So what did you all do over your Easter holiday? As you know I was a little craft crazed last week with my easter baskets/cards/place names/wrapping etc so I thought a nice break would do me good. Maybe go to the movies, read the paper, reply to the 300 emails sitting folornly in the intray. I made a fatal mistake on Saturday - I went to the Kaisercraft outlet in Geelong. See the blue signs hanging over the bins? 50% off! say no more...
I had to get the mega Sunday lunch out of the way but then I basically took over the dining table with my glue stick and scissors and went into what my family calls 'the craft coma' for 48 hrs. I even made other people cook dinner for me so I could keep going.
I made a little photo book of all of Thom's train adventures I wont bore you all with the inside of the book - suffice to say there are lots of photos of a kid with trains.
I made finally made last years xmas book. A memento that is meaningless to all but my family but is so much nicer than just a memory stick.
Speaking of xmas, ahem, I admit these are for under this years tree for a certain young miss. Beck made the great suggestion of adding hooks and days of the week tags which I love (order in the chaos!)
I also decoupaged some place mats, these are just for us at home. Tip for you: I learnt many years ago that the very best sealer for place mats, trivets and trays is furniture wax. It smells for about a week but then it dries rock hard and with a matte sheen that is lovely and seemingly impervious to heat and water, much better than estapol. So I guess this is my idea of a holiday. With three days of meetings and phone calls and quotes and interviews I'm glad I took some time for some super dork home stuff. Can't wait for next weekend!
