Yep, Saturday I'm off on holiday and the past week has been fraught with last minute washing, sorting, shopping, and various other pre-holiday chores... I hate the few days before going on holiday as once you've packed you just want to be going already!
But, I am no where near packed, I will be doing that tomorrow night... oh joy.
Instead I have been busy finishing off some projects for various things before I leave.
And what sights will be on the agenda this year?
Well, off to Poland via the Baltic coast this time, so hopefully visiting Rügen in Germany en route:
For some reason the pier at Sellin reminds me of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang...
I think Usedom is also on the planned stop-off route...
We're entering Poland right up at the north, and heading along the coast and staying here:
Hopefully some stops by the seaside en route to Gdansk where we're staying two nights on the waterfront:
Then we head south to visit my Grandma and family... :o)
The camera batteries are all charged so I hope to get some fab pics! Only taking two lenses this year... no zoom this time.
Oh and one of the projects I have been working to finish is a gift for my grandma:
Anyone who goes to my local crop will be amazed to see that I've finished it, because it has come to every crop I've been to since March... gradually being filled up but never finished - until last weekend! LOL
It's a kraft binder from Paperchase filled with their kraft pages (quite thin and I would recommend getting those clear adhesive ring defenders from Smiths to provide added protection for the pages) combined with Basic Grey's Kokeshi and a good many photos from last year. :o)
I am rather partial to these alpha stickers from Prima and the bling/pearls you get with them.
Also I added my first attempts at the Cuttlebug quilled flowers.
The one on the spine isn't great, but I know where I went wrong with this one!
The inside is quite straightforward - same layout on each page...
Plus stickers/rub-ons for extra detail...
And I had and still have a lot of black rub-ons...
...white ones too, to use up!
And there it is standing up...
And now, I'm not sure whether I should head off to bed, or watch episode two of the BBC's recent adaptation of Emma, I really enjoyed it on its original airing, but am loving rewatching the DVD. Excellent cast, wonderful costumes and settings, beautifully filmed... and I just love the silhouette credits at the start and end!
