Well.... it's still raining here in Wales! A good chance to plan new projects and the total re-vamp of my craft room! That's still in the planning stages as it's going to be a big job involving large black backs, new storage and paint!
This is my first WOYWW blog from my new Apple Mac laptop and I've been a bit slow in finding my way around, being used to Windows up until now. I've had to download new photo editing software too so wish me luck!
My desk this week...,
You can see a 8x8 scrapbook that I am personalising for a colleague at work for her new grand daughter. It's just one from Hobbycraft and I am going to add her name. I wanted to keep it simple so that in the future it can be handled by little hands eager to look at her baby photos without worrying about it being spoilt!
You can also see a pile of Christmas cards that I plan to up cycle to make a mini journal. (Something else in the planning stages!) I have seen a few on various blogs and thought I'd have a go.
Peeking out from under the cards are the two ATC's I have made for the next A-Z ATC challenge with Ali H. I can't share them with you this week as I haven't given Ali her's yet! I had the letter E and resisted the urge to do elephants!
At Christmas my parents bought with them a photo album with my Dad's baby pictures in! Nothing remarkable about that I hear you say, no but my Dad is 87 years young and was born in 1926! This album is full of wonderful old sepia photos which tell a story of a gentle bygone age. I just love looking at it. Great for some nostalgic LOs and other projects. I'll leave you with a sample...
Look at their fabulous dresses and hats! My Dad is the baby on his Grandmother's knee.
What a pram!
This is my favourite. My Dad and his toys! 2 years old.
On holiday in Tenby 1928
Dad with his Father, my Grandfather Ernest. (He used to make tasty pea and ham soup!)
Have a happy week!
