Hello ladies I hope you all had a good & enjoyable weekend. I spent mine as you can see above - emptying cupboards. I am very fortunate to have a lot of cupboards on my landing some of which over the years have got filled with craft things. The only thing is - they have not been looked at for a while. So this weekend was the start of correcting that fault.
Why did I buy this? Why did I keep this? Wonder what I was doing with this! Well! - so that is where that disappeared to!
Take a look at these
I had a passion at one time for polystyrene shapes - covering them in patchwork material, ribbon & as we can see here - sequins & ribbon. I wonder what I made it for? Was I going to give it to someone? Did I make it for a raffle prize?
and this one?
I must have had a lot of patience.
Now I wonder what else I was going to put on this one ............ and ............... I wonder if I am going to find a box with the sequins & pins in so that I can finish it.
I re-discovered rolls of crepe paper! I used to make my own crackers.
I re-discovered loads of Christmas wrapping paper - seems I really didn't have a very good memory from one December to another.
Although very frustrating that I had left these cupboards so long in this way it was actually quite exciting & fun to open a box or bag & reveal what was inside. Photos of one of Bob's birthdays spent with my brother in the Isle of Man. Everyone is sooooo young. Photos of myself - even younger than that. So now I have several scrapbook pages I must do. I have been meaning to do a scrapbook "Book of Me" but kept putting it off - now I think I really must get down to it.
Enough about my slapdash cupboard contents.
Here are the photos of that gorgeous sunset as I left the CSNW meeting last Wednesday.
I stopped & took this one on the road from Rhuddlan to the A55 at St Asaph.
Couldn't see for a little while afterwards as I had looked directly into the sunlight. It looked much bigger in actual life.
For this one I pulled off the A55 & drove a little way down the road. This was taken looking across some fields & I only just caught it before the sun went altogether. The clouds were amazing.
Today I have had a meeting with the other ladies of the Stamp Festival committee sorting out a few things for September. DON'T FORGET - the Autumn festival is on 29 September a bit earlier than usual.
Tomorrow I am going to try & make some cards for the blog challenges that I have in the past entered. I haven't joined in for a while - so thought it was about time I started again. Plus there are birthday cards to be made. Not forgetting wedding invitations.
That is me for today - more tomorrow & hopefully some photos of cards to show you.
'Bye for now have a great evening.
