I'm in the middle of a mess
a BIG mess
You see, I'm taking an online class over at Madness and Mess with Carole Brungar aka KiwiCarole (as in hails from New Zealand). So my worktable fits in quite nicely with Carole's blog title don't you think?
I have been having so much fun! One reason I like to take a class is it gives me focus when I'm feeling somewhat scattered and unfocused as I have been this summer. And Carole's class gives me time to play with all my bits and scraps of fabrics and lace.
Althoug it is still a WIP I thought I would show you a few of my finished signature pages as they sit on my worktable waiting to become a journal.
a pocket waiting for tags I still have to create
ready for some journaling
room for more journaling
So that's what is on my worktable now.
Here are some pictures of what previously came off the worktable.
Another transformed cigar box. Who doesn't love boxes?!
I've also been having fun with creating my own handmade flowers for embellishing
Oh, and those velvety leaves?
....from the store :-) ...aren't they gogeous!
Now I woudn't want to leave Mr. Shabby out of the picture because that man has been working hard at his own worktable...the kitchen table that is!
This is what is left of the BIG basket of peaches after he put up a dozen jars of peach jam.
And these babies came fresh from the garden. Some were magically transformed into jars of salsa,
and right now as I write, he is back in the kitchen cooking up the rest in pasta sauce that will also be put up for the winter. Perfect for quick meal nights. Gotta love a man in the kitchen! :-)
That's what's been happening around this shabby cottage lately. What have YOU been up to?
