Yes, I really have done some crafting..... so thought I'd share.
First, a selection of cards for the crop on WeScrap...and for those who think I've gone over to the dark side, two of them are actually birthday cards:)
Next is a LO for the Fall Contest on WeScrap ( the one where you can win a Vagabond machine). We had to choose a LO in the gallery and do a sketchlift.
Here I am at Alexandra Palace. Important for two reasons..to remember the day and to show that I do in fact have legs and do occasionally wear girly clothes. :)
I used a Creative Imaginations kit bought ages ago from QVC - perfect colours I thought.
Finally, we have an altered mirror that I did last night. Bought at Ally Pally along with the Decopatch papers and glue. It's destined for s'one's Christmas stocking. :)
And ,yes, that is my torso in the mirror..still in my pj's.
How has my first non-smoking day gone? Weeeeeelllll, it started badly, when I sat down with my coffee and automatically lit up...oops! This did not go down well with the person assigned as support and encouragement (remember we're using the "stick" method as opposed to the "carrot"). A further lapse (due to an emotional moment) has seen my punishment doubled. :(
Add to that the fact that I've been eating industrial amounts of chocolate, I'm almost out of wine and have cleared the drinks cabinet so well that I'm down to the whiskies (bleugh) and Tia Maria ...not a good day.
I'm really going to have to watch my weight - I can't afford yet more new undies and clothes..going naked ,whilst comfortable, isn't really an option - I don't think Thame High Street is ready for that..damn, I don't think our street is ready for that!
I learnt via Facebook that I'm going to be a great-aunt again next year courtesy of my nephew (who I've threatened to disinherit if he doesn't drop the "great"). Since his partner has two boys from her marriage and he has a boy and girl from his last relationship..that will make 5. Wondering what the odds are on it being a girl?
DH's niece is also expecting next year for the first time. My SIL is so looking forward to being a Grandma...why??? I've told DS I'm much too young.
And finally...NaNoWriMo.....what is it you ask?
November is write a novel month (or at least 50,000 words of a novel) and I've signed up to do it.
It's something I've wanted to do for a while so when I saw it advertised on breakfast TV (I knew getting up early was dangerous) I decided to go for it.
Now I've just got to decide what sort of book to write...
Diary of A Middle Aged Housewife aged "old enough to know better"...based on my blog?
Erotic romance? In which case what's the British equivalent of cowboys?
Murder and mayhem?
