I've been crafting!!
Now a pal of mine, Kirsti last year followed Kate on her blog The kathryn wheel with a 365 Calendar challenge.
I was so impress with Kirsti's calendar that I decided that this year I would give it a go....but will I keep it up???
That is the question!
Anyway Kate recommended a Moleskine book (which I picked up from Amazon) and today I have finally got around to decorating January....not the best of starts, LOL.

I wanted to create a wintery scene for this month as any of you that live in the UK especially Scotland know,
we have had our fair share of snow in the run up to 2011.

Now just to fill it in!!

I have used:
Ink:  Distress ink weathered wood, faded jeans & tea dye.  StazOn white.
Alphabet:  Pink paislee berry blue and old letraset.
Dies:  Spellbinder nestabilities label 15.
Stamps:  Hero art dot pattern SU snowflakes and the swirls I got at Aberdeen crop one Christmas but I have lost the packaging, whoops!
Stickles diamond to finish.

I've really enjoyed getting all inky today but guess now I better go and tidy up and wash my hands, the boring bit!!
My craft room is so untidy at the moment....but I just can't be tidy and creative in the same space and I have tried.
Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday afternoon and happy crafting....I'm off for a sort out :(
