Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's back to work I go...

It feels like an age since my last post - though it's only been just over a week! I haven't done much in the way of crafting, I haven't really felt like it to be honest - I've been spending my last week of maternity leave with Tim rather than squirrelling myself away making cards every night! So, yes, back to work next week...I'm lucky that I can go back part-time so I get the best of both worlds - spending time with grown-ups and being able to spend time with Connor. He's had some of his settling in sessions at nursery... he's already reeled the carers at nursery in with his smiles and cheek so I'm sure he'll be fine!

I managed to miss WOYWW yesterday, though I did manage to take a picture so here it is...

At the back is the first canvas for my friends, however... I'm not happy with it at all... too many embellishments I think, so back to the drawing board with this one. The images at the front waiting to be coloured are from Tiddly Inks' Gothic cute collection.

Even though I've been lacking on the card front - I've altered a white lantern from Sainsburys using alcohol inks and prima flowers.

I've got a bigger one from Wilko's to alter in a similar way, though I might go more down the blue line...


  1. Ah Maz, you are hard on yourself - I thought the canvas a stunner - but you know best for sure! I love the lantern too, lovely idea. Good luck at work - I hope the orutine change isn't an upsetter or too exhausting!

  2. I didn't catch up with any blogs Wednesday because my eye just wouldn't allow it. It's a little better today so I'm trying to catch up on a few blogs.
    Hope all goes well back at work.
