Well it's Wednesday again, the day when half the crafting world have a good nosey around what the other half are up to, thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground. Bit of an expensive week this week but not on stamps, or inks, well apart from the seasonal distress inks I have on order. It was vets on Monday to have Sorrel weighed and get her worming tablet, dentists yesterday for my check-up and hairdressers this afternoon for my highlights - guess which one I wasn't looking forward to? Correct! Why do dentists always ask you questions when they have both hands in your mouth?
Don't know if it was the worming tablet but my doggy wasn't at all well Monday afternoon, very lethargic so we spoiled her even more than normally, bringing her food on a little plate and lots of cuddles - how mad are we. She was off all day but back to her normal hyper-self yesterday.
So, apart from spending yet more money on ink pads what have I been up to? Made a few cards, couple of bookmarks, one of which you have already seen, and started to think about a Stampboard swap I am signed up for. So far I have only got as far as getting out my Stampboard pieces and looking at them but inspiration will hit me - I hope.
Here's my desk this week.
New Tesco extra opened yesterday and was packed (or so I hear). I left the madding crowds to it - and their free bag, toast loaf and bag of crisps - and went this afternoon. Couldn't believe they had a mini craft shelf with this great canvas covered sketchbook. Have been saying for ages that I want to try an art journal - or my version of one so, reader, I bought it.
The stamps came all the way from China on a parcel for Mr B - he makes plastic model cars (an even more expensive, hobby than mine but takes up a 20th of the room)
The frame, from Ikea, has been sitting in a corner for 12 months or more so I thought I would get it out and dust it down. Did think about tarting it up and entering the Crafty Individuals challenge for September as a hanging thing but I may not have time. In which case it will go back in the corner for another few weeks, on the other hand you may just see it on here next week, fully refurbished, we will see.
