Wild and Windy!!!
Posted by manicstamper on June 25, 2007
I have to admit to being a Winter person, a bit of a snuggler so today has been absolute bliss for me…….thrashing down with rain, a good old wind whistling round the corners and the fire lit for the first time in weeks.
I have been snuggled up in my workroom and had such a peaceful, quiet afternoon with everyone either out or in bed. Just had to get tea for DD and myself so we were really naughty and had sausage and chips which were just gorgeous.
Was doing work which had to be done rather than stuff I wanted to do so I have made six wedding cards and have made some new girly birthday cards like the one up yonder. I made them to make a start on using up some of the diecuts I have done which seem to be staging a takeover bid.
The perfume bottles have been cut from some frosted plastic packaging and the labels I made on the computer. I’ve done them in lilac and pink and have made 18 of them so that has also made a start on using up some pearlised card that I have had forever……..probably about 3 years really.
Doing this has helped a bit with the guilt from my little trip to Craft Central yesterday. I went with a list and was adamant that all I wanted was some sequin waste (to have a go at the fab effect Gillian Hamilton showed us this week on her blog) and some biggish paint brushes. So why then did I come back with 2 stamps, 2 packs of chipboard diecuts, 1 Quickutz die, 1 Thin Cuts die, a pack of Cuttlebug embossing folders plus five paintbrushes and two packs of sequin waste. Honestly I am just not fit to be let out with money in my purse. Aw well somebody has to help keep the craft industry going……lol!!!
I’m just going to put away all the girly stuff now and have a sort out in my technique drawer which is overflowing and see if I can use some things up out of there before I go to bed. Must go a bit earlier tonight as I am at work tomorrow.
Bye for now
