woyww

A bit of a mess actually.  Still sorting out stuff hanging around from the holiday like the passports and Amy's goodie bag  (I will put in the post.... I promise).   Trying to make a quick card using the Twinkie or Karin stamps from Stampotique coloured with watercolours.  Love those stamps.

Didn't get to post last week so I couldn't explain that I have a new shelf on my desk.  Made of raw pine and I coloured it with Alcohol Inks because I am lazy.  Turned out beautifully and even DH couldn't believe I had stained, polished and it was dry in 10 minutes ready for him to assemble.   Now trying to catch up on all those jobs without losing the holiday feeling ...

  18. No wonder I missed the shelf, it looks like erm, part of the furniture - am really amazed at the finish it took - great idea. As for losing the holiday mode - I know, I understand...and I didn't go anywhere near as exotic - damn that looks good!
