Apols for my absence last week, it is all a bit hectic here at the moment...I am currently busy applying for jobs where I work as we are being restructured so my job as it is now won't exist anymore. Thankfully the process will be completed in a couple of weeks so that particular stress will be over.
I've managed to get a bit of crafting done though, mainly spurred on by my mammoth haul from the Great Northern Papercraft Extravaganza at the weekend! I just had to get playing with all the glittery sparkly stuff I had bought so I've made a start on my Christmas cards. I'm thinking the purple glitter on the black background is perhaps a little bit dark though?! Will have to brighten this one with some gems I think and maybe just use the lighter glitter for the next one.
There is blooming glitter all over the place, oops! I am wanting to make a card for a challenge and worthwhile cause as well over at Cowgirl's sunday stamp'en christmas cards for soldiers but the instructions say no glitter as this could put soilders lives at risk! So I've wiped all the glitter away and will leave it a few days to make sure any stray bits have gone. I wouldn't want a soilder leaving a trail of glitter behind him in Afghanistan or anything, eek!
For the person who asked me a couple of weeks ago where my paper trimmer is from (sorry can't recall who asked) it is a Crafters Companion one. It has 4 different blades - straight, wavy, perforating and a scorer. I got it as a free gift with a magazine subscription and it has been very good - had it about 6 months now and no problems.
Hope to get round a few more desks this week, I don't know how those who get round all of them manage though as I usually only manage about a third. I'm varying it each week, i.e. numbers 1-35 one week, then 36+ the next week etc, so I will get to you eventually!
