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!
