I have looked at all the online free prompts, none of them really grab me, can't afford any of the paid for ones,and really do I want to commit to something for a whole year. Sounds like too much hard work to me. But then ,as I was getting sick of reading about all the enthusiasm of my fellow crafters, getting revved up for the year ahead, I happened to make a joke status update on FB. This read as follows...
"hmmmm all these scrapping ideas,365 days, journal your year,52 in 10,a photo a day,document 2010,A-Z this,that and the other...I think I am gonna do '2010, a year in cakes'..."
this was meant as a joke,simply a parody of all the prompts out there. But then, worryingly, it started to seem like a good idea....and then friends commented, and i got caught up in the moment lol
So 52 cakes in one year, baking them isn't a problem, though I will be calling for recipes, it's the eating I am concerned about!!!
I have cut a front and back cover in the shape of a cupcake, on the cricut. I plan to laminate the recipes and fix them inside the book with velcro so they can be pulled out and used. I would also like to take a nice photo of each cake, and for this I will require some pretty china plates...
hey if i can't eat the damn cakes I bloomin well deserve some china out of it!
so my hunt for cheapy china is on, and today I scoured the charity shops, well perhaps scoured isn't entirely true..I happened to be passing 2 of them and popped in. I got 2 blue and white side plates(different patterns) I think 6-8 plates will be enough, and having them all mismatched will be cool.
I also got some laminating pouches in the £1 shop, so it's all systems go. No idea how to make the pages yet, what cardstock to use. Obv it needs 52 pages so I don't want to use anything too bulky, so chipboard pages are out. I did think about getting some old recipe books and gluing 2-3 pages together to make the required thickness....or maybe not, I am sure that will work itself out.
hmm what else, I drew a giraffe for my A-Z art journal, with only one letter finished last year, it could be a longterm project lol i am very hesitant to start colouring him in, not entirely sure where to start with 'fur'
oh and we have had snowfall after snowfall. I have come to the very scientific conclusion that similar to marmite, you either love snow or you hate it...SNOMITE.
Crop tomorrow, spose I should pack a bag...
