De-stressed and Ready to Play

Another manic morning of production....20 odd Baubles cards to make.... each card has 9 little berries

each berry has to be punched out, the edge inked...a little white highlight added and then onto a 3D foam pad..the most fiddly job in the world....these are the things you forget when making up samples....the last seven in the batch set out to dry ready to be personalised and let me tell you I am losing the will to live and gone are the nice  french manicured nails for the SECC...yuck check these hands out.....
I am now in major need of de-stressing....so rain jacket on and doggie walking boots and it's off to the forest for an hour of peace and quiet...OK it's drizzling....and the hair will end up all frizzy.....but hey will go great with the grotty nails...
Ready for home....tired, wet but almost de-stressed.....isn't he such a poser...his kennel name is "His Lordship Laurence"...well named me thinks...but one more thing ...pick up a Sub of the Day on the way home....yummy.
Fed, watered and exercised and now ready to play...probably won't get great pics later in the day so you are going to have to wait until tomorrow for the next instalment......See you later....Love Kath xxxx

Let me tell you a secret - I coloured my Mums hair yesterday and forgot to wear gloves - no big deal as this stuff does wash off (I must have concentrated on one hand and not the other as it turned a dark shade - I have blackish palms now ;) ) hee hee - fading slowly. Your cards are fabulous and remember you have to suffer for your art (I think)

Your doggie is gorgeous - my Amber is the same kind :) and I love subway and fancy one now !!!! deary deary me!!!

Ohh how posh does Buddy look!!!! He is gorgeous Kath. Hope your walk did you good. Fresh air cures all sorts I reckon :) And how patient are you re all those berries!!! GORGEOUS cards. And I have to say that I prefer mucky fingers to the manicured type cos you look like a real crafter with a few smudges of ink. And if there is glitter down your jumper or in your hair, then you look like a really REAL crafter lol xxx.
