Hello my lovely friends!
Sorry I haven't been around - all I seem to be doing is apologising, but I am soooo busy with these bookmarks I am afraid to turn on the computer because as soon as I do an hour or 2 goes and that means less bookmarks done! Unfortunatly my helpers are busy with their studies at the moment ( it is the time for exames at the university) so I am left on my own! I must admit it is a big job - I am not really such a experienced crafter so sometimes I really don't know what else I can do! Thank you to all of you that have offered to help but I think it would be a bit risky to depend on the postal service, although I am sure all of you would deliver on time! Still I would be very greatful for any ideas you have to spice up my collection - I am at nr. 70 at the moment so 50 more to go! My problem is that I never do 2 things the same so even though some of them might look the same I use different materials, colors or some other detail to make them different! I will now go back to stamping as I have been doing quite a lot of punching! Also I started with a bit of doodling (zantangling) - I think that might be interesting too but it does take a lot of time. On most of my bookmarks I am using elements from nature - flowers, leaves, trees, birds, bugs, butterflies...anything to do with forests as we are a Forestry Library!
One more very important thing! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE AWARDS I have been given lately and still haven't put on my blog - not that I wouldn't appretiate them I just haven't had time to study how to put them on the blog - I did it before and forgot how I did it so now I have to start anew! I will do it soon so please bare with me as at the moment I am swamped!
Ok I should stop chatting away and show you what is on my desk! Guess what?? BOOKMARKS!! Ha, ha....
I think my photos are not very good today - don't know maybe because we have cloudy weather and the light isn't as it should be....finally the temperature has dropped so we now have the comfortable 23 - 25 deg C - we were up to 35 deg C on Sunday!
Anyways lets swing to the right where I have some new goodies - the BIG BITE and a new Fiskars paper cutter! Something I really use these days!
So there that is all you can see today - next week I hope to show you all my 120 bookmarks ( huh!!!) and a very tidy desk! Ha, ha.......
Hugs to all of you lovely friendsCardarian
