Busy busy busy...

Decided last week I HAD to finish my 2014 PIF list before the end of January.
I still had 3 of the original 5 to do(because I is easily distracted by others and these 3 were polite and patient)
So here is pretty Petal the purple Pixie...
 (her pendant is a hand painted abstract flower meadow)
 She will be going to live with a friend in the UK.
Next I wanted to make something with the "felted panel" I made earlier this year(cripes is it still January???)
So the gift I am sending to North Carolina is a bag..made from scratch! made up as I went along...even though I have books telling me how to do it properly* I'm sure the lady recieving it will forgive the odd wonky stitch, still getting used to using my machine :D

(Haven't decided what the final recipient will be receiving yet)
So while I'm "thinking" I need a distraction

It is free to join and easy to follow 1 item and 1 inspirational quote per page (so far lol)
The hardest part so far was choosing a journal to work in!!

I settled on this one. Board cover already pretty cool, and it was attached by a ribbon so I could remove it before starting to get messy..(Is missing my messy!!!)
I am writing the quotes and prompts on the inside cover too
 I am not going to bombard you with "step by step" images as I'll be doing a page a week as well as other stuffs, and you can ask if you want to know how :D I will just post the finished page and the original quote(which I am not using on my pages, just being inspired by)

 Page 01 "Be your own Goal Keeper"
 Page 02 "The beginning is always today.." Mary Shelley
Page 03 "I found I could say things with colour and shapes that I couldn't say any other way" Georgia O'Keeffe
There was another prompt with each page , but you should pop over to the original blog to check that out
*Now...what to make for someone who already makes everything* .....ooow...I know :D
Enjoy :D XXX
