It's photo time!

I've been a bit slack in taking pics of my recent creations, so as I have a bit of a quiet day today (thank goodness for childcare!) I thought I'd catch up.

Some of these are still works in progress.. I want to make a few tweaks here and there, but I figured I'd post them as much to remind myself as for you lovely people to make "oooohh" noises over :)

I'm planning to have a Christmas workshop thingy in early November where people can come along and make a few cards and other things, and a couple of these projects I thought I might use for that.
If you would be interested in booking a spot, please feel free to leave me a message and I'll post more details in a little while.

And now... on to the photos!

  1. Lou these are all great. Love your mini album and your first brayer attempts. I often make things and forget to take pictures too, so I am glad you found some quiet time to do it.
