my wits about me while feeling grotty has been a bit of a struggle, I can tell you!
I planned to show another of the thimgs I made for my Charmed Cards and Crafts Guest Designer spot at the beginning of the week, but with everything else I just didn't get round to it.
This is the Christmas mini-album I've made using as many of the gorgeous K&Co Swell Noel goodies as I could throw at it! Karen sent a huge parcel filled with such a lot of loveliness that I just HAD to get as much into my projects as I could manage!
The book has spaces all ready for the photos to be added, and I've used the matching tags as extra mini pages for journalling or more little photos to be included.
This is one of the pages, but if you'd like to see more then you can see the whole book here
Check out the other fab projects shown by the CCC design team while you're there - there are some amazing things to be found there! And it goes without saying that the shop is filled with wonderful crafting temptation
The page hiding under the tag is my fave in the book.
You know how sometimes things go so right that you amaze yourself?
Well I had one of those (very rare) moments with this baubles page! The baubles are just circles punched from regular white card - the idea being that a tiny photo can be added to each. I used shades of Cats Eye chalk inks to add some colour and for some reason the baubles have taken on such a realistic look that I can hardly believe it.
I'm soooo useless at colouring in that when something like this happens I'm quite shocked! Can you tell? lol
I've still got some more things to share on here but I'll save those for next time.
I hope everyone is keeping clear of all the wintry germs that are hurtling around - I wore a surgical mask while writing this so if you do have a cold, then you can't blame me - Okay?
