Wednesday, 5 May 2010

Hello Wednesday, here we are again. Well dare I say it but my back is ever so slightly better, or rather I am having more good days than bad with it. Still wearing a support when I go out, and still uncomfortable to sit for a long time,especially in the car but it is better than it was. Yay..go team me! Lol

So peekatures, well firstly here are another 2 cards made with the fabby papers and images on Kirstys new cd, please see previous post for all the details.

The first is using the 'Lemony Sherbert' files and the second is using the 'Jemima Cuppycake' files.








Next we have a set of 3 mini canvasses, decorated at our montly art group. I love how we all do the same thing but they always turn out so different.




Last weekend I made strawberry cheesecake cupcakes, inspired by some on my friend Jean’s blog, but I used a totally different recipe lol I a behind with my 52 cakes, I can see December being a cake a day kind of month lol I have bought ingredients this week to do something with plums and a lime jelly cheesecake….watch this space.



Next, my bookcases, finally finished. They now have the top boxes added and all filled up. I got my geek on and catalogued ALL of our books, well just the ones in the living room. We have lots of half sets of books, so now we have somewhere lovely to keep them I a on the look out for the missing books. On Bank Holiday Monday we went to a second hand shop in Alnwick, a long journey for me of 90 mins, but I was all strapped up and managed to get through the day. The book shop was amazing, huuuuge, and I picked up 15 second hand books. I went armed with a 14 page list printed out after the aforementioned catalogueing!


Finally, 2 posts ago I mentioned the tag swap I was in, well my tags from the other girls have arrived, here they are. All very lovely and lots of techniques going on. Just need to think of a way to disply them now. Ideas on the matter appreciated.







...and of course my desk, very untidy, full of the remnants of cardmaking. There are also a pile of doll making books under there and a protype bag made from 12 x 12 and sticky backed plastic .It needs a really good sort, as does the floor which I won’t be showing you as it really is that bad lol




Have a great day, see you all in cyberspace.x

  2. Oooh, was the bookshop Barter Books? It's fantastic - my folks have an account there so we always end up taking a load of books when we go to visit to top up their account! I love your canvases(sp?), I'm planning on doing some for our bathroom - I have the canvases and the materials - just need to get round to doing them! x

  47. your artwork is awesome and you move from style to style with such ease. With the amount of stuff you have going on, i'm surprised your desk is as tidy as it is... mine certainly isn't and i;ve done NOTHING for over a fortnight!!!
