So, I took a brief hiatus over the festive period. I mean, I think I deserved it, what with all the baking and the job-searching and the interviewing. And the eventual rewards that were reaped (a job, people... I got a job, in case you forgot!). So I had a lovely Christmas and an awesome New Year just chillaxing, maxing, relaxing all cool with friends and family.
And now it's back to work. It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new mother-humping year... and it's January. And January... means one thing: Thank you cards!!
My lovely friend Holly had helpfully gifted me the new Cath Kidston craft book Make! for Christmas. As she knew that I was all about the crafting, having recently got into knitting (now that Christmas is over, and all my secret Christmas knitting projects are complete, I am now able to blog about my new favourite thing to do! Expect a post all about it very soon!).
It was all I needed for inspiration for actually MAKING my OWN Thank You cards this year.
I gathered up a bunch of old Christmas and birthday cards, and used the patterns given in the book to trace and transfer to make my own cards.
It was really easy and fun to do and I did four cards in one afternoon. Luckily, four is all I needed!
All that's left for me to do now is to write them, address them and send them off!
