Last year I set up a blog at Blogspot and then kind of bottled out of writing anything. In January I made a post about Christening 2011 the "Year of Craft" and promised to write regular updates on all my 'arting and crafting' adventures through the year. It's now November and although I have had a lot of fun this year and created some things that I would love to share, the pictures are still on my hard drive and the step-by-step instructions are still in my head . . .
Maybe creating this new site for my work will be just the catalyst I need to 'extract a digit' and get on with this - and fingers crossed for a facility to enable me to post my 2011 entries retrospectively too!
The photo below is me standing in my studio (my kitchen) holding my Crafting Manifesto for 2011, listing all the things I wanted to try. I have ticked some off the list, but, as always, I have been a bit over ambitious with my plans and will be carrying some over to 2012.
As we are fast approaching the end of the year, why not pause for a mo, put your thinking cap on too and consider what 'arting and crafting adventures' you want to take yourself on next year as well and join me? Maybe a bit of peer pressure and polite remindering is just what I need!
