Monday, Monday

What a day!   The more I tried to get done the less I seemed to achieve.   Had to get mum to the dentist, that was like a major operation,  then because she is on so much medication the dentist was wary about what treatment she could give,  came away with a long list of instructions.

I did at least manage to get my essay finished, and printed,  but too late for the post.  Wanted to get loads done today as tomorrow I would like to sort out my stash,  there is too much lying around gathering dust. Must be the fact that there spring is around the corner,  feel the need to clean and tidy. 

Did manage some crafting yesterday.  I made two more pages for my Altered Art book.  It is a very personal theme,  my journey from my lowest moment to the present day,  2008 has to have been the worst year of my life,  so the book will chronicle the major points of the journey I've taken.  It is very satisfying,   I'm finding this type of crafting much more enjoyable than card making.   I made use of some TH stuff, the barbed wire mask,  the man with umbrella and the disc,  upside down bird is a clarity stamp,  and lamp post from the Portobello Rd collection.   The wording was printed onto a clear label,  the 'clouds' behind were a happy accident, as I made a mistake with the first sticker, so peeled it off,  of course some of the card came away,  I was about to start again when I realised what a nice effect I'd got!   Just one more 'sad' page,  which will be emotional to make. 

I also got my new business under way on Saturday,  we did our first MBS fair,  just a small local affair,  but a good place to dip our toes into the water.  Everyone was so friendly,  we felt like we were joining a community.    I hadn't realised that along with the stall the organisers were also going to keep us fed and watered, so we had tea on tap and a buffet lunch which went down a treat, I was starving by lunchtime.  It was good to make our first sale, even if it was only £1.25!  But things picked up after lunch.   The time flew by,   suddenly it was time to pack up. 

All for now, hope you all had a good weekend.
