Fit To Burst!

WV

I am sooooo excited ... I can hardly type straight! If I was clever at this point I would have made the text wavy ... coz that would have been reeeeeeally funny ... but I am not that clever!

Why am I sooooo excited??? ... well ... after lots of talking and planning with Lin Brown from L.B Crafts ... I can now announce that I will be doing some classes there ... in the new year ... How cool is that?LB1a1109

I am totally honoured that Lin chose me ... I LOVE her classes ... the organisation ... the planning ... the way they are run ... her teaching style ... the individuality of her projects ... the chocolate fix ... it is all wonderful and I hope that some of her flare, creativity, style and fabulous ideas will rub off on me ... If I ever get in the same division as her ... let alone the same league ... well I will be one happy lady!

Remember the Grunge paper pieces ... well ... you lot made me howl with laughter ... No Helen it is not grunge meccano ... and Carmen ... wings for Tim??? I will have you know the legend that is Mr Holtz can fly without wings :0) A crocodiles snout was close ... NOT! ... so no cigar for Nigel!

LB11109 I was in fact ... as many of you guessed correctly making some roof tiles for this little bird house.

The roof is made entirely from spiced rum metal and grunge paper using a Wendy Vecchi stamp. Her stamps are the best ... so versatile ... tile ... Geddit???

The walls are made with Dijon TSS metal ... which is my new favourite and the fence and window box is made from craft sticks ... I had so much fun making this ...

I have probably bent your ears enough for one day ... so I am off to make ... erm ... something else :0)

Congratulations on being 'hand picked' to teach at LB Crafts. How I wish I lived close enough to take a class with you. Your work and ideas are just stupendous.

Ohhhhhhhh so much better than wings. I thought you meant online classes and was getting all excited but reading the comments I'm guessing it's not? I may just sulk now. Preparing to pout.

What can I say but WELL DONE YOU. I would absolutely love to come to one of your classes but it's a wee bit too far. Will you now be eligible to sit at the teachers table with Sir Tim? Love the Bird house by the way. Again Congratulatons........
