Pastel Note Card & Clearing Away!
My card is unusually delicate. I like to see if I can actually cope without brights. The answer is no. I’m not a pastel girly. Perhaps it’s because I’m a pale faced blonde. Maybe it’s because I love the vibrancy of the fuller colours or just simply they’re more fun?
I’ve mixed up some chronology ( stamps) vintage notes (sentiment) and spots and stripes ( craft tape). People seem still afraid of the Chronology range. “I don’t do grunge and messy” is their cry. It’s mine too. I love sharp lines and clean edges.
It’s one gorgeous stamp and I’ve highlighted some of the beautiful individual elements by stamping them individually and adding them like a little shelf!
I’m around at Abakhan (Liverpool) on Saturday 12-3. I’ll be doing lots of Big Shot techniques too. There’s a great offer they’re running that any purchases of a Big Shot between now and the end of February get a 2 hour techniques workshop plus some make and takes. There’s the chance to pay for the workshop too particularly if you’ve got a die-cutting machine and want to explore all the many many things you can create. Come in store and see or get in touch with me for more info.
This week has involved clearing up and cleaning up. How does my home get so crazily messy so quickly? Anyone know?
I found this and thought it was entirely true!
Do you concur?
( love that word!!!)
One of my kids in a creative expression decided to show off all of his latest Lego models in his bedroom. Love the eye for the artistic but it’s involved kinda chucking all the things that were on the ledge previously to a new home decorating various parts of the carpet. The Hoover is speechless.
So am I .
A jumble sale has nothing on my son- it looks like someone has raged in there & strewn anything not nailed down onto what was previously known as the floor.
My heart’s not in it.
The idea of sorting through umpteen pieces of plastic, paper and ‘stuff’ makes me sigh.
And not in a good way.
The temptation is strong.
Get 3 bin bags- dont look. Scoop up every single piece of bittiness and deposit in a said black liner.
If it weren’t for the wastage and tears it would result in, I’d do it.
In a heartbeat.
Imagine how fast housework would get done!
I have flattening to do.
This kind of flattening.
See you when I’ve told the kids to jump up and down on it! Xx
Oh P.S.- this is Will’s latest insight into politics-
“David Cameron …David Cameron- he’s our owner?”
Really? ( I ask incredulously)
“He’s the guy that keeps the whole country safe. And the queen “.
Maybe Will will go into politics! xx
