Hi lovely blog friends,
No new project today, I just wanted to say thank you for all your lovely comments about the snowflake card yesterday, it was actually such a pleasing card to make, do you know what I mean? It's one of those techniques that just develops in small bursts before your eyes.
I also wanted to say thank you to Linda and Christine for joining in with my question about how you came to paper crafting - everyone was quite different and I have loved reading them all. After reading all the responses, I felt I had skipped over my Mum and that just wouldn't do, because she too played a big part in my creativity...she wasn't 'arty' but she supported the love of art my dad and I shared; she also taught me to cook, knit and sew. I am the most frustrated knitter, I get bored too quickly - I've had a chunky knit sweater on the go for 18 months, but I still have a fabulous chunky sweater Mum knitted me when I was 18 and it's as good as new! Mum could make clothes, but my sewing is restricted to small craft projects, like the angels and other primitives, I have shown on my blog before, but many months ago, so a repeat peak for those of you who weren't following me back then...

So these are the extent of my sewing - I was thinking about these patterns recently and thinking about finding time (lol) to make some more next year, then I remembered I had lent some of them to a friend!
Mum was also my biggest fan, when she passed away we found all the cards I had ever made her neatly packed in a drawer; even when her health was poor, she would want to be involved, so if I was doing a craft fair, I would take my newly made cards to her house around the corner and we would spend an afternoon bagging them up...you can never replace times like that can you?
Happy crafting friends!
PS I have been looking through all the entries so far in our Emergency Crafters Autumn Leaves challenge and there are some beautiful cards and projects there..there's still time to enter!
