Well I had the best sleep last night I have had in ages, honestly I went to bed very early about 7pm and woke up about 1am got a drink and a sandwich (I had gone to bed with no dinner again)
then went back to bed about 2am and slept will the alarm went off at 7am so I got around 11hrs sleep which is unheard of for me absolutely unheard of I do sleep a lot but it is for short bursts 2hrs sometimes 3hrs at a time and then I am awake for 2/3hrs x
So although I am sore this morning I am going to try and limit my movements so I can stay awake and not take my painkillers until lunchtime and then hopefully 2/3hrs nap and then awake till bedtime thats the hope anyway.
Yesterday I didnt nap at all so I did a little bit of crafting, I made a card and a bag for my little great nephew Freddie, I bought him a few wee outfits that were so cute, Denim dungarees (my favorite on wee boys I just love them) and a wee blue and white striped top and then 2 bedsets one says my daddy is my hero and the other says my mummy is the best x so made a wee bag using 12x12 papers and a base then chopped the `12x12 down to the height I needed I then just added ribbon to close it and a wee ribbon round the base to just pretty it up a little. The card was really basic I actually turned my room upside down yesterday (no kidding) looking for a hunkydory baby boy card set I bought a while ago (also bought a girls one) and I cant find either of them anywhere in this guddle of a craftroom, I would love to declutter but honestly I use almost everything in this room I have loads of things but I do use it all as I jump from one craft to the next in the drop of a hat. So to bin anything or sell it on, I know within a few weeks I would need to rebuy it. GRRRR
Going to get Ian to pop out to Barrhead today and pick up another 2 sets of drawers for my craftroom and try to get rid of the bulky plastic boxes I used to use when I used my shelving they worked fine but realistically they are too heavy for me to be lugging across the room back and forth when I need them, I have been looking out for a filing cabinet second hand of course to store my papers in (not my paper pads) just my a4 & smaller and my scraps in colour schemes to make them much more easily accessible as just now I have 2 boxes of scraps and they are just sitting there cause to root through them for what I need just annoys me. I am the most annoying person in the world for being so messy and cluttered I do like things to be put away in a set fashion.
Yesterday I also made my niece Leah her Birthday cards
I made ours to look like a tag and have told Carol and Eugene that they can cut off the back and let her use it as a bookmark when she is taking down her cards,
The one from the boys is just leah to a tee, such a princess but playful x
I stamped and coloured this using promarkers and then added some crystal stickles x the paper on the mat layer is from the funfair line the colours just worked perfectly for a fun girly card x
This one was coloured using promarkers and sakura gel pens x
