Hello my friends. I trust this finds you well, and in less of a tizzy than I find myself! I go off on Friday for my “summer” holiday – which includes a craft course (pergamano), and then time with my whole family for half term. I shall be visiting crafty friends too – Shoshi, and Sarah – so I’m really looking forward to the whole time. But – the house looks like a bomb site as I try to prepare and not leave anything behind – my to-do list gets longer each time I cross something off – and the hotel are desperate for more cards before I go (I only gave them a couple of dozen a week ago!). Oh well, Friday will arrive, I will leave at the prescribed time, and simply ignore what isn’t done…
Well, I did warn you! Bottom right, a brief peek at my never ending to-do list, the orange bowl contains water and stencils I have used, waiting to be cleaned, a plastic box of tear drop inks, cutting mat on which are two attempts with a 3D embossing folder and wax – not at all successful!, wax pots all neatly lined up, stick and spray, scissors etc., acrylic blocks, a pile of stamps and papers, and embossing powder. Fading into the distance beyond the edge of the chair you can see that most of my drawers are out of the cabinet and on the floor. The shelf almost looks neat – well, everything is relative!
The reason for this chaos? here’s a couple of examples…
One of the 16 thank you cards I made and wrote from my brother and myself to all the folk who gave of themselves at my dad’s funeral and provided us all with an incredible meal!
One of the cards for the hotel – using sparkly texture paste.
And one of the Christmas cards I have done for them.
So that’s me this week folks. Untidy, but hopefully by Friday, reasonably organised! I shall be away for the next two weeks – missing in action as it were, but I will do my best to visit as many as possible today. Thank you to everyone who visited last week, and left such beautiful comments – I managed to visit you all, but couldn’t comment on two or three – sorry.
Take care my friends. God bless.
