WOYWW? Dust Vultures and Pile-ups...

Greetings to all fellow WOYWWers...Rubber squatters have taken up residence. Many rookies from last week's stash show... but some have been loitering for ages. I catch a glimpse of a few and become quite nostalgic. There's a few 2011er's in there.
I forced myself to sit in the office to avoid crafty distraction and cleaned the lot. More dilly-dallying is not an option. I have the painters in and hence the Dust Vultures. The bunnies legged it. The next victim is my craft room. I have to uproot and shift my entire inky den... which at the moment seems more of a surreal thought than having a baby.

A little twirl in the spotlight...
I have a tutorial in the April Craft Stamper all about Wendy Vecchi Art Parts. I'm also yippity dippity over the moon to say I've been asked to join their Design team. Gas and air please!!!! I just love creating and designing. Deadlines and Mojomania already await!
Here's a sneaky peek of the piece and cor blimey, my cheesy grin too. I was sat on Brighton Pier at the time!
More dabblings for Less is More. Last week yummy scraps and this week neutral tones. Loving the themes! If next week could just be banana custard... I got show-cased last week too! Thank you! Breaking out the Tim stamps. Loving the Remnants set in Coffee, Sepia and Sienna Archival inks.
I stamped the full sentiment, cut out just a few words, all mounted on foam tape for extra lift! No pun intended...
The new My Mojo Monthly challenge is up and it's a 'Vintage Vibes' month! Here's a retro handbag of 1950's glamour to inspire you! Do join in...! How many exclamation marks does a girl need?!!!
So that was my bit of life in a bloggy nutshell. Got a bit of desk-top gossip too? Feel free to join in at Julia's here!


I'm away... Think I might try out the Renaissance look with all that dust. Thanks very much indeedily for calling by. Have an exceedingly good Wednesday! Sarah.

Fiona@staring at the sea said...

I feel your pain, we're decorating here too. Many congratulations on the DT spot :o)

Doone said...

Sarah you should be putting your feet up and taking an hours afternoon nap if your legs are starting to swell - and I'm not joking, dusty buddies are not dangerous, nor are dust vultures, but high blood pressure is. Look after yourself (and baby) first then the house, I will pop into town later and pick up a copy of the stiff cramper - and see the article for real, congrats on the design position,but again, make sure you get plenty of rest - life will be much easier as will the birth if you are fit and well and rested. If like my Sis in London your midwife and Gp checks are minimal and cursory - please do be sure someone checks your bp and watches how swollen you ankles are - be sensible (oh I am a nag) - how many weeks is it now? ( oh how nosy am I?)

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sarah, snap! I'm having to uproot and shift my entire craft room too ... moving to a larger space ... and I'm not good at upheaval :( Hope everything goes smoothly for you and your will be settled with your inky stuff again soon. Read your brilliant tutorial in CS and must congratulate you on joining the Design Team - they know a good thing when they see it :) Hope you're having a great WOYWW day. Elizabeth x #22

lisa said...

Oh I don't envy you being uprooted, still it'll all be worth it in the end.
I spotted you in CS and read it all avidly. It's a great article. Congrats on being published.
Happy WOYWW

well done for being first to the Stamping Ground this week, and congrats for your piece in the magazine. I used to subscribe when I lived in UK but it is way too expensive to do it out here (I live in Spain now). But my sister is coming out in a week's time and she always bring me the latest copy so I may get to see this one. Kate 90 x

Good luck with the upheaval, I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. Plus, a question... How old does 'vintage' need to be for your My Mojo Monthly challenge??
