It seems like tradition now that when I need a present for a baby I go to hobbycraft and buy an initial to decorate for their room.  So luckily I was already en route to hobbycraft when I got a text to say a colleague had just had her baby boy Evan. 

I used lots of bits and pieces from my stash to customise it. Can't wait to hear if they like it!

That Back To School Feeling....

Today was my first day back at work after half term and I don't know whether I'm just tired and suffering a post half term shock to the system, or if I'm coming down with something, but I came home feeling rough and am already in bed.

As I was led here doing nothing I thought I'd blog!

I managed to fit in quite a lot of crafty time during half term, I finished my christmas journal and my 2012 yearbook, I won't bore you with those...I'm not the happiest with them and can't really be bothered to take photos! I will share some other little projects though.

Unfortunately I didn't photograph this properly but you get the idea.  I made this for my teaching assistant who is waiting for her second grandchild in the next few weeks.  It was just a car seat size so worked up really quickly.  I'm pleased to report she was thrilled with it.

With the money she paid me for the blanket I treated myself to some yarn for a blanket for me, which is one of the items on my 30 in my 30th year list.  It's working up quite quickly although I'm sure now I'm back at work progress will slow a little! The colours were inspired by a blanket I spotted on Pinterest but I'm not entirely sure how happy I am with my choices...maybe they'll grow on me!

Back soon with some papery projects! Xxx

You Can Tell It's Half Term!!'re not seeing things....I actually scrapped! A whole 12x12 and loved every minute. 
I was inspired by the latest Sarah's Cards challenge so I thought I'd give it a go.
