Many thanks to everyone who has so far left comments for the blog candy, and a warm hello to the new followers, thanks for joining in everyone and good luck!
Day off today, I should have been ironing, but much too hot, so I made up a better day plan (though it was still too hot). Ian and I went for a walk (longer than anticipated) with Hamish, up on the very tops of Haworth Moor, amazing panoramic view! Apart from a coach load of tourists heading towards Bronte waterfalls it was fairly quiet up there which was lovely.
Came back and have now finally finished off the 2 books ready for the HSNW workshop on Saturday. I've made 2 almost identical books as we have to hold the workshop in 2 rooms and so we now have a book for each room. There are 38 people in total, eek! I've tried not to go overboard with it so that it can be finished in a day, but who knows, I've totally lost track of how long it took to make as I've been doing bits here and there!
We are using French Country Starburst Stains and 2 of Kays new stamp sheets. Does anyone else have an inner panic about projects, putting off sticking anything down in case you want to tweak it a bit? Well, once I'd been let loose with the DST, that was it, I made a commitment! It's now a huge relief to have them finished, so no need to worry about them at least!
Now to make up the packs for everyone!! I've tried to be mindful of making things easy for everyone on the day, but I'm sure it will be the normal chaos that comes with large workshops like this. See, we all like to chatter at workshops don't we, so would it be mean to say no chatting 'till you are all colouring in later?? Umm, maybe bad tutor manners:)) I hope I don't have to shhhsh anyone, cos then I'll have the whisperers, lol! Mind you, I think they will be lucky to get a chance to talk with me waffling, like I am now.... But we do need to get those backgrounds dry early... Anyway, I've a mountain of card to cut and brads to count etc, so I think that'll keep me busy during the next couple of days.
I have more cards on the go with the same items, I did finish one of them last night, hopefully Debbie will take a photo of it tomorrow for me. I think the French Country Starburst Stain colours work so well with the Funky Flowers and Frames stamps, I LOVE them, and I'll probably bore you with these cards for a while!
Jo, Hamish says hi to you and your woofers, and yes, we will be at the Stamp Magic show at Doncaster later this month, so I hope you will come and say hello (to me that is, not Hamish!)
