How long has it been?

I really haven't had the energy or the inclination to do anything apart from my monthly workshops. Things are improving though and I managed a couple of very basic LOs to complete our Tombstone album. Now I need to get the rest of the Arizona trip finished.

I have a number of projects to think about.I have my version of a printers tray to prepare. I have the papers to go in the back of the units and some tissue tape for the edges. A few embellishments are waiting and I will collect some more along the way.

I have 3 canvases that I want to make into a trio to hang somewhere but need to get a distress stain for the base coat.

Then there are several Christmas things to work on, started in the New Year and got no further!

I will get back to regular work soon and then there will be pics as well.

Cards and things

After what seems to be ages I have completed some things and also remembered to bring the camera down from the attic so I can get some other things uploaded. So here we go.


First the Mothers day card I made for MIL. Quite a simple card but she liked it.

mothers day

I finished these three yesterday.



There is a LO with no pictures which is the introduction to the re-enactment of the Gunfight at the OK Corral, the first LO of that series which is Doc Holliday and the ‘card’ I have made to welcome the forthcoming grandson.









Finally a close up




It is not an original idea but one I found at Kate's. A large cotton spool covered in ribbon and some added buttons. A piece of dowel sits in the hole, held in place with some bluetac. The top is a shield shape cut on the Robo, inked and embellished with a quote ‘Welcome to the world'’ some narrow sticky borders and some more buttons. The back is blank for us to write on when the time comes.


Hopefully I will get more done now!
