September 1st and some crafty makes

Wow. September. I can't believe it's time to turn another calendar page. 

I didn't do great in August. I was aiming for 30 books, I managed 26. Sigh. To be honest, the last couple of days I haven't really looked for any more to donate. I shall make an effort to find some more. The 'stuff' is getting to me again. I was doing so well on my craft room and then I started creating again and stopped sorting. I need to work out a balance. I haven't been doing too bad listing on Ebay, but it's working out where to put the things that are up for auction. I have Mum's habit of putting something somewhere safe only to forget where I put it. For now, I have them in a small cabinet, but that will have to be moved once cooler weather comes as it is in front of a heating vent. I am doing ok on the meal planning. There's room for improvement. 

Here are some of the crafty makes I've been doing

A little Halloween mini album

I really enjoy making these. They aren't too difficult to make. I find them relaxing. I just don't know what I'm going to do with them lol. At this rate, I'm going to have to do a craft fair or something. 

As I did the last one today I'm using that as my Day 244 Things That Make Me Smile. I am beginning to find the joy in crafting again. 


  1. Your mini albums are so cute! Maybe you can start selling them on ebay, along with the other stuff!

  2. I think 26 is brilliant - well done you! xx

  3. I'm so glad you are back to crafting as I think your cards are always so good. I was never happy with what I made which is why I'm more or less giving up card making

  4. I love that album - it's so adorable!

    I hope that the crafting helps you refuel. I think that you've been running on fumes for a while. Refuelling is important.

    Also, important - I love the way you can look at things and see a picture or a card and bring together insight and vision. I have such respect for people who can look at a landscape and take a picture that *works* Sending good vibes.

  5. I'd buy your black cat one... how much plus shipping to Missouri? I can send you PayPal $$
