I Lied...

What am I like? More than a month since I updated my blog... I should just give up, except I like using this as a record of my projects as well as saying hello to folks out there! Let me just do a quick update on my scrappy projects, which take up most of my creative time, though I am knitting, crocheting and sewing still on a weekly basis!

I have been published again in September Enchanting Creations magazine, which is associated with my favorite online scrapbooking store, Flying Unicorn...

The themes this month were Famous People from History (Jane Austen layout) (page 13)

and Steampunk creations (matchbox) among others... (page 21)

I was so excited that both my entries were chosen for the magazine this month, my last month's submission wasn't selected. I find it a great challenge to turn in an entry each month, and hopefully some months they'll be published, some months not...it is a great way to learn!

I am always working on cards and projects for challenges on the Flying Unicorn shop forum... It was the first place I found that offered free worldwide shipping, lovely things to buy for my scrapping obsession, and some amazing artists to help me learn the ropes of my new hobby... There are generous prizes for several challenges each month, and so I always try to do as many entries as I can... Here are a number of my cards, layouts and other projects that I have done since last I updated...

I'll take some photos of my quilt I just finished hand piecing and some of my knitting and crocheting projects soon...ish!

One thing I did actually do was start losing weight...joined Weight Watchers again and down 16 lbs!!
