I haven’t been around much since Christmas because I’ve been quite poorly with my M.E. and haven’t been able to do much. What spare energy I have had, has been used trying to get to grips with Sheba, my new Black Cat Cougar cutter. As you will see from my last blog post, I’ve finally started to see the light at the end of the tunnel and managed to cut my first successful piece.
This is my desk for this week’s WOYWW. (If you don’t know what WOYWW is, click on the link in my sidebar, which will take you to Julia’s website – she organises this weekly hop around our various studios and craft rooms so we can be thoroughly nosey and check up on how messy we are all being!!)
As you can see, there isn’t much happening! At the back is the card I made with Sheba – I’m really pleased with how it turned out! On the left, the white lump is the defunct drive from my NAS drive, all wrapped up in layers of foam rubber, getting ready to be sent back to Seagate for a replacement under warranty. You wouldn’t believe the trouble I’ve had over this – first of all working through all the troubleshooting to find out what was wrong, and then all the procedure for sending it back – they certainly don’t make it easy! The stipulations for packing are beyond belief, especially as the wretched thing is broken!!!
On the right, is my little face mould that I bought on Ebay a while back – it’s a Sculpey mould as far as I remember – and has lots of different sized faces on it. In an idle moment yesterday, I filled them all with air-dry clay and they are hardening. When they are done they will go in a box ready for use – I’ve got a mixed media project starting to gel in my mind that I want to try with one of them. I bought some cheap canvases in Lidl the other day which will do.
On the brown table is a heap of stuff (as usual) – paperwork demanding attention, and stuff to put away. this always gets neglected when I’m poorly because I’m too brainfogged to tackle it, and haven’t the energy to use up on such boring pursuits as tidying up!
I’m making a real effort to join in WOYWW this week, as I haven’t made a very good start to 2012, have I!
Hope you all have a great week and produce lots of lovely creative stuff.
