If it had been WOYWTuesday then you would have seen a bare table. Had visits for Sunday lunch so had to clear all my stuff from the dining room table as I am one of those very, very deprived people who do not have a craft room. On second thoughts, I do have a craft room - who needs a dining room?
Decided to have a very messy day, even more than normal, and make some backgrounds and all I can say is thank goodness for rubber gloves. Have had these Starburst Stains for ages, so much so that a couple had dried out - so I added some more water to get the last dregs out of the pots. I go off mica every so often but the effect really is impressive - pity the sheen does not show up on the photos. My favourite is the paler one which is a lovely jade and copper but the photo doesn't do it justice - it's calling for me to get out my asian stamps.
I got time yesterday to sort out some of my stamps - is it only me who tumbles them all back any old how at the end of the day? Sat down and sorted them all out into their rightful places in these 'Really Useful' boxes. If anything was named correctly then it must be these - I need more, lots more, I only have eight and am overflowing into the drawers at the side. Drawers are really the bottom part of my Grandma's Edwardian pine dressing-table. Had to take off the top part and mirror to make room for my dolls house so they are up in the loft now. Have had the dressing table since my Gran died, I was 14 at the time and we painted it white. Now it's a lovely golden colour - well worth the hours and hours I spent stripping it back.
Having a craft day tomorrow with a friend but that will be much more sedate - Pro-markers. Have always loved 'colouring in', so in for a relaxing time - and cleaner fingers.
Off not to have a look at Julia's blog and all the other WOYWW'ers
