First I must give a big apology to those dear folk who visited me last week but had no reply from me in spite of best intentions. Please forgive, and thank you for your lovely comments. In case you are wondering, this is a Desk Hopping Day - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. The starting place is Julia's Stamping Ground so follow the link to enjoy (and maybe make sense of it ;-)).
I had my nose to the grind-stone in preparation for the U3A workshop on Monday. Happy to say it went well and all the participants left saying "See you next week" - always a good sign.
Next was the Paperific Show which I was determined not to miss so disciplined myself to work around it for Saturday. It was very worthwhile going, and fun to meet quite a few chums there. I spent quite a bit, some on new things and some filling some gaps for example, I added a couple of alcohol ink colours, bought envelopes and card stock, and added some Liquid Pearls. Here are a couple of interesting bits and pieces though.
|Some new dies from Memory Box, Hero Arts and Cottage Cutz.|
|This is Spring Vine Wreathe with envelop ready. I find a glue stick and fine tweezers are great for placing tiny pieces.|
|Michael Powell stamps are new to me. Thought this one would be fun for Christmas.|
Today is wild and windy with the State Emergency Service on alert for fallen trees and lost roofs. What a contrast with yesterday which was sunny and full of green and yellow around the garden and the roadside verge. The sea is full of white horses and looks wonderful – I love the contrast of white and slate blue-gray.
Miles of smiles,
