Still working hard on the recycled mini-album, which I am determined to finish by 11th December!!
You can see it lying on a scratch paper that I’ve made from the background of this page and previous work. The page I have just completed is on my dad’s interest in astronomy. You can read more detail about the creation of this page if you scroll down to my previous post, and the posts below that, which deal with other pages I’ve been working on since last week’s WOYWW, for those who are interested in following the progress of this album.
Also on the desk you can see the inevitable dirty paint water (different colour this week!), the paints I used for the background for the page, and my glass bead gel medium, which I also used on this page. Various pens, paint brushes, gel mediums, spray sealant, bubble wrap printing blocks, distress inks… the general detritus of a busy art desk lol!
Not a great deal of other news this week, apart from the fact that we’ve again been having major problems with mum and her awful behaviour… it is really stressing me out, but as always, she is behaving quite well following on from the latest row, although she did have a blip with my hubby while we were out for lunch with a friend today. She gets extremely difficult if she isn’t constantly the centre of attention.
I have been reasonably well this week, apart from a couple of evenings with a weight on my chest and palpitations as a result of said stress, and an M.E. crash on the recliner yesterday afternoon and evening. From now on, of course, there is lots going on, but as long as I finish the album in time I’m not too bothered!
I haven’t forgotten that I didn’t post about last week’s soap making class – too many other things to post about! I will try and do it together with tonight’s class.
I haven’t done much knitting this week, and am still picking up stitches around the neck. Nearly finished now! Watch this space.
My diet continues to go well, although the weight loss is pretty slow these days. I have now lost 2 stone 1 lb (29 lb) since I started back in June, and I am now officially no longer obese, but merely overweight!
Happy WOYWW everybody, and have a great creative week. Again, my apologies for not visiting as many of you as I would have liked, but not much time to be on the computer at the moment.
