Thanks for dropping in.
I think DROP is the word of the day.
The kettle’s on because I need a DROP of Rosie Lee.
The sun’s pouring through the window here –
and life is good.
Friday’s blog a private peek.
Well, what can I tell you except that I DROPPED my Ipad on my toe this morning, stumbling around in the dark,
trying not to wake anybody.
I didn’t break my Ipad.
But I think I broke my toe!
Ipad Air my eye!
Ipad Breeze as in Breeze block!
Not going to take a picture of it.
Photos of peoples’ wounded body parts is not really that pleasant, is it?
I was lying in bed, wide awake at 3 in the morning
with Wurka on the left, and Hollick on the right,
freaking out about the length of my
Got-to-be done-by-Monday list.
Finally I decided that the only way to deal with it
was to deal with it.
So I quietly gathered up my clothes in the dark and crept into the bathroom. Forgot I had the Ipad clutched under my arm.
(Had taken it to bed to read the hilarious limericks).
Remembered it very quickly when it landed on my foot though.
Ipad’s fine, and my foot will heal…
But the good news is I have done all my prep for the TV and it’s not even lunchtime! Love ticking those boxes…
Time to DROP a meal into my brother.
He is ill again, poor Steve. Pesky kidney stones again.
Let me show you something I did this week,
whilst getting ready for the show.
It’s supposed to look like a Meadow of wild flowers.
I thought the fairies would look lovely fluttering around.
It’s not finished yet;
I still want to add detail to some flower heads, but I do like it.
Check out the bluebells. Can you see them?
You can if you step away and squint…
Squint long enough and you may even see the fairies!
I DROPPED paint directly onto the paper with the tip of the brush to make the larger flowers.
DROPPING the paint into place like that
gives you so much more control!
I put on my Clarity Apron (thank goodness!)
dug out some paint –
Water colour paints and Paperartsy Chalk paint.
Used a Megamount as a paint palette because I couldn’t find the lovely porcelain one that makes me feel like a REAL artist!
Then I proceeded to flick loads of different colour blends
at a sheet of water colour paper.
I tried using my electric toothbrush, and it worked fine – on the apron, on my face – in fact everywhere!
A little even landed on the water colour paper!
So trying this technique on live TV was, I decided, not an option.
Hahaha! See the toothbrush handle in the pic?
Dave thought I had finally lost the plot.
I’ll give it to Jim. He can use it for a Banner backDROP!
There we are.
A glimpse into the mad mind of an overwhelmed,
I shall see you on the telly on Sunday, Create & Craft 9-11am
You can’t miss me – I’m the one with yellow teeth.
Cadmium yellow !
Thank you so very very much everyone,
for the gift of limerick laughter.
We were rolling around in bed.
I kept reading them out to Dave.
It was the ones which didn’t rhyme at all that cracked me up most!
We tried to pick a winner, but it was impossible.
The strimmer one, the lawn mower one, the dairy one –
the list goes on and on!
So I hope you will agree with me that a random pick is fair.
Let me close my eyes and scroll with the cursor….
Ha! Twas meant to be:
Ironically, the random pick is BridgetCG – The Strimmer Fairy!
Let me go copy paste it for you…
There once was a fairy called Mary
Who’s legs were frightfully hairy
So she got out the strimmer
And in just a glimmer
Her legs were once more light and airy.
£20 Gift Voucher on its way to you Bridget,
as soon as you tell me where to post it!
