As you can see I've got my Big Shot out and I'm planning to have a good old play with this today. I am hoping that I might get some inspiration and eventually produce something I can enter for the Country View Crafts Challenge. This die of little houses was one of the first dies I ever bought and I still love it for its adaptability. The fabric is some I bought from the market and made some cushions from. I love it because in some lights it looks grey and in some it looks pink. I used it as a backdrop for a recent 'make' for Darcy's ARC. I was really excited because this piece appeared in Altered Arts Facebook Magazine. If you have time you might like to take a look at it on my blog post http://magpieheaven.blogspot.com/2013/06/magpies-second-artful-reading-review.html.
As you can see, mybright orange scissors are clearly visible at the moment; but for how long? Do they have magpie wings and fly away because they will undoubtedly disappear by the end of today! I put my ATCs on a notice board in our bedroom, but I've brought them down to have around while I work to remind me of those fellow crafters near and far crafting away with me. I wish we could all get together and have some inky and painty fun under the same roof; but the next best thing is WOYWW so I'm off to take a look at what everyone else is up to right now! OOh yes, and I am going to do a kind of gallery post of my ATCs with who sent what next week. Thanks again all!
