So while I sit here

wondering whether or not I need to change out of my tracksuit pants to go and get my eyebrows waxed, I thought I would write up a blog post. There is no choice but to go out to get them done, I am starting to look angry even when I am not. I am starting to frighten even myself.

The other week I went to the library with Sarah. The same day we found those amazing cotton spools. Anyway, browsing the crafty book section, I happened to come across this book:

If you haven't seen it before, I suggest you look out for it. It is absolutely amazing! The work involved in the paper cutting craft is just mind blowing. (I had to google another word for amazing, I didn't want to use the same word twice in two sentences!)

So of course I thought, I can do that.

Two things:
1. I am not a good drawer. At all.
2. I am not very imaginative when I do try to draw.

Doesn't bode very well, but nothing like a bit of Pinterest inspiration to help me along.

I needed a saying. So I chose this poster:

And proceeded to make this:

And I must say, it made the millions of ads after every single song on X-Factor, go much faster! I am thinking I might still chuck it in one of my scrapbook albums, as opposed to the bin. It's very dodgy, rubbed out pencil everywhere, but it's ok for a first attempt. Especially with my artistic deficiencies. :)


  1. Well I think it looks pretty damn cool, you have inspired me to look for the book.

    1. Ahhh Kerryn, you are far too generous with your praise! But yes, see if your local library has this book or will get it in for you. It is absolutely astonishing what people can do with a couple of bits of paper!

  2. I love it..don't chuck it! Stick in a frame and hang in craft room! DO NOT CHUCK,

    This is Sarah won't let me log in

    1. Ok, ok, I won't chuck it out! Maybe there's a reason Google won't let you sign in.... ;)

  3. Hey Beth - for someone that claims to be not very good, that sure looks pretty awesome!! Especially for a first try! Had to tell you how much I love it :)

  4. Wow this is awesome!!! Loved what you did! And the book looks so intriguing! :D
