Wow...what a mess I have made.
I am going to try & justify it by saying I am still poorly & just don't have the energy to tidy up.
Today it was a choice between doing the laundry & cooking dinner or cleaning up my crafty mess, you can see which choice lost.
I have to clear up in the morning & get organised, as I can't find anything I am looking for amongst the mountain of mess!
This project is on hold until I can get more papers anyway.
I have made stupid mistakes on it & need a break. Should never have started it whilst being ill. My concentration levels are serious lacking.
I may (when I have a clear surface), start something new. Something simple & quick. No clue what that could be right now. Depends how I feel after the clean up.
If today was anything to go by I will be taking a nanna nap! Out cold in the chair this afternoon catching flies or so I was told.
Thats it for tonight it's late & I am shattered.
Catch ya later special Llama's

After a few very rough days (I have pleurisy & pneumonia), I actually felt well enough to craft a little.
It has been a hectic few days as we have had a new boiler installed, which caused a lot of mess; but thankgod for my niece Gemma who has come two days in row & sorted everything out. She has been an absolute star.
I have been very good & actually listened to the drs advice & am getting lots of rest. I am extremely gratefull for the painkillers I was prescribed. I couldn't cope without them. Every breath is incredibly painfull.
I am improving a little every day so am very happy about that. I am missing all this sunshine though.
Am hoping tomorrow I will feel up to finishing an album I was working on before I became poorly. I would like to get it finished as I want to get started on a few more ideas I have.
Thats it for now, I am too tired for anymore. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend....until next time
Catch ya later Special Llama's.

It is 10.30pm & I am sat prepping mini albums ready for tomorrow.
Nic wants one for her mother-inlaws birthday, so I have constructed it ready for her to decorate. We are getting together tomorrow to craft (& drink wine!).
I was also hoping to get the prep work done for a new baby mini but I am just too hot & tired to do anymore.
I am going cross eyed so time to call it a night.
Until next time special Llamas.....happy crafting.

This is a very simple mini, no fussy cutting & not many fancy foldouts or tags, but I think it works well. There is a large pocket at the end of every page, containing single & book photo mats, so plenty of spaces for photo's.
I kept all the pages black as I was running low on the papers & wouldn't have had enough to cover every page.
Before I share the pictures I am going to have a little moan about the cost of postage. To post this album & a few cards & little note books it cost £5.90! I was gob smacked. The box wasn't heavy it was the size. I am going to have to charge more in the future to cover the postage. Ok moan over, here are the pics!
This is a fold out book....It has a magnetic closure. I forgot to take a picture!
It is a real shame that I didn't have enough patterned papers to cover each page, but I figure they could put photo's & journal etc on all the blank bits.
Will be making a few more mini albums over the weekend & will also be making another lightshade & hot air balloon, so lots to share again soon.
Until then, catch ya later special Llama's!

I thought I would share a pic of some butterflies I have been making.
These are to go on my wall & tie in with the book paper theme....( it was a big book!).
I have made around 25 of these so far....alot lol, but in my head the finished design looks great, if it doesn't then I have lots of butterflies for future projects!
