I HAVEN'T BEEN SCRAPPING LATELY BECAUSE...
I haven't been scrapping lately because I have found another creative outlet. (It's OK - it's just a small diversion - I'll be back scrapping real soon.) It's these hearts.
I was thinking about swap pins for Crafting Connection 2006. I know that's not 'til August but making swap pins can take a bit of time. Last year I made about 30 little tag pins that were OK (just!). I swapped about half of them. So this year I thought I might do something a bit flasher. So I designed some cute little beaded heart brooches (which are actually brooches you'd wear - with absolutely no details about me or Crafting Connection on them). The first time I wore one was yesterday. Someone admired it so I took it off and gave it to her. Anyway - they take ages to make. They're sparkly and blingy and contain semi-precious stone chips and little glass beads. And they're fiddly and I'm not fiddly. And now that I've made 9 I'm thinking there is no way I can make 30-40 of these and then give them away to any old person. Maybe I won't make swap pins at all. Maybe I'll just throw some of these brooches into my bag and those of you who stop by my blog and who are going to CC2006 can sidle up to me and say - "Can I have a heart?" And I'll give you one.
