Work in progress...

I'm back!
No posts from me over the weekend, working Friday, Saturday and Monday with a day out on Sunday to our local crop. 
As Miranda would say "such fun!"
Lots of crafting was had at our monthly crop with not only card making and scrap booking but sewing, beading and fimoing (if that is a word! :D).  This combined with oodles of cake and refreshments, giggles, chat, laughter and a wee boogie...what more could a girl ask for? 
Lots of Christmas cards being created but I decided to stick to decorating my letters....will I regret it as Christmas looms ever nearer?!  Time will tell. 
My picture today is a work in progress as the title suggests.  I have covered my cardboard letters with Kraft tissue paper by 7Gypsies...but now what to do?  Do I leave as Kraft and add some coloured embellishments or do I colour with my distress stains....decisions, decisions........?
I think I will have to have a good think about this one.


Mmmm.
On to today and I will be popping shortly to my local craft shop to pick up my kit so I can start and think about my demonstration coming up at the end of this month in Aberdeen.  I shall also be running a class in the afternoon so need to think about samples for that too.
Later today I have a few orders to make for a couple of friends and then a long awaited date with my iron and ironing board....note the boring job is last!

I hope you all had a super weekend.  I will hopefully be back tomorrow with a little something else.
Happy crafting!

Hi Erika, my you are a busy lady, I like your project as it is , but then again a few embellishments might suit or do you leave as is, decisions, decisions, glad it's you and not me.

Loving your letters so far Erika. Sounds like you've got a busy day ahead. Pity about the ironing. I only iron on Sunday evenings now. Lucky me, just 2 of us to iron for. When my 3 kids were all at home I used to wash and iron ever day!! I'm glad to see you've got your priorities right and ironing is at the end of your to do list!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time over the weekend.
Brilliant lettering Erika. I'm going to do something similar when my new grandchild is born, with their initial.
Thank you for your lovely comment on my Celestial Tag - Mo :0)
