We are supposed to be 6 weeks into spring but the weather here in Southern Tasmania has been very winter like. We have had to light a fire 3 nights in a row and the mountain (Wellington) had a big layer of snow on it yesterday morning. Despite the cold snap the garden is still looking very pretty and when the sun does shine the bees are going about their spring time work. I am very pleased that I still have my tomato's under cover as Sunday we experienced a massive hail storm at Brighton. Fingers crossed that we get some more spring weather soon.
One of our favourite weekend treats is fresh bread from our local bakery. An extra special treat is curried egg and chive sandwiches which is what we had last weekend.
Have you ever tried them? I use fresh chives, butter, curry powder and a small squirt of mayonnaise in mine.
It is delicious - Especially on freshly baked bread.
With the weather so bad over the weekend I decided that it was time that I had another play with my paper craft supplies. They usually live packed away in these 6 striped boxes so when I get them all out I usually like to leave them out for a week or so to make the most of it. They are still out but I can assure you that my work space does not look this tidy anymore.
I have collected lots of nice supplies over the years - I have some nice stamps and some lovely punches.
I have never taken a paper crafting class but prefer just to dabble away in a decoupage type of way.... My best friend is Modge Podge - I use it on just about everything.....
My notebook supplies in my gift box were very low so I had fun putting some more together - I think I have finally mastered the art of making it all stick properly to the plastic notebook fronts. I like to have lots of little gifts like these on hand all of the time to pop into gift parcels.
If you get my newsletter I have shared some lovely sites to download these types of images free over the past few issues - You can just print them out as you need them. I have also just about finished some large note books which look really cool - I am just waiting for the modge podge to dry. I will be giving one away in my newsletter this week as well as some more free sites to download some gorgeous images.
I have a lovely collection of old music paper which I have found on my treasure hunting days - It is great for paper crafting and I am even covering an old frame with some at the moment.
It is my current work in progress. What about you, Do you dabble in paper crafting too?
