Archive for November, 2013
Wow – it’s the last day of November…I just don’t know where the month went. My last 3 months have been busy busy busy – as it’s our busy time at work. There have been long busy frantic days and late nights and catch up around home weekends – but it’s finally done. Funny how at this time of year – beginning of December most people start to get frantically busy and I (and the others I work with) do the opposite….we’ve done busy – now we go into slow down mode. It’s nice!
So I realise that I have not posted anything during November…..and thought I would make use of: a). having got out of bed early. b). it’s Saturday. c). the last day of November. and post a cards and things I have done during November.
So first up…….Just Add Ink # 193 Inspiration Challenge
This week we have an Inspiration Challenge from Kim. It’s perfect for getting inspiration for your Christmas projects (although that’s not what I did LOL). This is the Inspiration Picture:
Here is my card:
As you can see – it’s kinda not Christmasy – but Stars are so versatile like that! I was watching the final of Dancing with the Stars when I made it – so my colour inspiration and glitter came from the costumes which are always beautiful.
The Just Add Ink Design Team were all “STAR” struck this week and have put together some beautiful inspirational projects. So go check them out at Just Add Ink and add your project too.
Swan View Show
The other fun fun thing I did during November was enter some of my craft things in the Swan View Show. I have kinda been working on this on an off during the year. The show is just a little show and it’s just fun to do something within the Community.
I did pretty well and won a few prizes. Here are some pics……(some are a bit fuzzy cause I just did it quickly on my phone – but you’ll get the idea).
My knitted fruit got First Prize…..this was such a cute project and purely just fun fun fun. LOL Crack up!
Third for my little Mozic.
An assortment of prizes for and assortment of 3D projects.
Even prizes for Scrapbooking – Huh!
And a couple of card prizes too.
And one for my knitted coat hanger. Hee hee
And this is the one I was most chuffed with – cause it was my first real go at Crocheting.
I also won the overall Handcraft Prize from the show – so that was extra fun.
Oh and by the way – even though I was busy I did manage to stop and smell the roses. Well not literally……instead I enjoyed the Jacaranda trees that have been in bloom across Perth. I really should take a pic of them….cause they are magnificent.
