...in action. Missing challenges. Missing deadlines & designing for my DT's...missing blogging...
sort of. Not really. Not enough to push me into doing something about it.
I have these little plans, you see. That keep me busy & motivated.
I've been thinking about trying to video my December Daily.
I spent a whole day in the craft room, with my iPhone & took a heap of films.
And in the end, I decided it simply is not for me.
I love the chatting bit, but I can't seem to do the technical bit very well.
Oh well. If I could be BOTHERED getting the big camera & proper stand out...
But I'm a lazy sod, as you know.
I'm back doing happy mail. Cos it makes me...HAPPY!
I did one for a friend. She hasn't got it yet....but I hope it makes her...HAPPY!
That is the inside.
I made one for a post Christmas swap. But forgot to take photos!
It's headed for the USA, as part of the FB group I'm in.
Then that got me thinking about Christmas just as some post-season bits arrived
from Mitra P.
So....I'm in the middle of making a decoration with the box she sent all the yummies in!
It's not finished yet, but so far:
The other thing is we're having a bit of scrap room expansion.
See, I'm in one end of the garage [ex-son's bedroom I nicked as soon as he moved out!]
The Younger Son is in the other end. Except he's been OS working 'forever' & he IS
28 [almost]. So, I'm taking over most of his end. There'll still be a bed...
That internal door will open, eventually [it's covered in shelves with ink pads etc on
the other side atm!]
To the right, beside the window, is the external door.
This room has a BASIN. So I can use that instead of getting wet using the outside
you today. Just saw the forecast. Wilting. Over 40C [104F!]... & almost as hot overnight.
That's pretty hot. Understatement...
so the last thing I wanted to share is a couple of my PL pages from December
that I've started.
Decided to do a smaller insert, then a larger one. This is the last pages before I
need to start a new album. I've squeezed 2015 & 2016 into ONE album. But if I scrap
for another 10 years, even, that's another FIVE albums. They're 12x12. That's a LOT!
I ADORE doing PL. But I don't know. That's a lot of albums....still, I'll have
my new room I guess??!!!
Sorry for the not so hot photos. Lazy with the iPhone again! And the
plastic pockets don't help...
LOL! I do love the Gilmore Girls!!! Still enjoying using my COLLECT app
on my phone to choose photos & journal as I go during the month.
Makes creating my PL a breeze...
The only thing I found with doing my December Daily, is that it 'copies' what
I've put in my PL. But in a lot more detail, of course. Still, it doesn't worry
me enough to not do either of them!
I'm onto using Old Stash this year. I'm getting the KITAHOLIC KITS for a bit, as a treat
for not buying any new stuff. Hmmmnnnnn....... that's a bit like saying you're going on
a diet & your reward for not eating sweets is a lemon tart I guess. Oh well.....
Sooo, that left hand 'friends' sticker is Very Old & my PL cards are Old. The stars are old.
Me & my friend are old[ish!].
The washi tape is new!
The 'shine bright' WAS a PL card,
given to me from Happy Mail & I punched the saying out of the centre.
This year I'm also not going to be afraid to Cut Stuff Up & throw the rest out.
Let's see how we go!
Sorry for the rambling post, but now I fee free to write
how I like. NO obligations or duties.
I'm cheerfully chomping on brown bread with vegemite for breakfast [in bed!] this
morning, the dog at my feet. It's a nice relaxed start to our day.
Yesterday, I had the youngest grand boy and eldest overnight. I am blessed they both
slept right through the night. But I'd forgotten how full-on babies are!
Lucas & I still managed to make some cupcakes. I'd forgotten how much babies sleep,
Might have been some fishing, kayaking & "just getting down in the water fully clothed
what else", sort of fun happening!!"
Mr Blue eyes can't get left out:
Wish I had skin like that!!
On that note...have a good one! Hope you get scrappy. Think I'll be packing up my room:)
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
