Late into the Night

Good Morning again Everyone. This posting shows yesterday's efforts which continued on into the wee small hours. I think it was about 1.15am when I went to bed feeling very pleased with my day's work. This calendar is inspired by the one made by Debbie Dolphin at the beginning of this year. I fell in love with it and decided I would make some for SPECIAL FRIENDS at the end of this year. I am also going to teach it in Sept/Oct after I come back from our holiday. This is the proto-type. As always you learn heaps on your first one - things you would differently next time. The eagle eyed amongst you will see that it has a 2011 calendar hanging on the bottom. That's because I haven't bought any 2012 ones yet so I will have to change it when I have. I am also going to look on-line to see if I can print my own off. I am sure I will be able to but is it worth it??? These little pads cost me only a few pence in the UK last year so they are on my shopping list again for this trip. I had my Healthy Heart check at the Doctors this morning and am pleased to report everything is in good working order. Right I must go and tidy up my craft mess from yesterday. Have a good day all of you and thanks for stopping by today.

  2. !Oh my God! that is totally amazing, I'm so in awe my friend, wish I could see it in real life and that we could make one together. The colouring itself is awesome and the Tim Holtz clocks are such a great asset to have. After I have some done some gardening I'm going to come in and practise my colouring.
