Time flies

Well, on Thursday morning I managed to do a few cards to replenish gaps in the boxes at the local school - a couple of new home ones and also some more new baby cards (mainly because I like doing those). Yesterday I managed to get together two or three RAKs for people on CBC and ribbons for a swap on UKStampers.

I finished off a mother's day card (or should I say 'Mothering Sunday' card - that's what mum prefers, so that's what I put on it) at about 2.00 am this morning, when I couldn't sleep.

This evening I've managed to get done two commissioned Christening cards - a boy and a girl.

I've got a busy (non-crafting things) week coming up (mainly because it's the time to put together the church magazine) so crafting is going to have to take a further back seat than normal, but I'm sure I'll still find odd slots.

I need to seriously think about my CJ for CBC - the theme I chose is 'What a day!' and I still can't decide which day to pick - it could either be the kind of day that was special and happy, or one that was just the opposite. And, of course, I need to actually put together the cover, the rules, the sign-in pages etc - so that's a lot to do and it needs to go in the post on Monday 26 March.

Meanwhile I must do the 'chinese whispers' card for CBC - I am the first in my group, so have now got under a week to get it done - this must be a priority, because I want to do it sooner rather than later - not leave it till the last minute.

On Thursday afternoon I popped along to the (fairly) local craft shop to pick up my March copy of Making Cards and it so happened that they had just had delivery of the April copy, so I managed to get both at the same time (and a few other bits that I needed!). Yesterday I went to the new-ish Docrafts stockist (which is in the same sort of area as the other craft shop) and bought a few bits - really lovely lady who owns the shop and chats.

Things have really picked up locally - a stationers in Orpington now sells quite a range of craft items, so I paid a quick visit as I had to go into Orpington to get mum's flowers for mother's day.
