Pinch, punch, white rabbits etc

Friday saw the start of a new month and hopefully Spring proper. At last we have frog spawn in the pond, more daylight and sunshine and there are lambs in the fields. More excitingly though, Friday saw the launch of the Craft Stamper magazine e-zine. Containing 12 favourite step by step projects from 2010 as voted by readers, this e-publication is available free to download.

February finshed

Almost there with my catch up now!

Here is my February page completed. I forgot to say before, the typed quotes on each page are lines from Flanders and Swann's take on Sara Coleridge's poem The Months. March ready to start will be along soon - I just need to summon the energy to learn how to retrieve things from the new external hard drive to post the piccie.

Also in February I did a 3 for 3 ATC swap with the theme "abstract" which is fabulous for using all those experimental bits and pieces and off cuts from other projects. The first three below are the ones I sent to my swap partner on time but which somehow became separated from their envelope en route so she only got the envelope and a note from the PO! The bead bit on the first one makes me think of a headless giraffe - very wierd I know and unintentional when I put the glue on.

This set are the replacements I made which are waiting to be addressed and posted - with lots of extra glue and sellotape to make sure thet stay in the envelope this time.

A big hello to anyone reading this who has come back to visit despite such a very long time with no posts.

Since Christmas I haven't had a whole lot of time for crafty things and just when I was getting my 365 journal page for January ready the PC had a breakdown (and quite frankly at times I felt like joining it!).

Happily, after a stay in pc hospital, a return to factory settings and the very slow process of getting things installed again we're back in business so to speak.

First here is a picture of January completed.
And another of February ready to start.
I'll post again later with the end result.
