Getting Ready for a Random Time

Not long now until the next crop.
  • A Few of my Favourite Things  mini book class designed
  • Cupcakes planned
  • Kits at my house (but not packed yet)
  • Excitement abounds!
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday and I will leave you with a picture of the papers we are going to be using.  They are from the beautiful Random collection by Crate Paper.

Hopefully I will be back later in the week with some sneaky peeks. If you are coming to the crop and I haven't emailed you with the photo requirements please email me at

Take & Make

Well December seems to have passed by in a blur of tinsal and glitter and I completely omitted to post any photos from the December Mega Crop!  I may get a few posted next week but no promises.

Yesterday, was our January crop and rather than have a formal class we had a make and take where the components for a little project were laid out and we just took the bits and a set of instructions when we felt like tackling the project but mainly got on with out own thing all day.

We started off with 1 piece of pattern paper, 1 set of journaling cards, 8 labels, a piece of ribbon and a printed die cut.

We than turned it into this - a little photo wallet that holds 8 photos with lines for journaling on the back.  

Mine featured photos of my G-Girl through the ages from her first Christmas at 8 months to this one just gone when she was 18.  I was struck by how out of focus the early photos were and lament the fact that with the old film cameras you didn't know how the photo would turn out until you had them developed and by then the moment had passed and it was too late :(
The wallet holds 4 photos in the triangular pockets, 

one tucked in each side and 

one tucked into each side of the middle.

I think all ladies made at least one wallet with some making more to send to relatives as far away as Australia!

So with a promise to update this blog a little more often I leave you with rather belated Happy New Year wishes.
