Last Friday I posted my first animated picture, following along with some other crafty gals. But in my haste I forgot to mention that Animation Friday was started by Cintia from My Poppet. You really need to check our her blog and her store, and also have a browse through the blogs of the other participants in Animation Friday – these ladies are creating beautiful things and inspiring me to get crafty again.
The best thing about not having a store anymore is that I can make what I want when I want, and can have my evenings free if I just can’t be fagged doing anything but flipping through the latest Real Living (it beckons, on my bedside table right now).
Harri and I have had a few days together this week, as I only went back to work yesterday. One of her favourite crafty things is painting, leading to this animated sequence.
While she did this, I screen printed some Christmas gift bags on linen and hemp, using my dormant Speedball screen printing kit, like this. I’ll post some shots when they’re all sewn up.
