Karens Vintage Mini.

Yesterday I received a  lovely email from Karen to let me know the mini album had arrived.
 So here is a video for you -
BE WARNED: 'tis a bit wobbly due to the fact I was too lazy to find the tripod.... (shame on me!)

After I had made it I added some more to the cover, photos below.

How are you getting on with your albums? July 2nd is the posting deadline so you still have loads of time! I am usually working up to the deadline but once I started this I couldn't stop so it was ready early for a change!

So, this is where i've been......

I've been missing from blogland for a bit, but I have been busy, busy!
Mainly I have been spending alot of time with my Mum & Dad, he is not well and memories must be made.
(any good wishes gratefully accepted for him - x)

Those of you who know me well know about my book addiction. I read alot, I belong to a book club so I have one book a month to read but I usually have two or three on the go at once (sometimes if you mix all the stories up you get a GREAT story!) But I have just finished "This I Know" by Susannah Conway, it is the most beautiful book about how she found herself again through photography after a tragic loss (warning: tissues required!!)

This months bookclub choice was "False Impression" by Jeffrey Archer - I chose it, its the first of his books i've ever read and it is unputdownable!!

I got an invite to join Things Arty, so I have spent hours uploading images and discriptions of prints (there are still notebooks, keyrings and randomness to go!)
Its a bit like Etsy, but I havent' sold alot on Etsy, so i'm trying this aswell!

I am in love with 5x7" canvas - it is so quick to paint these little pictures, I'm building up quite a collection! I'm hoping to get them made into greetings cards........ More on that later!!

And of course I have been working on my mini book for this months swap, Karen if you are reading this, here is a sneaky peek of your album!! the postal deadline is July 2nd, but the theme was Vintage so once I started I couldn't stop!  A few more tweaks and it will be in the post on Monday. I might even do a little video to share it once Karen has received it.

So, that is all my news, its lashing rain and my car is in for a service today so I am housebound.... oh dear, what a pity....... painting, here I come!!!!
