Another completed project.

In 2009 I was invited to join a miniature journal round robin with some lovely ladies in various corners of the world. The format was very small - 2" x 3" - with lots of different themes. On the weekend, I finally finished the outer cover and put the little book together and it's so nice to have another project finished.

The theme of my mini album was "Childhood" and each participant could do what they wanted as long as the page had a picture of their face as a child ... it's so cute, I love the pages that were created.

Unfinished projects!

Ever since I moved back to Sydney and started working full time, I really haven't found much time to dabble in the arts and crafts like I used to.  I made a pact with myself that I would do a little bit of art of some kind every weekend or every other weekend in an attempt to finish all those half done projects.

Like most of us crafters, I have unfinished projects all over the place.  I feel great that I finally finished scrapbooking my mum's wedding photos a few weeks ago, the mini album of my sister's pregnancy of my nephew and a couple of weekends ago I finally made the cards from a card kit I bought in Brisbane in June ... and here they are.
Details of the kit and how to make 9 cards ... I managed to make 16 with some other leftover papers & flowers.
