Thank You – to everybody whos left comments on my previous blog posts and also to you all for popping over to have a look at my blog.
Well all the bobbing up and down, to sort this and move that, that I’ve done so far of “The Big Tidy Up” has caused my damaged leg to swell more than it’s usually swollen, so I’ve had to take a few days with less bobbing about.
So Tuesday I sorted my Promarkers and Metallic markers. I’d got more markers than I had marker wallets, so I’d ordered a new one. So now I’ve got a space for all my markers (until I’m tempted by new colours) and have them sorted into colour groups.
Wednesday I found a carrier bag of old Christmas cards, that I’d put to one side earlier in the year, when I re-started tidying. So I went back to bed with my leg elevated and concentrated on cutting the cards down into toppers to re-cycle to make new cards to sell at the chapel this coming weekend. Quite a few of the old cards had come from members of the chapel for me to use like this to recycle and sell at the chapel to raise funds for the Sunday School. The non-recycled cards I sell the Sunday School gets 33% of every sale.
And Thursday I started on the job of making the re-cycled Christmas cards up. Didn’t finish making all the toppers I’d created up into cards, but did manage to make 28. It’s a good thing I’d already made a good start on “The Big Tidy Up” and had already found several of the packs of different size and coloured base cards I’d ordered over the year when they were on special offer. It meant I could quickly put my hand on them to make up these cards. You can see them below.
I think I should have remembered to change my background when taking the photos of the cards with a dark backgrounds they don’t show up the best against a black background. Some of the pictures also show a bit of light and shade mottling because a couple of branches were waving outside the window and interfering with the light shining on the cards.
