I know I'm 3 days late but I hope you all had great New Year celebrations. I've already fallen at the first hurdle with my NY's resolutions. My main one was to be more organised but this just proves I'm not lol.
We weren't going to go out but we got an invite at the last minute and decided to go. We were to be at our friends for 8pm and at 5pm I started making her a little note tin. At 7:30 I was still making it so needless to say we were late AND I never got it finished lol. I did arrive with home baking and a promise that I had something else for her once I got myself organised (boo...there's that word again hmph).
Today was that day though I probably should have left it as we have company coming for dinner in about an hour and a half and my house is a tip. At least dinner is on the go so they won't starve :-D Luckily I didn't have much to do to finish the gift so here it is....
I just love these little tins (I'm sure I have said that before!) and I think they make the perfect gift. I don't have any calendars and note pads left so I made some note cards.
This is the set...only 4 would fit because of the crystals
Inside the tin
The pictures aren't great because my photo tent is boxed up (it usually sits on my dining room table) so the lighting is terrible and this particular picture is blurry. Anywho I wasn't going to mount the notecards but I forgot that Copics bleed through the back of the cs and it didn't look too pretty so had to change my plans. Then I was going to stitch around the edges but forgot and taped it down. I didn't want to gum up my sewing machine so added crystals to the corners instead. I added a larger crystal and some GD to the bra. IRL it's really lovely...hoonest lol. I'll wrap it up in tissue and give it to my friend tomorrow.
OH and I were invited to a football (soccer) game yesterday. Believe it or not I'm not a fan of football but it was a corporate thing so we got breakfast then a post match meal. I really like the people who invited us so I went for the company and food and not the game lol. The first half was so boring and I ended up checking out what colour boots the players were wearing and how many were wearing the same ones lol. It was so cold I was glad to go indoors at half time to get a coffee and cake. (another resolution down the tubes hmph) The second half was much better and our team won 2-0...yippee!!! It makes the league a bit more interesting and hopefully we'll win the league this year.
I'd better get going before I get caught out by my visitors! Don't forget tomorrow we're starting back with TLT. It's an easy peasy one so I hope you'll all roll up your sleeves and join in. The Ladybugs haven't let the holiday break get in the way of their creativity and I can tell you they have come up trumps again :-D
Thanks for stopping by today.
Catch ya later x
