Thanks for popping in. Been working away at the Sunday TV show demos today. Got some very lovely stamps and dies and stencils to showcase. I do hope you like them. Here’s a snippet from one of the projects I hope to be showing you during the Sunday 2-4pm show on HOCHANDA
The new blog format is proving to be a challenge, I must say! In the front garden, what you are looking at, nothing has changed at all. All peachy. But behind the curtains, it’s altogether a different story! Honestly, if I could retreat for a week, and do nothing but fanny about with the inner workings of the blog, I know for sure I would crack it. And I’d probably even enjoy getting my head round all the super duper tricks and settings. But it’s like everything else in my life; I learn the bare essentials, what I need to get by, get the job done. And then I learn to do that very efficently and quickly! Peu a peu, time permitting, I learn another trick here and there. Or Jim shows me a short cut. And in due course I could even be perceived as quite the expert. Until they change the format, and I slide straight back down the ladder to Beginagenn.
Ah well. It’s not terminal. Perhaps I should set aside half an hour every day, just to press buttons and see what happens. But to be perfectly honest, if I’m going to allocate half an hour to something new, tinkling away on the old piano indoors sounds far more appealing, don’t you agree?
And then there’s pottery. Term starts next week. Can’t wait! I’ve already signed up for an additional Raku day AND a pottery throwdown (that means a day on the wheel again). I’m thinking that the flower heart design above would look very lovely on a tile. And I’ve drawn some really funky designs to try on the tiles. Papercuts too, so I’ll use them as masks too, but more earthy. I’ll show you when I’ve tried it out…
There has to be some balance, doesn’t there, between work and play? It’s gone 7pm already, and I’m still not done for the day. So much for my New Year’s resolve, to clock off earlier! But but but – just because it didn’t go so well today with the work/life balance thing, doesn’t mean I can’t try again tomorrow, does it.
Time to go foraging for food. that’s the other thing! I don’t eat all day, and then in the evening I’m gnawing at the fridge door!
Love & Hugs
