I do have a couple of excuses for my lack of posts, one recent one being I have been very sick with a stomach virus that lasted no less than 8 full days !!! sure don't want that one again in a hurry.
But I have managed to make a few cards and they are:-
This Butterfly is actually a chipboard die cut that I painted with silver metallic paint and then whilst still wet I sprinkled it with silver glitter.
The next few cards are slightly out of focus - my only excuse it that they were made whilst I was sick and my hands must have been very shaky when I was holding the camera LOL
I was commenting on FB the other day on the wonderful work a fellow crafter was doing in her latest craze of dressmaking and I remembered I used to do that too and make quite a few things myself in the past. In fact it got me thinking of all the things I can do or have done in the past i.e.:-
Altering Items such as frames
No Longer Do :-
Paining (walls etc)
TBH I don't do much Scrapbooking anymore either - I really enjoyed it but don't have anyone to pass them all on to. I would do a lot more baking too if I had someone other than me & my other half to bake for. That is the main reason I gave up the cake decorating years ago too, not that I got very far with it but it was passable. Most of the other things on the second list I don't do anymore due to my arthritis.
Mind you in the past I have also, knocked down walls, pulled out window frames, chipped of pebble dash & plaster. I also did a bit of steel fixing when we renovated our old house. I painted walls and ceilings plus varnished all the timber work in the house. And previous to that I put our flat packed kitchen units together and laid lino in our bathroom LOL Those were the days when I could almost do anything I put my hand too.
Oh yes I also build my own computer too !!!
That's enough from me to be getting on with I think. Happy February 2016
