So busy, no time for crafts

I've gone back to work this month, and I'm currently trying to readjust to my schedule. My body clock hates adjustments. I have Chronic Fatigue and so I need to sleep a lot, even half a days work takes a lot out of me.

Last term I was working 3 days a week with 4 days off, but this term its 5 full mornings in a Primary School and then walking home a mile and a half. Its absolutely shattering for me.

I've got so many crafts planned, but so little time to sit down and actually make anything. Which makes me sad. :(

A gift for a new baby

This week my cousin gave birth to a little boy. The crafter in me squeed and I knew I'd have to make something for them!

I decided to use Inchies again, as they are my current obsession. It was great fun plotting what was going to be in each square, and how many I'd actually need. I used Bristol Board, a Fine liner and my fabled markers.

The hardest bit was getting them all lined up in the center of the frame and then creating a border to be honest. It's still no perfect, but at the end of the day thats part of the magic of home made items.

I just have to post it now. I really hope that she likes it.
