Here is a LO that i did the other day after getting inspiration from two different sources. The first was from Tracey
who always encourages us to scrap the everyday things, one of Tracey's last posts was about her daughter and her music and the SHUT bedroom door. This so hit a chord with me as it happens in my house all the time so i will have to do a LO about my kids and their shut doors. Anyway i am digressing (how unusual) this LO is about Caitlin's love of perfume and as it was her birthday last month and she was lucky enough to get lots of perfume i just had to do a LO. The second inspiration came from an article in the current issue of Scrapbooking Memories magazine. I used my LO paper as the background for my perfume photo. I think that it all blends in quite nicely, and of course the Craft Queen ribbons.
Yesterday i hosted a " real blog" lunch where i got to talk craft and eat yummy things with Jenni, and Susan and Janelle thank you all for coming i had a lovely day and we got to eat these yummy waffles and some fantastic cupcakes that Bec made. (I think that Susan will be putting a picture of them on her blog)
I also made the ladies some dishcloths to take home and try. It's something that you either like or don't (my DH hates them) I love them and i just have to share this with you- I took my crocheting to my 83 yo M-I-Laws the other day and she asked what i was making. Dishcloths i replied. "ARE WE AT WAR" was her reply. See all things come and go, although back then like quilts they were made as a necessity out of scraps.
On another note Jennifer Mcguire is doing some fabulous tutorials for Two Peas called Thinking Inking the links are up on her blog it goes for 6 or 9 weeks with 3 tutorials per week. You can download a pdf in case you forget the techniques.. This week is crackle paints (which is appropriate for me as i used these very paints at a class last night at Tomorrow's Memories).
OK-whew that was long, i have so many projects waiting for me at the moment and i seem to have a lot of mojo so enough from me i am going to go and craft.
