Friendly Plastic again

I had another play with Friendly plastic yesterday. It's a stress free process, which gives some satisfying results, I love working with it. It's just an excuse not to do other things that are more difficult. Some of them are for a swap, but then I never want to get rid of them. My craft room is littered with unfinished projects, and next week I really will get round to finish some of them. Yes, right !!!!!!!

The next jigsaw jam swap

These are the next 5 jigsaw pieces for the new Jigsaw Jam Swap. Once again I really enjoyed, doing these, even though three of them managed to choose the same theme of time. I was very pleased they did, as it's a lovely one to do. Angie's Diva, gave me a few anxious moments, but I am very pleased with the results. Jinny's Oriental was also a good one to do, especially with the colours chosen. All in all a very pleasant exercise.. When's the next one !!!!!!

Aimless on February 15th

Just can't get myself motivated this week, but as I'm up to date with my swaps on the various forums I'm on, my brain has gone into dozey mode.

However, I do have some jigsaw pieces I could do, and I have gesso'd them ready. I do like altering jigsaws, and have been round the charity shops in Llandrindod this morning. There are now a few children who won't be getting four board books, one with a pelican that makes a noise, and three odd shaped jigsaws, that will be a bit of a challenge. I also picked up three odd pieces of jewellery, at which point Peter pretended he didn't know me. As I got the lot for £1 65 (gave them £2), he was eventually quite impressed. I read the books to him on the way home. By this time, he had gone off being impressed. I also picked up 40 avocadoes for £2, I'll make some cream of avocado soup with those.

I will now do some creative, or tidy my workroom again.

13th February

I am now well behind with my blog, and seem to be peddling backwards. I stupidly thought that not doing so many ATCs, would free my time up. Wrong. I am now flitting between one project and another, and not getting very far at all. I must now concentrate my energy on the job in hand, and not on the next one I want to do.
I have managed to make two slide mailers, so have now achieved four of these, three on the same subject--Egypt
Note to self, No more Egypt for a while.

The Final jigsaw 5th Feb 2008

I have been at one of my daughters for a few days, so am a bit behind with my Blog, and outstanding craft work.

I have managed to finish my jigsaw today. I am really pleased with the result, so a big thank you to all who contributed towards it. I love the colours, and the way the pieces have fitted together.

The next one, what shall I choose for the subject. Something to make everyone think prehaps
