Where did the time go?

Blimey - shut my eyes for a few minutes and suddenly its February, well actually its almost March! Where did the last few weeks go ? In between feeling sick all day and very, very tired, I have managed to do some crafting - but not as much as I would have liked to! In the last week, I've spent 4 days in hospital with Hyperemesis due to the pregnancy - not the best place to spend my birthday!!!

So what have I managed to do in the last month and a bit???

An Advanced Metal Art Workshop over at Artist Trading Post, taught by the very talented Anneliese Bates. We created 2 mini canvas using the Ten Second Studio materials & tools. Freehand houses for one, stamped images & punches for the other. Colour was added using Ranger Alcohol Inks.

Then using a border mould, we created a bookmark. Once the metal work was finished, we wrapped it round some grungeboard and added some patterned paper on the reverse. Its such a therapeutic craft!

Even managed to create some layouts - 2 for challenges and 2 at a crop! With a mini book completed and a CJ for ScrapaGoGo, that has been as crafty as I've got! Hopefully once the sleepy and sickness stage have passed, I'll be back to my normal craftiness!


  1. Sorry - what do you mean "back to your normal craftiness" You've done more in the last few weeks than I have and I'm on 2 DT's and have crop class kits and samples to do as well the gogo CJ. I clearly don't craft enough!

    Hope the yuk eases up soon. We've missed you! (yeah - honest) LOL.

  2. Wow! you may not have produced loads of things Ally but the things you have produced are gorgeous, really love those metal work houses and you LO's are fabulous! Well done you xxx

  3. Lovely lo's Ally, hope the sickness stops soon and you start to feel better, and good luck for you scan, ill be thinking about you!

  4. Love the layouts Ally gorgeous, and the metal flowers are fab. Mj x
