It occurred to me that one of my projects for the mag had a few extra angles that I thought were cute but due to the limited space weren't all able to be shown. My blurb for the project had instructions for making the 'cotton reels' but alas, these weren't visible so I thought I'd post them here!
Anyway, ever come up with an idea thinking you are some kind of creative mastermind or something only to buy some bo0ks & mags shortly after & discover very similar work??? I have seen so many gorgeous little decorated tins with even tinier tins inside them since I created this.... they seemed to all pop up in mags or books at a similar time and of course with the 3 month mag lag time, all were a unique idea until published! So funny! I have heard this happens all the time. I guess its inevitable when a new product comes out or whatever but these little tin things to my knowledge, aren't available like this so one had to put two and two together (or is that 6 into one!). I bought these little tins as part of a larger set (which I've had for years) and bought the larger tin by itself at ISC last year. Anyway, amusing nevertheless.
In other news.... my little person hit double figures today, 10 weeks, can't believe it. Of course sang the usual Happy Birthday about 50 times. She is growing incredibly, her head is kinda huge, what's with that? I think it must be her super large brain!!! She now cackles in her sleep, so cute but having said that, sometimes her bottom lip quivers in her sleep too and she lets out a few whimpers. Just so adorable, what could she possibly be dreaming about? This is the kinda thing that makes ME ponder reincarnation... ooh controversial subject. But where else could they get such emotional subconcious material from OR are they just recalling happy & sad feelings from the days events eg. raspberries on tum tum (cackles) and those few moments of upset whilst mummy was changing clothes & nappy (whimpers)? Actually, I think I recall that new babies don't access their deep subconcious memory during sleep, they are very light sleepers, so perhaps that blows the reincarnation theory out the water! Must be the tum tum action! OK, byeeeeee for now x
