Playing around

Thought I would play around with the original scanned image of my' incisione su gesso'. think I will make a set of ATC's .

THE 3 S's

Hi there,
Here it's very hot and sunny and very, very humid, how about where you are?.

Sunday I went to a yahoo group meeting in Treviso, which is about 3 and a half hours by car from where I live. Luckily we were going against the traffic flow of people who were probably going to the beach, their side was chock-a-block, they weren't moving just stuck under the sun with that horrible heat............I really felt for them. I was in an air conditioned car and was sweating just looking at them all !!!!!!!!!!!.

Spent a wonderful afternoon creating and in my case CRAFTING , with a nice bunch of people. I took a mini course of INCISIONE SU GESSO, working with plaster , glue and paints . Lory the teacher was just fantastic and her work is out of this world. I had so much fun making different forms on the plaster ................can't wait to make more at home. Cris our host was definately the HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS................thanx Cris. Was nice to meet people I've chatted with on-line in person for the fist time.

Off to cool down under the air conditioner.................... I feel sorry for Betty our greyhound.........poor thing just keeps hitting that sack due to the heat and humidity.

Photo is of my creation I made in the mini incisione su gesso course, I've called it THE 3 S's, =

ATCs DONE !!!!

At long last I've got all my ATCs finished and posted out to their rightful owner's. I've been really behind, due to hospital intervention and then getting my greyhound Betty and mainly dog sitting her .........................or could it be that's she's been owner sitting me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL LOL

I'm just glad that earlier on in the year I went through a period of ATC madness and made tons more ATCs than what I really needed, so therefore I've had a good reserve for emergencies.

Here it's really hot and sticky...............yuk !!!!! can't wait for September when the cooler weather arrives. This humid weather just sucks the energy out of me and all I want to do is .........................nothing !!!!! Now I have Betty the greyhound I have to take her out twice a day for her walkies....usually early in the morning or later in the evening............I come back tired and soaking wet from sweating.................wouldn't mind if I lost a couple of inches or pounds !!!!!!!!!!!!!.

off to cool off

Hi there,
I haven't posted for the last week as I've been very busy doggy-sitting my new greyhound Betty. The first couple of days I thought "boy have I made a big mistake?", but now she is settling in and I wouldn't be without her.

Have just had a couple of minutes to surf some sites and blogs and I noticed the name CRAFT, CRAFTY, being used an awful lot, it got me wondering " how many of the people using this name actually have the surname CRAFT ? " .

My surname is CRAFT and a lot of people just don't believe me when I tell them in the arts and craft world.........when they realize I'm not joking they find it a little amusing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The MINI AMULET PURSE is from a design by RONDA KIVETT of KIVETT STUDIOS, it didn't take long to do at all and I was very pleased with the finished item.
