Thanks those of you who approved of the big, green fridge! It's been doing worthy service in the hot weather, providing lots of lovely ice. I can't get over how roomy it is compared with our tiny, old one. If the weather stays as hot as today - or gets hotter - I might just re-locate there - I'm sure I could fit in easily! I finished the stationery wallet I was making out of an Amazon book box I started last week and I'm planning to do a blog about these wallets in the near future! Sue, a treasured old friend, stayed the weekend on her way to a Story-telling workshop in Sussex and so liked the wallet she has commissioned me to make something similar for her friend, Dorothea back in Brussels where she lives now.
As always a click on the images will give a bit more detail. I have been really enjoying recycling these cardboard packages that usually just end up in the recycle bin. It's such a fun challenge to make something usable and attractive out of them. Eventually I hope to decorate this one with distressed book pages with poems on them, as Dorothea writes and reads a lot of poetry.
I've printed on fabric, used Frescos and my own Washi tape and lots of Treasure Gold. I'm also having fun with shrink plastic embellishments to finish them off. I hope to take some better photos of both this one when it's finished and the Asian one, so do pop in again if you'd like to see how they both turned out. Finally, I'd like to say a big Thank You to all those who drop by on WOYWW and leave such encouraging, friendly and sometimes hilarious (!) comments! You make Wednesday so special and I feel I'm really getting to know so many of you. Thanks to WOYWW I discovered I had a wonderfully creative Magpie Cousin in Canada so we could say WOYWW have put me in touch with family!!! 'Thank You' to all my lovely followers whether they have come via Google Friends Connect or Google+ - I feel so privileged to have your support, and a warm welcome to Alison who is my newest follower. I wish I could make you all a cuppa in my still shabby but - hopefully - one day to be chic kitchen! You're all invited to a party to celebrate when it's finished! I'm off now to check out what everyone has been up to this Wednesday.
