I knew what I wanted to do, which sometimes happens, but doesn't always work. Then I chose my bits and bobs, a frame, silhouette of a ladee, small tag and then set about making my first rosette. Looked a bit daunting, and it was fiddly, made mistake of making first one too wide and not long enough, but chopped it in half. Next problem, no hot glue... so superglue to the rescue!
So that was all my bits and bobs done. I was getting seriously tempted to order the pastes DB was demoing, the looked lovely, had the bigger kit been on easy pay I'd have gone for it. Splodemat man was there, guess I'll have to get me one of those mats, my current craft mat has seen better days and my blending can, er, leave something to be desired at times. Was also liking the stencils... so much stash and so little cash :-(
I then checked my emails, paypal had deleted my card! Yikes, but only because I'd failed to put the new one on... doh. So did that and realised that the money I'd earned from my craft sales was still in my pp account... oooh... yes of course I spent some of it! Chose some dies, and still got pennies to spend!
I have decided to invest in a hot glue gun. I was using one on my art weekend and it proved very handy. I love my pinflair, but some stuff needs to be stuck down rightaway and superglue is just too risky.
Well tomorrow I'm off to the recycling centre to get rid of the stuff from airing cupboard, off load other stuff on to friend for her fair, supermarket shop, via argos for hot glue gun - they want 18 quid for one on CnC, are they nuts? Do I care if it is pink, nope, just as long as it sticks things down I don't care if it is dayglo yellow. I had the same feeling about the storage thing for the pens that they were flogging, my reaction was: why? A friend has converted an unwanted CD rack to take her pens, mine are in a clear plastic bag. Some crafter emailed to say she had 17,000 stamps... even DB was gobsmacked, my thoughts were - she has actually counted them, and where the hell does she keep them all?
On that note... must see how many challenges I can enter this piece?
