OMGosh... what a week! I had plans to do all my creative-ness and then ! 2 hospital appointments, then I ran out of ink, then Mum had a flood! I had NO time or ink to get anything made... so finally yesterday I got myself comfortable and made my two pieces... one for the TOFF challenge and for SPA (I have to give a massive shout out to Donna as it WAS my turn to do the sample this week)
ta-dah! this is my new hair colour.... think it suits me?
This card (yes card! I'm getting very card-i-licious these days!) is for The Octopode Factory Challenge, where the theme is QUOTES. I just love quotes and try to use them in my ArTwOrK all the time if I can. The is a Dr Seuss quote.
Today, Little A returns to school, as a 'post-16' student (this means 6th form to us normal folk) after 3 months being off school, waiting for exam results, etc. Miz Lils will be 'going to work' and so.... I will have time to make ART, not had much time to make much over the past year, with one thing and another, Miz Lils leaving school n starting her own business and my mum being ill I can finally FINALLY have time to have ART time. I cannot wait. I'm determined to have at least one day to myself and do what I want to do, it's been a long time coming. Hopefully, I will be able to get back into a routine, get a tad bit more organised (me? hah!) and even start trading again.
Here's my Little A going back to school earlier this morning. Hope it goes well for her, it was like her first day! lol (she'll probably get suspended for the turquoise in her hair! )
Had a great Sunday yesterday with the girls, just chillin'. Little A did some baking, yummy blondies and some biscuits, then we settled down for a little classic horror Nosferatu, music was very scary but the film was funny. Little A and I have had a great summer watching lots of horror flicks together. Summer ends on Thursday when Little A returns to school.
Then later, while Little A retired to her room to read Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, Miz Lils and I broke out one of our fave films to watch together, the story of Edie Sedgewick Factory Girl. Such a poignant film.
This week's theme on SPA, I'm so excited this week because I got chance to play with images from one of my uber fave shops on Etsy.... ART TEA LIFE by onecrabapple. Sandy has fab-U-lous collage images. I wish I could enter into the giveaway that Sandy has offered to one lucky entry into SPA this week.
If you want to have a chance to win 5 free collage sheets then go over and join in with SPA this week!
No Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore. This week's theme on The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge is STRIPES. I've used Raoul from the DADA sheet at the Octopode Factory and a stripey border stamp stars which are Octopode rubberstamps. Check out the challenge here http://toffchallenge.blogspot.com/
