Whew, this week was mostly about getting wee bits and pieces done before going away on Monday.  I had to resign myself to the fact that I just wasn’t going to be able to make all the bags I’d planned, and that was okay, so I switched focus, and now have more travel handmade items than you can shake a stick at!  I was all about using up the ‘good stuff’ this week, I’m really trying to work on that this year.  On Sunday afternoon I handed my machine over to my gran, as it’s having a spa day or two while I’m away, and the shop was picking it up from her, so that was effectively the end of what I could achieve before going without having to go up on top of the wardrobe for Baby Brother, and really, I needed a bit of an enforced rest…

Finishes This Week

The yellow panel from last week united with the cool Giraffe panel from Cori Dantini’s latest line, Hello World, and became a bag.  I’d show you a photo, but I’ll give it its own post later this week, so here’s a sneak preview, isn’t it pretty? ;o)

Smash book cover – to be honest I stole the overall idea for this book rather shamelessly from Cori at Let’s Eat Grandpa.  I saw a photo of the inside of a book she’d made to go to Snap Conf, where she’d washi taped business cards that she’d collected.  It seemed a great idea, but frankly I couldn’t live with just a plain cover, so I just had to make one…

Then the washi tape needed a wee bag to go in so I didn’t lose it:

Then my business cards needed their own wee bag:

Then I needed a pencil case to hold the coloured pens for taking notes in the book:

Then my old phone pouch shed its button and all but marched to the bin in disgust, so it needed to be replaced (IG pic, sorry):

Then I needed a lanyard and forgot to take a photo, so you’ll just have to trust me on that!

In Progress This Week:

Don’t be ridiculous, what else do you think I could have done?!
