Do you ever

Do you ever

Sorry for the lull in activity here. Do you ever regret starting something? For some reason we are in a major tidy up session. My daughter's room has been gone through, my youngest son's is most of the way there, my eldest son has been doing his own room and I've started the study/craft room. Upstairs isn't too bad but the study is currently in the phase where it looks worse than when I started! You know when you pull everything out to sort through it and you end up with piles everywhere. I'm not entirely sure what has set this tidy up project in motion, but I'm attributing it to the snow melting and milder weather we've been having - we are spring cleaning! We're just ignoring the fact that it's only January!

I did sneak in some time to make another card for last week's Tuesday Trigger. I did a masculine card for the trigger, but was very taken with the bright colours of the garland, so made a second card.



I have bought two little lamps with daylight bulbs to help take photos in the evenings and dull days we have here often. This photo is my first attempt at using them. I certainly got a better photo than I would've done without them, but feel I still need to learn how to take this type of photo better as I much prefer the photos I take in natural light.

Now, it's back to the sorting through these piles. I know I will feel better afterwards, but the process is a bit painful - I'd much rather be making something!

Love the bright colours on this card and the addition of the name is cute. Good luck with the spring cleaning - who knows, maybe you'll find some craft goodies in your stash that you'd forgotten about. It'll be like getting something brand new!

Oh my! I love love love those papers you used. What are they?! So cute. This card is really sweet. Love the layout and brightness of it. I bought a lightbox once, but never use it. I pretty much always take pics of my cards at night..I wonder if they seem dark? Hmm...lol
