This week has been a muddle of happy crafting mess...
Yes, I bought them specially. I even ended up decanting apple juice into bottles so I could use the cartons because we just couldn't drink it fast enough!
I know the whole point of - ahem - upcycling these tetra-paks is to use something that would otherwise be thrown away. But hey, I had a deadline to meet and that will have to serve as my excuse!
The theme seems to be birds this week. The juice cartons are being transformed into bird feeders (which I thought was a completely unique idea of mine - until I googled it!) and I'm making a plaque with birds on too (also for Craftseller)...
I think maybe I'm still on the tail end of Hurricane Christmas (it certainly felt like a mad whirlwind - hand making gifts to order has its drawbacks at this time of year, and people still carry on ordering after the big day). But I'm sure it will all slow down soon enough.
Being so busy means I haven't yet made plans for the new year. There is something new and quite exciting happening though! I've been asked to be a regular contributor to a new blog from Craftseller magazine. The party has started without me over at Craft-seller's new website, but I'm sure I'll catch up soon (I warned them I'd be arriving late: I knew that hurricane was on its way!). The website is already looking really good, with lots of input from lots of different people. Be sure to check it out!
Please leave your link below and I will pop by as soon as I can. We have visitors staying at the moment, some of whom are quite small and I don't see as often as I would like ... so forgive me if I get distracted!
