Woyww....120....Some little gems!

Good Morning all Hope this finds you all well and ready for another wednesday Snoop,

around the world of craftiness.Yes where do the days go it's wednesday again so means WOYWW.So pop by Julia's Blog and join in the fun!

Well big thankyou to all who left kind wishes re my eye problem.It is much better not as painful but have been taking it easy past week.Optic Neuroitis they treating me for.

Anyway last monday well high winds here in Norfolk ,power cuts werent the word and after about the fourth bingo computer went well mental...Glad to say at weekend was fixed and luckily not lost anything as had back up...phew.Well it was good in a way i had not computer except missed like crazy.whatever did we do without them i ask?IT gave my eye time to rest .Very little crafting got done as mojo and myself with the pain didnt feel like doing much.

So last week took leaf ou of Hels book and cut some T/holtz die cuts up as stock running low .Also cut some for my dear friend Cheryl...Reminds me must post off!.Then i did some making well made /decorated some pins whihc you can see below using beads charms ect.So easy to do and i always stick with clear accents as sticks well and yes clear.What ya think?

Now this is how i left my desk yesterday and looks like this morning.I think first task will be to give a good clean to my craft mat!rather inky ,painty ,tad gluey.

Yes the good old Paperartsy fresco paint has come out again i just love this stuff especially this one colour "Vintage Lace".As i am altering acouple of jewellery boxes ,also a small note book whihc i have painted and then added deco art weatherwood to as you can see better in below piccy it's come out lovely im pleased with it .Now today if time will try and finish said book and boxes and alter them.not sure what yet but some sort inky mess no doubt.
Weathered Wood look small note book.

Here's piccy of the boxes shut two different sizes.



Also didn't get chance to upload these last week my finished ATC' folders and ATC's this is for another swap im in at the beginning of October.I have used various Sir T's stamps,papers from crowded attic pad .Various distress inks.The Atc's below are a couple from the inside of the holder.

I am entering them this week into Simon Says Stamp n Show ,as this week's theme is

ATC's .




Well just before i go last week got very gulity after seeing various peeps already starting cards,tags for crimbo .So thought instead feeling guilty would start.

Well not crafting as yet just cant get into it .But well in spirit as they say.

Hope you like my new banner at the top of my blog....lol

Have fab creative wednesday,stay safe and well.

Love n hugs

Good to read the eye is better, especially after a bit of rest. However, I think you have been pretty busy, even while resting that eye. I really love those pins. Kinda wish I knew what you used as your base.

Glad your eye is on the mend. I'm loving those pins how did you do them? Is it a normal straight long pin or one that already has a bead on the end? You need to do a tutorial, pretty please xx

Great work you have here today, love those pins, and the crackle is fab - I love that Vintage Lace colour too.... have a good week.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Well, even though you were proper poorly, you still managed to achieve more than I do in a week *grin*. Love those little pins - I'd just have some of them in my pin cushion to love and drool over every day!! x

Hi Honey - glad to hear you are resting that eye but I am not sure my definition of resting and yours match. Resting means no die cutting, no beading (although have to admit those pins look fabulous)and no painting but then who can resist Fresco stuff (isn't that crackle amazing). Oh and no atc's either. You have been busy but get resting that eye. Hugs Neet #7

I enjoyed getting a peek at your work. Nicely done. I had to go look up Crimbo though - had not heard that yet. And it is still too early . . . take it from a procrastinator.

Love your banner fa la la la la...la la la la! (wink) Your pins are wonderful! I really like them and I'll add that to the list of things I want to try! Thanks for the inspiration. Hope we get to see your jewellery boxes when they're done! Go on.....take a leap! Start that Christmas creativity, you'll be surprised how it gets you thinking about the Holiday Season and gives you a good jump on your cards.

Shoshi said...

Hi, Jude! Love the pins, and the crackle effect is great. I've been doing some of that lately, with emulsion paints, and some crackle glaze I bought years ago for a decorating project. You can use PVA glue too - really cheap to do, and looks great! Sorry to hear you've had optic neuritis but glad it's improving. As a fellow M.E. sufferer, I'm off to explore your new blog.

Hope you've had a wonderful WOYWW!

Great banner Jude and interesting post. Glad to hear your eyesight is improving although it sounds incredibly painful ... anything with neuritis sounds very painful Love your crackled wood piece and the gorgeous pins ... it's a wee while since I made some so you've reminded me to get the makings out and do a few for my stash. Your ATCs are great too.

I’ve a giveaway over on my blog, you might like to take a look at:- http://silverscrappers.blogspot.com/2011/09/my-memories-suite-digital-software.html
