My life has been in a state of flux for a while now, but I am starting to settle and find my feet again. Unfortunately I don’t currently have my craft materials with me, but I’m starting to make up a basic kit of bits and bobs to keep my papercrafting juices flowing so-to-speak. As I travel a lot at the moment, I thought it best to do something similar to using a SMASH book. I ordered a SMASHpen (pictured above), and some Moleskine Cahiers, and am going to start journalling. I’m not incredibly arty, but I’m hoping to use some craft materials (I may have ordered the July kit from Simon Says Stamp!!), and various ephemera, souvenirs, photos etc to illustrate my life as and when I have the time to. Choosing something like this means I can pop my bits and pieces into my handbag and craft as and when I can.
I do feel inspired, even moreso after the Brighton Bloggers Bash (which the lovely Lauren blogged about!) and meeting such lovely people *waves to new found friends*. Which reminds me, I bought a voucher for an intro to crochet course at the BBB venue (Super+Super HQ) via LivingSocial… I’m not sure if they will realise what they are in for once I get my hands on a hook….!
