I gave the photo upload another try and here's the third notepad. Behave yourself in future, Blogger!!

And three new decorated notepads:
Except I'm only able to show you two of them because something's broken in Blogger and I can't upload any more photos!! This is just another of several problems my blog has experienced lately - grrrr! Maybe I'm not so chilled out any more!!! :(

The cute animals were punched from some patterned papers from my stash and of course I used up lots of scrappy strips!!
It was a quick but fun project for today!

As longtime fans of Mr Pellow, we like to indulge ourselves in his vocal talents (and his yummy, devilish grin!)whenever possible! The previous time it was the Witches of Eastwick; these dark, sexy roles suit him very well! So we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves; the cast all had fab voices and the music and effects were superb. Wibble!
From time to time I help out Himself's mum and her friend on their stall where they sell handbags, jewellery and scarves. Yesterday we were at a school gala day which was good fun, and today I did a stint at the Royal Highland Show! I've never been to this massive event before
so it was great to be involved and to soak up the atmosphere in between being very busy selling things! I couldn't believe how many people were there, and this was just one day out of four! I've gained some valuable insights into running your own business and the buzz of selling has got me itching for more!!!
So this next week, with a craft fair coming up, I'll be working my fingers to the bone, getting stock ready. Which means lots of paper-clipped bundles!
These ones are going to be bookmarks!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks!

It's great to see the sun shining today; I've had my hair cut so my head feels about 100kg lighter, I've got some new library books to look forward to and I'm assembling paper-clipped piles of scraps again! Bliss!!!

And soon I had some nice wee teabag gift cards!
Maybe they'll find a home now!!

And baby wording strips:
Now I'm off to undertake the main part of the assembly process, bows will be added in the morning and - voila! I love doing things like this!

The parrot's not my creation - he came with a sparkler in Himself's pudding at a restaurant - but it has put me in mind of some summery, holiday-themed designs so watch this space!

Result: A slightly emptier scrap box!
Sunday, 5 June 2011
So that on the night I don't have to think too much, I can just sit and listen to everyone discussing their medical conditions (!) whilst assembling the contents of my paper-clipped bundles!
Thursday, 2 June 2011
So I set about choosing some random pieces and turning them from this:
And finally this:
My mission in life, more than ever, is to work my way through that box until it is nearly empty (I say "nearly", as I don't think it will ever be completely scrap-free!).
Wish me luck!!

And, yes, the original designs were made using teeny tiny bits of paper! I'm sure making them brought on a bout of severe eye strain!!
And, continuing with the doggy theme, I've created some bookmarks and gift tags:
