Well, I am pleased to say that I managed to get through last night without any calamities, like bumping into the bathroom door-frame in the middle of the night. I still have some bumps and bruises, and rather resemble a cross between a panda and a unicorn, but it will pass. And I sincerely hope that my little series of calamities is slowly passing.... Enough is enough!
I had a nice, lazy day yesterday. Apart from a little bit of crafting, I watched the crows and ravens gathering in the tree in the back garden, first there was just one, then more and more came, and it looked for all the world as though they were holding a Hitchcock Memorial Service there. I think they were waiting for me to go away from the window so that they could empty the bird feeder.... But it was fun watching them.
But I did manage to make a tag and a mail-art envelope. I forgot to take a picture of the envelope before it had been filled, so the photo is not very good.
The tag is for the GC 123 Challenge over at Gingersnaps, and the theme is *Ravens*. The tag has been sprayed with distress inks in wild honey, spiced marmalade and forest green. I stamped leaves using Lavinia stamps in barn door and black, and then added some fabric leaves to give depth. The large raven has been stamped using a LaBlanche stamp, and then I added the pumpkin and small leaves at *ground level*. The smaller raven has been printed onto acetate and placed up in the leaves. I used ribbons in orange and green, and a skull as a charm. I think this tag will be called *Alas, poor Yorick!* in memory of Hamlet in the graveyard. The lovely earrings next to the tag are the *Dia de los muertos* ones that Donna made for me some time back; they accompany me a lot!
Then I spent the rest of the day sorting out papers and letters ready to file them away, but didn't get very far with them, the piles seemes to ge growing and not decreasing!
Hope you all have a nice day today, take care, stay creative, and thanks for visiting!
