Well, I'm getting ahead of myself this week and writing tomorrow's WOYWW today! I should just have time to post this in the morning and then pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground for a quick snoop around some other crafty desks to see what everyone else has been up to this week. If you would like to join us, just jump in, we're a very friendly bunch :o)
Here's what's on my desk this rather dark and chilly Tuesday evening ...
I have three pocket letters to catch up on, so I've gone "shopping" in my stash and filled the basket with goodies for the first one I plan to make tomorrow morning.
To the left of that are some treasures which I found in our local hardware shop - three reels of different types of twine; some grout in powder form which I am hoping to use to make a cheaper alternative to texture paste; and a couple of pots of dye. Each of these items only cost around two quid - what a bargain!!
The dye is for trying out an idea I got from Julie Campbell at Big Picture Classes, where she dip-dyed watercolour paper, wood veneer pieces, ribbons and all sorts to create a funky set of notelets. I'm thinking I could adapt the idea to make my next pocket letter maybe .... but we'll see how it goes, you know that thing where it always looks SO easy when the expert does it???? IRL I will likely end up with very interesting patterns on my fingers, the carpet and my shirt - and a bin full of rainbow-coloured failures, but hey, it will be fun trying ....
Anyway, right now it's time for bed - I have a busy but fun day ahead of me tomorrow! See you over at Julia's Stamping Ground for a fascinating peek into other people's crafty worlds!
Thanks for popping in today :o)
