This photo was taken at dusk on Tuesday - about 8.30pm. I found myself with an hour to kill between commitments on Tuesday afternoon and had to wrench the idea of sitting outside from my mind...I needed to stay fragrant and relatively cool! So, guess what - I flung open the patio door, pulled the first photo out of the pile 18.6 kerjillion waiting to be scrapped, located a sketch and went for it. And that's what you can see on the desk.
Of course it isn't finished - one hour, remember! You can see that the carnations are surviving wonderfully, and that I was using buttons. I couldn't be bothered to 'string' the bunting so I glued a teeny button on to emulate pegs. After all, it's not breaking my button bank exactly! The deckchair is minus ipad because it's cluttered with birthday cards. Waiting for me, obviously. I like to mull them over and try to commit ideas and trends to memory before I get rid of them..so many of our card making themes and trends turn up on commercial cards, and I get a great sense of 'Ha!, we were doing that LAST year', when I recognise something like that! You can also see my To Do list pad. It only has four lines on it. Yeah, but each line is a really really big job! Happy Wednesday y'all, show me what you're up to with that laughably small spare time you have then. Join here:
