A-Z of me

I made this A-Z of me last year, I think in October or November, worked a whole week non- stop to get it done. Once I started I couldn't stop, so I just kept going till it was finished. And my flat looked like I had been crafting more or less non-stop for weeks, chaos as far as the eye could see, and even more where it couldn't. (Well, actually, nothing unusual, is it?) And as I have been crafting a lot this week, too, doing nice, messy things with ink and embossing powders, it looks pretty awful.... But next week I really am going to clear up. (Well, I have to, because my friend Inge is coming to stay with me for a few days....) Reminds me of one of the sayings of St. Augustine, *Lord, make me holy, but not yet*. And for some reason I didn't blog it, so here it is now; enjoy, and have a nice weekend, whatever you have planned!
