Just was so tired yesterday after struggling with Tim's tag #7 and then putting the Xmas tree up. In fact, I have only been up half an hour. That's really bad because we have to go miles away today for 'peg leg's appointment with the specialist about his hernias. Will have to get a crack on.
Wondered whether you might like to see the progress made with the guitar this week.
It's had umpteen coats of Rolls Royce car paint and then umpteen coats of lacquer. 'Peg leg' is just waiting for the neck to arrive - hopefully today before we have to go out - so he can finish it off. Those of you familiar with guitars will recognise it as a Fender Stratocaster. I 'll show you it finished next week - hopefully.
Well, my desk this morning is cluttered with some of the items  needed for today's tag.

I don't have all the products but am fortunate enough to have recently bought the mask form the Artistic Stamper. Some foresight that! I hope to find some time to do more blog hopping than I managed last week - after getting round everyone the week before too - as it's thanks to our WOYWW leader Julia, that we can do all this snooping. Also, I hope you are not snowed in and keeping warm. As usual, the North West has no snow, just freezing temperatures, which incidentally, all melted yesterday!
See you next week. x

This one's for Terry:
It wasn't very large
There was just even room to cram the drums
In the corner by the Dodge
It was a fifty four
With a mashed up door
And a cheesy little amp
With a sign on the front
Said FENDER champ
And a second hand guitar
It was a STRATOCASTER with a whammy bar......

I've been following Timmy tags, although I won't be making any as I lack both supplies and time right now, but they are quite amazing! Love how the guitar is coming on but why Rolls Royce paint?
