Seems ages since I posted anything on here but I haven’t been idle, lol. Had a couple of weeks away, visiting my bestest ever friend, followed by my OH having a week off work, so lots to do and some day trips with lots of walking when the weather allowed. I’ve done a bit of crafting, but not much stamping and have taken lots of photos but my card reader seems to be broken, so I can’t download the latest ones, even though I have some from the last few weeks.
Here’s my favourite fairytale house, where I spent my break.
And here’s the little house (at the bottom of the front yard) where I stayed while there.
I did some napkin art while there and have a couple of cards and a journal page in progress but they’re still drying, so I can’t finish them off yet, but here’s the other bit of crafting I’ve been doing.
This may look like ganache but it isn’t – and here’s a clue!
Here’s a bigger one, lol.
Yep, I’ve been soap making and have really enjoyed it. We started with a recipe in a magazine while I was away, but I enjoyed it so much, I got some more stuff when I got home and these are the results. They’re perfumed with various oils – mint, ginger, lime, lemongrass, grapefruit, mandarin, rose – and of course chocolate! I’ve tried a few different ingredients and recipes with varying degrees of success but it’s been so much fun!
Today, I stamped a card while waiting for the rain to die down a bit.
I used an Indigo Blu stamp, which is quite big, so I only used part of it, then watercoloured with inks and used a splatter stamp here and there, finishing off with a bit of glitter varnish over the petals, although you can’t see that, of course. I love these colours.
Will be visiting you all in the next week or so, as soon as life settles down a bit xxx
Forgot to add these… not too pretty when close up?
