I can hear many of you groan … “How is that possible” …well it is …it was piled even higher with non-crafty bits as well, last week. lol
The only things here that really show I have actually been messing around crafting, is my note book that I am using to jot down LO’s and tips from the Miss Arty classes … and an experiment…. the paper with the red thing in the middle.
In her class, Julie Winks prints from the printer onto material…then cuts and frays etc for use on her LO’s. It sort of worked …and sort of got stuck !!!…needs fine tuning on my printer I think but could be a very useful technique.
The odds and ends of material are a little pack of Christmas oddments that I picked up at Very Crafty the other week, for £1.99 …thought they might be useful for cards but the brain cells are still pondering on their actual usefulness….oh yes there is a large box of Ibroprofen ….a necessity for all those crafters with dodgy backs. …and a box of Cheddars just out of shot …also a necessity as I ran out of chocolate lol
It shows my Mums twin brother on his wedding day…I have been meaning to do it for ages and thought this paper worked, mounted on black. I love the ribbon that matches another of the sheets in the set and I think works here too. (Must stick those letters down better ... I can see in the photo, that they seem to be lifting)
I spent a few hours reading and wave watching yesterday as the rain had stopped and the sun was showing its face….probably should have done some sorting out of my desk or some crafting …but it will all be here tomorrow and the sun might not.
I’ll try to get round to as many of you as I can …promise.
Take Care xx
PS. I can’t believe what has happened in England since the weekend and in the south in particular. I worked in Croydon and lived just out side, until 2005. There are many I know who still live there and are close to where the trouble was, in fact one friend saw looters passing her window with their arms full.
The looters and petrol bombers hit the older parts of the town …Reeves corner, which was the worst hit and the pictures were shown in the news, had managed to stand there for many generations (over 150 years) of the same family ...survive the depression and the bombing of the Second World War ....only to be abliterated by hooligans having fun.
