playing catch-up...

there's lots to be blogged about and i am seriously behind in replying to queries and comments...

so, this week is about catching up on things...


on the weekend before last... miss j held her wonderful winter show, i had a lovely time making making tiny pink paper cranes to sell to raise money for chicks in pink...

i find the act of folding paper to be such a calming pastime and i was so pleased with how they turned out... they were surrounded by paper lanterns (martha stewart kids, summer 2005, page 28) and looked so pretty!


the weather was gorgeous, miss j's new work is simply divine (hurry up with that website miss j!) and i got to meet some lovely bloggers as well which was a real treat!

ps... thank-you all for your sweet blog birthday wishes :)

the cranes are wonderful. i remember folding about two hundred for a friends wedding three years ago. they looked beautiful but took some time. maybe an idea for my little girls room, we will see.
