Week Two & I've realised WOYWW is a great way to keep track of the days! While Luke got ready for school today I felt the urge to make a pair of earrings. I sat on my bed and made these and then wanted to make another pair. I knew I'd probably make us late if I did, so I left everything out for when I got home & it's all still there.... untouched.....

Pimp it Up!

I bought these notebooks & memo boxes in a closing down sale for 75p a pop. I'd love to say this is my first foray into altered art, but it's really a jolly pimp up! Easy I know, but it's important for my confidence to make anything & above all, to enjoy it. Liking the end result is a big plus!

A WOYWW first!

While dusting my blogland passport off I've enjoyed hopping over to WOYWW. So here's mine from earlier today. I've been recycling cards while I struggle to create again. This is a topper taken off a used card, a Papermania blank bought in a sale & never used &... a packet of Mentos! I think I'll keep it simple & just add torn vellum, ribbon & a few gems. I'd love some ideas for sentiments as it's always my sticking point.

Whatever Happened To.....

.... last week? Oh to be back at primary school when playtime was a regular occurrence! Well, today I decided I deserved a break & made this card for mum for Mothers' Day using the Papermania "Chatsworth Collection" I bought when it came out -and never used. I even bought the stamps & almost managed not to smudge them!
