Inchies Galore

Well I was out with the girls last night, so didn't get to bed until half six this morning - I was in the house earlier than this but HAD to watch last nights The Biggest Loser!! Im addicted to it - this is the first time Ive even HAD to watch a TV programme!

Due to being late to bed, I only had a few hours this afternoon to craft, but I made the most of it!


I finished off my magnetic inchies with some diamond glaze, although this stops you photographing them very well!



I also made inchies for the Alphabet Inchie Swap Im hosting on swapbot. This round was for the letters P - T. I went for Pirate, Queen, Red, Spider (which scared me even making it!!), & T-shirt! I haven't photogrpahed them yet, but I'll share soon.

I ordered some new paper pads today, ive had some bad luck of late and thought I'd treat myself since its payday. I went to the site with the intention of only spending £10, but ended up spending £20 - shame on me! I have millions of paper already!! I can't wait for it to arrive though! It will be the same as normal, I'll think its too nice to use and end up adding it to the pile - does anyone else do this?!

Packages



Well I mailed 11 packages today - 3 are for swaps on swapbot and the other 8 are surprise packages for swapbot members ..... will you be getting one?! The surprise packages contain handmade phone/bag charms that I made. Hope the receivers like them!


Ive been busy crafting away and Ive been making some really cool inchies (in my opinion anyway!). Ive got my magnetic ones ready for a swap, but don't know who Im sending too yet, only a few days until partners are assigned.


I also made a Sakura Pendant. I joined a swap for them back in June 2009 i think, I was looking at the old swap the other day and realised that someone had not got one from their partner so offered to make her one as it was a shame for her to miss out. Its now ready, and Im just waiting on her sending me her address.

Yoker at night

So I was dropping a friend off the other night after the cinema, and I saw a great view from near her house, but I didn't have my camera with me. It was about midnight and my camera phone just wasn't up to the task.

Anyway not one to be defeated I returned last night after work and armed with my camera attempted to get a good shot. Unfortunately it was windy and I was taking a photo over the river Clyde so the water wasn't smooth like a few nights before. I couldn't get a very good photo, I really need to study my camera more! Here is the final shot I settled for.

Crafting

Im working today, so no time for being creative, however I made these inchies & ATCs yesterday so thought I'd share them. They are all for swaps I joined on http://www.swap-bot.com/ I'd be lost without my daily fix of swapbot!


These inchies are for the "Love is in the air" swap that I'm hosting. One of the inchies opens up like a Valentines Day Card!




I then made two of these ATCs, for some swaps Im in.














Lastly I made some Zentangle Inchies, Im hosting a "Black & White" inchie swap so I'm not sure if I'll use these for that swap or just keep them for a zentangle swap!

Well here it is, my first post! I have been tinkering with the idea of starting a blog for forever and at last sat down and did it today.

I plan to use the blog for my ramblings, to share my photographs, and to learn from others, but until I learn how to use the site (Ive already lost this post twice!), I'll just start today with ten facts about me ....

3. Outdoors is the place to be

4. I know British Sign Language

5. I take too many photographs


6. Im a geocacher (Krazy-cache-hunter)

7. My favourite colour is green

8. I could eat macaroni & cheese for every meal for the rest of my life

9. Music beats television

10. I can't spell!
