Oh it's all really been about the weather hasn't it? Too hot, too muggy, too sunny, too dry and now - too wet!! To be fair we haven't had much in the way of rain here so far but it has certainly cooled down a bit. My heart goes out to anyone who has had to work or travel this last week or so - however being an easily persuaded to stay at home retiree I haven't found it too much of a challenge but know others have.
Here's the desk. I watched a quick video from Sam Calcott and tried out this card. Of course I didn't watch the 10 min video the whole way through so mine ended up going together in a different way because I missed a key instruction. I also managed to miscut the final mat to discover that I had no more of that paper so had to improvise again. But it's essentially an easy make, I like it despite the improvs, it folds flat and turned out quite a mantlepleaser. I might make one for my 'cardmaking' friend who only likes side fold cards. Revenge is sweet.
Work on The Big Project goes on. I have a week left to finish - will I manage to do it in time? The Jury's still out on that one.
(Speaking of juries, if anyone has a chance to catch a NT screening of Prima Facie with Jodie Comer I can highly recommend it. I thought it was very good (a bit gritty at times) and tbh I suspect it has the edge on a stage production simply because you get such a good view!!)
Anyhoo here it is on my desk. It's looking a little more under control now but I have had to give up on some of my mat and layering ideas because it bulks the book up too much. I have to say there have been a few teary moments looking back at all these photos. What a silly old numpty I am.
So, why am I showing you my desk? Well it's our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and have a go yourself.
Stay cool, stay dry, love n hugs Cindyxx
