Layered Tag & Too Many Parcels!
Have been spending a bit of time in my tidier and lighter craft room. You can almost hear a sigh from it. It seems much happier with its new streamlined look. I haven’t finished yet. There are 2 cupboards yet to face my ruthless slinging out!
This tag makes me happy just looking at it. Unusual colours for me and I’ve even managed to incorporate lace and not feel that it shouldn’t be there. It’s not shabby nor vintage but about as close as I’ll ever get! The beautiful products are from Prima. Now you might have preconceived ideas about the sort of look you get from Prima but think again- I do love all the fabric and paper flowers but there’s much more to Prima than that! Their stamps are really great quality, and surprisingly good value- check them out and you’ll see what I mean! This range of papers is from the North Country Collection and I’ve layered and stamped and added a few jewels.
Right now I’m in the middle of a Postman pat parcel game. It involves stacking lots of parcels onto a stationary Pat. At present he’s holding 11 parcels – add a few more and they’ll all fall off and the game then finishes. Reminds me of my current job in life!!! We’ve both just had a little chocolate and chilli cookie. Really? Whoever thought that sticking flakes ( and they are complete pieces!) of chilli would actually improve a delicious cookie? Maybe it was a way of using up ingredients. It’s one of those experiences that you’re not really sure about whilst you’re in the middle of it but upon reflection you conclude that it really wasn’t a good idea!
Did any of you go to the Port Sunlight Happy Stampers show on Saturday?What did you pick up? It amazes me just how much hard work goes into organising an event like that. I was the last of the big spenders- only bought £3.10 worth!. I was a little bit busy doing another bit of research – but more about that another time!!
Better go- Pat has dropped all his parcels; it was inevitable really. Try and do all that and something will have to give xx
