And therefore yesterday is forgotten - forge on and be creative JuliaDunnit, it's about less whingeing and more doing!
I've got a bit of a micro obsession going at the moment..one which I cannot understand - you've seen the cards I put on this 'ere blog - they aren't exactly laden with flowers - I don't use them. I have a jar of Prima flowers from about 5 years ago that is mostly unused still....I like stamping
flowers, but I don't add them as embellishments. Well since Shopkeeper Gal showed me a cute homemadesy flower die, (and forced me to buy this set and the one with the straight edge - man she's so persuasive) I've been trying to work them into things. I think I haven't used them because I like the details and embellishments on a card to be relevant, and I often look at a card with, say, a chandelier stamped onto it and wonder why it has a flower stuck on the corner. The answer of course is because it can have whatever the maker jolly well wants on it, and if flowers are the thang, then that's the thang, y'all. I know, it's never any of my business, but I can have an opinion if I'm tactful, right? Turns out that I'm clearly hugely influenced by trend...(I knew that really, I just rail against my own lack of imagination) and I'm off on a floral thing myself. This is actually a card destined for the Midsummer Madness Card Marathon, so don't tell..just understand about the flower thing, right.
And I'm going to do something else today. Stretch the limbs, look at other people's imagination in play. Already dropped Mr D at work and possession of the car calls for a bit of out and about. Miss Dunnit doesn't know it, but she's coming with me - so I need to go and awaken her. She'll be charm and love personified, don't worry. A morning at a craft fair with her Mummy - what could be better. Lunch Lady Jan starts her craft fair season today, so I think it only reasonable that I go and snaffle stuff before anyone else! It's in Pewsey until 1.30 at the Bouverie Hall, by the way, just in case you're at a loose end for mileage!
Oh and - if you're in the mileage mode, drop in at Tidworth too - Shopkeeper Gal is at Kraft Crazy, Station Road all day. At your service of course, see if you can resist her charm.
