My November with That's Crafty

Hi all,

I've not blogged for ages! It's very remiss of me, but I have been busy and doing things. 

I was invited by Laura Holland to be Guest Designer for That's Crafty for the month of November this year. I was really pleased to be asked and jumped at the chance. Opportunities to get your work seen by lots of people must not be overlooked.

I will tell you about my November, but I'll try to keep it brief as the full blogposts and instructions on makes are on That's Blogging Crafty. So, without further ado...

Week 1 - I started big. Maybe I should have left it for a grand finale. I took four of the very many MDF storage boxes and, rather than decorating one, I did a big old design on all four.        


Week 2 - Every year, the press warns us of a really heavy snowfall on the way at least three times every winter. Most years, they don't even come close and this year, so far, they're wrong again. Thank goodness. Freshly fallen snow looks beautiful, but that's where it ends for me. In my heart, I hate snow. It's dangerous, goes hard and grey after a day and it's excruciatingly cold. So my second project reflected this.  


Week 3 - I was in a flurry of card making and I thought the best thing would be to create a card. After all, cards appear to be one of the most popular makes these days.

And finally, in Week 4, I was desperate to play. I've been taking direction from some of Kate Crane's online courses, Journal Soup 1 & 2 and Marvellous Miniatures. They are so addictive and they are the perfect way for me to relax and unwind. You may be different. I love to get messy. So I just wanted to play. I didn't really know where I was going with it; the only plan I had was to make 'Soup.' 

As it turned out, the last one was my favourite. I hope these posts inspire you to try something different. Don't do the same as everyone else. Be yourself. You're the best you there is.

Love and peace,

Wendy x
