Hope you are all safe and warm, and that those who are snowed in at home are finding time for crafting and doing nice things. It has been a strange day here - after a night of heavy rain and howling winds, today was very blustery, but mild and dry. This morning we had 15°, this evening at 6pm it was 17°, quite astonishing for the middle of February, so I was out walking a lot, enjoying being blown by the wind and warmed by the sun at the same time. I managed 16000 steps, so that was fine.
At Moo Mania the theme is old book paper. I have made a rather grungy mini key-ring book. The covers have been cut from corrugated card covered with book paper, the images inside are all printed onto paper, and are are from Gecko Galz. I cut the inside pages exactly to Moo size and the covers a little bit wider. I glued 2 pages back to back each time to give them more stability. I finished them off with some TH metal embellishments.
The sky was really wonderful, the clouds were racing over the sky, and really fascinating:
There are clumps of snowdrops and crocuses everywhere, they have opened up overnight.
And I found some more strange fungus growths:
I have never found one like this before, the colours were just wonderful. I climbed up a mossy bank to get the picture, and a little boy passing by with his Mum asked, 'Mum, what's she doing up there?' Mum answered, 'We don't want to know!' Well, at least you all now know what I was up to!
Stay curious, stay safe, have a great day, and thanks a lot for coming by!
