I always read Viviens blog, she talks about both books and her scrapping, I always look at the images and wish that I could do that. On Saturday I clicked on a few links on her page and discovered the world of crafting. After looking a blogs and websites for a few hours - I'm not exaggerating, I thought I'd have a go.
Being on a budget I've brought a few bits and pieces - card, glue, sequins etc. I also went and raided my costume jewerlry box for the necklaces and bracelets that I know longer wear or are broken, I stole from them beads and buttons.
I brought a couple of magazines as well, including Lets Make Cards, I was shocked when I got to the till and discovered it cost £7.99 but when I got home and discovered the tons of Mr Men and Little Miss goodies I got with it I realised it was worth the money.
I spent a few hours today using that kit to make these two cards - one for my mum and one for my sister as I haven't been home since June.
I also used the kit and a few beads to make these book marks, which I'll probably stick in the bookcrossing books I send out.
