Well I've just got back from taking my son and 3 of his friends to Reading for Reading Festival (the highlight of his year!). I dumped - sorry dropped! - them at the garage at the corner of the site along with loads of other parents doing the same thing - it's always a bit manic. We had to go back to 2 of their houses before even leaving Worthing as 2 of them had forgotten vital stuff (James was one of them!) Then I nearly reversed over their keg of beer as I left, as they'd left it just behind the car!
James enjoyed his birthday - he described it as a Festival sandwich - going to Reading today and then he and Vikki (our eldest), who's 21, took out youngest, Katie (12), to V at Chelmsford on Saturday! Her first festival and Muse were playing!They had a great time.
Haven't had much time to get in my art room, needless to say. Have got a couple more storage photos though. Lynn commented how well organized I was - not true - it's a case of necessity or else everything disappears into the black hole! This next idea I pinched from her - thanks Lynn! - storing the UM stamps in plastic document boxes. You can get 2 full sets in each and I've also added a sheet of card with the index sheet on the inside.
These are Elusive Images Snow is Falling...
I then moved all my inkpads into seed trays.
I couldn't resist stamping these BLine Designs (available in the UK from L. B. Crafts) onto Stampbord - they come as a set and just seemed to cry out for 2 inch Stampbord squares.
Usually I colour the Stampbord first, but this time I haven't so I'll be interested to see how these turn out. What colours shall I choose - that's the exciting bit isn't it? You'll have to wait and see!
However I can't leave you without a little colour! I made these ATCs a while back after a project I'd done with Impression Obsession stamps. The papers are from one of the Artylicious CDs. They say exactly what I feel!
