Back to Business as Usual!

SSS0301a I dunno ... that Christmas malarkey does n't last nearly long enough for the amount of effort we all put in ... here we are on the 3rd of January and before you know it ... well ... we will be into double figures.

Not that I am complaining you understand ... only 20 some odd sleeps and I will be at CHA with THE Wendy Vecchi and Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can move the planets with just a tap of a pokey tool and a single dot from a bottle of Ranger Black Enamel Accents. Of course the wonderful Lin will be there too :0)

I shall do me best to make sure you guys get to see what we see while we are there ... I say that ... I am not sure if there is some secret handshake thingy wotsit that prevents you from spilling the beans ... but have no fear ... if there is ... I shall just make it up :0)

Course ... after CHA ... it will be Stitches ... then ArtsyCrafts ... you know the one ... be still my beating heart!

Blimey ... don't I go on! SSS0301

The frame in the piccies started life as one of those Ikea cheapo jobbies and I have altered it using THE Wendy Vecchi Stamps and Grungepaper ... oh and some Graphic 45 Botanicabella paper ... the theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Stamp and show your newest stamp ... please join us ... and don't say you don't have any new stamps ... even if Santa did n't bring any ... and you have n't been shopping for an age ... I am guessing that most of you will have a new and unused stamp somewhere ... or is that just me :0) The lovely site sponsor ... Simon Says Stamp ... is giving away another delicious $25 to spend on stash!

Okay ... that's me ... take care all ....

Laters!

Methinks you should rig up some kind of peephole camera to your apron - or even better concuct some onto some specs and suddenly come down with a case of the bad eyesight!

The frame is gorgeous as always :)

Hi Linda - love the altered frame - it really is awesome. I too am pretty excited, as Sir Tim is actually visiting my neck of the woods next month (yay!) and I was lucky enough to buy a ticket for his class - they sold out PDQ and I was shaking when my payment went through at checkout!!
Happy New Year - Sylvia xx
