Other uni news is that I've finally finished and submitted my geography assignment which felt like it took forever to complete! Father Christmas brought me a laminator and I had mucho fun with it making my resources for the assignment. It was actually quite therapeutic feeding the sheets through the machine lol! I'm wondering if I could make some mini clear albums with it? I stocked up on more laminate sheets yesterday anyway as I used all I had on the flash cards and games I made for my assignment! No rest for the wicked though, I have a history assignment due on the 11th. And it's a plain old essay style one too, no exciting imaginary teaching scenarios or resources to make :(
Everyone who know me knows that, in general, I'm not a very spontaneous person! However, when Lee and I get an idea in our head to do something around the house we do seem to have to do it straight away. I decided yesterday that the lounge was looking a bit tired and we could do with some new scatter cushions for the sofa, and within half hour we were trawling B&Q and Wickes for wall paper samples lol! I used to hate wall paper, but for a while now have fancied all these rich textured and bold print styles that are about. So tomorrow afternoon we'll be papering a feature wall in the lounge with a lovely brown and duck-egg floral paper. The lounge is already brown and cream, and the little injection of colour is all it needs for a fresh new look. We also picked up new cushions, which came to almost £60, a tad expensive when you're out shopping on a whim, but they are lovely and will help concrete the new scheme with what we already have in the room.
Here's a scrapbook page I made at the Pontypridd crop, it was for the crop challenge which was based on a sketch. It's another wonky and drab picture I'm afraid!! I already had the idea to scrap the woodland that surrounded where we lived as kids from the "We Dare You" book, and the sketch fitted the photos and papers I was planning to use anyway so that was fun! The photo flips out to reveal a mini book; I seem to have a bit of a thing for flaps and pull out books at the mo with my scrapbooking!!
Catch ya later xxx
