...which made you all run screaming for the hills...how heeelarious was that! I need very badly to set the record straight here. Although I made them, it was because I had to. It was a job, honest; and they are not in my posession any longer, so just like my lovely Sissy, I will be doing the last minute panic thing, because that, it turns out, is very definitely one of my Christmas traditions! I do love these Patchwork Kingdom characters though, 4 step decoupage from the Crafthouse Press. Who, dear interweb, launched a new product to a waiting world yesterday on QVC.
I know this because I made some of those samples too. Take a look at these terrific box cards and tell me you don't like cutting out. Huh, huh? And they fold flat into an envelope. I hesitate to use the word genius because I suspect them of reading this blog now and then and like all innovators, they must be kept on their toes. Enough to say that I think they're great...and I relish the idea of Christmas versions!
I hit on an idea last night that I thought may be fun - particularly in view of the cathartic nature of sharing. I thought we (that's you interweb, and me) could do a 'what's on my work table this wednesday' feature thingy. Yep. From me, a sort of down market and probably badly photographed version of the sort of thing that real big celeb scrappers do - but theirs involve finished items, links, articles and sponsor giveaways....none of which will happen here. I just wanna see what you're all doing that I'm not...I really like the idea of seeing your work in progress; specially as your finished stuff is always fab. And then I realised that it may well have to be postponed - my current work in progress is to be gift and I don't want to spoil the home-made surprise! So naturally, it would work if you'll take part - leave a comment so I can come and see what's on your table if you're brave enough! Next week I'll be better organised and take part myself! I can't believe I just typed that, it's the most ridiculous and often used phrase in my head and it NEVER comes true. Talking of comments and blah (which I did, briefly...) please welcome Stefcos' picture to the 'followers' board of this blog - I knew she didn't look like a strange grey coloured piece of lego and I knew that her smiley face would be a real boost to this blog. I knew all that because she's my sister and creative role model, but any of you that visit blogs via that board feature will probably enjoy putting her face to her name. Sissy Dunnit. Look out for this name in years to come, we're gonna call our chain of craft stores Sissy Dunnit's; there are loads of thing s to do first though,- living in the same country would be a good start!
