Happy Wednesday to you all. It is mid-week again and time to take a tour around global crafty workspaces. Click HERE to join in.
This is going to be a quick post for me, as my eyesight is not so good this morning. I have had a busy time for the past week (Rich was away in France doing the Paris-Roubaix cycle ride and I seemed to have a lot more dates in my diary than usual) and my body finally said "no" yesterday. I am planning a quiet morning, and then off to take my little car for its MOT this afternoon.
Waiting patiently for me to find a few hours in the day (and some more energy) are 2 particular things.
Firstly, a used Melt Pot which I bought via a Facebook group. Always wanted one when they were being demonstrated on the tv a few years ago, but did not have the funds. Suddenly remembered them last month and when I went to Google to find one, it turns out that they are discontinued and the only new ones for sale are mostly in the US/Canada and expensive. I asked on a mixed media Facebook group for ideas on how to use UTEE without a Melt Pot, and was given a few ideas (which didn't work too well for me!), but then a lady offered me one for the grand sum of £10. It arrived with a book, some UTEE and dyes. Planning to make some embellies for ATCs/journals/canvas projects. Anyone got any tips?
Secondly, the lovely new (and gorgeous floral/gingham print) storage/organiser/transporting bags etc, which I treated myself to when I saw them on Create & Craft last month. I also bought a sewing machine bag and the larger holdall, but my courier never delivered them (which has happened twice over the years with C&C and Hermes!) and they were sold out when I asked for replacements. Again, when I find some spare time I will be organising my paints/embossing powders etc into a more easily used system (at the moment they are loose on an Ikea trolley - and I have to rummage around trying to find what I want, which drives me mad every time). I can also get my small collection of yarns etc into one place, and take stash/tools with me to craft workshops. I love storage and organisation!
I hope everyone is well and happy.
Breakfast time now!
