Can you believe the clocks are about to alter for another winter?? I hate it when it happens but get used to it as the weeks go by and snuggle up at night in my dressing gown watching tv. But how nice would it be to never see the winter??? Well I for one would not mind 12 months of summer for at least one year. That's just what my neighbours have EVERY year!! They set off at 5am this morning for Goa and will not be back until next April!!! How exciting is that?? Safe trip you two, see you in blogland, email land and Skype for the next 6 months.
We, on the other hand, can jet over to Julia's to spy on the craft desks of the world from the comfort of our own little pads. I have been up to a few bits and bobs these last few days, making pages for She's chunky book swap.
I also found some 'fluffy stuff' in my cupboard which I haven't used yet, so I 'splodged' a bit on a punched snowflake to see what happened. Nothing! so I heated it a bit and it did 'puff' slightly.
I must practise more with this 'cos it's time for those Xmas cards!!!!
I should have been wallpapering yesterday, but the weather made the light really poor and I don't do artificial light. Just can't see properly in it. Ok, I'm using a desk lamp now - being 7am - but it's got a daylight bulb in it, so 'peg leg' and I went out instead. I was after the new Magnolia magazine, which I finally managed to get after a 40mile round trip.
The cards in this issue are a dream. I wish I could make them all and frame them.
I also ended up with 2 new Martha Stewart punches, one courtesy of my DH.
I was browsing a few blogs yesterday and came across a card which had the gorgeous border on it. Little did I think that I would have that punch by the end of the day. Better still, right next to it in the shop was the corner punch. Well, what good is one without the other eh???
My poor 'peg leg' has man flu now. He is in a right old mess because coughing is really bad for him what with his double hernia and all. I reckon a trip to the chemist for some cough medicine is on the cards today. Enjoy your woyww hopping everyone. I will try (probably in vain again) to get round everyone 'cos I love a good 'ol nosey.
