Hello everyone and welcome back to my world! (or at least the crafty bit of it:) It's time to bounce around the crafting spaces of the planet with our 'hostess with the mostest' Julia Dunnit and the rest of the gang over at the Stamping Ground. If you fancy joining in just jump over to her blog for all the deets.
My photo is a bit blurry today (dodgy operator:) but that represents life this week - a bit of a blur, rushing around trying to accomplish a million things at once. Craftwise I'm working on stuff which takes time. For the moment the Christmas stuff has been put to one side. See that pile of leaves on the left? Gotta cut those out by hand, and there's a load of oak leaves to do too when I work out the ingredients required. There are lots because they are needed for a number of ongoing projects, including the money/bird box in the middle. That was one of my few purchases from the MDFman at the NEC - oh yes, FEW! I had the best time meeting up with Butterfly to scour the stands for 'the essentials that were on the list'; it was great to get another opinion about whether some things were worth it. Mind you, I now have a shopping list for Viva Decor/Paperartsy/MDFman which even Santa would groan at!!! Back to the desk, I've been messing with the key/bird embellies and testing my ideas for ink/colour blending for the box based on the dragon clock on the right. It came from Nottingham about 20 years ago before you ask so I shouldn't think they are still available!!! There's a background still to do for another leafy card, but that's still in my head. Right, that's it for now. I need to go and visit my fellow WOYWWers. Thanks for dropping by; I look forward to seeing you all again soon. Hugs as ever, Buttons x
