Hi woyww's, if your not sure what I'm on about go and visit Julia and have a peep at fellow crafters desks.
Can't believe its come around again so quickly.  I managed to finish what was on my desk last week, jewellery for my sister, which you can have a peep here.  So whats on my desk this week ....... a mess lol
I needed to sort out my fabric so I could have a go at some fabric flowers.  I am doing a fabric course at My creative classroom its a great place to find lessons on different types of craft.  Its normally anywhere between $15-$30 dollars for a 4-6 week course.  I found this on Glenda Waterworth (from graphicus) started doing lessons there.  Her rubber stamping course is brill.  With every course there is downloadable lessons and lessons that you watch.  There is also free courses as well that gives you tasters. 

As you can see I also spreaded on to the chair, sometimes I really wish I didn't start the job of trying to find the fabric that was at the bottom of the box.  Now its out I will have to sort it Doh.

On my desk is what I was going to start this evening.  I have 3 cards to send off by Tuesday before I leave to see Tim Holtz, and also have a relaxing two days in a hotel just me and Ade, my sister is having the kids. Bliss, (mind you now their older caring for them is not too bad, but still you have to be a taxi, teacher, hostess for mates, bank ...... and the list goes on LOL.  Some crimbo fabric has escaped onto my desk (planning on putting it out of the way for a few months!) and my Murry and Ethel stamps that I will hopefully get to play with this evening.
Hope you all have a fab week.  Hopefully I will get to take a pic next week just before I leave.

17th February .....  Im actually doing a fabric course now, I did Glendas course last year, both of them the basics and the techniques class, she was brilliant and her courses are still running.

Goodness, what a lot of fabric. You'll be making hundreds of flowers with this lot.
The classes sound great. I love Glenda W. she has been an inspiration for years so it'll be interesting to see what you create from her classes.

Dear, Kezzy
occasionally I landed on your blog and didn't want to go without writing you a word. I very like the artwork you do and am sure to take a look again from time to time.
By the way, I have a weekly candy to give away, if you like try your luck;
Hugs, Karina

Oooh I am so jealous of your fabric pile!! It all looks so lush sitting there in a heap. Thanks for your visit to my blog, the papers I used to cover the chipboard pieces is 7Gypsies - Lille. I think it is a newish one of theirs as I hadn't seen it before and its mostly creams and reds which is a lovely combo. hugs Annette

Thanks for visiting me!

Hi Kezzy, just wanted to say that House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenges welcome all forms of art that include an original House Mouse Design image, including the decoupage sheets from JS. Hope you can join us soon. Have fun with Tim Holtz, he was in our town for two days last summer and I took four classes, so much fun.
