Well, it's been a fun time in the craft room this past 24 hours! Right now my head is spilling over with wedding stationery ideas - eek though, what if they don't like anything I manage to come up with by next Monday evening! This is the state of the bit of my desk I feel able to show as I left it yesterday evening:
here (great idea and worth a look!) and the hot fix wand - also one of Jules' brilliant gadget ideas :) I know that Elizabeth is very taken with the idea of hot fix nail heads and I promise you wouldn't regret investing in one. Just resist the temptation to touch the nail heads too soon after fixing them - ouch :)
There's an invitation sample with butterflies on and, although I could find aubergine card in Hobby Craft, there was no paper - and the butterfly punch does not do card at all - so, thanks to a little bit of inspiration (today's long word) I bought some aubergine envelopes to match the card and carefully dissected those instead. Not the cheapest way of doing things but at least I can play until I know exactly what shade Jess really has in mind. Carol also sent me some SU eggplant/aubergine card which I can show as an alternative if my definition of aubergine is too dark! Thanks Carol :)) Aren't crafters just the very best at diving in to help!!
Behind the butterfly card you can see a creamy white stick. This is sooo cool - a great find for clumsy folk like me (the arthritis in my right thumb doesn't help either - poor old crock!):
To see what everyone else is up to today and to have a good nose at their desks etc. - just hop over to Julia's here. Happy snooping :))
