Calling at the Inspiration Station

We're having a lovely bright, if chilly day here - quite a surprise really as it absolutely threw down during the night and looked this morning as though it would be staying damp and miserable for the whole day!

I've been trying to get on top of my crafting this week - not actually succeeding, but there you go!
To those who've been asking about my finger injury - thank you so much for your concern and messages about other similar "self-inflicted" injuries, it's a relief to know I'm not the only one to do stupid things like that lol. My finger is healing really well and only hurts if I bash it by accident, or when I push on the cut bit too hard. It's still got a little dressing on, so that it stays clean and also so that I remember to be careful.

As it's Thursday today it's my turn to add one of my Bubbly Funk kit projects to the emag. Although not difficult, this project turned out to be quite lengthy so I've divided it into two parts and the second will be on Bubbly Scrumptious next Thursday.

Unfortunately, if you haven't already got your January "Simply Stated" kit, then you're just toooooo late as it sold out ages ago. Never mind eh? you can still toddle off to the emag and see what you missed hehehe

My project is a wallet which will provide a storage place for the mounds of clippings I make when I'm sorting through that huge stack of craft magazines that accumulate on the coffee table (I really don’t know how they get there, you know!). This week I'm showing how to make the humble large paper bags that came in the kit into the basic filing wallet. Next week I'll show the photos of what I did to make it a crafty "Inspiration Station!"

Hope you like the look of this one - you can see this article and lots, lots, lots more fabby projects, tutorials and ideas HERE

Right, now I've got to get back to working on the February kit! Oh it's a hard life.......
