Wednesday Stamper - Grunge

This is a piece I did after visiting the Wednesday Stamper site I really enjoyed doing this grunge technique. I think I'll have a go at some atcs in this style. Maybe after I've finished the soot technique RAKs that I've been working on for ages. Once again my links aren't working, so here's the long way to it...

Michelle Ward Crusade No. 7 - 'Say What'

Have been lurking around Michelle Ward's site over the last couple of weeks and thought I'd take part in this crusade. Can't provide link so here's the long version -

Sayings used in our house...

'Hello McFly' from Back to the Future Movies - used in our house when someone does something particulary stupid or states the bleedin' obvious.

'Lunch at 12' used by my sis and I to point out that there is an incredibly good looking guy around without being obivous.

'Smile' code word for 'please check my teeth and tell me if anything is stuck in them'. Well used by sis and I.

'My imaginery friend, Petri, did it' - oft used saying by DS (4) whenever I notice something is broken, ruined, not where it should be etc... I'm sure will become the much stated answer 'Petri did it' whenever someone asks 'who did this!'

Dragons of the Crystal Cave

I received the Dragons of the Crystal Cave sets as a Birthday present and since getting them, I have spent ages wondering how I was going to display them. The answer came with an email from Dusk and a search of the online store. These wall sconces look great with the Dragons hanging from them, thank you to DH for being such an understanding fellow and allowing all these lovely creatures into our bedroom and all the other that are dotted around the house. PS. I recommend Dusk very highly for service as I only ordered the wall scones on Tuesday morning and they arrived in the post on Wednesday!

60th Birthday Card & a New Baby

A Vintage Pointy Hat Party for Aunty Katy's 60th Birthday bash. A rather large family gathering at Whiteman Park - luckily we got most of the party done before we all got soaked! The second card I made for a friend who had a beautiful baby girl on Friday 13th. Here's to the young and old who keep us amused and delighted.

Sea Goddess

This is the Sea Goddess. Waiting naked and unadorned, the Sea Goddess has sat on my window sill for more than six months. Inspiration has taken its time and like the ocean, has washed upon the Sea Goddess and left its mark upon her. Finally, the storm has passed and now she is complete.

The School Holidays are Here!!!

Yep, the kids are at home and wanting to get into all my craft stuff - argh!

I think I'll buy them lots of easter eggs and I'll get some art done while the kids are in a chocolate induced coma!! I'm kidding. Really.

As for the wireless broadband - that didn't work, apparently we're 20kms from any of the 3 nearest towers. No chance of getting a signal, but the satellite broadband works really well. Welcome to the real world at last.

I hope to finish off a microscope slide book that I'm working on. I just have to decide whether to solder the edges for leave them with the copper tape. The book pages are laser transparencies stamped with various images and sewn together in the usual book making manner. Here a pic of the piece under construction. The other quondary is how to glue the slides to the transparencies.
Happy Easter everyone.
