Stands for Very Bad Blogger. Very bad indeed. Truth is, I just don't seem to have the time to blog and take part in HSMS. Much as I love taking the photographs, I just can't find the time it takes to comment on everyone else's shots, so it doesn't seem fair that I should play anymore. I may still post the photographs, but I won't be posting on HSMS. Maybe someday, when I have more time and energy, I shall start playing properly again.
I have, however, found some time to do the odd bit of crafting - surprise, surprise!
Here's an ATC I made as part of a permanently ongoing ATC swap on the forum I'm a moderator on.
We had to alter a Smartie tube and fill it with ribbons for another swap recently. Here is my effort .....
Another swap involved altering four beermats. These are my four .....
We had to decorate three luggage tags of a specific size. I brayered these, then stamped the images and covered them with Diamond Glaze, added brads and sentiments and finished off with ribbons.
Finally for now, we had to make a pocket tag book. I used my Bind-it-All to come up with this.
I've been off work for two days because I've been feeling really ill. Headache, stomach ache and feeling sick. Not nice. Today, my head is still thumping, but the sicky feeling has gone, thank goodness.
I'm also trying to lose some weight. I have never been this size in my entire life and I hate it. I lost 5 stones many years ago and managed to more or less keep most of it off until last year, when my thyroid started playing silly beggars. It apparently was overactive for a long time, so when they got it back to normal, although I wasn't eating any more than I normally did, it wasn't being burned up the way it was before, so it was just being stored as fat ........ LOADS of fat. Bucketloads. Lorryloads.
So, here I am trying to make a difference. I lost 6lbs last week (my first week), so that's a good start. Trouble is, I have SOOOOO much to lose, it's going to be quite a while before I (or anyone else for that matter) actually begin to notice.
