I hope all is good with you, I am a little under the weather today and spent the morning in bed. Then I started to feel better so I got up and got showered and dressed and went to visit Mum and Dad.
I think the reason for feeling poorly is that yesterday afternoon I went into town and bought all the National Geographic magazines that I could find in the charity shops. I didn’t realise how heavy they were until I got about half way home. I suspect the weight of them hanging off my shoulder has disturbed the alignment of my neck and given me a headache. Still at least I got some good supplies for cutting up and collaging 🙂
Yesterday evening we had a social get together of Ryde Social Heritage Group including a Murder Mystery. I had to play the part of a nun (which I wasn’t too pleased about) but at least I wasn’t the victim or perpetrator of the crime! It was an excellent evening with good food and lovely people.
The spread above is the last page to do in my 6×6 journal and is the inside cover and first page. It has lots of layers and looks a bit grungey but I am reasonably happy with it. The stencil and sprays I used I won on a competition on my friend Caroline Dube’s blog. Thank you Carolyn! The only thing left to do now is the cover. That is always exciting for me and I hope I don’t mess it up.
I am progressing well with the preparations for my workshop, the poster and information sheet are almost finished and I’ve ordered a whole load of new pens for the participants to use on the day. I have drafted out the instruction leaflet they will be able to take away with them and need to start thinking about what else to include in their welcome pack.
I have to go now, we are having a friend visit us this evening and he has just arrived, so I need to go and be sociable.
See you soon
