Paper Cutting ...

Good Evening.

Once more I am doing this late ... Everyday I tell myself i am going to do my write up early and each day I get distracted with life.

Today I actually spent the morning/afternoon at my place. I was going to catch up on some rest time but instead I started sorting out my work room from 7.15-3.30. I am one of those lucky people who had converted my spare bedroom into my craft room when I moved into the house. But over a space of 10yrs the room started shrinking and all my stuff stopped fitting in there. So about a year ago I decided I needed to convert the dining room into my new craft room ... After all I can still have diner in there while I am crafting. I had cupboards put in the dining room a year ago and I had not been able to sort anything out due to my parents ill health. But today I feel content and happy I actually got some stuff moved. Hopefully I will be able to complete this task sooner than another year.

By 3.30 I was exhausted so got me a cup of tea and decided to finish my doodle from 2 days ago ... But was not motivated enough. I think I lost the flow of it. So instead decided to do some paper cutting which I had not done in ages.

I had a pattern designed for me that has my nephews and kids name on a tree that I have been wanting to do since the summer...


Unfortunately as I started quite late, I was not able to get a lot done ... I learnt, I do not like cutting circles and maybe cheating with different size eyelet hole maker would have been a better idea. However, here is how far I got ...

There is a great satisfaction in cutting the bits out with a scalpel instead of using my machine that would have done it for me automatically if I just scanned it in. Really enjoyed this little bit I did today and yet another thing to add to my uncompleted projects to be finished one day soon.

Lots of Fun, Love and Laughter Tina Cox


  1. Beautiful as usual, best part I liked is that you felt content and happy :-)
