Thanks for popping in. It’s Monday again. Strange, since every day seems like a Saturday nowadays! Pottering around the house, doing a bit of Spring cleaning, and finding all sorts of little arty samples and things I am loath to part with…
First up, the lino prints I created a while ago, and we made into stamps. Makes me think I’d like to pursue that artform again. I had actually booked a 2-evening course for Dave and myself in Brighton as a little Christmas treat, should have been about now, but have had to put that on hold until things improve. Big shout-out for Helen at the art studio called BipArt. Blimming brilliant teacher. I look forward to attending another of her courses in the springtime.
If my sums serve me well, this whole collection, which usually retails at £44.95, is now half price to club members. Barrrrrgin! But only until tomorrow. CLICK HERE.
I also found a little square mountboard picture. Doesn’t get much simpler than this, but I love it…speaks volumes. Can’t think where the background circle stamp comes from though… any ideas?
It’s funny how little arty samples can evoke emotions, isn’t it?
It is true to say that spring cleaning improves focus and attitude. It surely helps clear your head and promote positivity. The Chinese see spring cleaning as a new beginning. Not only is it an opportunity to clear out physical clutter, but also a cleansing of the mind or any regrets or mistakes.
Well, I’m 2 black sacks in, and feeling good! We keep so much stuff, don’t we !! Creams and shampoos and cosmetics and all sorts of stuff that I’ve hung onto for so long, that the best by date is a decade out!! Gift Sets of shower gel and moisturizing lotion that have been in the cupboard since we moved in 13 years ago! Yep. Brought them from the old house! But there’s the crafter in me – AND the daughter of a German mother, deeply traumatised by World War II – you keep everything, because you never know when the supply will be cut off. The fact that it’s turned into a science project and would probably stink to high heaven of OLD and STALE matters not! If the Russians are coming over the back fence you’ll be glad of it. That’s what my Mum says. Thus spake the voice of experience. Personally, I wouldn’t be too concerned about body lotion if the Russians were at the back door. Oh dear oh dear. It‘s not even funny.
The Craft member’s sale ends at midnight tomorrow, so there’s still time to have a cheeky little looksie. Thank you so much for supporting the sale – it’s been brilliant. Now the crew are in full production making everything! That’s our pledge. Even if something sells out, we still make it for you to honour the sale price. Just be patient if your orders take longer. Manufacture takes time, especially with this volume of orders.
