there are loads of things for me to do and yes now it is raining (again)....................making a post seemed the right thing to do today.
I've been asked where am I and what have I been doing as there has not been a post since let me see (scroll down a bit ...... June wow its August now.
It's well over a month since my last entry ....Well I've been up to ........ errrr well not much since the end of term really I watched my friend get hitched and have a fantastic wedding day .Saw the fabulous edition of the whimsy ezine, I've relaxed ,I've tried to stay on the right eating regime.I'm still going to zumba and trying not to kill myself with exercise
We have had some fab days out as a family a visit to drayton manor was eventful to say the least but loads of fun with thrill rides and the zoo.
I've decorated the stairs with hubby (still need to paint them ) I'm half way through wallpapering the living room (just waiting for the polyfilla to dry before I hang the next lot of wallpaper in there )
My craft shed well that's been sorted and stripped of naff and down right yukky stuff and I'm rearranging some of the storage methods at the moment and I'm going to brighten up the space next week once my stairs are painted (will be using the left over white paint ) my mojo is still in the atmosphere somewhere and refusing to return but I know it will as I'm getting itching fingers and hubby has moved into my shed painting little men again so I think he will need to be removed sooner rather than later.
I could say Ive not done much but reading back Ive done a bit
Oh and I have read the famous trashy trilogy twice over and thrown in a bit of baking too
I'm off to visit friends soon so my mojo may make an appearance sooner rather than later(I hope)
ahhh well the holiday bit and relax went a bit to pot with this orrible weather ,wet, drippy and yuk, but I have got loads of things done and had a good clear out of old for new and I'm set for the summer.When it appears lol
New fitness regime ( future son in laws gym instruction and some zumba should get those wobbly bits into shape if not it will kill me lol) , new foody schedule or rather back to eating fresh stuff and not junk food. is on course and my craft space has been cleared of all the crappy stuff I had collected over the years and my what a lot of junk I had got but its sorted and I have a box full of stuff to sell and a bin bag of rubbish
I'm ready to begin a new
reminds me I need felt as the craft shed will need a new roof soon.
I've just finished another load of wedding invites,order of service to do next and some confetti cones.
and work starts Monday whoop !!!!
make the most of the weekend
I think : /
roll on summer !!!!!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone will show you my creations next week
Oooh got a minute while the washing machine is going. I so forgot to post this last week, der- brain on other things at the moment I'm afraid. I made this card along with another using Whimsy's fab images for the latest issue of Complete card making .
You can see how I made the cards in the magazine,but I must say using Whimsy's dies are just fabulous I just love them. and of course I used my copics I just keep going back to these as a colouring medium every time. In the other card I used monochromatic colours, copics again and Whimsy's papers by the wonderful designer Michelle.
Check out the magazine in shops now for fabulous inspirations and a free dvd of all the images used.
I found this card while having a sort out and realised I hadn't taken any pictures so out came my camera and voila ( that's such a strange word VOILA mmmnn ) I've used the fantastic new papers from Whimsy with this card I just love the papers Michelle s making at the moment they are sooooo cute.
I'm back in the shed today still sorting but I have found some gems out and Id best get a wriggle on as its almost ready for tea
I'm back with slimming world recipes this week as I feel and look like a hippo and want to be a svelt gazelle (cant see that happening but a thin hippo would be a nice compromise) So its chicken and spinach curry for tea tonight mmmnnnn
Goodies Used:Mo Manning image,copics,Whimsy sentiment ticket and paper Pearls and twine from stash, Distressed edges vintage photo distress ink.
with the Justinklined Design team in this month of MAY
The host for this month is MEEEEEEE and I've made everyone hold back this month with the
theme of making a single layer card.
Did you see what Tammymade isn't it gorgeous if you didn't then remember to hop back and leave her a note as you could be in with a chance of winning a digi image yourself
Now I've decided to use the JustinklinedMan at work image for my card.I coloured him in with distress inks instead of copics only because I couldn't reach my pens as they are still under a lot of stuff we are clearing out (hope to make headway with that over the next few days).
I added some bakers twine and a fish charm to finish the card.
Thank you for stopping by and go on and have a go at a single layer card
its more difficult to hold yourself back when in the creative zone
Now you need to go and see Lori'screation and don't forget to leave a comment for the DT
