Firstly I need to apologise to the lovely people in my Sal group and to other crafting friends. I have been extremely quiet of late but this unfortunately has not been from choice. We have had major problems with our internet connection which has been frustrating to say the least. I would cheer as I got into my blog – hurray now I could go and see what everyone had been up to – but as I pressed the link to first the first person on the list – bang wallop and CRASH – down it went again. Tuesday the engineer has finally found the time to visit – waiting a week for an engineer is just not good customer service SKY, and its certainly doing my blood pressure no favours. He asked what the problem was and we said we thought it was the modem, he looked at everything and said nothing wrong with the modem, its an outdated phone connection, he then changed the phone connection, got everything working and off he went with a cheery wave. Hurray we though and as hubby scurried off to his office and rushed up to my craft room to catch up on everything. Twenty minutes later hubby was once again on the telephone to Sky, and I am sure I saw steam coming out of his ears. Several more calls throught the day and eventually they agreed to sending out a new modem. It arrived this morning and I have spent far too long on the computer today in an attempt to catch up with my mail alone. It is wonderful though, and I do wonder how we managed before we had phones in the house, portable phones to take out with you and most of all internet.
What has made all the above even more frustrating was that my papercrafting mojo decided it was off to the fields to play with my stitching mojo. I was keeping up with the challenges over at MOCCEW but that was the limit to my crafting. In the last few days though the weather has been much cooler and we have even had some rain, which meant the mojo’s had to return home. I finally finished a face on Kokeshi dolls and whilst I am still in the mood have decided to move back to my SAL stitching. Kokeshi is now looking like this and moving steadily closer to the end. The paper crafting mojo was a little more reluctant which gave me a good excuse to sort out stash and get my craft room tidy again. Whilst doing this I found a number of rather small cards. These are just a few of them but they were all either 5 x 5 inches or 5 x 3 inches.Did I have toppers small enough for these. I did find a few so decided to try and get these tiny ones done and see if I could tempt that naughty mojo back. So here is what I made :-
by this time I had ran out of small toppers and couldn’t be bothered to go and search for more so I decided to used one of my new stamp sets to do three last CAS cards – for the none card makers CAS stands for clean and simple.
I was fairly pleased with the assortment and they now all have inserts and are in my charity box. I am happy to see the mojos home again and hope to have more to share with you soon.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and read my random ramblings.
