I never imagined that all this would happen today, it all started off as usual, boring, dull,cloudy, a bit of sun, but at a nice temperature. I was wondering what to do so I went to Southport, I just had a need to go get some canvas board.
Anyway back to my crafting, well when I managed to get to it after all the drama. I did some more gelli plate work yesterday, and made about 3 backgrounds, this one I loved. I darkened the edges a bit more with black. I was going for a steam punk feel to it. Then it needed something to go on.
I picked up a few other bits at the craft shop,a desk set, in plain card, which I may eventually decorate. but it has come in so useful already, it had a set of drawers, letter holder, pen holder, stationery tray, and a small note holder. Well the drawers now have bits and bobs in them, it has a nice deep drawer for the DST and other tapes, smaller drawers have the usuall array of stuff.
Here's the other bits I got, all a £1 each, couldn't resist the roses, or the lace. Though I had got some lovely lace the other week, but for a pound this was hard to resist.
Just wondering what excitement there will be tomorrow? Though frankly I think our small street has had quite enough. We are all agreed on one thing, that the new neighbour is a pain in the butt. He seemed nice at the start, but it didn't take him long to show how anti social he could be. We've had the loud music, banging doors, the family party that ended up in a fight... needless to say we are not amused and we've complained. He has a fondness for slamming the front door, so last night I returned the favour (only because my own neighbour is in hospital) by slamming my front door, and making a racket as I went back up the stairs. We do have a nice neighbourhood, no trouble, good neighbours, so if he wishes to stay he'd better improve his behaviour or else.
I've been filling in my mood chart for today, not too bad, and I am being honest, no point otherwise. I hadn't been able to express to my counsellor what I was feeling, so I wrote it all down. Sat at the computer, had a glass or two of wine and let it all pour out. I could see the relief on my counsellor's face, she'd been trying everything. She has the patience of a saint, and a good sense of humour. My mood is okayish today, but that is how it can be, tomorrow is a new day and a new mood. But got things planned craft wise, well ideas at least. That is another scary part of my treatment, I will have to sit down and make a plan, I've never planned anything in my life! Even at uni I'd write the essay then write the plan, so I have no idea about planning, or that I can stick to it.
All for now, hope you have a peaceful weekend, one filled with fun and smiles. Thanks for stopping by.
