Belated New Year greetings to everyone!

It seems amazing that today is the last day of January; I really don't know where the time has gone since Christmas. I have been doing some crafting, but not as much play and development time as I would have liked. As always there were the much needed and urgent cards to be made for January and February birthdays, a selection of which are below

Whilst making these, I took time out to make 2 "Quintiles" for the Chocolate Baroque January tag swap. Instead of tags, this year we are using 5" square tiles for mixed media art. The January theme was Winter Wonderland. Unfortunately I am unable to show these as I forgot to photograph them before posting. I was eager to get them finished and into the post because of the disruption of the snow and the fact that I was almost on the deadline. I am really annoyed with myself as I like to keep a record.

In the midst of crafting, I have been trying to come up with a suitable way of displaying the 26 tags I received during the 2012 Tag swap challenge. The tags I received were wonderfully diverse and a credit to their creators, who are a very talented group of ladies. Sadly I have yet to hit on what I think is a good idea so I shall keep working on it. What I did come up with however, was a better way of storing my nestabilities and other dies rather than on magnetic sheets in a box. All will be revealed in my next post.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog, and happy crafting.
