MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Oh what a wonderful week I've had.....

I went awol to spend some fabby dabby crafty time with my bestest crafting buddies Chriss and Debbie and OMG what fun we had!!! Laughing till our sides ached and having muchus fun with all kinds of crafty bits. I will save the best till last so hope you don't get too bored (long post lol).

The lovely talented Debbie (Shariati) shared some stampbord pieces with us and I was in Heaven having a play with this as it's the first time I've used it....

new addiction coming into play me thinks. Don't usually like small cos of my sausage fingers but I just loved doing these little inchies :D

We sloshed around with inks, paints, colour washes and all sorts of goodies but as I can't bear to waste anything... I had to use the huge bits of kitchen roll that we had mopped up some of the inks create a background. Waste not want not eh!!

It was really therapeutic to stick down all the torn bits onto a new sheet 'specially as there was no plan and no telling how it would turn out. Mind you I was bound to create something wonderful in my puddy cat night attire that I lived in for most of the Well we weren't going anywhere further than the craft table and I like to be comfy.

I was however banished to the builders yard for ciggy time... I know... I know.... filthy habit but I just can't help myself. Naughty pic this... makes me look 107 pmsl... but I had just washed me hair and needed the turban and bodywarmer along with the coffee to enable me to brave the cold air while I had me fix (was under glass I might add so not braving the elements altogether)

'n' here was the result of all me sticking 'n' gluing... not entirely fabulous but I liked it...

and it worked well as a background for my circular tag...just love the texture of pieces like this.

We were a bit naughty on the food front too cos Chriss kept feeding me magnum ice creams.... yuuuuuummy and as I said before I can't waste anything so the lolly stick became the wings for my paper button I'm having withdrawal symptoms now I'm home BUT I'm waiting for my TSV from QVC YEEEEEES I'm getting Tim Holtz new book and I'm just sooooooo excited!!!!!!!! I got an email today to say it's been sent out and I am hyperventilating at the thought of getting it... whoooohoooo playtime here come ;-)

If they've had time there should be more evidence of our crafty days together on both Chriss' and Debbies' blogs so if you get chance do pop over and check out their pics :D

Thanks for looking

See you soon
