Somebody stole my week. That's the only way I can reconcile myself to the fact that it is now the 13th June.
Humblest apologies, fellow WOYWWers. Not only have I not made my spare ATCs, but I didn't manage to visit everyone who visited me.
I have an excuse. (yeah, yeah, comme normale, I hear you say....)
It's car shaped.
My trusty Clio went bang big style on my way home last Wednesday, so most of my home-surfing time has been taken up with car hunting. So far, no luck, but if you know of anyone who has a 5-door diesel Clio for sale that is no more than 12 years old and has less than 100k on the clock, let me know.....LOL
What's that? Get on with it you say? Oops - I'm digressing.....
The real reason you're here is my desk - and hopefully by now you're one of the gazillio-dozens who does know what WOYWW stands for. If not, then head on over to The Stamping Ground where all will be revealed!
My desk is its usual scruffy self. As you can see, there's plenty going on. On my WOYWW stand at the back you will see (next to Edwin) the fab ATC I got from Lavinia - thanks hun!!! Just need your address now! The sandwich tub contains silver EP and in the middle at the front are the new ATCs I'm working on. I've not managed to get any aluminium sheet yet - it's on order but the company in question is a small concern and they're on holiday till Friday. I have to wait till next week for my goodies!!! So again, my apologies to my swapees - your ATCs are in progress (for excuse, go back to the car paragraph) and will be out in the post shortly.
As I have a new toy to play with, I'm practicing my light tent skills. Not overly chuffed with the lights that came with it - needs to be worked on, that aspect. And the cloths need a press. But all in all, the results are good. As were Lil Miss B's results with the keyring below. They had to make and design their own keyrings for Design Technology at school, and she's gifting it to her big sister who's about to spend a year in Malawi with one of the Christian charities. The lettering was apparently done with laser, would you believe! Didn't have such amazing toys at school when I was a kid! Anyway, she asked me to take a photo for her school portfolio, so here it is....
