I am sad. Why? My postman did not bring any parcel yesterday. Infact the only post he left was not mine either.It was for another person in another address! I am hoping he gets my parcels today atleast.
OK,my post today is to show you my take on Mojo Monday sketch #119.
This is the sketch.
And here is my take on the sketch:
When you want to use it, just open the box, remove one side of the CD box, flip it over and attach it. Then slide the calendar card for each month on it. Leave the rest of the cards on the box behind. Its an awesome New Year gift. Simple and easy to make and importantly functional too.
I have 3 more to make. It will all be different designs and I will definitely show all of them when I finish.
I am melting today. The temperature today is 42 degree celcius and windy. Extreme UV and catastrophic fire danger warnings issued. Hope there are no bushfires this season.
I got to drink some cold water. Its hot over my throat and eyes are burning.
Hope my postie brings my parcels too!
You all have a great day
I hope all of you are excited making last minute shopping and getting prepared for Christmas.
I will do a quick post today.
Today, I am blogging my take on Mojo Monday #118 sketch. You can find the sketch here.
Here is my take.
I have been recently forgetting to do many things. Sometimes it is an entire task, sometimes its part of a task. I don’t have dementia lol! But I just have a lot to do on my plate. With kids around, the noise level is so high at home at the moment. Also the weather is very hot and tiring. I get anxious and then I forget. I then have to make a second or third trip to complete the task.
Therefore I started to write down what I want to do each day. For example, my shopping list, things to do each day at home (planned to clean one corner each day), combining trips so I can do two or more jobs at the same go etc.I found it very useful to write down and then tick when I finish.Its a bit of work but atleast saves me so much time and effort. I recently bought the “things to do pad” from PTI, along with other stuff, of course. I decked it up today. Its going to be my things to do pad which will be on my kitchen table. Because thats where I go the first thing in the morning. I then quickly write down when I have my coffee.
I also think I do spend more time surfing on the internet. So thats some thing I will have to reduce too. It will be my new year resolution, although I have started spending less time on my laptop.OK, I think I am talking a bit too much which means I will be spending more time on the laptop. lol!!! Before I go I have a card to show you. I made using Razzle Dazzle Stamp set from Stampin’ Up!
I took a while to get the settings right for the printer to print on the cardstock and then ended up not printing a tiny bit at the beginning. I, therefore traced the front of the template again on the cardstock, cut it out and glued it on the front. Therefore I was also able to score the cardstock and get some extra dimension.I decorated it using some tiny flowers on the window planter. In Nicole’s tutorial, she has not glued the roof on to the house. So its more like a box. She has a packet of seeds in them. I decided to glue the roof because I wanted to hang them. It was tricky. Took a while to stick together.Maybe for the next one, I will use brads to hold the roof to the house base.I think it could make a nice Christmas ornament too when made using Red and Green combination. One birdhouse for each family on the tree!

Have a great weekend.
Yesterday, I also cleaned up my scrapbooking cupboard. Chucked out a lot of stuff. So now my cupboard is clean and tidy and I have 2 empty shelves to fill up! lol! Now that means????????? Some awesome stuff is on the way from far far away. Can’t wait…
And most importantly my sewing machine is on the table all set to go whenever I need them. Saves the hassle of getting the machine out of the cupboard, out of the box, setting it up before sctually sewing. I am going to do some sewing today, Yay! I just hope the thread does not break in the middle sewing.I hate it and having to thread it again and again. oh! Any tips?
I made a few cards as well. I suddenly realised, I still have to make 8 more Christmas cards. So here I go again, making more Christmas cards. Here are a few I made yesterday.
I also made this card for the third Elite Challenge, the stamp set challenge. The stamp set to be used is from the new Summer Mini catalogue called “Hello Again”
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip and So Saffron
Ink: Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red
Stamp set: Hello Again
Accessories: Gingham red ribbon, Versamark, Clear embossing powder, Heat gun, Corner Punch and Playground buttons
I think I had a busy day yesterday after a dull beginning. Hoping today is more interesting.
See you soon with more to share
