Mini Envelope Album '' Life is Bliss''

Mini Envelope Album ''Life Is Bliss''

Made with Envelopes, the longest envelope measures 7 inches and the smallest measures 3 inches.
8 pocket pages in total.
The paper line is used was Melody Ross designer collection by G.C.D Studio's.
I have titled the album ''Life is Bliss''
This was one of the quickest and easy Albums i have done, a total of 3 and a half hours and it was complete, when i say complete i still have to come up with a better closure than the 2 crocodile clips i am using at the moment.
I used the small tags from a bundle of tags i had already made, so that saved a lot of time.

Today I made 2 cards, I don't normally make many cards, so I thought this year I will try making more.
On both cards i used Stamped Images, I coloured them in using metallic pencils, used distressed ink around the egdes, added some lace on one card, IAmRoses, Wild orchid crafts flower, leafs, I stamped a few sentiments and added them to the cards.


I baked 2 cakes today too, 1 banana bread cake & A lemon drizzle cake, there not actually me :( they are for my FIL as he just loves cakes.......Below is the banana Bread

A new year and new beginnings for me

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

I haven't made any new year resolutions as I probably won't keep to them, But I am making changes and I have completed one of them already, I work in a theater ( performance) I have a few positions there, I clean and i am also a duty manager, i started working there as a cleaner 2 years as i had just moved to a new location and had to find a job, there wasn't much work going about at the time. so when the cleaning job came up i went for it, i was lucky enough to get the job, after only a few weeks there i was asked if i would like to do some casual duty manager shifts , which i thought ''Great'' extra work equals extra money! :) so as time went by the Duty manager shifts got regular and i continued doing both jobs.
Last summer the theater got hit bad with all the Arts councils budgets being cut and within a few months everyone's job was at risk of redundancy, luckily and thankfully My Jobs where safe, sadly we lost a few fantastic members of staff, so my shifts increased, i was doing the cleaning, the duty managers shifts, Front of house and box office, not to mention Bar shifts & working in the coffee house we have on site. so the hours got longer, they varied from day work to evening work and also a lot of weekend work.
All this has had a big impact on my family and my sleeping pattern.
So over the christmas holidays i have decided to pack in the cleaning job and just do all the other jobs i do. I have also requested my hours be more of a 9-5 job with the occasional evening and weekend work.
so that's one thing i have achieved so far this year.

I also want to spend more time crafting, last year i started so many projects and never finished them, so i plan on getting them all finished in the next month. I love crafting, its such a rewarding hobby, I also love watching You tube and watching all the wonderfully talented ladies and guy's on there.
I want to try and do more YT videos and maybe even a tutorial or two! that should be a laugh if nothing else lol

I want to get backing into baking and making my own chutneys & Jams, I find cooking or baking very rewarding too.

I am not going on a diet this year because that's always a massive fail, so instead i am just going to eat healthier and try and get more exercise.

And last of all i am going to try and Blog more often, it may not always be on crafts but i am going to try.

Hope i haven't bored you all with my rambling lol
