Hi all you WOYWW'ers.
I was having a lovely evening trying out a new technique of making my own metal flowers which you punch out, emboss with a cuttlebug to add texture and then distress with TH distress inks. Then bend into shape and add a centre, brad, beads, gems etc.
Well as you can see I only got so far as punching out the shapes (didn't even get my cuttlebug out), when I heard the familiar voice of:"mummy, can you help me with my homework - it HAS to be in tomorrow!) Of course, this was being asked 20 minutes before her bedtime!!! So that was the end of last nights "new technique" - Oh well - will have to come back to it tomorrow night! It's just you know, when you're really on a roll and want to get on... - (but then that's what mum's are for, I suppose).
You may also just be able to see some lovely new stamps, part of a LOAD of lovely craft stash I got for Mother's Day. Oh, and also a notebook - which holds ALL my favourite sites, tutorial's, passwords etc!!!! (I thought I'd lost it and was getting in a real panic, but thankfully I found it under a load of Craft magazine's I'd been reading!!!
Have a great Wednesday, be sure to pop over to Julia's blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
