I have been quite busy these last couple of months, despite my absence from the blog world, and I have a lot of posts to catch up on. I have created for friends, family and myself alike, and have had a ball of a time doing it! In amongst crafting, I also wrote end of year exams in November ( I am currently in my second year of my BCompt Management Accounting Degree), passing all my subjects, and spent a lot of quality time with family. And let me not forget to mention, the major clean up of my craft space, or the remodelling of our bedroom. So you see, I have much to blog about! Let's hope I won't be lazy and leave things out... Besides all of that, I am sure that this year is going to be an abundance of memories waiting to happen.
Today though, I have a card to share, as the photo's were the easiest to edit amongst the hundreds of others I took :) LOL's!
I used a new technique (for me anyway), and used my Singer (sewing machine for those who don't know yet that I purchased one) on paper for the first time. I must admit it was quite an experience and I was quite nervous about it at first. Many thoughts ran through my head, from how to make the ends look neat, to how this was going to blunt my machine's needle. Well, I sort of got the ends to look neat, and the needle isn't blunt yet, and trust me, I've used it on many a project besides material since. I have also realised that it is easier to choose one colour and go with it on almost every project without swopping the thread out because let's face it, who wants to rethread a sewing machine five or more times a day?
The stamp is from an Angel Company set (B, I can never thank you enough for it) and all of the paper is from my scrappy stash, which is thankfully a lot more organised since my big clean and purge a couple of weeks ago.
Thank you all for being patient with my random posts last year, and my lack of appearances in the cyber world. I hope to turn that around this year and I can't wait to write my next post :) Until then, have a wonderful day!
