I love using newsprint because it's plentiful and cheap, not to mention the recycling aspects! I usually do what I've done here and chalk ink the edges to give it an "antique" look - these were items I made for the newsprint challenge over on Awfully Big Art Adventure. The ATC is available to trade - just ask!

I went to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC (Birmingham) yesterday and am paying for it today - even with my zimmer frame it's a lot of walking for me! Didn't buy very much (but only because I didn't need very much), although I did pick up a few bargains. I love the buzz of so many crafters together and how happy and cheerful everyone is!!

Thx for the kind comment on my blog :) I've just been looking at the lovely ATCs you've posted here. Such very clever ideas, love them. I hadn't realised but it was from you I recently nicked the newsprint flowers idea from haha. We had a play at making some at our local craft club along with other arty flower ideas. You inspired us :) Pxx
