Sorry about the absence ...

I can't believe it's been so long since I blogged!!! The past month has been quite stressful and on top of that I  came down with a bad head cold which I find very annoying, I really hate getting sick and don't very often so  it really puts me out when I do.

Some of the most recent things I've been making are for swaps or challenges and there are a couple that were just for pleasure too :) Here's a couple, the first is an Egg Carton I  made for a swap I'm doing and I was particularly pleased with how it turned out, very shabby!! It's just waiting to be filled with goodies to send :)

And this little grouping are my most recent, they are a gift for a lovely friend and I used the Kaisercraft 'Timeless' papers. These are also my projects for the Creative Team for Mad About Scrappin.

I made a trinket/lace storage box, tag and quote book but I'd like to put some pictures here of the inside of the book because I'm very happy with how it turned out :)

You can find these and all my other project in video form on my YouTube Channel HERE as I don't always remember to take photos of the things I make and most of the time they are for other people so get mailed off, I'm on a mission to make something for myself this month, I'm going to try my hand at a fabric/lace book/journal, I've wanted to make one of these for a while now and have been collecting fabric and lace, so that will be an exciting learning experience for me.

Have a lovely day and thank you for taking the time to stop by :)

  1. Hi Jeanette
    Great idea with the egg carton! Love your little quote book! You have used some similar type images as I have used in a new lace book.
    So where did you find such beautiful Victorian images!
    You create such beautiful work!
    Have a great week!
