TRYING TO GET BACK IN THE SWING

I am having trouble trying to get back into some crafting with all that's been happening around here of late. Anyway, today is the day I've decided.

I die cut a couple of Tim's branch trees out of mount board in an attempt to make a start on Heather's October ATC swap, 'Things that go Bump in the Night'.  Obviously Halloween has an influence this month.

I just love this tree and can see me using it a lot for all sorts of projects. Heather wants us to include different shapes this time, not just the regular ATC size, so I'm trying to think outside the box. No ideas that are working at the moment, but I have all month. The little kitcat image is from some stamps given to me by Lindsay following a clear out she had. I think this one looks a bit evil so I reckon he will make an appearance somewhere.





Well, I said I had all month to complete Heather's swap, but that's not strictly true. I am eagerly waiting for the middle of the month to find out the themes for the grunge book swap which is being organised by Sheila.
I understand this swap to be full, but I'm not sure, so if you are interested please contact She direct. As there are 12 folk involved that means we all have to make 12 pages. Thank goodness we have until the end of March to achieve this. I will enjoy this very much, so, thanks She for all your hard work to get this going.

Must crack on then. x

Motivation and opportunity are strange bedfellows, Joanne - not always compatible but sometimes flashpoint arrives and you can't stop them...

I too am having a crafty day - so far I have cut out components, lined up my projects and spent too much time ordering supplies! So much for being very busy.

Hope the tree project goes well and the next one proves interesting too. As for real life, may that soon give you space.
