Today’s letter is K – Knickerbockers
Hey, I am a scrapbooker, card maker, mixed media artist, vegetable gardener genealogist :D I love to do all of the above. I'm a pretty easy going woman that likes to have a really good laugh with friends. I love hanging out with people of mixed backgrounds and get along with pretty much everyone I meet. I am happiest when I'm getting my hands dirty, whether that be with ink and paint or dirt in my veggie patch.
The top card, the man’s world was my first attempt at a local swap I am in, the theme Boy.. I didn’t really like this one, well I just didn’t think it was really boy, more man. So I did the “Harry Potter ain’t got nothing on me” and was MUCH more happy!!!! The button fairy atc is for Australian ATC swaps. The Thank You card is for my Aunt who gave me a lovely bowl and plate as a very late engagement present.. Still the first we ever got LOL!!
I made some button fairies for presents. I made one to go in Helen’s Secret Santa pack, I made one for Shannon and one for Stacey as a ‘tide you over’ Christmas present (I haven’t finished their actual presents.. LOL) Here are the button fairies..
First off I would like to wish everyone a very belated Merry Christmas!!! Also a Happy New Year! Anyone got any good resolutions? I plan to keep dieting this year. 2008 Saw me start dieting in the August/September mark and in 2009 I continued until just after June/July when L&E kept mucking up orders, so at the hefty price they were charging I gave them the flick. I went back (tail between legs? lol) in late September to loose a few KG’s before my O/s trip.. but since then I haven’t dieted at all. I have put on about 4-5 kgs.. For Christmas Michael bought me a Wii and the Wii Fit and Balance Board (at my requst). I have been doing it every day and have been enjoying it! The last 2 days have been extremely hot (40 degrees Celsius) and I did 1 hour plus and then 30 mins yesterday. I can feel my muscles.. Little bit of pain, but not too bad. I wouldn’t call it a resolution, but getting healthier is still on my things to do ;)
OK now to crafting!!!! I followed Tim Holtz’s 12 tags of Christmas this year. I loved going everyday and seeing something new to inspire me! I decided to join in their competition. Here are my 12 tags. I hope that you like them!!
