It was tempting to call this '.. and now for something completely different'.
I set this blog up to get me to dive into my growing card-making/papercrafting stash that I wasn't really using. But it's not a good reflection of all the things I like to make. I've been sewing for almost as long as I can remember, knitting since I was at primary school (although I then took quite a long break!), and have enjoyed baking for a very long time. My paper crafting is a pretty new thing.
I have a notebook, that on its first page, titled Crafting 2006, says "make all own cards". I failed, or more correctly I didn't manage it :-) I think the first year I will manage it will be this year. I was massively inspired by the likes of Barbara Gray, Sheena Douglas and Joanna Sheen on Create and Craft during a bout of flu a few years ago. Barbara Gray is my paper crafting hero, and I love her blog.
However, since my first post here on 7th February, I've been neglecting some of my other crafts, unless I've gone on a 'binge' - I did a lot of knitting at Easter. Baking has pretty much dropped off the map. I received a new recipe book this week, All Things Sweet by Rachel Allen, and I went on a binge bake today. I'd exhausted my card-making enthusiasm, but still wanted to make something, however as is typical I couldn't decided what to make, so made three different things. Tempting?
Double chocolate pecan blondies (at the back)
Banana, ginger and golden syrup bread (the half cut loaf)
I can't feel any less than delighted to have received over 1300 page hits since I set up this wee blog. No followers yet, but hopefully one day soon I'll have a blog that's worth people coming back to.
