Wednesday

Hi everybody, hope you are all fit today. I had a lazy day again yesterday, just here at home with lots of reading and crafting. And somebody must have eaten loads of chocolate again, the packet's empty! I hope I can soon get out and about again! My foot feels almost normal as long as I don't wear shoes, but today I hope to get out to the post office at least, as I want to post off the postcards I made for the Inspiration Avenue swap. I have made some mail-art envelopes for them:


And I finished off some more vintage postcards. I made more than the five I needed for the swap, so have a few extra for sending to other people. They have turned out very grungy this time, but I like them that way! Three more are still in progress, I hope to finish them today.





And here are the 'backsides':


I have crafted and/or painted several things lately using stencils from the Crafter's Workshop. It says on the packaging to send a mail and show what you have made with their products, which I did, and had some things showcased on their blog this week. Here is the link if you want to see: The Crafter's Workshop Blog
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
