What’s on my workdesk this Wednesday? Nothing!
As is of often the case, I am between projects at the moment, and have cleared the desk. Well, not entirely… The black plastic food container on the left has talc in it, which I brush onto my mixed media pages to stop them sticking together. There’s a card with some butcher twine on it which I got recently and can’t decide where I should keep it. My black and white acrylic paints haven’t been put away, and all my distress inks are still hanging about because I don’t know what else to do with them!
Just so you are not bored to death by such a bare desk, I think I’d better show you what I did last week.
Latest project – a Stampin’ Up Mosaic Madness birthday card for a friend:
During the past week I have done two more pages in my recycled mini-album. The first was on education:
and the second was the wedding page.
At the felt-making class last Wednesday evening, we made flowers. I made two poppies and a leaf, which I am going to attach to a hair clip.
I’ve been up and down a bit with my health this week (nothing new there!) and I’ve at last got some peppermint Gaviscon instead of the unspeakably awful aniseed! The peppermint one is only 50% revolting instead of 100%, so bearable, at a pinch. We’ve had some very good news from the vet after our older kitty Beatrice’s day there, having a bladder scan and various other things done – she is clear of infection at last, and the vet is very pleased with her.
A bit of info that might interest you – I was googling for an empty nasal spray bottle this evening and came across a website called Ampulla that supplies no end of different bottles and containers in glass and plastic, and they do a pen spray bottle (it is long and thin, with a pen clip type of cap on it) which they say sprays with a fine mist, and I thought what a good mini-mister this would make! They are extremely cheap – a fraction of the cost of a real mini-mister, so I have ordered some, so I can make sprays from my distress stains (having eventually collected the whole set, I am not about to start buying the distress sprays as well, when all I need to do is decant what I want). It’s another case of thinking outside the box, and being able to get stuff much cheaper a lot of the time, if one looks outside the normal art/craft suppliers who usually charge a lot, especially here in the UK. I also ordered some lovely little blue glass dropper bottles to put my lavender oil in once it’s finished infusing – they will make nice little Christmas presents! I thought I’d also make up a few lavender bags with scraps of lace etc. to go with them. I am interested in making my own skin creams and cosmetics (have already made a brilliant shea butter moisturiser for skin and hair) and they supply lots of containers for such things.
Have a productive and creative week, everybody, and happy WOYWW!
