So I've finally finished designing Sophie's Save the Date Cards for her naming ceremony in April 2012. I'm now just making up all the components to complete the 50 cards that we need to send out. Found it really frustrating trying to produce a pretty girly card which was easy to reproduce because of the number we need, something which I can follow the theme through onto the invites when I do them. So am going to go with a flower and butterfly theme.
and mine definitely wasn't! My office/craft space was a tip, parts of projects everywhere, craft papers all over the place and not filed away because I couldn't be bothered, and numerous projects I've taken away with me to do still in bags since coming home from god-knows-where.
So I've just spent the last 2 hours blitzing the place. everywhere is tidy, I just have a few more papers to file away and then I can start crafting in earnest tomorrow! First on the agenda, Save the Date Cards for Sophie's Baby Naming Ceremony in April.
So here is my first ever blog. It's taken me ages to design it so that I'm happy with it - it would appear it's not just my craft mojo that's done a bunk, but my design inspiration too. Probably something to do with this little lady:
Sophie May was born on the 14th October 2011 to a very ecstatic Mummy and Daddy. She was 1 week old in this photo but is now 6 weeks old today. She is changing every day and I'm loving it. We now have plenty of gurgles and laughs and little noises where she is trying to find her voice.
Needless to say my craft aspirations have had to take a back step, but I really want to get on with it again now. This blog is just the start. I'm going to start up the website again so that I can hopefully start selling some of my wares, which is what I really want to do. I have obviously missed the Christmas market but I still have Christmas Cards to make for friends and family, then I'm going to concentrate on Valentines. I've 'borrowed' an idea from a fellow mumsnetter of setting a timer for 15 minutes every day where I need to do craft. I'm in the middle of tidying up my desk/craft space, so I can get on with it. Sophie will join me in the office in her moses basket while I'm crafting.
