First time back in the drivers seat, I don't know how it's managed to get to 2012 already but I'm feeling a little windswept. I don't know why I'm finding life a little difficult right now, perhaps I am taking on too much, but I definitely feel like I'm trudging through treacle! But anyway right now it seems I will manage a whole blog post, and the below Etsy listing, before I have to put on my wellies again.
I made this journal out of a bunch of recycled elements, mainly candy wrappers! I had such fun, it is the first journal I have made for my shop in quite a while and it felt really, really good.
lots of vintage bits on the front including an Edwardian antique coin from 1907.
I have also managed to do a video tutorial, one of three to do with the Christmas Card Journal tutorial I promised, though it's nothing to do with the actual journal....all will become clear when they're completed and uploaded (as it currently stands you're basically getting a class rather than just a tutorial.)
I have also tried to organise this blog a little better (hence the addition of some top page buttons) but yesterday I spent hoooooooours sorting out a page, realised I hadn't saved it so pressed the save, and then preview pretty much straight after, and the combination together somehow wiped all my work!!!! I was LIVID!!! But perhaps it's life's way of telling me to slow down a little. Hopefully, lack of time won't make everything seem so difficult come next week.... :/....I did say 'hopefully'.
Hope you are having a better start to the year???? Thanks for visiting, Jennibellie xx
