Through dedication and perseverance, we have managed to eat up all the holiday food and sweets.We got through most of the turkey before its expiry date, and cracked open the gift Prosecco for New Year's Eve in front of the telly. We've watched the entire Hobbit trilogy which was one of my Christmas presents - I liked it a lot better watching it for the second time and consecutively, than I did seeing it in the cinema.
Yesterday DH dropped me at the new year's sale at the Colemans Craft Warehouse in Rushden. It was a decent sale, 30% off most things and quite a few bits marked down to 50% off. Also there was a pop-up sale next door of MDF blanks - I think it was these people - at very reasonable prices. I haven't really done anything with MDF blanks before but they were so cheap that I bought a caddy for my cutting rulers on my cutting station; a tray to corral my scissors, rotary cutter etc; a pencil holder; a couple of blank plaque shapes and two caskets which may be gifts. A bit of painting with acrylic paint ensued, decorating with Mod Podge and papers, and the old hot glue gun came out, and I'm quite pleased with the results. It was fun to try something new.
