Yes if I recall correctly the 15th is Carmen day - yep she should be back on line, getting the little hamster in the hamster wheel inside the PC whirring away as it hooks back up to the great big thing we call the internet...
Fingers crossed she arrives safely, I mean Carmen you've missed so much there's been cruises and birthdays, phases of Noel Coward, Kaftans, sport, books being read, loved ones home creating chaos and that's all in others households, here well I've gone into mental meltdown, still trying to sort the utility room out, eating like it's a new found fad and it's Monday morning which means work - I mean honestly what is happening to this crazy world! Rocking Your World has been ongoing and we've had some great posts, so tell us is the new house still a vision of cardboard boxes, or are you serenely sat in your new stu-stu-studio, looking out over Carmenville thinking how completely up to date and sorted you are? Sipping a cuppa and wondering how to plan your day creatively because you've nothing else to do?? What do you mean no LOL?
Anyway fingers crossed you are back today and we can find out about your fabulous time away from us?
Right best post something crafty too - hold up let me see what's in my bag of delights this morning, a bright and sunny morning in August there must be a Christmas layout somewhere
Then another art journal page that I've done recently I enjoyed 'filling in' this missing components on this one.
I stumbled across Shimelle's cybercrop over the weekend which had a timescale of - wait for it - one week - now that's my kind of cybercrop I can't abandon ship completely to just scrapbook out but I can manage some scrapbooking of an evening so I'm looking forward to doing more of these layouts this week - head over to Shimelle's blog to see what she came up with.
I am considerably behind on Darcy's 52 words I got stuck on the word 'community' - well actually I got stuck on an image to use - I did I really did, but given the riots over the last few weeks and the discussions that have been had around the situation I'm thinking of discussing that to get me moving forward, I was hoping that a certain Sunday newspaper would have images in their magazines but I forgot that the magazines are often several weeks in front on the printing side of things, so I'm going to have to settle for a few newspaper images.
I've also started thinking about the 'C' word now I don't know what word you were thinking about but I meant the one that happens on the 25th December - honestly - NOW STOP THROWING CUSHIONS AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN, I know it's early to be thinking about it but I like making homemade gifts, it's something I've always enjoyed doing so now I'm trying to find things I can make? What kind of things have you made for this event? Do you prefer to make or buy, do you get satisfaction out of buying or out of making? I'm assuming that everyone celebrates it but I'm aware that some won't so for you do you celebrate something else and do you have similar gift giving? I for one don't like the 'commercial' aspect of it, it drives me insane which is why I like making and giving because then it is a gift from the heart.
Right need to get dressed 7.36am - 24 minutes til we set off and I need another cuppa to put my slap on (my version of make up is more akin to clown than beautician hence the statement slap), and some clothes (I'm sat in PJ's at the moment - honestly where is your mind) !
If you happen by here to listen to my ramblings leave me a comment, it's lovely to see who has been visiting.
