Side Tracked!

DressC

I set out with the best of intentions today! I was going to clean every inch of my craft room!

I started under my desk ... that went well ... I found a box to alter that I had completely forgotten I had and three fab Papier Mache suitcases that I can vaguely remember needing on a visit to the NEC about four years ago!

Then it was going to be on top of my desk ... I had a quick blog hop to congratulate myself for doing under the desk and that is when I got sidetracked.DressB

Remember those fab little B Line dress stamps? ... Remember the tag bits from yesterday? ... well I decided to make stuff with them rather than just putting them away! Of course while I was on the blog hop I happened by Lord Tim of Holtz's blog ... as you do ... you know Tim ... the man that will carry on working until he is 150 if he chooses while rescuing the entire underwater population with just a jump ring and an ornate frame.

DressA Anyways ... while oohing and arrging over his post I see the Ranger Make and Takes from CHA. Well funnily enough there just happened to be a swivel clasp handy ... some shrink plastic all prepared for my class tomorrow ... and the rest as they say is ... well ... that really! Seeings as I am not at CHA ... I have made my own make and take ... not quite the same as actually being there ... but good fun anyway!

Only shame is that the top of my desk now looks worse than when I started! Hey Ho!

Laters!

LOVE your "take" on the make and take! Great idea for those unfortunate souls (like me!) who did not get to go see it all in person. It's definitely on my list to go one year. Thanks for sharing this great idea!

Weeell you know the tidying thing can wait! I lurrrve the make and take, fabulous ;-)
I was going to tidy my kitchen yesterday - 'cos not only do I have a very messy craft desk but a very messy kitchen-cum-sewing table but I was in and out of DD's to mind gangs of kids while she had to do other things I went in about 3 times and by the time I came back here for good the urge had gone off. I've been shopping today so it's still an utter mess! And tomorrow I'm going to DS's and staying over then going to a great-great nephew's christening :-O blimey makes me feel as old as Methuselah
