A curious Christmas

I took part in the fabulous Curious Christmas project from The Curiosity Box (aka wedding planner Tiffany Grant-Riley) over the festive period.

For those who haven't come across it, the idea is to create a box of festive curiosities for a stranger, and receive one in return. Participants provide their address and a bit of blurb about the things they like, which Tiffany swaps around. You fill a box with curious gifts (bought, found or made), and when you get a box of your own you 'share the love' on the Curiosity Box blog. Such a simple way of spreading happiness and bringing people together!

It was such a joy pulling together items for the box I was making, then keeping an eye out on the blog to see whether it was appreciated (funny that so many boxes seem to have suited their recipients so well!).

And receiving a box of my own filled me with all sorts of warm and fuzzy. I can't wait for the next curious project.

New year new you

This blog has been lying abandoned and abused for far too long. I'm not going to set myself a challenge this year (last year's failed so spectacularly) but I am going to start posting again.

For library/work-related happenings, I'll still be using, whisper it, The Other Blog (Librarian of Tomorrow).

For photography, I've started another Project 365 (or rather 366 this year), on Flickr (if I make it past March it'll be a miracle).

Crafty bits, books and any other nonsense will be posted here. Maybe.

There, a blogging resolution I can probably stick to. Probably.
