... I hadn't intended to take a blog break but on top of the madness of Christmas preparations DD2 got quite poorly with flu. Her temperature went over 40 degrees at one point so I called NHS Direct which led to being redirected to the Pandemic Flu line resulting in a prescription of Tamiflu for her. Fortunately she was a bit better the next day so we decided not to give her the medicine. It does annoy me that Tamiflu is prescribed for a 5 year old without a proper diagnosis being made and now DD2 is a 'Swine Flu statistic'. Anyway she recovered over the next few days and was able to fully enjoy the Christmas festivities.
So I have done very little crafting, nothing on my Xmas Journal - I may well continue with it, I shall at least put all the photos I took into one album.
I did manage a DT LO for Butterfly Crafts which went live on 1st January.
For the 1st of Jan 2010 challenge they have decided to do something a bit different and create a sketch for you to use instead of giving a challenge topic. So you just need to use the sketch for your lay-out and it can be on any topic you like
I sprayed a mask of glimmer mist for the circle which hasn't shown up well on the photo.
As you can see I've decided to take up a new hobby for 2010 - crocheting. I used to do other crafts until scrapbooking completely took over my life, so inspired by all the lovely hats, brooches and blankets I see on the internet I have invested in some hooks and wool! I started a skinny scarf over the holidays and just need to complete the edging, so quite pleased with myself.
Other plans for 2010? Well simply to keep the weight off that I have lost and to think twice before starting a scrapbooking class or project - I still have soooo many unfinished!
Happy New Year to you all!
