This week, I had a long list but didn't manage to actually make a lot. It's been one of those weeks where family stuff kind of takes over and leaves little room for much else. A real muddle of things:
- BT being unable to repair a phone line for my elderly parents (it took 9 days and lots of highly frustrating calls on my part)
- training mum (85) to use a mobile phone so we could speak to her (with limited success)
- selling a car (I can recommend AutoTrader - I could've sold about 30 cars in 2 days)
- and, sadly, a death in the family - my lovely Auntie Joan lost her battle after a long and painful illness
Then Craftseller magazine arrived to cheer me up a little! I have two features in this issue.
My heart photo frame...
and my Top Mum bird plaque...
The templates and instructions for both are in the magazine, as are the vintage-style papers I used for the bird plaque! The double-sided free papers come as an insert and are great for other stuff too, like card making. There's also a free tote bag this month if you need an extra incentive to buy the magazine!
Anyway, it's over to you now for Handmade Monday. I didn't do very well this week with visiting and leaving comments - sorry. Hopefully I'll be better this week. You know what to do...
