My Crafty Corner

Ok, so it turns out that the flat I live in is far to small for all of my crafty obsessions and creations, and I have therefore spread them out on the massive crafty table that is the internet, this is My Corner.
Generally speaking everything I make is to be given away - even if I don't want to - but now at least I can keep them on here.

So I have finally finished my super slow progress creation - it turns out that once I got started it only took a few hours to do, but it seemed to take me forever to get started :)

It was originally supposed to have been a Xmas present, but then I got busy doing other presents, cards etc so unfortunately it got bumped back, but seeing as the intended recipients birthday is only a week or so away I thought I aught to get it done.

So here it is:

He is supposed to be a Dalek, and I think he's great - although he looks slightly like an overstuffed penguin :)

Anyway TTFN

Brother No.1

So today is my first brother's birthday - I don't get to speak to him often but managed to have a text chat whilst I was on my way home this evening. I have managed to lose his address again, so sent his card to my folks to pass on. He is popping around to visit them tonight and my Dad was in charge of picking up a cake. I told my bro that he will have forgotten and not to get is hopes up, but he was adamant that Dad's love of cake will override his general forgetfulness and there will be cake. I rang the old's when I got home to check in - Dad answered - and low and behold he has forgotten the cake and is now ringing my brother to tell him to pick one up on his way round :) LOL!
Still at least he will have my card when he gets there :)

I found these guys on line and I think they are great - I got the whole family which form a band but just used these two this time. They are body tots from the digi doodle shop, who also have loads of other cool images, and even do freebies.

Anyway much more crafting to do - and dinner to eat

Manic Scraps

So it appears that March has more birthdays in it than I had originally anticipated, they just keep cropping up!

Anyway with that in mind I have been manically crafting to get the first lot ready, and make a start on the rest of the month, not to mention mothers day is just around the corner and I seem to be gaining mothers :)

This week I start a new job - yay me, but sadly means I have to temporarily have to leave my voluntary job with the Horniman Museum, and as I now wont see her on her birthday had to quickly make a birthday card for one of the girls.

The image is Penny Black's 3100K Green Line, and the backing papers from the scraps - one of which I know is funky Hand, but not sure about the other. It seems that I have almost used all of my green scraps - but not to worry I am sure I will be making some more soon, I need them to join in with Jules Snippet challenge :) Anyway over all not too bad for a ten minute make at ridiculous o'clock in the morning.
