Iwas determined to have some 'playtime' this Easter break, despite the living room being decorated and the house being upside down.
I've been using Kirsty Wisemans newest cd 'Colourful burst of fanciful things' this week and what problems I've had trying to decide which of the fabby papers to use. I dont know about you but I've often been disappointed in the past by some cd's but thats not the case with this one - there literally isnt a single item on it that I dont like! I was quite loathe to actually USE them, very very strokeable lol!! Ive also managed to complete two oval wooden boxes that Jordan liberated from his bedroom - yet again Ive forgotten to take a picture BEFORE I started them. Theyve had the Tim Holtz distress ink treatment along with glimmer mists, pearls, butterflies, flowers etc etc ! On the larger of the two I made up some muslin roses from scratch and was quite pleased with the outcome, I finished them off with a flower/pearl in the centre and a swipe across the ink pad! The smaller of the two I kept very simple, I quite like the contrast.
I've also managed to make a visit to Costco and IKEA over at Gateshead with a friend, meet three of the girls I worked with at another school a few years ago for lunch on Tuesday and today Ive visited my cousin and her husband who are over from Cyprus for a while - not bad eh!
Need to try and get my hair highlighted before going back to school on Monday :-(. would love to have a complete revamp but somehow it always ends up the same - oh well.
Bedtime I think - my book is calling me. Hopefully more crafting tomorrow. xxx
