I'm really late this morning despite my overboard enthusiasm for Julia's WOYWW. I've been so busy this past week it all caught up with me last night and I've slept for England.
Anyway, I'm up now and on the worksdesk trail.
'Peg Leg' made me a little present yesterday, well actually it will hold all sizes of card. What do you think?
Hopefully, when I start to join in some challenges over the winter, this will come in really handy to photograph them better.
I've completed Heather's August ATC swap cards this week and will post those today, and I had a go at the Something Completely Different challenge, so at least I've done some crafting.
I made a tattered flower last night and hope to faux porcelain it today. Doesn't that sound posh? All I'm going to do is dunk it in some clear UTEE in the hopes that last night's effort doesn't fall apart!
I also finally assembled all the net, grunge and material flower pieces I cut out a couple of weeks ago.
If I get chance I want to make the tag you see with Tim's bird and cage. Not made one yet so I think it's about time I did.
I bought some mini canvasses this week. So many of the mind-blowing creations I see on blogs are altered art and many are on these mini canvasses. I don't have any art in my little room, apart from a birthday card from someone special that I framed, so thought I could have a go at these over the weeks and, because they are tiny, hang them on the wall 'cos tiny is all I can fit.
Some of you may remember me telling you that I was going to learn to fly model aircraft - only the easy ones though, not helicopters. 'Peg Leg' bought a 'wing' when we were away and built it up. When we came home he put £50 worth of lights on it!!!! However, due to the complexity of soldering all the joints it took an age. The bummer to this is one of the lights has a break in the wire somewhere, so they are all off again and he still hasn't been able to test fly it. That's why I haven't had a go. Never mind, it will soon be dark all day so the lights will show up better!!!!!!!!!
