Welcome to my blog. I am married to Tim with a young son who's antics are relayed within this blog as well as my experiments in all forms of papercraft, including cardmaking, scrapbooking, artist trading cards (ATC) and inchies. I hope you enjoy what you see and read and I look forward to reading your comments.
I design for Quirky Crafts
I have been lucky enough to be nominated for the following awards
Well I am both scared and excited as it is Wednesday that I will get to meet the students who are going to be taking the Masters course that I designed! I will be giving the first lecture on Friday so can let you know how it goes then. All this explains why my crafting desk, which I am entering into WOYWW as usual, is looking very work heavy (the blue booklet is the new course handbook)...I was working from home on it today (I confess I am typing this on Tuesday as I wont have time tomorrow).
Here is how it looked this morning with one young man playing with my Dylusions spray inks before school...probably not very sensible, but a lot of fun! The desk is protected by a thin piece of MDF that lives slotted down beside it ready for messy work. Does anyone know how to unblock a spray nozzle on a dylusion ink? - one of them is blocked and I have only used it twice.
This is the desk cleared of all work, this evening with my smash book open waiting for me to print out the next set of photos...I have about 200 to choose from so it may be a while before I decide which ones will be printed for the book. As you can see I have a mug of tea to drink while I browse through them all.
As part of organising my crafting space I sorted out the tray at the back of my desk to make it more useful and now have all my paints in there ready to play when I get a minute.
I have managed to make a few more pages in my smash book...this one is of our wedding anniversary earlier this year...we went on a steam train ride.
I couldn't resist doing a double page spread for my dinner on board SS Great Britain (it was such a wonderful evening) and with the dark background paper I just had to use gold embellishments to mimic the colourings of the ship. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
