Hi to all the woyww's out there, if your wondering what the hell I'm on about visit Julia's Blog to see lots of crafty desks. Wow wasn't last week fantastic? I did have problems trying to visit and comment last week, this was 1. because of blogger which I think I have managed to made some changes for it to work on most blogs and 2. our internet was down, well not down totally email was fine but trying to get onto websites, I had no chance!!! Mr ntl guy came around on saturday and wait for it................ It was because it was to hot outside!!!! I told him to slap some sun cream on, use a fan do whatever but get the internet working. I mean too hot!!! this really beats anything I have heard before. Anyway a new something whatever the guy changed and cooler weather meant from saturday evening it was working again lol lol, we have been warned though if the box gets hot again we could have problems, well I assure you it won't be as I will be the one out there with an electric fan hooked up. Off course the blogger problem I can't really complain about as I get it free. Also where's my mojo????? he seems to pop out most days and only comes back for an odd hour here or there, so I have started leaving little messages on my craft desk telling him he is sacked if he doesn't return full time soon, he did leave a cheeky message saying that means all he knows about craft will be gone to, so I told him thats fine I will start afresh. I now hoping he is starting to worry and will come back (knowing him he will pretend nothing has happened lol).
So my desk..................
stamping for pleasure. A beautiful box with woyww filled with 6 atc's, two gorgeous stamps and a card. I have decided to make a wall hanging/scrapbook page with it all on so I can be reminded of the warm and exciting feeling when I received it. I don't know how other people felt but for me, it gave me a fantastic fuzzy feeling that I had been part of something so special. To the left is some goodies from papercraft inspirations as I am a tester for the magazine, above is some diy washer sets that I thought would look good on a mans card and above is some new books - one about colour as I really have a problem with colour and the other is about those special finishes. Both are fantastic.
wipso's blog) as I forgot to take a pic of it and she was my pif buddy. They are frames from paperartsy, in which I printed on tissue paper and ripped up piesces and done sort of collagey (no such word lol) affect, then I white washed it (big mistate I was looking for vintage and instead go a mess in which I had no time to start again), inside is patterened paper, grunge board letters (that I painted with silver paint then used alcohol inks over it, I really need to play with grunge board as I tried to use distress inks which went all gritty, then I painted it white, tried ink pads again, promarkers and in the end used the silver paint, I didn't have anymore W's left so poor Wipso might start seeing one darken after time) and then sprayed some white flowers with pearl mist and tattered angel spray. All together I really enjoyed doing it even though I had a few problems, but that was the best thing about the pif it made me try something new.
Right I'm off, I'm determined to visit all blogs and comment on as many as blogger will allow, I can't wait to see everyone elses pifs.
Have a fantastic crafty week. Thanks for sharing.
