Hi there. Thanks for popping in! Paul’s left me! Well, he’s taken up residence at HOCHANDA , because he’s on telly yet again tomorrow evening at 6pm. Qué? You thought he had actually left me?!? Now be serious. We are family. Maria took all the midmonth One Day Specials off his hands, so that he can lend a hand with last minute TV shows as the gaps appear in the roster. Believe you me, we’re on it like a car bonnet!
Rally Round !!
Dave came home this afternoon, and caught me talking to myself up here above the garage. Oh dear, he must have thought, she’s finally lost the plot. No, no, no. I was timing this Sunday’s Craftalongabarbie, trying to work out how long each project is going to take! And trying to work out how long YOU and Janice will take!! I hope you’ve got your stash ready to go? Stamps first. Then Stencil. Then Die. Then Groovi. We won’t have time to finish the Groovi one, so that’s your homework!
I had to stop because the old neck was giving me stick again. Dave could see the discomfort. “Give your nest a wreck” he said. And we curled up. I don’t know what’s happened to his wiring, but he is a dab hand at spoonerisms nowadays!!
Nest your Wreck. How about Wreck your Nest. That seems to be a popular pastime at the moment. Build a nest, then wreck it. But heyho. This too shall all pass. Everything does, you see. I had a good talk with my dear friend Mike Bossom this morning. You know, the über-talented Welshman who has been quietly pioneering Encaustic Art for ever. Blimey. If he could just bottle that wisdom and sell it….
Great news! We are planning a TV show together: A hot and cold show. Mike will present hot waxart at one end, and I will present cold Gelpress printing at the other end. And then – we will swop ends, and he will dive into the Gelli, and I will do some ironing! What a cool plan, eh? He has also offered to take on a Craftalong Sunday some time soon. That will be awesome, I am so down for that!! There’s nothing like crafting along with Mike. He takes you through the creative processes gently and effortlessly. I must say, I do love encaustic art. I find it very empowering. And exciting, because you don’t really know what you will get.
But now I am going indoors, to wreck my nest.
Love & Hugs,
