Morning Deskers. Well that was a busy week, a fantastic family get together on Saturday but a lazy Sunday and Monday pottering in my craft room. My desk this week is not so much one photo as a pictorial walk through of what I have been up to the last few days. As usual when I don't have much I need to do and even less brain power, pottering becomes re-organising...... I have recently been gifted a set of large punches (I can't say no, it's a disease) but they have been wandering around the craft room in a huge box getting in my way and generally irritating me.To make space I decided to go through my shoebox sized 'scrap' box which was getting out of hand, hasn't been touched for ages and frankly I surprised myself - I was ruthless. There were 3 choices - do I really love it?/Can it be cut into a useful size square?/Why don't I just bin it? Well the bin has long since been emptied as it was rather full, the second became this:
So my current challenge is to do something with the bits I just couldn't throw away. (I have an irrational attachment to paper, one of my many craft related psychological issues. I'm dealing - self knowledge is half the battle), If they haven't been used by the time I go on holiday next week they too will be destined for the square box or, more likely, the bin.
Win Win. So I carried on.Craft club last week was a little chaotic as when we arrived the pub was closed. Apparently they didn't feel able to let us know they have had a change of hours and now don't open until 12. Planned refurbishment has been cancelled for the third time and things are looking bleak for my local. (It's a really old building and at the moment several bits of it are being held up by iron posts - I can see them letting it just fall down so they can sell the land and build EVEN MORE flats. So sad). Anyhow, that has effectively put paid to us meeting there, especially as the currently landlady is leaving, so I am on the hunt for a new venue. We started rather late due to all the kerfuffle but still managed to make some shaker cards.
Have a good week, love n hugs Cindy xx
