This is what is on my mat ...it is inspired by Ann at ' Cupboard Crafter' who used a matchbook to display extra photos on a LO. She kindly passed on the instructions to me and I thought I would have a go.
This is my first attempt and I have used it as a sort of brag/memory book for my sons partner ...just so she can see and be proud of how the boys have grown and developed under her wonderful care. I have to change the cover as over zealous scoring caused it to now show signs of splitting ...thank goodness I hadn't decorated it yet.
Now for what is on my actual working area ....
Even more chaos... the other half is worse ...you see I didn't tidy up after all those LO's ...I just threw myself into the match book making. Can you see my little dustbin on the table ...had to get something with a lid as the cats kept stealing and eating the plastic back of the DST and it was causing them problems..
I promise I will tidy up tomorrow as I will be away visiting my wonderful and edible grandsons this weekend ... not forgetting my son and Emma too lol
If the boys had been born on their due date, they would have been a year on the 14th. Emma says they are on the move now and that gates have had to be put up. Anytime soon they will be likely to take their first steps I would guess. Cant wait to see them ...and of course ...take photos.
I'm off to make 'Spag Bol' ... I like to make it early and let the flavours infuse .... then add some fresh Oregano at the end, when I reheat it and cook the pasta. I love it when I have fresh herbs and there are new tender bay leaves on the bush. Every time I make it it is different ... I really should write the recipe down when it is a good one ...but then variety is the spice of life lol
Take Care xx
Have replaced the damaged cover so I thought I would show you the finished Match Book
Will post on my return. xx
