Am back in the land of WOYWW after my week's absence... but sadly don't really have anything to show on my desk this week:
I haven't had chance to do any crafting since we got back from our little holiday so the desk is still in the state of chaos in which I left it before we headed off down to sunny (and boy, it sure was!) Dorset.
I do however have some crafty photos to share because I actually managed to do some crafting while we were on hols. :)
My lovely sister-in-law has been my crafty accomplice and enabler for ooooh, nearly 9 years now! She's responsible for getting me into scrapbooking, for getting me hooked on Stampin' Up!, and for generally encouraging, aiding and abetting my crafty addictions and stash shopping! ;) But in all this time, we had never yet actually gotten to craft together.
Well, last week, we finally did. I left hubby with the kids for a few hours and spent a fabulous afternoon at my SIL's house playing with our Gelli plates and making lots and lots and lots of gorgeous, messy, painty backgrounds. Just look at the results!
Not only that, but after dashing back to the rented holiday house to cook dinner for the gang, I abandoned hubby and kids for another couple of hours and went with SIL to her weekly cardcrafting group. It was lovely to meet her crafty friends and spend some time crafting with a group of lovely, creative ladies. And we made this gorgeous card....
...using a faux-patina technique which I'd not tried before.
All in all, I had a lovely crafty afternoon/evening, spent some great time with my SIL and came away with some gorgeous creations. What more could a girl ask for? :)
Thanks for stopping by. Normal crafting service will no doubt be resumed for next week's WOYWW.
