The sewing machine was switched on for the first time this year but only to zig zag around a piece of 28 count fabric.
I have been playing with all my card making stuff. Some of it i have been given as presents and wanted to keep for my self rather than use on cards. But what to do? I never took up the scrapbooking craze and my time spent with stamping has been limited. I am a note book fanatic and had several of those as gifts so last week I put note book and paper carafting together and came up with these themed pages.
I am quite pleased with them and will do more.
I have been hunting up here since Christmas for an A4 sheet of mental that is really for keeping cross sheet charts on so that you can use various little magnetic windows and things to keep track of counting. I never got on with it really so stuck it in "a safe place. I finally found it and have stuck it on the wall to show off another of my Christmas gifts from John.
This is one set of a series of fridge magnets to have fun with from Otter house. I would provide the link but the web site isn't up yet.
I was thinking the other day that although I take more photographs than ever, I don't actually have any photographs. On iphoto I have over 3500 images but I never made hard copies. Is this the norm or do most people dash of to one of those machines and print them off?
Yesterday was exciting. I went to work. The first day this term. I quite enjoyed it. But in this particular school the amount of time spent on planning a weeks lessons is phenomenal. And as i often say there are only 24 hours in a day.
Tuesday was exciting too as I watched President Obama's inauguration I studied US politics in my first year at university. As this was such a memorable day I think I would have watched any way.
The coming week end is The big garden bird watch
Today I saw a robin and a blackbird, but I bet they don't appear on Saturday or Sunday. Last year we only saw sparrows.
Thank you for stopping by
