We have (at long last, I hear you say!) made a new YouTube video, and as suggested some time ago by a reader, this one is all about Crafty Individuals Masks, and simple ways of using them very effectively.
To compliment the video we have acquired the fabulous Sparkle Medium, and Gel, from Imagination Crafts, which we know you will love, and also some Gilding Waxes, from Creative Expressions, both of which you can find HERE on the Crafty Individuals Website - just look at those luscious colours - scrummy, yummy! I'm just crazy about them! If you watch the video you will see how you can use both mediums in combination with our lovely masks.
Whilst on the subject of videos, Julie Woodward (you might have watched Julie demoing our stuff before) has a new video out too which is perfect for learning the skills to make Birthday Books (great for Christmas presents), do have a look at it HERE. I have put links to various YouTube videos down the right hand side of this blog, so you can check back often to see 'whats new'!
Now I thought I would share a 'Trick' (for Halloween maybe?) played on Malcolm and myself this week by little 'Monty Moodle'!? We were having problems with the materials we use in our stamp making process, so very kindly our friends, Glenda and Adrian (of Chocolate Baroque fame), offered to help us out with some replacement materials which we needed quickly to begin to make up our latest new rubber stamps.
Glenda and Adrian live over at Barnard Castle, which is around 50 minutes away from our place at Yarm by car, so we (and little Monty Moodle) happily set off to collect the materials from them. About 40 minutes into the journey our car lost power, a warning light came on, and we had to pull into a lay by. Whilst we were waiting for roadside assistance to arrive (thank goodness for mobile phones) Glenda and Adrian, again so very kindly, set out to meet us at the lay by and bring us the materials we needed, as we weren't sure how long we would be and whether we would have to be taken straight back home again.
When they arrived we got out of our car to greet them and shut the doors to keep Monty safe and sound inside the car. To our great surprise and dismay we then heard a click, and found the the dog - bless him - had managed to stand on the central locking system inside the car, and had completely locked us out of the car - with the keys, and the bewildered doggy, unfortunately still inside.
When the roadside assistance eventually arrived the jolly gentleman had to break into our car as well as fix it!!!! Oh dear!
Just look at that sweet, innocent, little face!
Now its about time we wished you all a Happy Halloween - complete with an appropriate image by lovely Lucy - soooo perfectly SPOOKY!
