Hmmmmm, seem to be buying rather than doing these days, although have started on lesson 4 of the Altered Book Tutorial.


Join in the WOYWW fun over at The Stamping Ground (hope this was short enough!)

Oh that's me too BJ, and no excuse! Hey, I like the leap day tag..and the lemon timer..what are you using that for - or like I do, have you brought in from the kitchen to remind you that something else needs attention in a few minutes..just as you're getting engrossed! Your AB is looking fab dahling!

I'm impressed with all the brief posts today-I know Julia suggested it but I do my post, THEN come check out what she and the rest of you are up to. I too, have been in a buying mood more than creating, not that I don't want to create but haven't had a lot of time. It looks like you are surrounded with lots of fun things and are making progress on the altered book. Judy #134

karen said...

Forgot to say, I had a peek around your blog and love all your fabulous tags and other makes so I have joined up to your blog!

sandee said...

Your comment that you left on my blog made me chuckle, I've had to read and re-read her instructions a gazillion times since starting this class! Glad someone else misses things too! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

sandee said...

Hey BJ, I used gesso first but only to do the see how it reacted with the vellum, and no, the words do not show through it, but I would love to see your pages, hint hint!!

I have been quite good this year on the buying front, only really letting rip with that new exclusive Clarity stamp, but I might be joining the slippery slope as I am down to my last piece of black card - an essential staple item. It looks as though you have a lot of fun stored up with all your goodies. xx Maggie #5

MaggieC said...

At the moment, the Clarity stamp is exclusive to us, as the artwork belongs to my daughter and I asked Clarity to make the stamp for us and paid for it. If enough people ask for it, maybe Clarity would produce it commercially, but we have not talked to them about it Hope that clarifies things for you. Thanks for asking. xx Maggie

Sherry Edwards said...

Short and sweet eh! I have the same Gesso as you - I can't say I like using it much, it's a bit smelly, still it does the job. I like your little drawer unit with the heart shaped knobs, very pretty!

Thanks for coming to see my desk too. The matchboxes are fun to alter - I like finding things to fill them with.
LOL about you and your son and the bells you could hear from my blog - it's actually a wind chime gadget - you can find it if your scroll right to the very bottom of my blog.

I'm off to check out your altered book now x

Neesie said...

Phewph... apologies for visiting so late but I'm new to WOYWW and its quite a task to get to visit everyone.
Your desk looks so busy and that's when you're not creating only buying? Wow :D

Thanks for letting me take a peek.
