Okay so last week I said 143 and it was 144 - I admit, I'm a wrong un. Today is definitely 145 though, isn't it?
So, this was my desk this afternoon...
The commission for the retirement album is well under way despite only really starting on Sunday. The album itself arrived today so I've put in the 18 pages that I've completed in the last few days. You can also see the remains of the papers and cardstock that I've used so far, some plans for further pages, the beginnings of some rosettes and of course, that all important cup of tea.
And just so you know its me, here are the spots! You can see that I'm joining in with the Crafters Waltz (push to the back, squash to the left, squish to the right) and there are some more of the papers I'm using for the album there and some lovely bakers twine which arrived today.
But because I've been crafting for hours, I thought I would take another pic tonight to show the progress of another set of pages. The album has lots of purple in it as the car that will be featured is a fantastic shade of purple but there are also lots of blues, reds and browns too. The papers are all slightly grungy and masculine from a wonderful set from My Minds Eye.
By this time next Wednesday, the entire thing must be finished ready for posting first thing Thursday. Its been incredibly interesting to do and I've learned a lot but heck my mind has been a whirl of decisions and planning and working out ways to get a few more minutes of work in. I was even cutting and folding during B's ballet class and my Slimming World session!
I'll leave you with a very special layout (for SJ Crafts) about a subject close to my heart, in case you missed it the other day. Its about our weekly jaunt around the desks with Julia which has become so much of my routine and I had all the photos on my hard drive so I felt compelled to record it!
Right, 20 more pages to go......
Bye for now
