At least I can happily report that my exams are all marked, marks are entered and now I can play without feeling guilty!
Last Saturday we had a craft group going at church and because my 2nd daughter has three children, she never gets out or has the time to do something creative or fun, just for herself, so I decided to treat her to the craft day. She didn't want to go alone, so I 'reluctantly' agreed to go with. What fun we had. We each painted a flower on wood, using texture paste and paints. I am no artist, but I do love my flower and DD's flower is already hanging on the wall in her house.
Lat night, after I finished marking (are you proud of me that I actually finished first? LOL) I started going through my e mails and found an ATC swap. I have never made an ATC (can you believe it?), always wanted to try, so I thought -why not? and promptly entered the swap. Then I started playing - the challenge is called 'got bling!". Whats the verdict girls? Should I abandon ship, will I totally embarass myself, or can I carry on and make the rest?
I played with some gold leaf (another first), some stamps and some bling. The background was inked first. I quite like the effect, just not sure its a successful ATC.
My desk I hear you ask. Well, there was no time for a photograph (thats my story and I am sticking to it!), maybe next week, when I am sure there will be a lot of things other than exam papers.
Go visit Julia (http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com ), you know you want to (NEED TO) see everybody else's desks!
Happy crafting till next Wednesday and just in case I forgot to share - I am leaving on a Jet plane in two weeks to go to CHA!!!!!
