So you’ve all probably heard about the magical social ‘scrap-booking’ website thing called Pinterest yeah? I put off getting an account because at first it didn’t really interest me. However after browsing the site for a while I caved in and decided to get on the waiting list and see if it was worth my while.

Tis the season! It’s a shame Christmas only lasts one day, should be a week-long holiday! This has probably been one of my busiest Christmas’s because I’ve been putting together little handmade Christmas creations for everybody ^_^.
I’ve been busy making cards and getting everything ready for Christmas however I also had time to make a gift tag for one of my dear friend’s birthdays!
I’ve been busy making cards again! This time I had two special occasions within a week of each other – Father’s Day and my anniversary with the boyfriend. Both of these dates totally crept up on me so I didn’t have a lot of time to make them ^^;. I think they both came out alright though!
The other weekend I attended a very unique type of party - an Unbirthday party! Conceived in the wonderful imagination of my friend, everyone bought some of their favourite cake and a small gift to be given out randomly during the night. And when it comes to gifts, it’s time for me to make a card, or in this case a gift tag.
Because I didn’t know who would be receiving my gift, I wanted to create something that reflected the theme of the night. I went with a teapot based off those seen in the Disney Alice in Wonderland movie.
Despite the overcast weather and the urge to sleep in, I managed to pull myself out of bed on Sunday and head over to the Brisbane Finders Keepers Markets being held at the Old Museum. I’ve seen lots of people talking about their great finds and purchases at these markets online so I decided to go and check it out for myself.
I’ve been pretty busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to get back into my anatomy drawing but in the meantime I’ve been making cards for my sister and mum whose birthday are within a week of each other! I wanted to make each card about items they really like ^_^.
Whenever I get the chance and there’s enough time, I always try to make cards for people’s birthdays. For me, making one is a little more personal than a standard Hallmark card and it also gives me an excuse to practice drawing. On Sunday it was my Nan’s birthday and I wanted to make a card that tested my skills a bit more.
