Today is the start of the course and I need to get down what I want to achieve from the next 3 weeks.


Firstly I want to improve my blogging skills, I want to be able to write better text, include more photos than I have in my other blogs and learn some new bits and bobs that I can add like photo albums etc.


Secondly I want to record the crafting I do, from making something to receiving new supplies and even watching an interesting show on TV. I am also hoping this will help with inspiration when it has run dry.


Finally this will NOT be a record of my day to day life, that belongs elsewhere.


On to today’s entry.


I received my Distress Stickles today color1, there is quite a selection of colours, not sure if I have all those in the picture and they have disappeared up to the attic now so I can’t check. Hopefully I will be able to play with them soon.




I also watched a show on Ideal World with metal embossing and alcohol inks, some really great ideas and strangely some memories of my Grandad who used to do metal embossing a lot. Now I have some metal, some basic embossing tools and the inks so another project to add to the to do list.


For future reference the metal embossing range is from Walnut Hollow though there are other makers as well.

  1. I have some of the stickles & love them. Not sure if they are distress or not, but they have glitter in them.
