Sunday evening already…boo. I really do think it’s about time weekends were three days long. I’m only just getting into my stride by Sunday afternoon. Now it’s time to pack up and make things tidy again. But I have had a relatively successful day of card-making. I wasn’t really in the mood to make Christmas cards but I persevered and made a handful that I’m happy with. It’s a start anyway! I had lots of other things I wanted to do today (paper-clay, embroidery, ironing…wait, that last one snuck in – as if I’d want to do ironing! Pfft!) but the day progressed very quickly (it has nothing to do with the fact I got up late either, I’m sure) and I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked. But something is better than nothing so the day wasn’t a total loss. I also got lots of ideas (mostly about uses for buttons!) while I was crafting so I am hoping to make a few new things
in the week, if my ideas can translate into an actual, do-able thing.
So, here’s a selection of the cards I made today. I stuck with a general colour scheme and that way I had all the papers that I needed and matching ribbons etc. The little crocheted flowers are from my cousin, who kindly posted me a little parcel last week filled with flowers.
I can’t crochet so I am very grateful for these cute embellishments that go so well with a lot of things.
I like the “Noel” card the best – it was the first one I made in the morning and the one I was happiest with for the day. The button baubles one is ok – just very simple. Just thought I would try a quicker one and use up some of those odd buttons I have. I have lots of vintage buttons so I am thinking I am going to sell them at my stall too, on pretty button cards. they make a nice gift for someone who is into sewing or other crafts. If nothing else, they look good just displayed in a basket or dish, I think.
So, packing up time now – worst part of the day! I need to get some dinner on too (I’m making roasted capsicum soup – yum!) and think about sorting out my clothes for the morning. Hope your weekend has been fun and relaxing, fulfilling and restful 🙂
