I'm late to the Wednesday party this week because I had a little accident in my craft room... I lean't over the side of my chair to get something from the floor and it tipped over.  I thought I had just hurt my hip where I landed but as yesterday went on I realised I had done something to my opposite shoulder blade.  I think its triggered an old pinched nerve but it means no crafting or training today :-(  

This was my desk as I left it yesterday afternoon.  The pile of Echo Park Off The Record in the middle is for some DT work - I just love the summery colours!  The Simple Stories pile at the back is for my One Little Word project and I'll be taking that to the crop on Saturday.  The Promarkers still need labeling and putting away and the pile of magazines on the left still need to be ripped up for my OLW project too.  But it all looks better than it did the hour before!
I needed to seriously sort some stuff out as you can see.  I still can't find my heat proof mat and my heat gun which I must have put away at some point getting ready for the house sale but it will turn up.
I was trying to find my mat to make some enamel dots from some beads that I liberated from my daughter's supply.  They need a bit of work but I am pleased that I can use some of them.  The ones that are more blobby than dotty can be used by the children - win win!!  That brown bead that hasn't flattened at all was an experiment - it was an Aqua bead and didn't change shape at all but it was blue to start of with!
Talking of my daughter... she made this yesterday...  It says...

To Mummy and her friends, Love Bella

Make your own design on any coloured piece of paper.  I maked this when I was 5.

Bless her!  Setting challenges already!

Bye for now

  5. Ouch! Hope you heal quickly lovely. I've seen those home made enamel dots around the blogosphere and wondered if they make a horrible smell while they are melting?

  6. Great writing there, Bella - I can see you've been practising :-)
    Sorry to hear you've tweaked your shoulder - it's so easily done, isn't it? I did my back in a few weeks' ago and it blooming hurt..... Hope you're better before the Crop!
    Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

  11. Ouch - that sounds really painful! I hope you heal very soon. Your daughter sounds brill - obviously takes after Mum! I like the idea of making your own dots, and will look up a technique on the net, when I sign off here. Have a lovely week, and hope you find the heat gun and pad! Chris # 23 xx
