New Year Creations

Okay so this first one isn’t exactly new … just newly found … created at some point last year, I think I’d put it aside to add some journalling to it … not sure it really needs it now.

This next one uses yummy Webster’s Pages papers.

At some point before Christmas I’d had half a thought to apply for their design team … imagine that … being able to play with such gorgeous papers … imagine the layouts after a year of that! Of course that self doubting thing creeps in … there’s no way I’d be in with a chance for something like that in all reality. And, as it turns out, the time I’d set aside to work on a submission was completely wasted with whatever illness it was that had me moving no further than from the couch to the bed. At one point that determination returned strong enough for me to drag a chair over to my ‘standing’ height desk and I pushed papers around on this layout … but my cold clammy head just wouldn’t co-operate.

So … not sure if I can claim this to be my first layout for 2011 as it was technically started in 2010 … anyway, I’m grateful to be feeling well enough to scrap again now.

This next project also uses Webster’s Pages … it was an idea I’d had in mind partly for the design team thing but mostly because we still owe the Grandparents a Christmas present or two … and this little birdhouse has been hanging around for a couple of years waiting for the perfect inspiration to strike.

Lots of photos, I know, but I kinda like how it turned out and it’s been a while since I really enjoyed creating something like this … and it’s been a long while since I’ve felt like taking photos of the things I make … and it’s been a really long while since I’ve really felt the urge to create something, take photos and then blog about it. It feels good … maybe I’ll do more of that this year.
