I'm off to school...

Hi folks...it's been a busy old week...think headless chicken and cat with a scalded bum...but no time to recover from my weekend of fun with a little bit of drama thrown in...the crafty list was screaming at me from the cubbyhole...yep it's that  time of year when the cubbyhole crew pull on their kitting marathon hats for the Fiskars workshops at The NEC...2 projects this time round...crikey who's bright idea was that.  But I love my job...no pain...no gain as they say...so in exchange for 4 days of fun crafty time with 240 lovely crafty folks...there's a bit of work to do first...measuring-chopping-collating and lots of coffee drinking...
 with a little bit of sentiment stamping thrown in to add to the fun...
and before you know Project 1 is ready to go...
there's nothing quite like the "dangling the carrot" temptation of messy inky fun with Tim Holtz to motivate a crafty girl...it was just the "kick up the bum" incentive I needed to finish the job...and hoop-de-doo-de-doo both projects are done and dusted...waiting for that nice man from Hermes to work his magic and speed them on their way to Birmigham...
Now it's playtime and for all you folks who have joined in the fun of Creative Chemistry 102...hasn't it been absolutely fabulous...lunch breaks have never been so interesting...snuggled up on the sofa for a week of one to one lessons with our adorable Professor. Oh boy...if only school first time around had been this much fun...the Maestro of All Things Distress exceeded all our expectations...10 out of 10 and gold stars all round for a wonderful week in the classroom sharing his endless fountain of knowledge and cool...why didn't I think of that...new and inspirational ideas on using Distress products whether it's the latest releases or the stuff that's been gathering dust in a drawer.
Time to catch up on my Creative Chemistry 102 homework...Mr H is in the house...the tags and Distress Paints are ready...the mister's filled with water...it's going to be fun...
and what better way to end the week than for the Duke of Distress to include my Stencil Tag Book..
as one of his Blogworthy Links -4..wohoo how chuffered was I to have this honour for a second time...big thanks to Tim and Mario...you made my day and in celebration...more stencils are on their way to fill up said book.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

You well deserved to be on a blog worthy list! The tag book is a great idea and I'm thinking I have to have some of those stencils. The last time I stenciled it was some walls in my house many years ago. This will be more fun!!!!

Your tag book and your journal pages are exquisite. Especially your front cover. Thank you for sharing all your pictures with us.
Hope your having a well deserved rest today. Love and hugs x ChrisB

Hi Kath, I have one of the best times ever, doing CC102, loved every minute of it. I was so thrilled to see your name (again) on Tim's Blogworthy list, did a little happy dance! You so deserve your place on his list. Hugs, Anne x
