No desk shot this week, but I do have a finished project and a tale to tell.
Here's what I was working on last week. Trying to create an airmail look. I took the strip from the Butterfly Basics set and used markers to ink it up, alternating the blue and red. A bit of a faff, but I like the effect. I added tiny envelopes, punched hearts and finished off with some simple stamping.
It seems a lot of you were eager to know more about that unexpected shed. A few imaginations ran wild. You know who you are. After keeping you hanging for a week, I'm afraid the real story may be a bit of a let down, but here goes:
I told the children to expect a parcel while I was out teaching last Tuesday. The door bell rang and my girl answered. The chap asked if Mum or Dad were in, to which she replied, "No." He then said, "I'll just leave the shed on the drive then." She said, "OK" and shut the door. That would have been fine if we'd actually been expecting a shed delivery, except I would have had nowhere to park. My boy came to see what the 'parcel' was and she told him what had happened. He had the good sense to rush out and tell the chap that he didn't think we'd ordered a shed. On closer inspection of the sales docket the chap realised the shed was for no 16, we're 9!
Linking up with Julia and the deskers and hoping to get a chance to visit a few more this week.
