Holiday time!

No posts for the last week I'm afraid as I have been away on my hols. We went to Old Colwyn and had a lovely time. The scenery was beautiful and I got lots of crafty inspiration

Mish mash

This week has been about catching a few minutes here and there to craft so I have been doing random bits and pieces. 
I have done a bit of jewellery... 
I have made a bespoke card for a customer... 

I have practiced book folding...

And I have been promoting my button selling page between all this. 
I have had a very busy week what with Thomas going back to nursery school and Daniel teething but it's nice to keep my hand in and craft when I can.

Something new

Today I fancied trying something new so I have had a go at book folding. I have seen lots of examples of this and some of them are incredible. 
I bought some hardback books at the charity shop the other day on anticipation of this and today I finally got around to giving it a whirl. 
This is the book I started with 
It took a while juggling a sick baby and a little boy who had a very bad dream but I finally got it finished 
I am quite pleased with it. It is nowhere near perfect but good for a first go I think. 
I don't think I am ever going to settle with what I'm currently doing. I am constantly seeing new things I want to try. 
I have 11 more of these books to try out different patterns so I'm looking forward to that!
