Last week I mentioned a butterfly project I had made for Jessicas bedroom - well here it is, I finally got round to photographing it. A very simple project, just cutting loads of butterflys out of paper (I used paper from Crate Paper for this project)sticking them back to back and attaching them to string/ribbon. My string is actually DMC floss 6 strands and then crocheted in a chain stitch. I then attached each string of butterflies to jessicas lightshade via the wires.
It looks really cute in her room (which at the moment is just plain white) and adds a bit of interest - Jess loves it!
I was asked to make a wedding card this week and this is what I came up with - this card was inspired by a card on this post the shape of it more than anything.
My new laptop arrived on Tuesday, its so nice to have a new laptop that works at a great speed not being bogged down with all the crap that I download onto it!!
Running update - going well in the last two days I have had a personal best both days and am now up to 3.86k in 30 mins (and that includes warm up and down) Loving the intervals even if it nearly kills me. Total weight loss in 5 weeks = 0lbs. Yup I am pissed I am not gonna lie!! I am beginning to wonder if I have a thyroid problem, because I try and I try, I eat no more than 1500 cals a day (sometimes more like 1300-1400) and I exercise 5 days a week and walk the dog twice a day, if only I knew what my body wants from me.
