Busy Week

Jav Swap

Xmas Card


I have had a busy week, sorting out , Tidying up and then making a mess again. Found some silk paper samples i had made a while ago and hadn't finished , so have now highlighted them with wax encaustic, need some ideas with what to do with them now! I have also started on my altered book for Maggie grey's class, thats added to the mess in the workroom. with gesso paint and glue , its a wonder the dog doesn't wake up in the morning looking like a piece of art. the workroom also being her bedroom.

Have had a few goodies in the post as well.

Xmas ATC's from Connie (Jav) Xmas card from Chris Gray(UK Embellisher swap) and last but not least an ATC from Judy a Flickr swap

Sue and Terry of are having a 12 days of Christmas giveaway starting on 14th Dec, you just need to sign up for their newsletter
Have a great week everyone

In a Bit of a Dither

Hi All,

just a quick update,

I am in a bit of a dither, cannot concentrate properly, as our dog as been quite poorly on and off all week, and the vet (my boss) cannot find out whats wrong. had to call him out last night and he gave her injections, so will have to see what today brings.

I have made a few Xmas ATC's the last couple of evenings, just need to take pics.
Have a great weekend everyone and a fun week.
