Hello! This is my first post of 2017 and it comes to you wishing you a very Happy New Year! Now that things are "getting back to normal" after the festive period I'm hoping that I get a little more time to craft!
Looking back over 2016 I did manage 174 posts although I admit that performance tailed off in the latter months! 2016 was a busy old year. Family things and work seemed to take up all the free time. I need to take control of my time and ensure none of it gets wasted away on tasks that have no benefit!
It's a chilly day here in Central Scotland, although considering the weather we sometimes have in January it's really not bad at all! Frosty nights and mornings and a lunch time high of 4 degrees. Warm and cosy here in the craft room though!
I think I started last year saying I was going to use craft stash rather than buy new things. That started off fairly well.. but didn't last! I'm not in the habit of making New Year resolutions but I will be trying (trying!) to watch the crafty spending, make good use of my time, and blog regularly (not much point of having a blog if I don't update it!)
So here is my first card of 2017 made with a Sizzix die that Santa brought me.. I paper pieced all the bubbles - it took a wee bit of time but was strangely therapeutic!
I'm going to enter this card in the following "Anything Goes" Challenges:
