WOYWW

Hello all,

This is going to be short and sweet. I am in mega house-wife, host and tour guide mode with all the Dutch folk here...I am bamboozled after two days full duty and still feeling dodgy. Thank you for all the get well messages. I will just have to send them all off to the chippy tomorrow (and explain later that, yes - our Brit chips are supposed to be a bit soggy - yum!) Tomorrow (well that'll be today now but I still need to get to bed!) we are off to Ross-on-Wye to meet up with the previous load of Netherlanders...to be touristy. I am secretly just excited about going to a craft shop there - just a general one but good enough for a few yippie-doooos - as here on my home turf the options are a bit skinny.
I have added a Shop till you Drop list to my Blog with a few suggestions and also Inspiration Avenue to just let you savour some more colours, tones and moods - enjoy!
Today's recommendation is: Loveology  
Don't you just love the name...?

And I will leave you with two snaps...
The first one of total chaos during a mad session trying to be all done with the CH course for week 4...


The next one is the result of lots of splodging and punching...(paper not people).

This is my take on the CH project for this week.
Quite pleased that I pushed myself to go for a more modern colour scheme that still worked with a vintage feel.

Just wondering - who else has an on-going love/hate relationship with their Glossy Accents nozzle? Mine is like a charming ex that annoys you right up until the last minute. Without success you try all your best moves to get it's attention and just at that final moment when you threaten to dump it - it comes up trumps and you forgive it once again...sigh.

Have a good nosey round and enjoy WOYWW and the rest of your week.

there is a shop in Ross On Wye that sells dolls houses and all things dolls house (top of the hill turn right at the 'market hall' and tucked into a side street ) the friendly people in the deli/cafe will tell you where she is - and I swear to every craft god in heaven you would be mad not to go get some of her 'wall' papers - they are THE best design papers I have seen in years - and she once gave me and Niall some paint in an icecream tub

Carmen said...

Great tip someone once told me. Store your Glossy Accents upside down. They always behave now ;)

I love your CH project and you have me fancying chippies now. Mmmm that salt & vinegar smell.

Sheila said...

Great project!
I totally agree with the glossy accents. It has a mind of its own.

A very busy and creative desk. I love your vintage picture, the colours work so well.
Glossy Accents - used to have the same problem but I now use Stampin Up Crystal Effects, its the same thing but doesnt get stuck up, if you know what I mean.
Sorry this is late - have a wonderful weekend
