Bits'n'pieces kinda day

Today has been a very strange day......I've done a little bit of lots of different things. Had hoped to work on an Artsycrafts project today......that all went out the window when I discovered my substrate was way too small, so that will be a job for another day. I've been food shopping, walked the dog, lots of phone calls  with Leandra, made some chocolate muffins, played in my altered book a little bit. Cut some fabric for a fabric journal.....hoping to put that together tomorrow afternoon and now I'm exhausted. How the heck did I ever have time to go to work???

So yesterday, I promised to show you Paperartsy's new Vintage stamps....so here goes.....six new plates in total




I think you'll agree that all of these are a must have. Mark and Leandra will have them available on Sunday at the Stevenage show and I'll be sure to be using them there in my demo. I have confirmed with Leandra my demo time for the show, I will be on the stand from 10am - 2pm showing you what I've been up to lately, so stop by and say hello, it will be lovely to see you.

Would you like a little looksee at the progress of the altered book?? It's going to be one of those on going projects where you have a little dabble, think about it, come back to it and then another little dabble. So today's dabble was to add some stencilling to my already prepared pages. Kinda like the way it turned out but I need to put my thinking cap on for the next bit.

OK so that's me for today.....I'm off to cook tea. Hope to be back tomorrow with a fabric journal.......fingers crossed.

The fabric journal sounds intriguing - you're obviously getting to grips with your new machine?! The altered book is gorgeous too.
Weather permitting I will be there at 10 - can't wait to see you and some amazing demos.

Sounds like my sort of day! So glad I saw you and Leandra doing your 'thing' at Glow as I can't come to Stevenage. Did buy 2 of those new plates, the rest are on my constantly updated wishlist :), as are all the Fresco Finish paints I don't already possess. Ooh, ooh, just looked on PaperArtsy website and saw there's another Glow show in September, will you be there too?
