Hearts & Rabbits

Yesterday was a busy and productive day, I managed to record and 2 videos onto youtube, and get the blog post up for the Use it Up Mini Book.

Once I had cleared up the aftermath from that, I managed to have a chat with my friend Deb on Skype, and catch up with what we’ve both been up to…

After that I sat down and had a wee play around with sticky back canvas I bought when I ordered my gel medium last week, and also make a couple of valentines cards for my Etsy shoppe, seeing as I found my Making Memories valentine paper that I had lost πŸ™‚
