Except for the occasional card here and there I haven't done any serious crafting since September 2013! I know...over a year...I can't believe it either but I'm happy to say that all changed this weekend as I spent a really enjoyable time at a crafty retreat with friends.
Before I could pack up the car and leave home on Friday I had to venture into and tidy up my craft room in order to find everything I wanted to take. Now that was a challenge in itself (as some of my friends will know as my boyfriend once posted a photo of my messy room on Facebook)! It was like Aladdin's cave and I found a whole box of Tim Holtz items I'd purchased and not even opened!
So onto one of the projects I completed during the retreat. A while back my Niece asked me if I could make her a name banner for the little girl she was expecting last Thursday. I'm pleased to announce that Maisie was born on Friday so it was full steam ahead to get this project completed. I didn't really want to do anything too cute and wanted it to reflect my crafting style. I started with a piece of plain mount board and obviously used lots of Tim Holtz products, got very inky and enjoyed every part of getting back into crafting.
I'm thrilled with the finished piece and visited my great Niece to meet her this morning, she is absolutely beautiful. Her Mum and Dad were also very pleased with the gift I'd made for them.
It's great to be back so watch this space for the posts showing the other 2 projects I've enjoyed working on over the weekend.
Thanks for looking!
