Caught the Bug

I took delivery of  a new order today and after unpacking and admiring my new goodies I did the sensible stuff first and  mounted the stamps, attached labels and found a home in my craft room for each new item...

and then I got them all out again and started stamping and cutting and generally trying everything all at the same time. It looks like a dervish ran through here...

I finally have the gorgeous ornament bundle (featured in the project on the front page of the seasonal catalogue) and I have stamped and cut loads of the ornaments tonight so that I can start trying different designs tomorrow - hopefully I will have something to share shortly.

You know how sometimes you look at something in the catalogue and you think oh that's nice (or unusual or useful) but you don't absolutely love it straight away... that is until you see something someone else has made and then it goes straight to the top of your wish list...well,  I felt a bit like that about the perfectly preserved set when I first saw it...but now I am  delighted that I finally have the perfectly preserved set and I am having such fun trying out all the ideas I have for that cute little jar...

The possibilities are absolutely endless...but there was one that was simply too good to resist. ...  and since the Ghoulish stamp set was still on my desk anyway,  it seemed pointless to even try ...

This little fella will be winding his way to a pal who caught a bug and  is a bit off colour at the moment - after all, they do say laughter is the best medicine.

Remember if you'd like to order anything from any of the current catalogues or fancy holding a workshop or coming to a class just drop me a line and I'll get right back to you.

Until next time, take care
