My Creative Space.


Last night I had a few of my girlfriends from high school over for roast dinner. It was very nice! I think we're going to make it a regular thing just to make sure we see each other often. Anyway. One of them brought me over some origami paper from last time she was in Japan, she remembered me saying how I wanted some ages ago. Isn't that nice? Now I have to think of a good project for it!

And, I started a Miss Allsorts yesterday too. You can see her instructions in the bottom right and a corner of her head in the bottom left. All that's left is sewing the two halves together, stuffing and hand sewing the gap. It'll be done in no time!

How's everyone's week been going?

I think the origami friend is definitely one to see again! And not just because she brings you things, but she obviously understands your creativity and your need to be creative! This is a real gift indeed.

That paper looks great. I bought some a little while ago to do with my kiddos, but I haven't gotten around to it. Today may be the day. :)

I have a weak spot for patterned paper - just love it!
I go to the local wall paper shop just to get their sample books & have lots of patterns! I love it! :)
