Hello there Peeps
It is Wednesday – again!!!! It only seems like the other day since it was last Wednesday!! And what does it being Wednesday mean to us crafters? Of course, we all join in with the phenomonomonomon that is known as WOYWW hosted by the lovely Julia herself who can be found HERE.
Well, without further ado, here is my desk….
I know. I know. It is a mess! But please cut me some slack! I am in the middle of something and a girl cannot be expected to undertake a task without making some sort of mess!!!
What am I doing? Well, let me tell you a story. I take part in the Grungy Monday Challenge (click on the box over there if you want to know more about it – but not quite so quickly!!).
What was I saying? Oh Yes. I went to the place that Linda sent us to, where we were to see the Great Man Himself, Mr Tim Holtz, undertake his magic and then we were tasked with making something, reflecting what we had learnt. I made, as usual, a tag. But to be honest with you, I am not happy with it as I don’t think the colours are bold enough and also the cream cardstock I made the tag out of, well, quite frankly, didn’t stand up to the task in hand – quite literally. I left it for a few hours and it looked more than a little limp!!!!
So last night, inspired by the lovely Linda, I got my lovely new die out of it's packaging and, using the skills Mr Holtz had taught us, I started to make – not a tag – but a little suitcase, in the hope that it will turn into a little Travel Journal!
Unfortunately sleep prevailed last night, and being a school night, I had to go to bed so will hopefully finish the project tonight in amongst hopping around desks.
You may recall that a few months ago I was making a Bee Book for my Hubby. If you would like to see it finished then please click HERE to see it.
Please leave me a comment as I do love to read them. They usually make me laugh!!
P.S. For the Lovely Julia and Jan’s benefit, the little pot of sticks that were on my desk last week, used to be used for the purpose of applying hot wax to various parts of my body in order to remove unwanted fluff. I got rid of the waxing pot after my mother-in-law gave up her salon, as I could no longer obtain the wax which was not available to the public, but I kept the sticks in case I should ever have a use for them. I do!! They are very useful for holding lickle bits of grungeboard down whilst you are heating them with the heat gun and stopping my lickle fingies getting burnt. They also come in handy for stirring paint around and wax in my cauldron (aka Melt Pot!) but not at the same time!! Being a little bigger than the sticks you get with your coffee they tend to stand up to the task a little better!
