Clearly Trash....but I love it
I have had the most incredible day spent in the company of amazingly talented scrappers.
The drive from not so sunny Devon to Somerset was appaling....torrents of rain made visibilty near impossible on the M5.
It was a delight to have Fiona for company...its so lovely to meet the people behind the names on UKS.
We visited Crafty Pastimes and I stocked up on a few stash extras! Somehow a beautiful Kiwi and Chocolate AMM Uptown Chic Handbag just happened to fall into my basket....opppps...how did that happen????
On to the classes armed with the Lemon Drizzle cake....which went down just a little too easy!
Kirsty’s classs was just so “my thang”....very grungy...loads of black....really messy and sooooo “different”...I loved all the ripping and getting my mitts covered in paint! I just find it so theraputic to get the paints out and adore the different effects you can create by using acrylics on assorted surfaces.....this class was deffo “out of the box”.... the recycle box!
My album is now complete apart from the finishing touches....as soon as I have titivated and added a few more bits I will take some snappies to share....Im really pleased with it and Hubs and the guys think its "well cool" ...thanx Kirsty.xx
Emily is sooo way talented. She shared so many of her wonderful projects with us and is a walking inspiration. I really do adore her styley.
The class " Clearly Love" was just Wow! All my fav things to play with combined in one ....acetate, acrylics and ribbons....oh delectable ribbons.
We were blessed to have the company of the most adorable and endearing classroom assistant in the form of Emilys daughter, Ivy. Her sweet smiley was just so delectable.
Again not quite enough time to complete the project BUT I will complete it because I love it soooo much.
The classes were by far the most “Me” I have ever attended and Ive learnt so much today.....a huge thanx to Kirsty, Emily, Linz and of course not forgetting Lil' Miss Ivy.
It was great to sit and chat “shop talk” with Linz....nice to know Im not the only one who works 20 hour days whilst battling to find time to be a wifey and Mamma too.
The drive home was yuck! I dropped Fiona off and then the heavens opened. Crawling along at 40mph was not fun....especially when I wanted to get home to see my guys.
Jack coped quite well without me around....only one disaster....there was a bit of a meltdown and Hubs is now nursing a broken nose.....OUCH!!
I had great plans for tomorrow....walk on the beach with the pup....followed by lunch at the pub....then an afternoon finishing off my creations....doesnt look likely that any of that will happen as Hubs has to go back to the hospital to see a ENT doc....poor sweethaert....it really does look so terribly painful.
Off to bed for me.....
